Stuck using _IELinkClickByIndex

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am having trouble using _IELinkClickByIndex.

In my code below, near the end, when I use _IELinkClickByIndex it clicks the link I need which creates a pop-up however the script just hangs, it seems to just get stuck or be looping when I use it.

Can anyone see whats wrong with my code?

Func Navigate()

_IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
Local $iNumLinks = @extended

   For $oLink In $oLinks


      If StringInStr($oLink.href, "loadFaultTracker.do") Then

         _IEAction($oLink, "click")
         ExitLoop
      EndIf
   Next





_IELoadWait($oIE)

Local $sMyString = "Launch application"
Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
   For $oLink In $oLinks
      Local $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText")
      If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then

         _IEAction($oLink, "click")
         ExitLoop
         EndIf
   Next

      _IELoadWait($oIE)
      Sleep(2000)









Local $oFrames = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE)
Local $iNumFrames = @extended
Local $sTxt = $iNumFrames & " frames found" & @CRLF & @CRLF
Local $oFrame = 0
   For $i = 0 To ($iNumFrames - 1)
      $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE, $i)
      ;~    MsgBox(0, "", $oFrame.id)
      $sTxt &= _IEPropertyGet($oFrame, "innertext") & @CRLF
      $o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($oFrame, "MainForm")

      $oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "faultrec_type_single")
      _IEFormElementSetValue($oQuery, "LLU")

      Sleep(500)


      $oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "fault_id")
      _IEFormElementSetValue($oQuery, "1-25084694984")
      Sleep(500)

      $oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "btnApplyFilter")


      _IEAction($oQuery, "click")
      Sleep(3000)
;~  _IELinkClickByIndex($o_form, 203)
   Next
   ;~ MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Frames Info", $sTxt)


Local $oFrames = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE)
Local $iNumFrames = @extended
Local $sTxt = $iNumFrames & " frames found" & @CRLF & @CRLF
Local $oFrame = 0
   For $i = 0 To ($iNumFrames - 1)
      $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE, $i)
      $sTxt &= _IEPropertyGet($oFrame, "innertext") & @CRLF

      $o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($oFrame, "MainForm")
      ;~ _IELinkClickByIndex($o_form, 203)
      ExitLoop
   Next



_IELinkClickByIndex($o_form, 203)

Global $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)

;~ MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Body Text", $sText)

;~ ClipPut($sText)
;~ _IEQuit($oIE)
EndFunc

There are ways around that.  The .click, is not going to return until the new window is closed (script will wait)...you can create a second script to click, or focus on the element, and controlsend {enter}.

Hi jdelaney,

Thanks for the reply.

The script still hangs when all windows are closed...even if it didn't surley there must still be a more effective or clean way to continue interacting with the new window within the same script? :unsure:
