Get all HMTL elements with same ID - not in table

Recommended Posts

I apologize for the simplicity of this question - I don't know much about HTML elements and I did a search on the forum first.

I just started using the _IETableWriteToArray function in some of my project and I love it because it allows me to easily grab lists and stuff them in an array.  Now I am trying to do the same thing with some HTML that does not use tables.  However, the HTML IDs for the sections containing the data I want to read repeat themselves throughout.  Example (where "foobar" is repeated throughout):

<div id="foobar" style="width: 440px; float: left; padding-left: 10px">DATA<br>MORE DATA<br>MAORE DATA<br>MORE DATA</div>

I know that I can refer to a given element like this:

Local $element = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "foobar")

However, I am wondering what is the best way to grab the values of all the same ID elements and get them into an array? Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks, that does help a lot.  It brings back everything including all tags etc but I can parse a lot of that out.  I recently saw a post where someone was using jquery and au3.  They did something like this:

$testValue= $oIE.document.parentWindow.jQuery('#objectID').val()

I don't know much about jquery but I believe that would probably eliminate the need to whittle down the innerhtml that comes back.  Are you familiar with that approach?  Could that be used to get a collection of the values that I am after while ignoring the html? 

EDIT: I also noticed that the :

$element.InnerHTML

Only seems to work for the first element with that ID.  If there is more than one the others seem to be ignored.  Any ideas on that?

.. not familiar with jQuery

you could also try with the InnerText property,

 

EDIT: I also noticed that the :

$element.InnerHTML

Only seems to work for the first element with that ID.  If there is more than one the others seem to be ignored.  Any ideas on that?

In an HTML page there should be only one element with a specific ID, in fact a specific ID can be assigned to only a single element

If you see more elements with the same ID maybe is because you are in presence of "frames", that is like if you have more pages in the same page, so, if you want to refer to elements of different pages (frames), you need to get references to single frames first.

      Hello.
      I create a function that saves the log to an html file.
      File html are included picture (conversion to Base64)
      Everything works OK.
      But I do the actions:
      screenshot to the png file (smaller than bmp) per disk (  _ScreenCapture_Capture(@ScriptDir & "\screenshot.png")  ) convert image from disk to base64 I need help to optimize the script:
      - screenshot to memory (do not save to disk) - convert this object to png in memory - invoking the conversion of png image from memory to base64 The first step _ScreenCapture_Capture("") create handle to an HBITMAP in memory
      How to convert image in memory to png?
      How to use Func _ConvertToBase64
      I attach my code
      #include <ScreenCapture.au3> #include <Date.au3> Global $RaportFileName = @YEAR & "-" & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & "_" & @HOUR & "_" & @MIN & "_" & @SEC & ".html" $text = "This is first line text" & @CRLF &"and this is next line" _Raport($text, 1) FileWrite(@ScriptDir & "\" & $RaportFileName, "</pre></html>") ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _Raport ; Description ...: ; Syntax ........: _Raport($sText1[, $Screen = 0]) ; Parameters ....: $sText1 - a string value. ; $Screen - [optional] an unknown value.

      The problem that I am having is when my Msgbox pops up it come up blank.
      I would like it to show Nonprocedure.  
      Why is my msgbox coming up blank?
      How do I grab NonProcedure code and display it  in msgbox. 
      Do $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE,"class") For $oInput in $oInputs If StringStripWS($oInput.innertext,1) = "medical__name" Then $otarget = $oInput $vTxt = $otarget.

      Hello all,
      Preface: Column A is full of courses. Column B is full of usernames. If course (A1) exists, we check to see if username (B1) is enrolled. If user is found, the user is un-enrolled. Then Loop.
      I am working on a script that loops through an Excel file and pastes the content from A1 into a textbox in IE, does some stuff, then pastes the content from B1 into a different textbox. Then it loops around until all used rows in columns A and B have been accounted for.
      For some reason, column A loops properly but column B doesn't. B1 is pasted over and over again. So, as it loops, B1 is constantly being pasted, first accompanying A1's loop, then A2, and so on.
      The OpenExcel() func opens the Excel file the user specifies in an earlier function. It's supposed to gather the entire used range of columns A and B. The SearchCourse() func only uses column A, pasting its content into a Search tool in IE. This seems to be working fine. SearchResult() puts "Course Not Found" into column C if the search fails. If the search is successful, however, we move onto... EnterCourse(). This simply gets us to the place where column B's content comes into play. UnenrollNow(). Here, we paste the variable $_userName into a textbox. I don't know why it's always B1  Func OpenExcel() If Not WinExists($hWnd) Then MsgBox(16, "Window closed", "The Internet Explorer window was closed. Please start over.") _Exit() Else $oExcel = _Excel_Open() Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $ChosenFileName, Default, True, True) $oExcel.Sheets("CopyCourses").Activate ;~ Get all used cells in columns A and B $aSearchItems = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, $oWorkbook.Sheets("CopyCourses").Usedrange.Columns("A:B")) ;~ Create the $aSearchResult array ReDim $aSearchResult[UBound($aSearchItems)] ;~ Loop through the array starting at 0 until the end of the array which is (Ubound($aSearchItems) - 1) For $i = 0 To UBound($aSearchItems) - 1 ;~ Column 0 ConsoleWrite($aSearchItems[$i][0] & @CRLF) ;~ Column 1 ConsoleWrite($aSearchItems[$i][1] & @CRLF) $aSearchResult[$i] = SearchCourse($aSearchItems[$i][0], $aSearchItems[$i][1]) Next _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, Default, $aSearchResult, "C1") ;~ When the loop is complete, run the Finished function.

      Strange thing. When I load a page in IE and inspect, the elements are clearly there but when I try to find them using _IEGetObjById or _IETagNameGetCollection or even using JS right in the IE console, the elements can't be found.
      Have you guys even encoutered something similar?
      Site's HTML
      <div id="lastdays"> <div class="radio"> <span class="radio"><input id="lastdays_radio" type="radio" name="rangepanel_group" value="lastdays_radio"></span> </div> <div class="content"> <label for="lastdays_radio">Za posledních</label> <label for="lastdays_radio"> </label> <input name="lastdays_days" type="text" value="1" maxlength="3" id="lastdays_days" class="text days" onclick="document.getElementById('lastdays_radio').checked=true;" onfocus="document.getElementById('lastdays_radio').checked=true;"> <label for="lastdays_radio"> </label> <select name="lastdays_period" id="lastdays_period" class="combo" onclick="document.getElementById('lastdays_radio').checked=true;" onfocus="document.getElementById('lastdays_radio').checked=true;"> <option value="D">dnů</option> <option value="W">týdnů</option> <option selected="selected" value="M">měsíců</option> </select> </div> </div> document.getElementById("lastdays_days"); //returns null in IE

      I need to find a way to get the HTML from a website that has HTTPS. This is what I have tried:
      - WinHttp (Only worked on HTTP NOT HTTPS)
      - InetGet and _INetGetSource Function (Not working for HTTPS)
      - IE.au3 (Does work but it's too slow for my needs)
      If anybody can point me on the right direction, I would really appreciate it.
