Latest _IEFrameGetObjByName now returns $_IEStatus_NoMatch

I'm struggling to get my code working in the latest IE.au3 (3.3.9++) that came with the newest stable version of AutoIt (v3.3.10.2). There's an old, but perfect example DaleHohm >posted that illustrates the problem:

 

...true, iframe is not a normal frame, but it is included in the frames collection and can be accessed with this function. Here is an example:

#include <ie.au3>
; Create browser window with an iframe
$oIE = _IECreate()
Sleep (3000); sleep needed with IE.au3 T1.4 and below
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oIE, "<h1>Test</H1><p><iframe src='about:blank' id ='foo'></iframe>")

; Get reference to iframe named foo and write to it
$oFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE, "foo")
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oFrame, "hi"); string appears in frame

Dale

 

From the debug console:

IE.au3 T3.0-1 Warning from function _IEFrameGetObjByName, $_IEStatus_NoMatch (No frames matching name)

When I reverted to an older IE.au3 (3.3.7.20++), everything worked as expected.

Searched the forums, looked at the update history in the IE.au3 header, nothing's jumping out at me that I need to do differently to get this to work with the latest Include. Any ideas?

Edit: I tried to use the latest beta version's IE.au3 (3.3.10.0) and noticed that debugging was turned on, this is the result:

--> IE.au3 T3.0-1 Warning from function _IEFrameGetObjByName, $_IEStatus_NoMatch (No frames matching name)
--> IE.au3 T3.0-1 Error from function _IEBodyWriteHTML, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

I turned on debugging ($__IEAU3Debug = True) with the older version (3.3.7.20++) that still works... but it gives some interesting errors:

--> COM Error Encountered in ie_scratch_test.au3
----> $IEComErrorScriptline = 3690
----> $IEComErrorNumberHex = 80020006
----> $IEComErrorNumber = -2147352570
----> $IEComErrorWinDescription = Unknown name.
----> $IEComErrorDescription = 
----> $IEComErrorSource = 
----> $IEComErrorHelpFile = 
----> $IEComErrorHelpContext = 
----> $IEComErrorLastDllError = 0

I was hoping someone could confirm with the replicator whether or not it works for them in the latest stable AutoIt. If the script works, the text box below "Test" should say "hi" instead of being blank. I'm using Windows 8.1 that comes with IE11. Running it as admin did not change the result. Thanks!

I hate to bump, but my last edit added a lot more debug info. Can someone try the example script and report whether or not they have the same issue? Thanks!

Use this one instead:

_IEGetObjById

Also, my signature does the work of picking out the proper function for you (first link)...all you need is a "xpath" to the object.


IEbyXPATH-Grab IE DOM objects by XPATH IEscriptRecord-Makings of an IE script recorder ExcelFromXML-Create Excel docs without excel installed GetAllWindowControls-Output all control data on a given window.

Looking at your xpath thing... I'm not having any luck with it. Things seem to behave as expected when they're not in an iFrame, I think that's the main problem I'm having. How does the test script behave for you?

Also, I can access the iFrame with _IEGetObjById, but nothing inside it.

I've finally figured out what's wrong with my old code not running on the new AutoIt with the new IE.au3:

The old version of IE.au3 had a bug/feature that allowed you to use _IEFrameGetObjByName on frames/iframes by either their name or id tag. The new version only works if there's a name tag, and won't match by id tag. Unfortunately, I need to access a frame that's only referred to by id tag. 

jdelaney's suggestion _IEGetObjByID does not seem to work on frames or iframes... and if there was a name tag for the frame, you would use _IEFrameGetObjByName over _IEGetObjByNAme... But, there isn't an official _IEFrameGetObjByID yet.

The only way you can access it now is by _IEFrameGetCollection or there's also a UDF available: >_IEFrameGetObjByID...

