_IEAction($o_button, "click") issue?

Recommended Posts

ok, kind of a workaround, but it's good enough for me, and some people here actually mentioned part of this solution - I simply compiled what I needed to .exe using the new AutoIT version and ran that. Other scripts which rely on autoit execution engine are not changed and still use the old version.

Thanks everyone for helping out.

There was a bug introduced and soon fixed in a version around that time that caused COM method calls to fail silently - only for methods that had no return value like .click and .submit (core AutoIt, not IE.au3).

Your workaround is sound, but if you had to do this without compiling, use _IEAction to give the element focus and then use ControlSend to send Enter to the browser window.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
