promise for ObjEvent(_IEGetObjById($oIE, "future_btn") in _IE?

2 posts in this topic

I have e.g.

Local $oIEEvents = ObjEvent(_IEGetObjById($oIE, "mylink"), "_MyLink_", "HTMLAnchorEvents2")

working perfectly, but

Local $oIEEvents = ObjEvent(_IEGetObjById($oIE, "future_btn"), "_Futurebtn_", "HTMLButtonElementEvents ")

does not as ExtJS has not dynamically created the html yet. Is there anything in the IE API that would allow a callback to $oIE once the html is available?

You are using ObjEvent in a very strange way.

Try this:

Local $oIE = ......
Local $oIEEvents = ObjEvent($oIE, "_MyLink_", "HTMLAnchorEvents2")
_IEGetObjById($oIE, "mylink")


Local $oIEEvents = ObjEvent(_IEGetObjById($oIE, "future_btn"), "_Futurebtn_", "HTMLButtonElementEvents ")

you have a one unnecessary space after "HTMLButtonElementEvents "

      i'm trying to use this UDF _IEquerySelectorAll() to check if i clicked a button in a web page.
      here is the index.html:
      and this is my autoit script including the _IEquerySelectorAll() function (modified by mLipok) :

      well, so i'm supposed to see a msgbox when i click the button, but nothing happens...
      Can someone help me please ? something should be wrong here:
      $oDoc = _IEDocGetObj($oIE) $oButton = _IEquerySelectorAll($oDoc,'button', 0) ObjEvent($oButton, "_Evt_") Func _Evt_onClick() msgbox(0,"","button clicked") EndFunc

      Hello and happy new Year to everybody!
      I'm trying to catch some events occuring within a browser control by simply using the ObjEvent() function.
      I think I'm not using that function in a proper way since some events are captured, while other are not.
      more precisely, events like those listed in this page are working:
      while other events listed in other "interfaces", as in the following links, does not works.
      For exemple, Here I would like to catch events like "DragOver" and/or "Drop" fired while dragging the image on the web control, but I'm not been able to obtain a result.
      Those events are listed in the HTMLDocumentEvents4 interface or also in the HTMLImgEvents interface, but I failed to use them.
      Any hint that can help to see what I'm doing wrong, or even better that can show how to achieve the result by using the ObjEvent() function (if it's possible?) is welcome.
      Thanks a lot.
      Here is the simple script that I'm using for my tests:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <string.au3> ; read html page from bottom of this script ; and write it to a file on disk for later ; usage by the $oIE.navigate CreateHtmlPage() Example() Exit Func Example() Local $hGUIMain = GUICreate("Event Test", 540, 400) ; We generate the Browser Control...
