IE Loop though list of user names

Recommended Posts

ekim415

I have made a script that works to export data from a stubborn email archive, the code is below.  We have hundreds of email addresses that this must be run on and in the script there is the word $VARIABLE three times.  I need assistance in figuring out how to loop this script and make it run though a list of user names placed in the three locations in the code below. 

Any ideas/direction is greatly appreciated. 

 

#include <IE.au3>


Call ("signin")

Func signin ()

Global $oIE = _IECreate("\\archive")

; win state sets window to maximum.
WinSetState("Search Archive - Internet Explorer", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Local $username = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "user_username")
Local $password = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "user_password")
Local $loginbutton = _IEGetObjById ($oIE,"user_submit")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($username, "UserName")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($password, "Password")

_IEAction ($loginbutton, "click")

EndFunc


_IELoadWait ($oie)


Call ("search")

Func search ()


Local $subject = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "search_name")
Local $sender = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "search_sender")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($subject, "Outbound $VARIABLE Jan1-March31 2015")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($sender, "$VARIABLE@email.com")

EndFunc


Send ("{PGDN}" & "{PGDN}" & "{PGDN}" & "{PGDN}")
Sleep (2000)
;Selects date on Calendar
MouseClick("left", 671,450)



Local $searchbutton = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"save_results")

_IEAction ($searchbutton, "click")


Sleep(2000)

Global $exportnote = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "export_note")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($exportnote, "Outbound $VARIABLE Jan1-March31 2015")

What's about: opening the Help and learning the basics, specialy about variables, arrays, reading(/writing) from(/in files), Loops (while...wend, Do...until) and  concatenating strings?

I can't find a variable named $VARIABLE in your script only the word $VARIABLE as text.

You are correct, there is no variable.  I was simply trying to explain what I am working to achieve in a clear manner.

Start from code CleanUp.

#include <IE.au3>

Global $oIE = _IECreate("\\archive")
_Example()

Func _Example()
    signin()
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    search()

    Send("{PGDN}" & "{PGDN}" & "{PGDN}" & "{PGDN}")
    Sleep(2000)
    ;Selects date on Calendar
    MouseClick("left", 671, 450)

    Local $searchbutton = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "save_results")
    _IEAction($searchbutton, "click")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)

    Local $exportnote = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "export_note")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($exportnote, "Outbound $VARIABLE Jan1-March31 2015")
EndFunc   ;==>_Example

Func signin()
    ; win state sets window to maximum.
    WinSetState("Search Archive - Internet Explorer", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

    Local $username = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "user_username")
    Local $password = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "user_password")
    Local $loginbutton = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "user_submit")

    _IEFormElementSetValue($username, "UserName")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($password, "Password")
    _IEAction($loginbutton, "click")
EndFunc   ;==>signin

Func search()
    Local $subject = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "search_name")
    Local $sender = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "search_sender")

    _IEFormElementSetValue($subject, "Outbound $VARIABLE Jan1-March31 2015")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($sender, "$VARIABLE@email.com")
EndFunc   ;==>search



Now you should see what can be done.

 

btw.

You do not need to use Call(.....)

I don't like that code but I am unable to fill out the form unless I open the pop out calendar and click the date.  So what this is doing is moving to the bottom of the page and selecting the date on a the calendar.

Here is the code from inspect element in case you see a different way to input:

 

<div class="field clear">
      <label class="_" for="search_begin_string">Begins on</label>
      <input name="search[begin_string]" class="custom_date_range calendar hasDatepicker" id="search_begin_string" type="text" size="30" readonly="readonly"><img title="..." class="ui-datepicker-trigger" alt="..." src="/images/calendar.gif">
    </div>

Try this:

Local $oButton = _IEGetObjByID($oIE, 'search_begin_string')
_IEAction($oButton, 'click')

I have watched several videos and read though some examples and I have learned that this can be solved with an array.  I understand how to make an array and in my example below I have been able to make it function as a msgbox and consolewrite but I am unable to figure out how to get this into the three places I need it to go below currently defined as $a .   Could someone point me to an example or function on how to implement this properly

 

Global $Array[10]

$Array[0] = "user1"
$Array[1] = "user2"
$Array[2] = "user3"
$Array[3] = "user4"
$Array[4] = "user5"
$Array[5] = "user6"
$Array[6] = "user7"
$Array[7] = "user8"
$Array[8] = "user9"
$Array[9] = "user10"

For $a in $Array
    MsgBox(0,"output", $a)
Next
#include <IE.au3>

Global $oIE = _IECreate("\\archive")
_main()

Func _main()
    signin()
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    search()

    Local $oButton = _IEGetObjByID($oIE, 'search_begin_string')
    _IEAction($oButton, 'click')

    Local $searchbutton = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "save_results")
    _IEAction($searchbutton, "click")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)

