Move mouse to text (not link) on html page

9 posts in this topic

Hi everyone. Was just wondering if i could get pointed in the right direction for a solution to my problem. I have read alot in the _IE function library but still not really sure the best way to do it.

My work uses a web based management system and on a certain page there is a table. I want a script to copy to the clipboard a certain item number that I input, either via a GU input field or just by using CRTL + F.

 That part I can manage but then I want the script to select the value in the adjacent row which is the number of units. Not sure if i need to somehow move my mouse to the selected item number then move it right a certain distance or if there is some other handy trick to do it easily. also the column with the units is displayed like   " 12 units "  However all i want to copy from that cell is the numeric value " 12 " . Any help would be greatly appreicated. Thankyou.

Let's start with this part. You say you can manage copying a certain item number from the table to the clipboard. How about posting what you have, so we can see what you're doing. If you're already able to get the data out of one range in the table, why can't you obtain the data from the adjacent range?

Hi Jlogan. Im using the AU3 record program to simply send the keystrokes for CRTL+F and find the item number. Haven't figured out how to do it by inputing that item number via a GUI. I've looked into ControlClick()  ,   _IEpropertyget and a few others but not sure which is the right one to use.

#include <INet.au3>#include <IE.au3>
Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.yahoo.com", 
1)
_IELoadWait($oIE)
$page = _INetGetSource("http://au.yahoo.com/?p=us")
WinSetState("[CLASS:IEFrame]", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
$pageArray = StringSplit($page, @CRLF)
For $i = 1 To $pageArray[0]    If 
StringInStr($pageArray[$i], "party") Then _IEAction($pageArray[$i], "click")
Next

Here I'm trying to get it to open up yahoo.com then find the text word "party" in the html then click it or ideally move the mouse there.

i wouldnt do anything with mouse clicks. you can do it all through the page source. thats what i would do. it will also be very easy to get the adjacent item number since it looks like it could be set up as a data table. if you get the page source, you can do a stringinstr for original_value=" or do a StringRegExp like this:

StringRegExp($sHTMLSource, "original_value="\d\d\d\d\d\d", 1)

as long as the item numbers r always 6 digits, this will give you all of the item numbers in the table.

GlennRogers,

How about sticking to just the one topic at a time. ;)

Did this work for your issue? I am looking to see if my web based form has a table, and will like to see your finished product.
