Filling out my email in IE

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey everyone,

I am have a ridiculous time trying to fill out my hotmail email within Internet Explorer. I dont want to use the SMPT rought and want to use my Hotmail login online to do so. I dont find the forms that I need to fill out, i.e. email subject field, email body text field and recipient email field. I dont have much experience with with all the IE stuff but have been working on it non stop for the past couple days. I dont know whether its because there is a frame surrounding the fields i want to fill or what. I look at the source but cant seem to find what I need.

Any guidance would be appreciated. All I wont to do is fill out my email with a recipients email address, put a subject in and write the email text then send. I never thought it would be this difficult for me.

Thanks in advance,

Mason

_IE_FillMyEmail($MyIEWindow)

Func _IE_FillMyEmail($oIE)
    _IEErrorNotify(False)
    $oForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE)
    $Index = 0
    For $oForm In $oForms
        $oFormElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm)
        If IsObj($oFormElements) Then
            dbg("IsObj($oFormElements) = true")
            dbg("Form Element Type: " & $oFormElements.type)
            $IndexElement = 0
            For $oElement In $oFormElements
                dbg("Element Type: " & $oElement.type)
                dbg("Element Name: " & $oElement.name)
                ;If I could find what im looking for I would put what to fill out here
            Next
        Else
            dbg("IsObj($oFormElements) = false")
        EndIf
        $Index += 1
    Next

EndFunc ;==>fill out my email

So, what site are you attempting to access? Live.com?

This appears to work just fine:

#include <IE.au3>

Local $cUrl  = "https://login.live.com"
Local $cUser = "test@test.com"
Local $cPass = "testpass"

Local $oIE = _IECreate($cUrl, 1)

Local $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0)
Local $oName = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "login")
Local $oPass = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "passwd")
Local $oButton = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "idSIButton9")

_IEFormElementSetValue($oName, $cUser, 1)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oPass, $cPass, 1)

_IEAction($oButton, "click")

_IEFormElementSetValue($oName, $cUser, 1)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oPass, $cPass, 1)

_IEAction($oButton, "click")

 

Yeah, I was able to get in ok with this:

Func _IEAutoLogin($sUrl, $sUsername, $sPwd)
    $oIE = _IECreate($sUrl)
    _IEErrorNotify(False)
    $oForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE)
    $Index = 0
    For $oForm In $oForms
        $oFormElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm)
        If IsObj($oFormElements) Then
            $IndexElement = 0
            For $oElement In $oFormElements
                Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "line1")
                If $oElement.Type = 'password' Then
                    $oPwd = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, $oElement.Name)
                    _IEFormElementSetValue($oPwd, $sPwd)
                    For $i = $IndexElement - 1 To 0 Step -1
                        $oUser = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, $i)
                        If $oUser.Type = 'text' Then
                            _IEFormElementSetValue($oUser, $sUsername)
                            ExitLoop
                        EndIf
                    Next
                    If $oForm.action <> "0" And Not StringInStr($oForm.action, '.php') Then  ;submit
                        _IEFormSubmit($oForm, 0)
                        _IELoadWait($oIE)
                    Else  ;click
                        For $i = $IndexElement + 1 To $IndexElement + 10 ;check the next 10 elements
                            $oButton = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, $i)
                            If $oButton.Type = 'submit' Then
                                _IEAction($oButton, "click")
                                ExitLoop
                            EndIf
                        Next
                    EndIf
                EndIf
                $IndexElement += 1
            Next
        EndIf
        $Index += 1
    Next
    Return $oIE


EndFunc   ;==>_IEAutoLogin

 

The problem is once I'm logged in and looking at the compose email screen I can't find the forms. If they are actually form i need to be looking for. If you are logged in the address is https://bay175.mail.live.com/default.aspx#page=Compose

      Hi all,
       
      Anyone have any idea how to close all open tabs except a specific one I manually open.  Assuming I don't know what is open in all the tabs except just the one I want to keep open.
       
      I didn't want to use sendkeys and I was trying to use the following code to list the title (or url) of the 3 open tabs and  after I got that part working I would just close the other 2. This sample only displays the title of the first open tab
      #include <IE.au3> Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800 $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com") __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) Local $aIE[1] $aIE[0] = 0 Local $i = 1, $oIE While 1     $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", $i)     If @error = $_IEStatus_NoMatch Then ExitLoop     ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "title") & @CRLF)     ReDim $aIE[$i + 1]     $aIE[$i] = $oIE ;each item holds object     $aIE[0] = $i ;first item holds count     $i += 1 WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE[0]) ; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab  
      Thanks for any and all help

      I'm able to click on a drop box (please see code below) but i'm unable to select "Buy" or "Sell"".
      Local $sMyString = "Please Select" ;############ ENTER ############# Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE) For $oLink In $oLinks Local $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText") If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then _IEAction($oLink, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next

      Hey,
      i would like to set a value into an INPUT field.
      Checked the _IEFormElementSetValue function but that does require _IEFormGetObjByName and this is where the problem comes in. The input field I want to write to is not a part of a form tag. It is part of a table.
      <input type="text" class="w2" id="nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od" name="nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od" onchange="GLOBAL.pocetInzerceNZ(&quot;nabidka_vozidel_formular&quot;,&quot;tach_od&quot;,&quot;&quot;);" autocomplete="off"> I tried this but that didn't work:
      $oDownloadSamples = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od") _IEFormElementSetValue($oDownloadSamples, "123") If you want to try the site I'm working with is https://www.tipcars.cz/. There is a menu on the top left hand side and if you click the "vyhledat" button the input fields will show up.
      Thanks

      I am now able to populate the dropdown menus at https://www.tipcars.com/.
      The dropdowns are dynamic and do not have a Text value, only ids.
      Is there a way to get all the available options from a dropdown?
      $url = "https://www.tipcars.com/" $oIE = _IECreate($url) _IELoadWait($oIE) $oDownloadSamples = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo") _IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDownloadSamples, "C") Above code, populates ID 'C' into the 'druh' dropdown, which results in selecting 'užitkové'. 
      Is there a way so I can grab all of the options from the dropdown menu? I could easily grab all the IDs but I am afraid they will change in the future so I would much rather match the text titles and assign the option IDs grabbed from site.
      This is what the options are according to Chrome:
      <select class="w1"id="homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo"name="homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo"onchange="try{NABIDKA_VOZIDEL_FORMULAR.naplnSelectZnacka('homepage_vyhl_frm');GLOBAL.pocetInzerceHZ('homepage_vyhl_frm','vozidlo');}catch(ex){odeslatJsChybu('formHOMEPAGE onChange 1: ' + ex.message, 'formHomePage onChange 1', -1);}"> <option value="A" style="color: black;">osobní a terénní (56 334)</option> <option value="C" style="color: black;">užitkové (4 333)</option> <option value="D" style="color: black;">nákladní (3 742)</option> <option value="E" style="color: black;">autobusy (56)</option> <option value="F" style="color: black;">obytné (373)</option> <option value="G" style="color: black;">přívěsy (1 179)</option> <option value="J" style="color: black;">motorky (780)</option> <option value="S" style="color: black;">pracovní stroje (605)</option> <option value="L" style="color: black;">ostatní (235)</option></select> Also, this cannot be grabbed by _INetGetSource.
      Thanks