Examples:

; Old code based on http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/23752-issue-with-iframe/?p=168616
#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oIE, "<h1>Test</H1><p><iframe src='about:blank' id ='foo'></iframe>"); iframe only uses ID tag
$oFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE,"foo"); Only works on older IE.au3 that would take id or name tags.
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oFrame, "hi") ; Fails to change frame on newer versions of IE.au3

; Solution
#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oIE, "<h1>Test</H1><p><iframe src='about:blank' id ='foo'></iframe>"); iframe only uses ID tag
$oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE,0) ; Works!
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oFrame, "hi")

; jdelaney's suggestion for using _IEGetObjById
#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oIE, "<h1>Test</H1><p><iframe src='about:blank' id ='foo'></iframe>"); iframe only uses ID tag
$oFrame = _IEGetObjById($oIE,"foo"); No errors, but...
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oFrame, "hi"); writes over entire page instead of iframe

; Alternate scenario with name tag using _IEFrameGetObjByName
#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oIE, "<h1>Test</H1><p><iframe src='about:blank' name ='foo'></iframe>"); Changed ID tag to name tag
$oFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE,"foo"); Works because there's a name tag on the iframe
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oFrame, "hi")

; Alternate scenario with name tag using _IEGetObjByName
#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oIE, "<h1>Test</H1><p><iframe src='about:blank' name ='foo'></iframe>"); Changed ID tag to name tag
$oFrame = _IEGetObjByName($oIE,"foo"); Does not work on iframe, changes entire page
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oFrame, "hi")

      Hi, I'm trying to find a text value inside of a html.
      This is what the line looks like normally:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">TEXT HERE</span> </p> The text then changes to a non breaking space:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">&nbsp;</span> </p> And then it changes back to normal text but it's different every time.
      Can I code this so that it grabs the text every time it changes and has a variable that represents it?
      I currently have this inside of my loop:
      $span = .document.getElementsByTagName("span") For $text In $span If $text.value = "&nbsp;" Then Sleep(50) MsgBox(0,0,0) ;messagebox to test if it can be found, but I don't know how to grab the text EndIf Next The problem is that there are many other lines in the html that have the same span but are called "line3", "line5", etc and the one I need is from "line1".
      I will appreciate if anyone can help with this!

      I have kept below line to wait for IE to load the site completely and continue.
      _IELoadWait($oIE)
       
      But, the code is continuing without waiting for it and I my execution is failing as the elements are not loaded completely.

       
      Any suggestions for alternate code to wait for the browser to load completely?

      We can select elements in IE using their IDs as below.
      Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "x-auto-16-input") But to one button in the webpage, there is no ID to it.
      In selenium we have option to select this element using the CssSelector and clicked the button using below code in c# selenium.
      driver.FindElement(By.CssSelector("button.x-btn-text")).Click(); What is the alternative for this in AUtoIT?

      Good morning everyone
      I worked a bit on a little project of mine, and I managed to do what I was trying to do, or, automate a quiz in AutoIt.
      Now, everything works fine but, in order to achieve what I'm trying to achive, I'd like to make this script run faster.
      I'll attach a portion of the code in order to let you understand what my script does.
      $objIE_h1 = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "h1") ; Take the text of the answer If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura degli h1 nella pagina. - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else For $objElement In $objIE_h1 $strInnerText = $objElement.innerText Next Select Case StringInStr($strInnerText, "QUESTION") ; Here is the question ; PS4 PRO $objSpans = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "span") ; Answers are stored here For $objElement In $objSpans If $i >= 4 Then $strAnswer = $objElement.innerText ; Take the text of the answer n° 0, 1, 2, 3 If StringInStr($strAnswer, "CORRECT ANSWER") Then ; If I match the correct answer, then, I have to click on the input with answer id = answer_i $j = $i - 4 $objInput = _IEGetObjById($objIE, "answer_" & $j) If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura della risposta #" & $i & " - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else _IEAction($objInput, "click") If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante il click sull'elemento. - Errore: " & @error) Else ConsoleWrite($j & ") Risposta: " & $strAnswer & @CRLF) ExitLoop EndIf EndIf EndIf $i+=1 Else $i+=1 EndIf Next $i = 0 $j = 0 This is what my script does.
      Questions are 20, in which I have 15 multiple choice question, 2 images ( on which I use _IEImgClick() ), and 3 text inputs ( a simple send with the text I have to enter ).
      How can I make all of these, faster?
      If I reach this goal, I've probably done one of my best goals in life, and I'd like to share my happiness with you, giving a huge donation to this fantastic community!
      Thanks for your help