    Local $exportnote = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "export_note")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($exportnote, "Outbound" & $a & "Jan1-March31 2015")
EndFunc   ;==>_Example

Func signin()
    ; win state sets window to maximum.
    WinSetState("Search Archive - Internet Explorer", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

    Local $username = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "user_username")
    Local $password = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "user_password")
    Local $loginbutton = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "user_submit")

    _IEFormElementSetValue($username, "UserName")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($password, "Password")
    _IEAction($loginbutton, "click")
EndFunc   ;==>signin

Func search()
    Local $subject = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "search_name")
    Local $sender = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "search_sender")

    _IEFormElementSetValue($subject, "Outbound" & $a & "Jan1-March31 2015")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($sender, $a & "@email.com")
EndFunc   ;==>search

The Array is working as standalone code by when implemented below with the For loop all $Array variables come across and blank.  What am I missing?

 

#include <IE.au3>

Global $Array[3]

$Array[0] = "user1"
$Array[1] = "user2"
$Array[2] = "user3"

Global $oIE = _IECreate("\\archive")
_main()

Func _main()
    For $Array = 0 to 2
    signin()
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    search()

    Local $oButton = _IEGetObjByID($oIE, 'search_begin_string')
    _IEAction($oButton, 'click')

    Local $searchbutton = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "save_results")
    _IEAction($searchbutton, "click")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)

    Local $exportnote = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "export_note")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($exportnote, "Outbound" & $Array & "Jan1-March31 2015")
    Next
EndFunc   ;==>_main

Func signin()
    ; win state sets window to maximum.
    WinSetState("Search Archive - Internet Explorer", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

    Local $username = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "user_username")
    Local $password = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "user_password")
    Local $loginbutton = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "user_submit")

    _IEFormElementSetValue($username, "UserName")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($password, "Password")
    _IEAction($loginbutton, "click")
EndFunc   ;==>signin

Func search()
    Local $subject = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "search_name")
    Local $sender = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "search_sender")

    _IEFormElementSetValue($subject, "Outbound" & $Array & "Jan1-March31 2015")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($sender, $Array & "@email.com")
EndFunc   ;==>search

Thank you for leading me to the answer!  This works properly if I call the For loop on the main function otherwise I get an error stating its not defined in the other functions which makes sense because the $i is not global.  Thank you again, I started learning AutoIt two weeks ago so I apologize if I missed some very basic things but greatly appreciate your help!

 

#include <IE.au3>

Declare your funcs with params: {example: Func signin($sUser, $Pass)}
and call it with the params and it would work. 

Btw.: where are your passwords stored?

Thank you for the tip on declaring the functions.

There are no passwords stored.  In the signin function the defined value for username and password is static because with the cabinet admin account we have access to everything by only defining the email address in the search.

      I have an array of subarrays, eg:
      local $a[3] = [ 1, 2, 3 ] local $b[3] = [ 4, 5, 6 ] local $c[2] = [ $a, $b ] I can read read a subarray element of the array, as follows:
      local $c12 = ($c[1])[2] ; result: $c12 = 6 However, when I try to set a subarray element as follows, it fails:
      ($c[1])[2] = 12 ; this fails to set subarray element local $c12 = ($c[1])[2] ; result: $c12 = 6 How to set a subarray element ?
      Thanks

      Good morning everyone, I thought I had already solved this issue but it turns out I did not. 
      My code finds unread emails with this specific subject line of "request" but when I change the subject to SKIPPED + "request" = ("SKIPPED request") the program still finds the email and tries to process it. I only want to process emails with the exact match subject of "request".
      Here is my code that "finds" the unread emails with the subject of "request" or so I thought. 
      Func ListUnreadEmails() ;******************************************************************************* ; Lists all unread E-mails from the folder Outlook-UDF-Test ;******************************************************************************* ; Stores all the unRead emails into an array Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, _ "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) ; Displays the array of unRead emails If IsArray($aItems) Then ;_ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Unread mails") Else MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", _ "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended) EndIf ; Gets the number of unread emails Global $numberOfUnRead = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) - 1 ;MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails", $numberOfUnRead) EndFunc It acts as if any part of the subject containing the word "request" and the email is unread that it will try to process it. (I think)

      Good afternoon, I am in need of some help. I am sure this is a stupid question requiring only one or two lines of code. However, I would greatly appreciate the help I cannot figure this out. I also tried searching for the answer on the internet but no one except me apparently seems to be having a hard time figuring this out and or is asking about it. 
      I simply want to change the "status" of an email from unread to read once I have processed it. My code is over 500 lines and I would like not to clutter this post with it. Assume I have all my includes and connections properly defined and stuff. 
      Here is the bit of code where I am trying to change the email that was used from unread to read:
      Func ChangeEmailStatus() ;******************************************************************************* ; changes the status of an email from unread to Read ;******************************************************************************* Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows) _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[$i][0], Default, "Read=True") MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0]) MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0]) Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows) EndFunc
