_IE Action not working

Recommended Posts

onlineth

Hello, I believe I have come across a bug in the _IE library. I am trying to make a script that will automatically fill's in data for a restore script for a WP site. It's called Importbuddy by IThemes and it is one of the best, if not the best, backup restore plugins for WordPress. The problem that I am having is once it is on the first step of the script, filling in the password and clicking next, it redirects me to the index.php file and when I keep trying to return to the importbuddy.php file, it keeps redirecting back to the index file. Here is the code I am using, 

_$o = _IECreate() 
_IENavigate($o, [url of ImportBuddy]) 
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)
$step0 = _IEGetObjByName($o, "password");Password feild
_IEFormElementSetValue($step0, "pass");Password of Importbuddy
$Step0submit = _IEGetObjByName($o, "submit") 
_IEAction($Step0submit, "click") 
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)
;Goes to index.html, not the next step of the importbuddy

Here is a link to the importbuddy.php file,   http://bit.ly/1H9YZNb

Please only use this file for testing, it is part of a commercial product by IThemes 

To keep this simple, just install a program like XAMPP to view the file. Also, the password is "pass"

Does anyone have any ideas why this isn't working? 

As always, Thanks for your help 

Thomas

ok, I think I am going to take a different route on this. First I tried using the _IEFormSubmit but I keep getting an error of "2 ($_IEStatus_COMError) - COM Error in Object reference"

$o = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($o, "http://test.onlineth.x10host.com/importbuddy.php")
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)
$step0 = _IEGetObjByName($o, "password")
$form = _IEFormGetCollection($o, 0)
_IEFormElementSetValue($step0, "pass")
_IEFormSubmit($form)

So then I tried using the IE extended library but I can't get that to work either. Here is what I have for that,

$o = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($o, "http://test.onlineth.x10host.com/importbuddy.php")
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)
$step0 = _IEGetObjByName($o, "password")
$form = _IEFormGetCollection($o, 0)
_IEFormElementSetValue($step0, "pass")
$step0name = _IEGetObjByName($o, "submit")
_IEEx_JSMouseEventObjByName($o, $step0name, "mouseclick")
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)
I keep getting a "7 = No Match" error for that. I am running IE11

Also, the password for the http://test.onlineth.x10host.com/importbuddy.php is not "pass" but an extremely long string so no one will be albe to install anything malicious, it's just there so you can click on the button. If you click on it you should see this message, "Invalid password. Please enter the password you provided within BackupBuddy Settings. Attempt #."

Again, thanks for your help :)

Appears to work if you drop _IEFormSubmit and use _IEAction instead:

;_IEFormSubmit($form)
$btnSubmit = _IEGetObjByName($o, "submit")
_IEAction($btnSubmit, 'click')

Yes, but the issue is when I use _IEAction and "click", it redirects me to the index.html page (when I use the correct password) and when I try to navigate back to the /importbuddy.php it keeps redirecting back to the index.html file. If you can, put  the importbuddy.php file,  http://bit.ly/1H9YZNb, on a server and when you use the correct password(pass), you will see what I'm talking about.

Sounds like a configuration issue.  What happens if you manually click the button? 

It goes to the next step without any problems

EDIT

That's why I was exploring the other ways to see if that would work

Not in my testing. Even if I manually enter the password, it initially displays the index. If I then go back and refresh the php page, it goes to the desired web page.

Hmm, again, I am using this script,

$o = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($o, "http://test.onlineth.x10host.com/importbuddy.php")
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)
$step0 = _IEGetObjByName($o, "password")
$form = _IEFormGetCollection($o, 0)
_IEFormElementSetValue($step0, "pass")
$step0name = _IEGetObjByName($o, "submit")
;_IEEx_JSMouseEventObjByName($o, $step0name, "mouseclick")
$btnSubmit = _IEGetObjByName($o, "submit")
_IEAction($btnSubmit, 'click')
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)
_IENavigate($o, "http://test.onlineth.x10host.com/importbuddy.php")

However when I use the _IENavigate it does nothing. Also, I added _IEQuit which also does nothing. What version of IE are you running? I'm only asking this because I've been reading about alternatives and it seems that the update from IE10 to 11 seems to have caused much conflict (I'm running IE11). Also, do you know why the other scripts I made don't work?

Thanks for help on this:)

Does anyone know why the other scripts I have created don't work?

