Execute JavaScript Event using FF.AU3

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to simulate a click on a button using FireFox (FF.AU3), but no success in these last few days :(

This is the source code of the page:

<a href="#" class="btn btn-sm btn-green" id='superbutton' onclick="kickme(event,'ids11')" > <span class="icon"><i class="super-icon"></i></span> <span id='superbutton'>&nbsp; ClickMe</span> </a>

Tried with no success:

_FFClick("superbutton", "id")
_FFClick("btn btn-sm btn-green", "class", 0)

That "0" index also already replaced by other numbers (in order to do a try and error approach).

The _FFLinkClick result below looks promising:

_FFLinkClick("ClickMe", "text")

__FFSend: FFau3.xpath=null;try{FFau3.xpath=FFau3.WCD.evaluate("//a[contains(.,'ClickMe')]",FFau3.WCD,null,XPathResult.FIRST_ORDERED_NODE_TYPE,null).singleNodeValue;}catch(e){'_FFXPath_Error: '+e;};
__FFRecv: http://thisistheweb.com/thepage# - {toString: function() {...}, target: "", download: "", ping: "", rel: "", relList: {...}, hreflang: "", ...}
__FFSend: try{FFau3.simulateEvent(FFau3.xpath,'MouseEvents','click');}catch(e){'_FFCmd_Err';};
__FFRecv: 1

Seems it found the button and click it, but in fact: it doesn't. Or maybe it did click it, but the result is totally different with if I click the button manually.


I'm thinking if I cant simulate a click on the button, I should execute the JavaScript onclick event.

But... how?

Thanks a lot :)

Have you tried this?

_FFXPath( "//input[@id='superbutton']")


Thanks a lot, Danp2 :)

I guess that will work, but finally I got it work perfectly using this code before tried _FFCmd above:

$oInput = _FFXPath('//*[@id="superbutton"]')
_FFDispatchEvent($oInput, 'keypress', 13)

Hope it help everyone who face a similiar problem.

Thanks, again!

      Making the integration between AutoIt and the BrowserControl easier may facilitate the development of interesting programs. Just think of all those (fantastic) libraries and frameworks available for javascript that could be integrated and exploited in an AutoIt program. For example, to graphically present the results of an AutoIt processing in the GUI, ... and many other possibilities. Providing the basic functions to implement this synergistic interaction is the purpose of this post (if for no other reason, just even to collect some tests done over time here and there, so as not to leave them scattered and easily find them in just one place)
      In this UDF there are only a few functions (or better if called wrappers), but I hope to add more as I go and, even better, to receive suggestions and advice on new features and techniques to improve and expand it.
      _WebBrowser_GUICtrlCreate Create an Internet Explorer 'Browser Control' _WebBrowser_SetHTML Set a new HTML listing in the BrowserControl _WebBrowser_CSS_Inject Creates into the html document a CSS node element with embedded the passed CSS _WebBrowser_JS_Inject Creates into the html document a javascript node element with embedded the passed javascript _WebBrowser_JS_Eval Evaluates a passed string as JavaScript code and executes it _WebBrowser_JS_setTimeout Calls a javascript function or executes a javascript code snippet [option after a specified delay] _WebBrowser_JS_ElementGetRef Retrieves a reference to an element suitable to be used from AutoIt _WebBrowser_ExecuteDotNotation Get a reference to an object's child member or the value of a property, by means of a dotted path _WebBrowser_BasicHTML Returns a basic html page listing (a little enhanced than about:blank) The three examples provided in the attached ziped file are a bit 'improvised' and do not take advantage of all the possibilities offered by the underlying javascript libraries used. They are just three "hello world" scripts to test the ABC of the interaction with the "BrowserControl".
      (ToDo: Interaction with javascript custom events)
      Bug reports, creative criticisms and suggestions (particularly regarding the interaction with javascript custom events) are welcome
      I hope you can have fun with the Browser Control

      This is a little experiment that makes use of a "Browser Control" embedded in a GUI in order to be able to use AutoIt, HTML, JavaScript and CSS all together.
      This little toy will only work on systems with IE11.
      The purpose is to drag all the names of the scientists & drop on the right ones. (among scientists it has also infiltrated an intruder). I hope you find it entertaining.
      I've posted it here in the hope to have some suggestions on how to improve it all (I mean the interaction between Autoit Javascript html and css). Thanks

      I'm working on an interface and I have a problem with zoom management. In desktop mode it works and in android cell mode it seems to work fine too. However, on a Windows tablet, it seems to have a problem ... Basically what I'm trying to do is display a modal in bootstrap 4. But when on the tablet I zoom, my modal s really big and out of my screen. On the android mobile, I remove the zoom before displaying the modal but on the Windows tablet I am unable to reproduce the same behavior.
      My toggle function to reset zoom before display modal  ( Yeah it maybe sketches but I'm not find other solutions)
      function resetZooming() { if (zoomOut) { $('meta[name=viewport]').attr('content', 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1'); setTimeout(resetZooming, 1000); zoomOut = false; }else{ $('meta[name=viewport]').attr('content', 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0'); zoomOut = true; } } And I call this function under my event
      $("#modalCreationForm").modal("show"); resetZooming();  
      If you have any ideas
      Thank you

      Hi everyone.
      I want to ask about this : 
      I want it runs from 1 to 100 and It opens 10 firefox profiles then access youtube. After I close a firefox window, the loop runs and wait for another window close until loop ends
      I have a loop like this.
      Func launch() Local $from = Int(GUICtrlRead($input1)) Local $to = Int(GUICtrlRead($input2)) If $to <> "" Then While $from <= $to Local $profile = $to _RunDos("start firefox.exe -p " & $profile & " -no-remote youtube.com") $to=$to+1 WEnd Else Local $profile = $to _RunDos("start firefox.exe -p " & $profile & " -no-remote youtube.com") EndIf EndFunc Is there any solution?
      Thank you!

      my FF.au3 does get included but my script does not open firefox. 
      here is my code so far:
      #include <FF.au3> _FFStart("https://www.google.com", Default, 0) I am using firefox portable version 52.0 Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  
      The code runs but nothing happens. I think the FF.au3 cannot find or connect to the firefox portable.
