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.

      Hi All,

      I am very new to AutoIt and scripting in general and have a question about IEFormGetObjByName. The help function says:
      _IEFormGetObjByName ( ByRef $oObject, $sName [, $iIndex = 0] )
      But how do I find what to enter for $sName? In the example below, it says that it can be found by viewing the HTML source. So I went to the google home page, clicked Ctrl U to view the source, and cant figure out how they determined that the $sName is 'gbqf'. Can someone explain this process to me? Thanks in advance!
      ; Get a reference to a specific form by name.  In this case, submit a query
      ; to the Google search engine.  Note that the names of the form and form
      ; elements can be found by viewing the page HTML source
      #include <IE.au3>
      Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.google.com")
      Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "gbqf")
      Local $oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "q")
      _IEFormElementSetValue($oQuery, "AutoIt IE.au3")
      _IEFormSubmit($oForm)

      Hi!
      Does anyone have any idea why Test() returns 0, while Test2() returns 1?
      #include <IE.au3> MsgBox(0, "", Test() & " " & Test2()) Func Test() Local $oHTML = ObjCreate("HTMLFILE") $oHTML.body.innerHTML = FileRead("Test.html") Return IsObj($oHTML.getElementsByClassName("example")) EndFunc Func Test2() Local $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1) Return IsObj($oIE.document.getElementsByClassName("example")) EndFunc Sample Test.html I open in IE before testing:
      <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <p class="example"></p> <div class="example"></div> </body> </html> I'm receiving html text in a response to http request, I need to parse it fast and easy, getElementsByClassName would have been ideal. I'm using 3.3.12.0 version.

      Hi,
      I'm new to AutoIt but it looks great.
      I want to get the text from Internet Explorer when hovering the mouse over an image, the statusbargettext function appears to be the way to go.
      When running via a hotkey I return a blank, but the msgbox works. Do you know what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks
      HotKeySet("!x", "RecordURL") ;wait for ALT-a keystroke While 1 ;loop forever to wait for the keypress Sleep(100) ;no need to kill the CPU WEnd Func RecordURL() #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) Local $sText = StatusbarGetText("Internet Explorer") MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Internet Explorer's status bar says: " & $sText) EndFunc
