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, 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
