Help! _FFClick doesn't work on buttons anymore? (FF.au3)

1 post in this topic

NOTE: MY STACK OVERFLOW QUESTION HERE ALSO: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/36162810/autoit-firefox-automation-ffclick-doesnt-work-on-buttons-anymore-ff-au3 

Help! I had AutoIt code that would do the following:

 1. load a page in FireFox, then 
 2. click on the 'browse' button, then 
 3. waits for the File Upload window to appear

This code worked great and I used it many times! Now, about a month later, it stopped working. I checked the HTML page and it did NOT change, and the id is the same. 

Here are some resources:

Here is the HTML that I am trying to access. I am trying to click on #filename

    <fieldset>
        <legend>Import step one: upload Word Document</legend>
        <h2>Import Word Document: Upload</h2>
        <div class="field-group">
             <div class="checkbox/radio">
                  <label for="filename">Upload:</label>
                  <input id="filename" name="filename" size="50" "="" type="file">
             </div>
         </div>
         <input class="text hidden" name="pageId" value="158367782">
          <div class="buttons-container">
               <div class="buttons">
                    <span class="word-file-loading hidden" id="loading">Loading</span>
                    <input disabled="disabled" id="next" name="submit" value="Next" class="button" type="submit">
               </div>
          </div>
    </fieldset>

Here's my simplified AutoIt code that should press the #filename button:

    ; 1) OPEN THE PAGE (WORKS) (I changed the URL)
        _FFOpenURL("http://..../")

    ; 2) WAIT FOR PAGE TO LOAD (WORKS)
        _FFLoadWait()

    ; 3) SLEEP FOR 5 SECONDS (WORKS)
        Sleep(5000)

    ; 4) CLICK THE BROWSE BUTTON (FAILS)
    ;    (SAYS IT IS A SUCCESS BUT THE BUTTON NEVER GETS PRESSED!!)
        _FFClick("filename", "id")

    ; 5) WAIT FOR "FILE UPLOAD" WINDOW TO APPEAR (FAILS)
    ;    (FAILS BECAUSE BUTTON NEVER GOT PRESSED ABOVE)
        Local $result = WinWaitActive("File Upload","",10) 

Here is my full autoit code that should press the #filename button:

    ; 1) OPEN THE PAGE (WORKS)
        If _FFOpenURL("http://..../") Then
            FileWrite($log,"[INFO] Opened Page successfully." & @CRLF)
        Else
           FileWrite($log,"[ERROR] Could not open Page." & @error & " Extended Error Code = " & @extended  & @CRLF)
           MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not open Page.")
           Exit
        EndIf

    ; 2) WAIT FOR PAGE TO LOAD (WORKS)
        If _FFLoadWait() Then
            FileWrite($log,"[INFO] Waited to open page successfully." & @CRLF)
        Else
            FileWrite($log,"[ERROR] Could not wait for Page." & @error & " Extended Error Code = " & @extended  & @CRLF)
            MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not wait for Page.")
            Exit
        EndIf

    ; 3) SLEEP FOR 5 SECONDS 
        Sleep(5000)

    ; 4) CLICK THE BROWSE BUTTON 
    ;    (SAYS IT IS A SUCCESS BUT THE BUTTON NEVER GETS PRESSED!!)
        ;Click the "Choose File" button
        If _FFClick("filename", "id") Then
            FileWrite($log,"[INFO] Clicked the 'browse' button successfully." & @CRLF)
        Else
            FileWrite($log,"[ERROR] Could not click the 'browse' button." & @error & " Extended Error Code = " & @extended  & @CRLF)
            MsgBox(0, "Error", "Could not click the 'browse' button.")
            Exit
        EndIf

    ; 5) WAIT FOR "FILE UPLOAD" WINDOW TO APPEAR
    ;    (FAILS BECAUSE BUTTON NEVER GOT PRESSED ABOVE)

