Internet Explorer text area scroll?

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

How can you scroll to the end of a text area in IE without using focus/ControlSend? I have tried several solutions (see code below) but I can't seem to get them to work.

Test HTML (test.html)

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <body>
        <textarea id="textarea-test" rows="4" cols="50">
        </textarea>
    </body>
</html>

 

AutoIt Test Code:

#RequireAdmin
#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate(@ScriptDir & "\test.html")

Local $hWnd = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd")

Local $oTextarea = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "textarea-test")

Local $sText = ""
For $i = 1 To 30
    $sText &= $i & "&#13;&#10;"
    _IEPropertySet($oTextarea, "innerhtml", $sText)

    ;NOT WORKING
    ;$oTextarea.document.parentwindow.scroll(0, 99999)
    ;_IEAction($oTextarea, "scrollintoview")

    ;NOT WORKING
    ;$iDocHeight = $oTextarea.document.body.scrollHeight()
    ;$oTextarea.document.parentwindow.scrollTo(0, $iDocHeight)

    ;NOT WORKING
    ;$oTextarea.document.parentwindow.scrollTo(0, 99999)

    ;NOT WORKING
    ;$oTextarea.scrollintoview()

    ;WORKING
    _IEAction($oTextarea, "focus")
    ControlSend($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]", "^{end}")

    Sleep(100)
Next

      I have one script that creates _IECreateEmbedded and another script that does _IEAttach.
      I do this because when autoit is doing something, the Embedded IE starts stalling (eg jquery progress animation)
      But there is a new problem.
      When IE is having its own process (like in the example above) any _IE command is slow (in the script that Attaches).
      Here is a comparison of when its in separate and when its in same process:
      Separate process _IETagNameGetCollection : 5000ms
      Separate process _IEAction: 850ms
      Same process _IETagNameGetCollection : 1ms
      Same proccess _IEAction: 135ms
       
      If I try to attach to an embedded IE that is done in c#, I get lighting fast results.
      As you can see, _IE functions work very slow when the embedded IE we are attaching to is made in Autoit.
       
      I did a test and if I empty the WHILE loop in IE process I get these results(but the cpu is at 30% as expected):
      Separate process _IETagNameGetCollection : 33ms
      Separate process _IEAction: 13ms
       
      It slows down if you put anything (like GUIGetMsg) in the WHILE loop.
       
      How do I fix this?
       
      Create IE:
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <IE.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() GUICreate("My Embedded Web control Test", 640, 580, (@DesktopWidth - 640) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 580) / 2, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW + $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS + $WS_CLIPCHILDREN) GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 40, 600, 360) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;Show GUI _IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.autoitscript.com") $timer = TimerInit() $oLink = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "a", 3) ;takes 1ms ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($timer) & @CRLF) $timer = TimerInit() _IEAction($oLink, "click") ;takes 135ms ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($timer) & @CRLF) While 1 Local $iMsg = GUIGetMsg() Select Case $iMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop EndSelect WEnd  
      Attach to IE:
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IEAttach("My Embedded Web control Test", "embedded") $timer = TimerInit() $oLink = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "a", 3) ; 5000ms ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($timer) & @CRLF) $timer = TimerInit() _IEAction($oLink, "click") ; 850ms ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($timer) & @CRLF)

      Hi all,
      I've written the script below to automatically login to a website, in this case infusionsoft.com
      The auto login works fine. Is there a way for me to get errors from Internet explorer, if the login fails because of wrong login credentials. I have searched around, but cannot make sense of this.
      Please forgive me if I have overlooked something simple. I am new to autoit. Please see my script below.
      #include <IE.au3>
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

      Func AccountAutoLogin()
         ;This line sets the website page to open and inject information
         Global $oIE = _IECreate("https://signin.infusionsoft.com/login")
         ;set the variables to pull the username and password object names
         Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "username")
         Local $password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "password")
         ;set the $oButtons variable to pull all the values of the button class
         Local $oButtons = _IETagnameGetCollection($oIE, "button")
         ;set the username and password values on the login form
         _IEFormElementSetValue ($username, "")
         _IEFormElementSetValue ($password, "")
         ; loop through the button class until we find the text on the login button, then click the button
         For $oButton in $oButtons
            If String($oButton.value) = " Log In " Then $test = $oButtons
               _IEAction($oButton, "click")
               _IELoadWait($oIE)
               if (@error) then MsgBox (0, "Error", @error)
            ExitLoop
         Next
      EndFunc

      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

      I'm trying to click on Java Dropbox using IE. However, I'm running into problems. There is a Dropbox "Please Select" with two options "Buy" and "Sell".
      I'm able to click on a drop box (please see code below) but i'm unable to select "Buy" or "Sell"".
      Local $sMyString = "Please Select" ;############ ENTER ############# Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE) For $oLink In $oLinks Local $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText") If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then _IEAction($oLink, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next  
      Please help

      Hello everyone,
      I'm working on a task where, a PDF file is opened (in IE browser) when I click a link in a website.
      I have to read the first page of the PDF to find particular strings. Can you please share some ideas?
