_IE functions

Recommended Posts

Abiarch

Hi,

I am trying to use the _IE functions.

I am able to use the _IECreate function which will load the html page which we have generated. 

But when I am trying to use_IEGetObjByName function the return value shows 0 which is an error.

Same with the result of _IEFormGetObjByName function. My script is only opening the html page. It is not performing any other  functions.

Also to mention I am including #include <IE.au3> header.

Could someone please help me with this?

 

Thanks.

Abiarch,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum.

But please pay attention to where you post - the "Dev Chat" section where you started this thread is not for general support questions.  I have moved it for you, but would ask you to be more careful in future.

Below is the code snippet I am talking about. I am new to autoIT. 

#include <IE.au3>
Local $Link = "D:\path\Example.html"
Local $oIE = _IECreate($Link)
Sleep(2000)
Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "test123") 
Sleep(2000)
Local $oSubmit = _IEGetObjByName($oForm, "submitExample")
_IEAction($oSubmit, "click")
_IELoadWait($oIE)

 

I tried printing the return value for _IEFormGetObjByName and _IEGetObjByName. It prints 0.

 Hi,

Thanks Danp2 for your response. 

I tried getting value of @error. The value is 0. Which probably means no error.

Is anything missing in the code snippet I have posted below? I cant see any other operation while running the script other than opening of the html page.

Below is the code snippet I am talking about. I am new to autoIT. 

#include <IE.au3>
Local $Link = "D:\path\Example.html"
Local $oIE = _IECreate($Link)
Sleep(2000)
Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "test123") 
Sleep(2000)
Local $oSubmit = _IEGetObjByName($oForm, "submitExample")
_IEAction($oSubmit, "click")
_IELoadWait($oIE)

 

I tried printing the return value for _IEFormGetObjByName and _IEGetObjByName. It prints 0.

Below is the html script. 

<html>

<body>

<form name="test123" onSubmit="javascript:alert('ExampleFormSubmitted');" method="post">

<input name="submitExample" type="submit" value="Submit">

</form>
</body>
</html>

I saved your html file and your script and tried it.  Since the HTML file is running locally, it was asking me to "Allow Blocked Content", which is what I think is throwing your script off.  I modified the script to the below and it works.  See if it works for you...

 

#include <IE.au3>
Local $Link = "D:\path\Example.html"
Local $oIE = _IECreate($Link)
_IELoadWait($oIE)
Sleep(5000)
Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "test123")
Sleep(2000)
Local $oSubmit = _IEGetObjByName($oForm, "submitExample")
_IEAction($oSubmit, "click")
_IELoadWait($oIE)

Hi,

I tried the same.

But it just gives me the attach html page. I have attached the screen shot. No action is performed after that. The mouse click isnt performed on submit button. 

And also I have disabled "allow blocked content" by going to IE settings. So I am not finding that tab anymore.

Can you show what errors you are getting from the ScITE window?  Have you tried turning on IIS and running this as a real webpage?  Or making sure you set that drive path up as a trusted zone in IE? Maybe try disabling virus scan for a few minutes??

This is what I get when I run your script:

Good to know that its working for you as expected :) 

I am not getting any error in ScITE window. I tried adding my local html page to trusted site but it won't allow me as it is not an https page.

The issue is 

_IEFormGetObjByName is not able to return the form value.

Hence the error is 0.

Could you please share with me your IE settings? I mean anything specific which would be disabled or not added here by me may be.

I am running IE8 (a job requirement) with the following settings (see below).  If you are running a later version of IE, have you turned off Protected Mode?

Hi,

I am using the IE version 11. I cant find any option to turn protected mode off in security settings.

I have attached the screen shot for you.

 

Thanks
