Converting _IETableWriteToArray to _FFTableWriteToArray

Recommended Posts

I am embarrassed to ask this but it is not obvious to me after searching around the forum :> .  I am trying to convert a working IE script to read shipping information from a table in our shopping cart solution to FF. 

This is the working IE version:

Local $oTable = _IETableGetCollection($oIE,20)
Local $3dcartShipToTable = _IETableWriteToArray($oTable)

I grabbed the ff.au3 UDF and found the thread to replace the "/" in the code.  I can start it up etc.  Then I found the thread to grab the MozRepl plugin (which I did).  However, this code:

_ffStart("http://pacebands.3dcartstores.com/admin")
MsgBox("","","hold the phone")
$ffarray=_FFTableWriteToArray(11)
_ArrayDisplay($ffarray)

Results in this error:

__FFStartProcess: ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -new-window "http://pacebands.3dcartstores.com/admin"  "-repl 4242 "
_FFConnect: OS: WIN_81 WIN32_NT 9600 
_FFConnect: AutoIt: 3.3.12.0
_FFConnect: FF.au3: 0.6.0.1b-10
_FFConnect: IP: 127.0.0.1
_FFConnect: Port:   4242
_FFConnect: Delay:  2ms
_FFConnect ==> Timeout: TCPConnect Error: 10061
_FFConnect ==> General Error: Timeout: Can not connect to FireFox/MozRepl on: 127.0.0.1:4242
__FFSend ==> Socket Error
_FFCmd ==> Error return value
_FFTableWriteToArray ==> Invalid value: (INT) $vTable: 11

I am sure this is simple and I am doing something wrong but I am getting a bit lost in all the ff.au3 threads.  Can anyone set me straight?

Okay, another dumb question  ...

I can't get the table function to work.  I looked in the UDF and here is what I came up with:

; this works
Local $oTable = _IETableGetCollection($oIE,20)
Local $3dcartShipToTable = _IETableWriteToArray($oTable)
; is the syntax in ff for the above this? b/c it does not work
$ffarray=_FFTableWriteToArray(19)

Do I need to get the table object first and pass that?  The UDF suggests that the first parameter can be the index value if $sMode is defaulted to index (at least that is how I read it).  It also looks like you don't need to "attach" to the instance of FF like you do in IE.  If that is not the case, please let me know.  Here is the error I get:

__FFSend ==> Socket Error
_FFCmd ==> Error return value
_FFTableWriteToArray ==> Invalid value: (INT) $vTable: 20

It's telling you that it doesn't detect that many tables on the current page. The UDF needs to know which tab you intend to interact with, so you will need to establish that first (see _FFWindowSelect and _FFTabSetSelected) and then call _FFTableWriteToArray.

Thanks for hanging in there with me on this one - I think the FF UDF has a learning curve (or it could just be me).  Either way, I have another question ...

If the tab I am interested in is the only open tab I should be able to do this, correct?:

_FFWindowSelect()
_FFTabSetSelected()
$ffarray=_FFTableWriteToArray(20)
_ArrayDisplay($ffarray)

***EDIT*** I added

_FFConnect()

It now finds the pages etc.  However, it can't seem to find the table still ...

Okay, I have more info.  First, I was able to get some arrays back for tables.  However, not the one I want.  I also noticed that the index does not seem to follow the same rules as IE so my assumption I could use  the same table number seems wrong.  That said, this is the exact table I am after:

<table width="100%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0" style="padding-top:4px;padding-bottom:4px;" class="tablenooutline" id="Table13">
            <tr>
              <td class="searchheader">Name:</td>
              <td>Doe, Jane</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
              <td class="searchheader">Company:</td>
              <td></td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
              <td class="searchheader" valign="top">Address:</td>
              <td>555 Main Street<!--START: shipAddress2--><br>
                APYT #1<!--END: shipAddress2--> 
                <br>
                Boston, MA, 02110, US </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
              <td class="searchheader">Phone:</td>
              <td>6175551212</td>
            </tr>
            <!--START: addressType--><!--END: addressType-->
            <tr>
              <td class="searchheader">Method:</td>
              <td > Free Shipping 
                <!--START: editShippingMethod--><!--END: editShippingMethod--></td>
            </tr>
          </table>

The code I tried to use to get at it was:

_FFConnect()
_FFWindowSelect()
_FFTabSetSelected()
$ffarray=_FFTableWriteToArray("Table13","id")
_ArrayDisplay($ffarray)

I get this error when searching on that table:

_FFTableWriteToArray ==> General Error: //table[@id='Table13'] not found.

