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):

    Next

    Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, 1)

EndFunc   ;==>_IELoadWait_ForAllFrames

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

      Hi all,
       
      Anyone have any idea how to close all open tabs except a specific one I manually open.  Assuming I don't know what is open in all the tabs except just the one I want to keep open.
       
      I didn't want to use sendkeys and I was trying to use the following code to list the title (or url) of the 3 open tabs and  after I got that part working I would just close the other 2. This sample only displays the title of the first open tab
      #include <IE.au3> Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800 $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com") __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) Local $aIE[1] $aIE[0] = 0 Local $i = 1, $oIE While 1     $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", $i)     If @error = $_IEStatus_NoMatch Then ExitLoop     ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "title") & @CRLF)     ReDim $aIE[$i + 1]     $aIE[$i] = $oIE ;each item holds object     $aIE[0] = $i ;first item holds count     $i += 1 WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE[0]) ; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab  
      Thanks for any and all help

      Hey,
      i would like to set a value into an INPUT field.
      Checked the _IEFormElementSetValue function but that does require _IEFormGetObjByName and this is where the problem comes in. The input field I want to write to is not a part of a form tag. It is part of a table.
      <input type="text" class="w2" id="nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od" name="nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od" onchange="GLOBAL.pocetInzerceNZ(&quot;nabidka_vozidel_formular&quot;,&quot;tach_od&quot;,&quot;&quot;);" autocomplete="off"> I tried this but that didn't work:
      $oDownloadSamples = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od") _IEFormElementSetValue($oDownloadSamples, "123") If you want to try the site I'm working with is https://www.tipcars.cz/. There is a menu on the top left hand side and if you click the "vyhledat" button the input fields will show up.
      Thanks

      I am now able to populate the dropdown menus at https://www.tipcars.com/.
      The dropdowns are dynamic and do not have a Text value, only ids.
      Is there a way to get all the available options from a dropdown?
      $url = "https://www.tipcars.com/" $oIE = _IECreate($url) _IELoadWait($oIE) $oDownloadSamples = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo") _IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDownloadSamples, "C") Above code, populates ID 'C' into the 'druh' dropdown, which results in selecting 'užitkové'. 
      Is there a way so I can grab all of the options from the dropdown menu? I could easily grab all the IDs but I am afraid they will change in the future so I would much rather match the text titles and assign the option IDs grabbed from site.
      This is what the options are according to Chrome:
      <select class="w1"id="homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo"name="homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo"onchange="try{NABIDKA_VOZIDEL_FORMULAR.naplnSelectZnacka('homepage_vyhl_frm');GLOBAL.pocetInzerceHZ('homepage_vyhl_frm','vozidlo');}catch(ex){odeslatJsChybu('formHOMEPAGE onChange 1: ' + ex.message, 'formHomePage onChange 1', -1);}"> <option value="A" style="color: black;">osobní a terénní (56 334)</option> <option value="C" style="color: black;">užitkové (4 333)</option> <option value="D" style="color: black;">nákladní (3 742)</option> <option value="E" style="color: black;">autobusy (56)</option> <option value="F" style="color: black;">obytné (373)</option> <option value="G" style="color: black;">přívěsy (1 179)</option> <option value="J" style="color: black;">motorky (780)</option> <option value="S" style="color: black;">pracovní stroje (605)</option> <option value="L" style="color: black;">ostatní (235)</option></select> Also, this cannot be grabbed by _INetGetSource.
      Thanks
