Checking a checkbox that is inside an iFrame

Recommended Posts

Wolfiesaxah

Hi guys, I need help as I have worked for more than 18 hours in trying to get this resolved but couldn't. There's a registration page that has an iframe and I need to put a check on the checkbox inside that iframe. The iframe's content is pointing to external source.

 

Could anybody please share a complete simple _IE code to put a check on any of the checkbox in that page so I can analyze it and post my solution here? I am having trouble understanding the syntax of AutoIt. I tried this for hours and couldn't get it to work. The checkbox ID is showing as NOMATCH in AutoIt error report so I thought I had to reference the iFrame first but the iFrame too shows as NOMATCH when they are both sitting there.

Perhaps you could post what you've tried so far.  That way, we could see your code and steer you on the right path.

I'll only warn once, this is the 2nd time I've seen that url, if the questions are the same or having to do with the same thing, keep them in one thread.

No bumping within 24 hours of your original post regardless of how anxious you might be.

You have not studied the _IE* functions as I've suggested in that 20 hours, there are few functions to utilize, and all of them have a specific point and easy to see what you must utilize.

All the same, it's simple enough...

#include <IE.au3>


Global $goIE = _IECreate("https://www.hudhomestore.com/Listing/BidderRegistration.aspx?sLanguage=ENGLISH", 1)
If Not IsObj($goIE) Then
    MsgBox(16 + 262144, "Error", "Could not create browser object")
    Exit 1
EndIf

_IELoadWait($goIE)

Global $goFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($goIE, "inWin110")
If Not IsObj($goFrame) Then
    MsgBox(16 + 262144, "Error", "inWin110 was not found")
    Exit 2
EndIf

Local $goCheck = _IEGetObjById($goFrame, "chkReceiveSystemEmail")
If Not IsObj($goCheck) Then
    MsgBox(16 + 262144, "Error", "chkReceiveSystemEmail was not found")
    Exit 3
EndIf

; scroll control into view so you can see
$goCheck.scrollIntoView()

If $goCheck.checked Then
    $goCheck.checked = False ; uncheck
    $goCheck.fireEvent("onChange")
    $goCheck.fireEvent("onClick")
    MsgBox(64 + 262144, "Info", "Unchecked checkbox")
Else
    $goCheck.checked = True ; check
    $goCheck.fireEvent("onChange")
    $goCheck.fireEvent("onClick")
    MsgBox(64 + 262144, "Info", "Checked checkbox")
EndIf

But I really hope you're not using IE-11 with the Dec 18 update  :nuke:


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

      I was wondering how I read data inside of a iframe. I would like to be able to click something inside a iframe. However, I can't even find the tag. 
      The id and name change all the time so I can't use those. 
      The code highlighted in blue is what I am trying to click. (second picture)
      Here is what I have tried.
      $target = "" $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName("div") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If string($class_value) = "s_92 altstyle s_93 s_94" Then $target = $tag ConsoleWrite("Tag Found " & $target.outerText&@CRLF) ExitLoop EndIf Next

      Hello,
       
      for some script I need to investigate the states checked/unchecked, hidden/shown, enabled/disabled to several checkbox controls.
       
      Any suggestions to this script to retrieve the information in a better way?

      Hello,
      I am struggling in merging GUITreeViewEx, Shelltristate and enhancing to handle a third state that means : some items under are selected.
      I have difficulties handling expand order and key Space (especially when node is collapsed).
      Here the zip with UDF and and example.
       
      The problem I might need some advice to handle : 
      1- When load Treeview, have a correct settings of the checkbox for a tristate tree
      2 - Handle keyboard used for walking in tree
           Chicken is checked and  Steak is unchecked
          When walking with arrow to Meat, it gets unchecked
      3 - When node is collapsed and checked thru keyboard (space)
         the middle state is possible which should not
      Here is joined an animated gif showing the 3 problems
       
      Thanks for your advices

      Hello, 
      I'm trying to write a script that can go to a specific work related webpage, then grab the html text out of a known recorded comment field. I have a basic understanding of HTML, but I'm confused by the website as when I open up source code I get something called frames/iframes. Not sure what that really is.... 
      Anyways using chrome and opening up source code it made a little more sense, and could trace all content I want falls within what I see as "top/mainFrame (retrieve.do)/notesActionHistoryHistory (iframeComments.jsp)/bcwebapp:8500/oinc"
       
      Is there an easy way to make a variable contain all the html text within this frame?
       
       
      Background:
      Website is on companies intranet, and each project has it's own page. I need a way to go through an excel list of projects, open up the webpage to the respective projects, then grab all the comments for those projects, then paste everything into 1 text file. My idea is to copy the excel list into an array, then use it to go one by one to the different webpages and copy the comments into an array, then paste it all into a text file. I've pretty much got all the pieces figured out, except how to grab the actual html comment data. I can do it manually but who wants to do that...
       
      Thanks for any help in advance

      Hello,
      I have used this forum to get help many times. I thought it was time to (hopefully) help others.
      I created a script that reads a text file with a list of videos, displays the videos in a GUI with checkboxes next to the names, and displays the selected videos. This will become a part of a larger script I am creating to test a video player. The tough part for me was creating the GUI and Dynamic list of videos. I had a lot of trouble finding samples to help me, but finally found one  written by Melba23. The link is in the code, so he gets credit for helping! I also have not used arrays much and they are very picky about looping through the arrays without getting the dreaded error " Array variable has incorrect number of subscripts or subscript dimension range exceeded."  However diligence paid off!
      To run this code, take the video names commented below and create a videos.txt file in your script execution directory. You can put however many video names in this list. Thus the dynamic features of the code.
      Cheers!
