help with IE Form elements when the GUI reloads

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

this code works as expected, except the page reloads and current OPTIONs are lost. How can I keep them persistent?

_IELoadWait($oIE)
Sleep(2000)

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "myform")
$tz = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "OidSB1.17.2.19.1.1")
If @error = "0" Then
For $t in $tz
    $tzop = _IETagNameGetCollection($tz, "OPTION")

    For $tzo in $tzop
        $o = $tzo.innerText ---->> problem is here
        Sleep(4000)
        _IEFormElementOptionSelect($tz, $o, 1, "bytext")
            ;ConsoleWrite($tz.name & " Codec: " & $tzo.innerText & @CRLF)
            ConsoleWrite("Codec: " & $tzo.innerText & @CRLF)
            FileWrite($file, "  Codec: " & $o  &  @CRLF)
            Sleep(8000)

    Next
    ExitLoop
Next
ElseIf @error = "3" Or  @error = "4" Or @error = "7" Then
    ConsoleWrite("Can't find the Codec selection option" & @CRLF)
EndIf
Sleep(2000)

below is the error that I get,

C:autoitFTSuite.au3 (399) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
$o = $tzo.innerText
$o = $tzo.innerText^ ERROR

You've been here 5 years but you don't know this isn't the place to ask for this type of help? This should have been posted in General Help & Support.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I have been using AutoIt without issues for 5 years, forgot how to post. I changed it already

Reading your code, the outer FOR...IN statement will only get processed once due to the ExitLoop. Also, you use the statement

For $t in $tz

but your next statement uses the original variable (the collection) rather than the object. I would change the line to this:

$tzop = _IETagNameGetCollection($t, "OPTION")

DanP2, I tried your suggestion but it exits without setting any value since $tz references a form on the main GUI.

Code to be automated is

<TD class=input

codec <SELECT id=OidSB1.17.2.19.1.1 onchange=setEcam(this) name=OidSB1.17.2.19.1.1>

<OPTION value=h264>h264

<OPTION selected value=jpeg>jpeg

</OPTION>

</SELECT>

</TD>

After it sets the parameter to h264 or jpeg, then it should exit but failies with

C:autoitFTSuite.au3 (399) : ==> Variable must be of type "Object".:
For $tzo in $tzop
For $tzo in $tzop^ ERROR

You need to add some error checking to your script. Based on your description, it sounds like the call to _IETagNameGetCollection

 is erroring out (not finding the desired elements).

the problem I believe is that the anchor

_IELoadWait($oIE)
Sleep(2000)
$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "myform")

is loosing its objects when the GUI refreshes for changes to take effect and need to re-anchor. Which means I might be in the same loop forever.
