IE UDF - Referencing a form with no name

Recommended Posts

Speleologist

I'm trying to automate some report generation from a series of iFolder servers using the IE UD. This involves clicking links on forms within a frame. The first form, in the frame "MAINFRAME" I can successfully use _IEFormGetObjByName and then _IEFormImageClick, I then click on a link in "NAVFRAME" which loads a new form into "MAINFRAME", inside a table. This form has no name attribute. Where I'm struggling is how I can correctly reference the button I need to click in this form. The script is below, together with the HTML for the parent page and the relevant frame. I have tried several methods including using the same form object, treating it as a frame and using frame in=mage click. I have been unable to find a way to click the required button. Help appreciated!

#include <IE.au3>

$Username = 'if_admin' ;InputBox('iFolder Server Reports', 'Please enter the iFolder admin account User name', '')
$Password = '1folder' ;InputBox('iFolder Server Reports', 'Please enter the password for the iFolder admin account', '', '*')

$oIE = _IECreate('https://ifolder.cheshunt.hertscc.gov.uk/iFolderServer/Admin/Reporting.htm', 0, 1, 1)
_IELinkClickByText($oIE, 'Continue to this website (not recommended).')
$oFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE, 'MAINFRAME')
$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oFrame, 'mainform')
Local $oUsername = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "User")
Local $oPassword = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, 'Password')
_IEFormElementSetValue($oUsername, $Username, 1)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oPassword, $Password, 1)
_IEFormImageClick($oForm, '/iFolder/adminconsole/buttons/btnlogin_en.gif' , 'src')
$oFrame2 = _IEFrameGetObjByName ($oIE , 'NAVFRAME' )
MsgBox (0 , 'Error' , @error )
_IEFormGetCollection ($oFrame2)
MsgBox (0 , 'Error' , @error  & @CRLF & @extended)
_IELinkClickByText ($oFrame2 , 'User Accounts' )
MsgBox (0 , 'Error' , @error )
_IEFormImageClick ($oForm , '/iFolder/adminconsole/buttons/btnExport_en.gif' , 'src' )
MsgBox (0 , 'Error' , @error  & @CRLF & @extended )

_IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0)

EDIT:

try use:

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0)

instead of

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oFrame, 'mainform')

That was what I needed, although it has to be

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oFrame, 0)

to access it in the frame.
