Clicking OnClick Links in Div

Recommended Posts

Alright, so I am just getting into AutoIT and honestly I am loving it so far.

First project was going to be a program to automatically log me into my game account, click the vote page and click the links so I can vote. I seemed to have come across 2 problems and it seems no matter how much I google possible solutions I cannot come up with the answer.

1. I am unable to click these specific links on a page, I got the View Source and the Inspect element, but they share the same ID's and when I plug 1 of them into the source it cannot find it so I am utterly confused about this, links to both will be provided.

2. I am wondering how you click a pre-existing tab in IE since the links I click open a new tab, I need it to select the previous tab to click the other 2 links as well.

#include <IE.au3>

Call ("signIn")

Func signIn ()
    Global $oIE = _IECreate ("www.molten-wow.com/login/")
;Variables for Molten Web Page
    Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "strID");Username Field
    Local $password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "strPW");Password Field
    Local $button = _IEGetObjByID ($oIE, "checkBtn");Login Button

;Actions Set by Me
    _IEFormElementSetValue ($username,"USERNAME");Enter Username
    _IEFormElementSetValue ($password,"PASSWORD");Enter Password
    _IEAction ($button, "click");Click Obj Password Button
_IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.molten-wow.com/account/#1:1:0:0:0")


The Elements in which I am trying to click

                            <form id="vform1" action="/account/vote/" method="post" target="_blank">
                            <input name="id" type="hidden" value="1">
                            <div class="cpBtn" style="width: 95px; height: 38px;" onclick="document.getElementById('vform1').submit();">
                                <p style="margin: 11px auto;">Open WoW</p>
                            <form id="vform2" action="/account/vote/" method="post" target="_blank">
                            <input name="id" type="hidden" value="2">
                            <div class="cpBtn" style="width: 95px; height: 38px;" onclick="document.getElementById('vform2').submit();">
                                <p style="margin: 11px auto;">XtremeTop100</p>
                            <form id="vform3" action="/account/vote/" method="post" target="_blank">
                            <input name="id" type="hidden" value="3">
                            <div class="cpBtn" style="width: 95px; height: 38px;" onclick="document.getElementById('vform3').submit();">
                                <p style="margin: 11px auto;">ArenaTop100</p>


I just checked out the view source of it and it doesn't show the buttons at all so I am guessing its loading via javascript which is why autoit cannot detect it. I am curious if there is a way of making the mouse click on the general location of the div? Still working out all the kinks here and boy is there alot of them so far.

But welcome to the AutoIt forum - and see you soon with a legitimate question I hope. :)