I do not believe frames are in use.

#include <FF.au3>
#include <Array.au3>

Local $url = 'orderpage.html'

_FFConnect(Default, Default, 3000)

_FFWindowSelect($url, 'href', False)
_FFTabSetSelected($url, 'href')

$ffarray=_FFTableWriteToArray("Table13","id")
_ArrayDisplay($ffarray)

With the above code, the array would get created but it's contents were incorrect. I found what appears to be a bug in _FFTableWriteToArray. Find the following line in FF.au3:

$aTable[$j][$i] = $aRows[$i + 1]

and change it to:

$aTable[$j][$i] = $aRows[$j + 1]

      I started working on this program in the summer of 2008 then I stopped cause I faced some problems I couldn't overcome back then. Now that I've practiced more and have become a better scripter/programmer I'm releasing the program to the public to get some opinions. I know it's not a new concept but it's the first program I started besides some small stuff I did just for practice! I won't post the source code yet because it's still under construction, although I'm sure I've posted early stages of the code with bugs in the past in some topic...
      What I wanted was a simple, small, serverless program that would work without installation cause I wanted it for where I work, so I ended up with this!
      I have attached some images of various versions, also visit the forum thread.
      The package includes s!mpL3 LAN Messenger and the full change log.
      Current version 2.9.9.1! [04/07/2019]
      Check the Change Log below!

      Hey there,
      below function returns an "object collection" (not sure if that's the correct term) of 'a' elements grabbed from within //*[@id="J_DetailMeta"].
      However, I need the returned collection not to include objects with 'aria-disabled = true'. Is there a way of removing specific objects from such a collection?
      Func GetObjectList($sPicker) $oDetailMeta = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "J_DetailMeta") If Not @error Then $tags = $oDetailMeta.GetElementsByTagName("ul") For $tag in $tags $data_ID_value = $tag.GetAttribute("data-property") If $sPicker = "color" Then If $data_ID_value = '????' Or $data_ID_value = "????" Then $oReturnList = $tag.GetElementsByTagName("a") EndIf ElseIf $sPicker = "network" Then If $data_ID_value = '????' Then $oReturnList = $tag.GetElementsByTagName("a") EndIf ElseIf $sPicker = "storage" Then If $data_ID_value = '????' Then $oReturnList = $tag.GetElementsByTagName("a") EndIf EndIf Next EndIf Return $oReturnList EndFunc $oColorList = GetObjectList("color") For $oColor In $oColorList If StringInStr($oColor.GetAttribute("aria-disabled"), "true") <= 0 Then ; remove object from the collection ??? EndIf Next

      Hi,
      I am looking for a way to automate login to a Internet Banking website (https://bank.tymedigital.co.za/) and all of the examples that I could found still do not solve my issue with this website.
      In order to Login, the user need to enter their Identity Number and Password the click the Login button.
      Inspecting the Elements in Chrome are as follow;
      Identity Number
      <input autocomplete="username" placeholder="Please enter your South African ID number" maxlength="13" type="tel" class="form-control" value=""> Password
      <input autocomplete="current-password" placeholder="Enter password" type="password" class="form-control" value=""> Button
      <button type="button" class="btn btn-yellow btn-block">Login</button> Any assistance or directing me to a solution will be appreciated.
      Thank you,
      Lourens

      my FF.au3 does get included but my script does not open firefox. 
      here is my code so far:
      #include <FF.au3> _FFStart("https://www.google.com", Default, 0) I am using firefox portable version 52.0 Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  
      The code runs but nothing happens. I think the FF.au3 cannot find or connect to the firefox portable.

      edit: this is probably in the wrong place, can a moderator move it to wherever it belongs?
      ----------

      is there any way to completely disable TCPTimeout and make TCPRecv() wait indefinitely? maybe setting it to 0 or -1 or something? 
      the docs doesn't seem to mention any way to disable it

      - the underlying C code would set SO_RCVTIMEO to 0 , aka

      DWORD timeout=0;
      setsockopt(s, SOL_SOCKET, SO_RCVTIMEO, &timeout, sizeof(timeout));