        ;Wait for the file upload dialog to appear
        Local $result = WinWaitActive("File Upload","",10) ;Wait 10 seconds for "File Upload" window to appear
        If $result == 0 Then
           FileWrite($log,"[ERROR] Waited for 'File Upload' to show, but it never did. " & @error & " Extended Error Code = " & @extended  & @CRLF)
           MsgBox(0, "Error", " Waited for 'File Upload' to show, but it never did. ")
           Exit
        Else
           FileWrite($log,"[INFO] Opened 'File Upload' dialog successfully. " & @CRLF)
        EndIf

Here is the errors shown from the Scite console (I replaced the URL):

    _FFOpenURL: http://...
    __FFSend: try{window.content.top.document.location.href='http://...'}catch(e){'_FFCmd_Err';};

      Hello Everyone! 
      I'm attempting to create a checklist app that performs other functions. For performance, I would like to check the box, then have the button to the right enabled. After that button is pressed, the second checkbox is enabled, and ready to be checked, allowing the second button to be pressed. After the second button is pressed, the completion/exit button is enabled/shown. I have my code that currently creates the GUI, creates the checkbox, but when you check it it enables the button and the next checkbox. Can't seem to figure out a Case for GUISetOnEvent. Any assistance would be appreciated!
      #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> ; Below is the GUI interface _DeploymentProcess() Func _DeploymentProcess() $aStep1 = GUICreate("Deployment Process", 475, 345, 500, 175) $CBcStep1 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("1. Step 01.", 15, 25, 300, 25) $BTNS1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 01", 365, 25, 90, 20) $CBcStep2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("2. Step 02.", 15, 50, 300, 25) $BTNS2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Email 02", 365, 50, 90, 20) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_DISABLE) $CBcStep3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hurray! You're Complete!", 85, 276, 300, 60) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_SHOW) ; Below are the button and checkbox enables/disables. GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE GUIDelete($aStep1) Return ; Step 1 Case $CBcStep1 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep1) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_ENABLE) Else GUICtrlSetState($BTNS1, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep2, $GUI_DISABLE) EndIf ; Step 2 Case $CBcStep2 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS2, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_ENABLE) Else GUICtrlSetState($BTNS2, $GUI_DISABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_DISABLE) EndIf Case $CBcStep3 If GUICtrlRead($CBcStep2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then GUICtrlSetState($BTNS10, $GUI_ENABLE) GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_SHOW) Else GUICtrlSetState($CBcStep3, $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE) EndIf Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $CBcStep3 #comments-end Exit EndSwitch WEnd EndFunc

      Hi everyone,

      Is there a way to determine whether the script that is running, is already running, without using;
       
      If WinExists ?

      Or is there a way to use "If WinExists" to determine the script itself?

      The reason I am asking this is because if I want someone to run the .Exe I have and they rename it to whatever they want, how could I then determine in the script to check if there's already an .Exe open, or the script itself is already open?

      Should I use Class, or how do I achieve this?

      Thanks in advance.

      Id like to build a little helpertool for my boss in office but i dont know how to sart it.
      thats no complicated task. im working for an insurancecenter and have to search the customers in different orders and different tags.
      due to my boss is old and not really commen with pc he saves the customers without system.
      eg, customer andreas statham got an insurenca for his car then i got to search for
      andreas statham car, andreas car statham, car andreas statham, statham andreas car, statham car andreas, car statham andreass etc to find all the files from this customer in the harddrive.
      some customers also are fmiliarnamed in one file like andreas statam and monika rog are married an both got a carinsurance then i got to earch for
      andreas statham monika rog car, andreas statham monika car rog,.... this can take real long to find the right customer if i do it from hand.
      how can i realise this someone in here got an excamlple script or has any sugestion?

      Is this possible to make program works like in diagram? There is so much encryption methods and UDFs are they give security? If the $Address will be crypted with some encryption algorithm could be possible to get the value of $Address in easy way? Of course We know its easy too look into autoit code and get value of variable and so We dont want to anyone see $Address value - there are functions Could func1.au3, func2.au3.. be for example func1.php or other type of file? As we know .php files are unnable to see. For example func1 would be read by FileRead() and then Execute() Is this generally possible to do?
      Will it give secure?
      What do you think about? Maybe there is something wrong in this concept or missed.