$o = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($o, "http://test.onlineth.x10host.com/importbuddy.php")
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)
$step0 = _IEGetObjByName($o, "password")
$form = _IEFormGetCollection($o, 0)
_IEFormElementSetValue($step0, "pass")
_IEFormSubmit($form) 
$o = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($o, "http://test.onlineth.x10host.com/importbuddy.php")
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)
$step0 = _IEGetObjByName($o, "password")
$form = _IEFormGetCollection($o, 0)
_IEFormElementSetValue($step0, "pass")
$step0name = _IEGetObjByName($o, "submit")
_IEEx_JSMouseEventObjByName($o, $step0name, "mouseclick")
_IELoadWait($o, 2000)

      Hello,
      I try to get all the text from a news site around a subject.
      The first run I get all the text inside a attribute in an array.
      When i try to go back and reload another page it chrashes and think it because "$oIE.GoBack"
      I couldn't find anything in the help/forum around this subject.
      Do I need to reload the $oIE or something afther an X.GoBack?
      The error i got is :
      if $oTag2.GetAttribute("class") == "NewsDetail" Then if $oTag2^ ERROR I'm not shure why I got this error, maybe someone could explain?
      Also I'm open for some pointers in this test script because I'm pretty new in working whit the IE.UDF
      Maybe there is an simpler way to get the same results?

      test script:
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate") Global $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.iex.nl/Zoeken/Nieuws.aspx?q=air%20france") ;get first subject Global $oLink1 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "ctl00_ctl00_Content_LeftContent_NewsSearch_repNews_ctl00_linkNews") Sleep(500) _IEAction($oLink1, "click") Sleep(500) Global $oTags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") Global $aResults[1] For $oTag In $oTags if $oTag.GetAttribute("class") == "NewsDetail" Then _ArrayAdd($aResults, $oTag.innerTEXT) EndIf Next $aResults[0] = UBound($aResults) - 1 _ArrayDisplay($aResults, "Episodelist") ConsoleWrite($aResults[1] & @CRLF) $oIE.GoBack ;get second subject Global $oLink2 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "ctl00_ctl00_Content_LeftContent_NewsSearch_repNews_ctl01_linkNews") Sleep(500) _IEAction($oLink2, "click") Sleep(500) Local $oTags2 = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") Local $aResults2[1] For $oTag2 In $oTags2 if $oTag2.GetAttribute("class") == "NewsDetail" Then _ArrayAdd($aResults2, $oTag2.innerTEXT) EndIf Next $aResults2[0] = UBound($aResults2) - 1 ConsoleWrite($aResults2[1] & @CRLF) Func Terminate() _IEQuit($oIE) Exit EndFunc ;==>Terminate

      I am having a hard time understanding why this is not working. I was hoping some one could help explain it to me. 
      $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName("input") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If string($class_value) = "fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl" Then $target = $tag ExitLoop EndIF Next MsgBox(0,"",$target) If $target = "fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl" THEN MsgBox(0,"","itworked") I have tried 
       MsgBox(0,"",$target.Attribute)  MsgBox(0,"",$target.Value)  MsgBox(0,"",$target.InnerText) I would expect to see this in the msgbox
      fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl

      I am trying to grab the id "in2xk_26" however it the characters before the underscore always change. (in the name too)
      Is there a way I can find a id or name by the last 3 charcters?
      Using something like "stringright?"
      So I would want to search for just "_26" in this case.
      This is assuming that there are no other _26
       

      #include <Excel.au3> #include <IE.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> Global $iMousespeed = 25,$target = "",$TagName = "",$Value = "",$Atrribute = "" $oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH") $TagName = "input" $Value = "in2xk_26" $Attribute = "id" $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName($TagName) ;TagName ------ MAKE SURE TO NAME THESE For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute($Attribute) ;Attribute ------ MAKE SURE TO NAME THESE If string($class_value) = $Value Then ;Value ------ MAKE SURE TO NAME THESE $target = $tag $iScreenX = _IEPropertyGet($target, "screenx") $iScreenY = _IEPropertyGet($target, "screeny") $iWidth = _IEPropertyGet($target, "width") $iHeight = _IEPropertyGet($target, "height") $oMouseCords = MouseMove($iScreenX + $iWidth / 2, $iScreenY + $iHeight / 2, $iMousespeed) MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT) ExitLoop EndIf Next

      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

      WinActivate("MEDITECH - Internet Explorer") Sleep (500) $oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH") $oDiv1 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "sysmenu-searchbarbutton") _IEAction($oDiv1, "click") I am just trying to click the little magnifying glass, next to the gear button with no luck. I was hoping someone might have an idea why this is not working?
