Click (ALL) Div Class However ID is Dynamic

9 posts in this topic

I could really use your all's help as I am having a real struggle trying to click on a div class after I have logged in successfully to a web site. Basically the site that I am logging into requires me to manually renew data by clicking on hundreds of links called "Mark as Updated."  The link does not include a button/name class however includes the following:

<div class="markcurrent" id="MarkAsCurrent_1246098" style="display: inline-block;">

<a href="javascript:MarkAsCurrent(1246098);" id="ctl00_MainContent__grid_ctl07__markAsCurrent"><i class="fa fa-check-square-o"></i>Mark as updated</a>                        

</div>

The numbers are dynamic however everything else with each link seems to stay the same. Once the link is clicked and updated the url is disabled. Currently I am able to successfully log into the web site with the following code listed below and would like to click on all of the "Mark As Updated" aka id ="MarkAsCurrent" links at the same time if possible.

 

 

#include <IE.au3>

Call ("signIn")

Func signIn ()
Global $oIE = _IECreate ("INSERT WEB SITE URL HERE")

Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "Username")
Local $password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "Password")
Local $button = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "LoginSubmit")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($username, "INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS HERE")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($password, "INSERT PASSWORD HERE")


_IEAction ($button,"click")

Sleep(8000)

???? CODE TO CLICK ON DIV CLASS=MARK CURRENT <OR> WEB URL LINK NAME "MARK AS UPDATED" ????

EndFunc

I think about something like this:

Func _Mark_Click(ByRef $oIE)
    Local $sHTML = _IEDocReadHTML($oIE)
    ; <div class="markcurrent" id="MarkAsCurrent_1246098" style="display: inline-block;">
    Local $aMark = StringRegExp($sHTML,'(?i)id="(MarkAsCurrent_\d+?)" style',3)
    If Not @error And UBound($aMark) Then
        Local $oMark = _IEGetObjById($oIE, $aMark[0])
        _IEAction($oMark,'click')
        Return SetError(0,0,1)
    Else
        Return SetError(1,0,0)
    EndIf
EndFunc

 

and you do not must call function using Call Function ;)

just do it like this:

signIn() ; HERE YOU CALL YOUR FUNCTION WITHOUT USING CALL

Func signIn()
    Global $oIE = _IECreate("INSERT WEB SITE URL HERE")
    ; ......
EndFunc   ;==>signIn

 

btw.

Thank you for the update and quick response. I was able to get the link to be clicked with both codes listed below.  However I am running into an issue where it will only click the first instance of the url name "Mark as updated" if the url name has already been clicked then it is disabled and grayed out. Is there a way to click all url names of "Mark as updated" at the same time? Or do I need to implement a pause any help would be greatly appreciated! I am super excited!!! 

 


$sMyString = "Mark as updated"
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink in $oLinks
    $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText")
    ConsoleWrite ( "-->-- $sLinkText : " & $sLinkText & @Crlf )
    If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then
        _IEAction($oLink, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

OR

 _IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Mark as updated")

Awesome it looks like everything is now working on the script. Last question when I setup windows 10 task schedule and click run on the au3 file it prompts me what program I would like to use. Any recommendations on how to get this to work?

I have been using the following code listed below to login to a web site then renew the ads.  

#include <IE.au3>

Call ("signIn")

Func signIn ()
Global $oIE = _IECreate ("INSERT URL")

Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "Username")
Local $password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "Password")
Local $button = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "LoginSubmit")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($username, "INSERT USERNAME")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($password, "INSERT PASSWORD")


_IEAction ($button,"click")
EndFunc

Sleep(8000)

$sMyString = "Mark as updated"
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink in $oLinks
    $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText")
    ConsoleWrite ( "-->-- $sLinkText : " & $sLinkText & @Crlf )
    If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then
        _IEAction($oLink, "click")
    EndIf
Next

Sleep(8000)

????????????????????????????

WHAT CODE DO I ADD HERE TO CLICK THE NEXT PAGE

????????????????????????????


RunWait('taskkill /F /IM "iexplore.exe"')

The problem that I am running into now is that only 50 ads are listed on a page and I now need to select the next page after all ads have been renewed on a current page. If you could please help me with the code needed to click the following button required to click the next button #2 that would be greatly appreciated.

<a href="#" class="CurrentPage current">2</a>

Are you able to give a link to the website? While still on the first page, right click the next page button and click inspect element. And post about 5 lines above and below the selected html.
