EXAMPLE: Proper usage ie.au3 UDF with AutoIt v3.3.14.x

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Lately, in this forum, there were many questions and problems referring to the use of ie.au3 UDF using the latest version of AutoIt v3.3.14.x.

I would like to present the correct usage of the UDF.
I hope that it will help many users to prevent problems.

 

#include <ie.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

; STEP 1
; YOU MUST SET ANY COM ERROR HANDLER IN ONE OF THE FOLLOWING WAY

; STEP 1: CASE 1
; you should set COM Error Handler Function for ie.au3 UDF
_IEErrorHandlerRegister(_User_ErrFunc)

; STEP 1: CASE 2
; eventually if you not want to recieve additional information
; you can use just the same function without parameter
; _IEErrorHandlerRegister()

; STEP 1: CASE 3
; or use your own global COM Error Handler
;~ Global $oCOMErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", _User_ErrFunc)

; STEP 2
; if you do not wish to get in Console Output Pane information like the following:
;           --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IEAction(click), $_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType
;   You can uncomment this following line:
;       _IEErrorNotify(False)


_Example()
Func _Example()

    ; First lets create some IE Object
    Local $oIE = _IECreate('google.com')
    ; you should always check for @error in any function (even you own made)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, '_IECreate', '@error = ' & @error & @CRLF & '@extended = ' & @extended)
        ; Set @error when you return from function with Failure
        Return SetError(1,0,0)
    Endif

    ; here we try to get reference to LuckyStrike button
    Local $oLuckyStrike = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, 'btnI')
    ; you should always check for @error in any function (even you own made)
    If @error Then
        MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, '_IEGetObjByName', '@error = ' & @error & @CRLF & '@extended = ' & @extended)
        ; Set @error when you return from function with Failure
        Return SetError(2,0,0)
    Endif

    ; here we try to click LuckyStrike button with previously achieved Object which is a reference to HTML DOM OBJECT in IE Instance
    _IEAction($oLuckyStrike, 'click')

    ; you should wait when page is loading
    _IELoadWait($oIE)

    ; some user interaction
    If MsgBox($MB_YESNO, 'Question', 'Do you want to back ?') = $IDYES Then
        _IEAction($oIE, 'back')
    EndIf

EndFunc   ;==>_Example



; User's COM error function.
; After SetUp with ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", ....) will be called if COM error occurs
Func _User_ErrFunc($oError)
    ; Do anything here.
    ConsoleWrite(@ScriptFullPath & " (" & $oError.scriptline & ") : ==> COM Error intercepted !" & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.number is: " & @TAB & @TAB & "0x" & Hex($oError.number) & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.windescription:" & @TAB & $oError.windescription & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.description is: " & @TAB & $oError.description & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.source is: " & @TAB & @TAB & $oError.source & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.helpfile is: " & @TAB & $oError.helpfile & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.helpcontext is: " & @TAB & $oError.helpcontext & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.lastdllerror is: " & @TAB & $oError.lastdllerror & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.scriptline is: " & @TAB & $oError.scriptline & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.retcode is: " & @TAB & "0x" & Hex($oError.retcode) & @CRLF & @CRLF)
EndFunc   ;==>_User_ErrFunc

Second interesting example, showing how to wait for full page load (with all frames):

#include <ie.au3>

            If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, -1)
        EndIf
    Next

    Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, 1)

EndFunc   ;==>_IELoadWait_ForAllFrames

Func _User_ErrFunc($oError)
    ; Do anything here.

For example:

_IETagNameGetCollection(....)

 

Return Value

Success: an object variable containing the specified Tag collection, @extended = specified Tag count.
Failure: sets the @error flag to non-zero.
@error: 3 ($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) - Invalid Data Type
4 ($_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType) - Invalid Object Type
5 ($_IEStatus_InvalidValue) - Invalid Value
7 ($_IEStatus_NoMatch) - No Match
@extended: Contains invalid parameter number

      I am not sure on how to grab the innertext I want. Is there a way I can just grab the second line, or is there a better way to do it all together?

      I have come across a weird issue that I am not sure how to solve. For some reason, whenever I call WinActivate in certain scenarios instead of opening the single window that already exists, it will create a new blank tab. It should be able to be recreated with this:
      AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) Sleep(1000) For $i=0 To 10 WinActivate("Internet Explorer") Next I am not actually doing this in my code, it is just to demonstrate the fact that new tabs keep popping up. Does anyone know why this happens?
       
      EDIT: So I am not sure how reproducible this is, because it only happens every once in a while for me. I will update with more info if I find out anything.

      Just need to click the specific instance of an .open-menu button and then click its a.run (anchor) element.
      Doing this IE.au3 script just causing to click its container element:
      $target = 1; Target the first instance #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach("Dashboard - Zapier") $count = 0; $tags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If $class_value = "open-menu" Then $count += 1 if $count = $target Then MsgBox(0, "Instance: ", $count) ; $tag.fireEvent("onmousedown") ; _IEAction($tag, "click") ; $tag.fireEvent("onmouseup") ; Or this but not working ; $tag.Click EndIf EndIf Next I also tried to do it using FF.au3
      $target = 1; Target the first instance #Include <Array.au3> #Include <FF.au3> $count = 0; If _FFConnect(Default, Default, 3000) Then $aArray = _FFXPath( "//div[@class='open-menu']", "", 7 ) ; _ArrayDisplay($aArray) For $tag in $aArray $count += 1 if $count = $target Then MsgBox(0, "Instance: ", $count) _FFClick($tag) EndIf Next EndIf Error: _FFClick ==> No match: $sElement: [number]
      Could some help me how to click such buttons on such kind of a dynamic page?
