IE: Trigger event on _IEFormElementOptionSelect to display hidden div.

3 posts in this topic

Hello, and thank you for your input. I've been searching around to try to find out how to trigger a change when selecting an option from a dropdown using _IEFormElementOptionSelect, but haven't found anything in the forums or via google.

Here is my sample code:

;Select the lead type
$LeadType = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "data[leads_types]")
$LeadType.focus
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($LeadType, "Expired", 1, "byText")

This works to select the value, but it doesn't trigger a date range div that is set with display:none. When done manually there is an event trigger where jquery changes the display setting.

The HTML for the dropdown:

<select name="data[leads_types]" class="selectbox leadselectbox" style="width:140px;" id="lead_options">
<option value="">Lead Type</option>
<optgroup label="Leads">
<option value="1">Divorce</option>
<option value="27">Empty Nesters</option>
<option value="24">Estate Sales</option>
<option value="18">Evictions</option>
<option value="2">Expired</option>
</optgroup>
<optgroup label="CRM">
<option value="11">Cold Lead</option>
<option value="20">Dead</option>
<option value="13">Follow Up Lead</option>
<option value="12">Hot Lead</option>
</optgroup>
</select>

The Html for the div that gets displayed:

<div id="date_selection" style="display: none;float: left;margin-left: 5px; width:390px; ">
      <div style="float: left;font-size:15px">       
        From: <input class="inputTxt3 dtpicker hasDatepicker" style="width:80px;" size="25" name="offer_from_date" id="offer_from_date" value="08/26/2015" type="text"> 
        To: <input class="inputTxt3 dtpicker hasDatepicker" style="width:80px;" size="25" name="offer_to_date" id="offer_to_date" value="09/10/2015" type="text">
     </div>   
     <div style="display: block; float: left;margin-left: 5px;font-size:13px" id="searchTypeDiv">
        <span title="Search for Recorded or Filed Dates">Record Date</span> <input type="radio" name="searchDateType" value="r">
        <br>
        <span title="Search for the date RG found the record">Insert Date&nbsp;&nbsp;</span> <input type="radio" name="searchDateType" value="i" checked="">
    </div>
</div>

I've tried changing the values when it isn't displayed, but that doesn't work. I need to find out how to trigger that event. Can someone point me in the right direction?


Thanks.

Can you just use send and send the correct amount of tabs or down arrows to get to the desired end result?


Get Scite to add a popup when you use a 3rd party UDF -> http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/docs/SciTE4AutoIt3/user-calltip-manager.html

There's likely some Javascript code that you will need to execute in order for the div block to become visible. Can you provide the link to the website? If not, then you will need to examine the web page's underlying code to try to find the exact Javascript function to call.

      Hi, I'm trying to find a text value inside of a html.
      This is what the line looks like normally:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">TEXT HERE</span> </p> The text then changes to a non breaking space:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">&nbsp;</span> </p> And then it changes back to normal text but it's different every time.
      Can I code this so that it grabs the text every time it changes and has a variable that represents it?
      I currently have this inside of my loop:
      $span = .document.getElementsByTagName("span") For $text In $span If $text.value = "&nbsp;" Then Sleep(50) MsgBox(0,0,0) ;messagebox to test if it can be found, but I don't know how to grab the text EndIf Next The problem is that there are many other lines in the html that have the same span but are called "line3", "line5", etc and the one I need is from "line1".
      I will appreciate if anyone can help with this!

      I have kept below line to wait for IE to load the site completely and continue.
      _IELoadWait($oIE)
       
      But, the code is continuing without waiting for it and I my execution is failing as the elements are not loaded completely.

       
      Any suggestions for alternate code to wait for the browser to load completely?

      We can select elements in IE using their IDs as below.
      Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "x-auto-16-input") But to one button in the webpage, there is no ID to it.
      In selenium we have option to select this element using the CssSelector and clicked the button using below code in c# selenium.
      driver.FindElement(By.CssSelector("button.x-btn-text")).Click(); What is the alternative for this in AUtoIT?
