WinHttp button click

8 posts in this topic

Hello there,

I have a button and I want to click it before sumbiting a form because it changes the editor and allows me to use @CRLF with _WinHttpSimpleFormFill. Or I hope it does.

So anyone has any idea how to click a button???

I haven't tried anything special because I am not very familiar with winhttp.

I asked trancexx but it is kinda rude to ask her everytime so i ask here as well ;)

Cheers.

Look the help file examples.

#include "WinHttp.au3"

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)

Global $hOpen, $hConnect
Global $sRead, $hFileHTM, $sFileHTM = @ScriptDir & "\Form.htm"

; Example1:
; 1. Open APNIC whois page (http://wq.apnic.net/apnic-bin/whois.pl)
; 2. Fill form on that page with these values/conditins:
; - fill default form
; - set ip address 4.2.2.2 to input box. Use name propery to locate input
; - send form (click button)
; - gather returned data

; Initialize and get session handle
$hOpen = _WinHttpOpen()
; Get connection handle
$hConnect = _WinHttpConnect($hOpen, "wq.apnic.net")
; Fill form on this page
$sRead = _WinHttpSimpleFormFill($hConnect, "apnic-bin/whois.pl", Default, "name:searchtext", @IPAddress1)
; Close connection handle
_WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect)
; Close session handle
_WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen)

; See what's returned (in default browser or whatever)
If $sRead Then
    MsgBox(64 + 262144, "Done!", "Will open returned page in your default browser now." & @CRLF & _
            "When you close that window another example will run.")
    $hFileHTM = FileOpen($sFileHTM, 2)
    FileWrite($hFileHTM, $sRead)
    FileClose($hFileHTM)
    ShellExecuteWait($sFileHTM)
EndIf

saludos

As far as i know that function fills a form and sumbits it.

If i wrote right on the first post i want to click a button which changes a setting and then use _WinHttpSimpleFormFill to fill a form and submit it...

_WinHttpSimpleFormFill fills fields with data and then submits it... Now maybe i am not understanding it right...

You can't click a button with WinHTTP functions from what I'm seeing in the help file for it.

You'd need to open the page with IE and use the IE UDF to click the button for you before you can submit the form data, which kind of defeats the whole usage of WinHTTP seeing as how you can probably do it all with the _IE* functions.


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 can't find a solution with winhttp but i think it is possible... Of course i won't mix ie with winhttp...

Any other opinions???

What makes you think that it's possible? What have you read that points to that conclusion? What have you tried?

Nothing. I just don't find it difficult. It must be a simple request which will send a request for the button but i cant get it working. Or i hope it is.
Still _WinHttpSimpleFormFill fails with @CRLF while filling fields with data.

Btw  now that i am thinking, that button changes the rich editor to a source editor where you can use line breakers. I will check the source code to see if that source editor has a different name or id to use _WinHttpSimpleFormFill with it's ids.
