IE - _IEFormElementOptionSelect - not selecting item

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

When I use:

ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oSelect, 'Outerhtml') & @CRLF)

then I get:

<SELECT style="DISPLAY: none" id=id-type-select class=ui-combobox-select jQuery17203851737750552209="58"> <OPTION value=krs>KRS</OPTION> <OPTION value=regon>REGON</OPTION> <OPTION selected value=nip>NIP</OPTION></SELECT>

But when I want to select:

_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSelect, 1, 1, "byIndex")

or

_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSelect, 'REGON', 1, 'byText')

Then, unfortunately, I do not get the desired effect, I am thinking of changing COMBO element in IE browser.

I used this function ( _IEFormElementOptionSelect ) many times, but this time I'm doing something wrong.
 
I have read the documentation again, I tried different possibilities and options, but unfortunately still do not know where making a mistake.
 
Please a hint, I do not want a solution.
I prefer to read and think, the better to consolidate knowledge.

Are you sure you are focused on the proper object?

After this:

_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSelect, 'REGON', 1, 'byText')

 

Do a consoleoutput of this:

ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & $oSelect.value & @CRLF)

If it  shows the proper 'value' attribute (of your selection...in this case regon), then it is selecting.

I'm thinking you are focused on the wrong select, since that select is 'DISPLAY: none', or hidden.

...When all else fails, _ieaction (,"focus") prior to the action generally helps.

I'd suggest looping through all selects, and outputing their outerhtml...or, focus on, and then execute this in the loop...it will create a box around the select, so you can verify the exact select you need is found:

$oIE.document.activeElement.style.border="thick solid #FF0000"

Just a warning.  A SELECT element has one or more OPTION children.  It is the Option.Selected property that actually holds the value for the SELECT (think about Multiple Select).  The SELECT.VALUE property may or may not work - it is in IE, but is not part of the standard and falls apart when multiple select is used.

Since jQuery is apparently in use here, I'd suggest that there may be other events expected in addition to what is called by _IEFormElementOptionSelect (take a look at the source in IE.au3).

I read your both answers.

Thanks.

 

I slowly move forward.

<td>
        <div id="id-type-wrapper">
          <select class="ui-combobox-select" id="id-type-select" style="display: none;">
            <option value="krs">KRS</option>
            <option value="regon">REGON</option>
            <option selected="selected" value="nip">NIP</option>
          </select><span class="ui-combobox" id="id-type-select-combobox-wrapper"><input class="ui-state-default ui-combobox-input ui-autocomplete-input ui-widget ui-widget-content ui-corner-left" role="textbox" aria-haspopup="true" aria-autocomplete="list" autocomplete="off"><a tabindex="-1" title="" class="ui-button ui-widget ui-state-default ui-button-icon-only ui-corner-right ui-combobox-toggle" role="button" aria-disabled="false"><span class="ui-button-icon-primary ui-icon ui-icon-triangle-1-s"></span><span class="ui-button-text"></span></a></span>
        </div>
        <input name="krs" id="krs" style="display: none;" type="text" value="">
        <input name="regon" id="regon" style="display: none;" type="text" value="">
        <input name="nip" id="nip" type="text" value="">
      </td>

Now I use that code

Local $oSPG_INPUT_KRS = _IEGetObjById($oIE_Form, 'krs')
Local $oSPG_INPUT_REGON = _IEGetObjById($oIE_Form, 'regon')
Local $oSPG_INPUT_NIP = _IEGetObjById($oIE_Form, 'nip')
$oSPG_INPUT_KRS.value = ''
$oSPG_INPUT_KRS.style.display = "none"
$oSPG_INPUT_REGON.value = ''
$oSPG_INPUT_REGON.style.display = "none"
$oSPG_INPUT_NIP.value = 585
$oSPG_INPUT_NIP.style.display = "inline-block"

and when I submit then I get positive results from website.

But still element does not change visually ( I mean before submiting)

So I want to ask how to delete "style property":

<input name="nip" id="nip" style="display: none;" type="text" value="">

; This is the desired target content
<input name="nip" id="nip" type="text" value="">

$oSelect.style.csstext = ""

...but that's just a workaround, if the site is supposed to update those inputs, then you should let it...maybe you need to have a blur event, or a focus onto another object, etc

finally sufficient for my needs is the fact that:
