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, I'm trying to find a text value inside of a html.
      This is what the line looks like normally:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">TEXT HERE</span> </p> The text then changes to a non breaking space:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">&nbsp;</span> </p> And then it changes back to normal text but it's different every time.
      Can I code this so that it grabs the text every time it changes and has a variable that represents it?
      I currently have this inside of my loop:
      $span = .document.getElementsByTagName("span") For $text In $span If $text.value = "&nbsp;" Then Sleep(50) MsgBox(0,0,0) ;messagebox to test if it can be found, but I don't know how to grab the text EndIf Next The problem is that there are many other lines in the html that have the same span but are called "line3", "line5", etc and the one I need is from "line1".
      I will appreciate if anyone can help with this!

      I have kept below line to wait for IE to load the site completely and continue.
      _IELoadWait($oIE)
       
      But, the code is continuing without waiting for it and I my execution is failing as the elements are not loaded completely.

       
      Any suggestions for alternate code to wait for the browser to load completely?

      We can select elements in IE using their IDs as below.
      Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "x-auto-16-input") But to one button in the webpage, there is no ID to it.
      In selenium we have option to select this element using the CssSelector and clicked the button using below code in c# selenium.
      driver.FindElement(By.CssSelector("button.x-btn-text")).Click(); What is the alternative for this in AUtoIT?

      Good morning everyone
      I worked a bit on a little project of mine, and I managed to do what I was trying to do, or, automate a quiz in AutoIt.
      Now, everything works fine but, in order to achieve what I'm trying to achive, I'd like to make this script run faster.
      I'll attach a portion of the code in order to let you understand what my script does.
      $objIE_h1 = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "h1") ; Take the text of the answer If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura degli h1 nella pagina. - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else For $objElement In $objIE_h1 $strInnerText = $objElement.innerText Next Select Case StringInStr($strInnerText, "QUESTION") ; Here is the question ; PS4 PRO $objSpans = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "span") ; Answers are stored here For $objElement In $objSpans If $i >= 4 Then $strAnswer = $objElement.innerText ; Take the text of the answer n° 0, 1, 2, 3 If StringInStr($strAnswer, "CORRECT ANSWER") Then ; If I match the correct answer, then, I have to click on the input with answer id = answer_i $j = $i - 4 $objInput = _IEGetObjById($objIE, "answer_" & $j) If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura della risposta #" & $i & " - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else _IEAction($objInput, "click") If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante il click sull'elemento. - Errore: " & @error) Else ConsoleWrite($j & ") Risposta: " & $strAnswer & @CRLF) ExitLoop EndIf EndIf EndIf $i+=1 Else $i+=1 EndIf Next $i = 0 $j = 0 This is what my script does.
      Questions are 20, in which I have 15 multiple choice question, 2 images ( on which I use _IEImgClick() ), and 3 text inputs ( a simple send with the text I have to enter ).
      How can I make all of these, faster?
      If I reach this goal, I've probably done one of my best goals in life, and I'd like to share my happiness with you, giving a huge donation to this fantastic community!
      Thanks for your help
