Cannot Submit IE Form

8 posts in this topic

Hi I am trying to submit an IE Form:

<FORM encType=multipart/form-data method=post name=menuForm action=/nac-cp/default.html><TABLE>
<TBODY>
<TR>
<TD>Inspect:</TD>
<TD><INPUT onkeydown="if (event.keyCode == 13) {do_menu_form_submit('quickSearch_searchFieldId_');return false;};" title="<accessNode>:<rackId>-<shelfId>-<slotId>-[iMA#/BOND#]<portId> / <label> / <Id> / LABEL=<portlabel> / LBL=<portlabel> / CLABEL=<customerlabel> / CLBL=<customerlabel> / INSP=<Id> / INSPECTION=<Id>" value="BM0LCPLB:1-1-6-36  " type=text name=quickSearch_searchFieldId_> <INPUT type=hidden name=EventSource> <INPUT type=hidden name=stack> <INPUT type=hidden name=currentPosition> <INPUT value=81BF3F3055F23467DA83BE94A943C651.nwanalyser-nac-cp-jboss-slave-1 type=hidden name=JSESSIONID> </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></FORM>

The blow code does not work for me. There is no button for this form. From what I understand "onkeydown="if (event.keyCode == 13)" is the enter button. Does anyone know how I could gracefully send 'enter' to this without Winactivate or some such?

$na = _IEAttach("myurl.html", "url")
      Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($na, "menuForm")

      Local $oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "quickSearch_searchFieldId_")
      _IEFormElementSetValue($oText, "Somedata")
    _IEAction($oForm, "$oForm")

This line doesn't make any sense:

_IEAction($oForm, "$oForm")

Did you try:

_IEFormSubmit($oForm)

You could also use ExecScript (search the forum for syntax / examples) if the standard _IEFormSubmit doesn't work.

Hi Danp2

Sorry, I rushed that question.

Yes I did try   _IEFormSubmit($oForm) however that did not work. I'll do some research on ExecScript and let you know how it goes.

 

 

Cheers!

I added below in

$na.Document.parentWindow.execScript("key = document.createEventObject(); key.keyCode = #{key}")
$na.Document.parentWindow.execScript("document.getElementById('#{element_id}').fireEvent('onkeydown', key)")

and

$oText.fire_keydown_on($oForm, 13)

But im still scratching my head.

Any suggestions how I can send 'enter' or a cariage return?

Also _IEFormSubmit($oForm) does do somthing. It reloads the page that its on but it does not submit my input.......

Just execute the code directly, as in:

$na.Document.parentWindow.execScript("do_menu_form_submit('quickSearch_searchFieldId_');")

Ta daaa!! Excellent!!!

That works!

I was pulling my hair out with that one. I did try somthing similar to that earlier however I was puting my parentheses in the wrong place.

 

Thankyou soo much Danp2.

      I am not sure on how to grab the innertext I want. Is there a way I can just grab the second line, or is there a better way to do it all together? 
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach("Form Details") $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "Col3") ;Phone MsgBox (0,"Oops",$oDiv.outertext) When I use this code I get

      I have come across a weird issue that I am not sure how to solve. For some reason, whenever I call WinActivate in certain scenarios instead of opening the single window that already exists, it will create a new blank tab. It should be able to be recreated with this:
      AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) Sleep(1000) For $i=0 To 10 WinActivate("Internet Explorer") Next I am not actually doing this in my code, it is just to demonstrate the fact that new tabs keep popping up. Does anyone know why this happens?
       
      EDIT: So I am not sure how reproducible this is, because it only happens every once in a while for me. I will update with more info if I find out anything.

      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("website") Local $oForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE) For $oForm In $oForms MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Form Info", $oForm.name) _IEImgClick($oForm.name, "Reserved.ReportViewerWebControl.axd?OpType=Resource&amp;Version=12.0.5522.0&amp;Name=Microsoft.ReportingServices.Rendering.HtmlRenderer.RendererResources.TogglePlus.gif", "src") Next I am having trouble clicking an image.

      <input name="VsMasterPage$MainContent$LoginUserControl$LoginForm$FormsAuthLoginContainer$LoginButton$InternalButton" class="Button" id="VsMasterPage_MainContent_LoginUserControl_LoginForm_FormsAuthLoginContainer_LoginButton_InternalButton" onclick='javascript:WebForm_DoPostBackWithOptions(new WebForm_PostBackOptions("VsMasterPage$MainContent$LoginUserControl$LoginForm$FormsAuthLoginContainer$LoginButton$InternalButton", "", true, "Login", "", false, false))' type="submit" value="Sign In"> I am trying to click the sign in button on this page. 
      I have tried by class, text, etc 
      Here was my last attempt
      $oButtons = _IETagNameAllGetCollection($o_IE, "button") For $oButton in $oButtons If String($oButton.value) = "Sign In" Then Sleep (1000) _IEAction($oButton, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next This did not work either.

      Go create a quick account in Zapier and go to https://zapier.com/app/dashboard and make some Zaps!
      Just need to click the specific instance of an .open-menu button and then click its a.run (anchor) element.
      Doing this IE.au3 script just causing to click its container element:
      $target = 1; Target the first instance #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach("Dashboard - Zapier") $count = 0; $tags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If $class_value = "open-menu" Then $count += 1 if $count = $target Then MsgBox(0, "Instance: ", $count) ; $tag.fireEvent("onmousedown") ; _IEAction($tag, "click") ; $tag.fireEvent("onmouseup") ; Or this but not working ; $tag.Click EndIf EndIf Next I also tried to do it using FF.au3
      $target = 1; Target the first instance #Include <Array.au3> #Include <FF.au3> $count = 0; If _FFConnect(Default, Default, 3000) Then $aArray = _FFXPath( "//div[@class='open-menu']", "", 7 ) ; _ArrayDisplay($aArray) For $tag in $aArray $count += 1 if $count = $target Then MsgBox(0, "Instance: ", $count) _FFClick($tag) EndIf Next EndIf Error: _FFClick ==> No match: $sElement: [number]
      Could some help me how to click such buttons on such kind of a dynamic page?
