Clicking Javascript Alert with IE hidden

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! When I click a button on a certain webpage, I get a Javascript Alert Box with 2 options, OK and Cancel

This is the information I get with the AutoIt v3 Window Info while the IE is visible

How would I go about being able to click the OK button while IE is invisible, because the alertbox doesn't even show up when IE is invisible.


This is what I tried so far

WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]", "OK")
        MsgBox("", "", "FOUND")
        ControlSend("[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]", "OK", "", "{ENTER}")

But I don't even get the MSGBOX to appear

If the snipet is your only scriptcode, it should work. If in the same script other code to, the other code wouldn't work in the time waiting for appearing msgbox.

@Dgameman1 if your script using _IELoadWait then in some cases this can be a problem when you are trying to wait in situation when IE popup msgbox.

You are waiting for IE but IE waitng for you.

I tested around and this is the snippet I'm using at the moment

$TrashCan = $DeletedProfile.parentElement.parentElement.nextElementSibling.nextElementSibling.nextElementSibling.firstElementChild.firstElementChild
        _IEAction($TrashCan, "click")

The MSGBOX doesn't even appear until I manually click the OK/Cancel button on the alert.

It's like the Alert Box is stopping my script from running for some reason?

So the Alertbox appears right after

_IEAction($TrashCan, "click")

I put 

_IEAction($TrashCan, "click")

Second is not written in the console until I manually dismiss the dialog box. But then once I click Ok or Cancel, the console writes Second. It's like the Alert Box stops my script from running.
