Unpredictable results

Recommended Posts


I'm having unpredictable results - rather than post all the code right away (as it's quite lengthy) I've attached an image of the code section in question and an image of the result I'm getting and an image of the result I'm expecting.

As you'll see, box 1 and 2 under Source have the default 'Please select' whereas they should have 'Working Tax Credits' and 'Disability living allowance' in 1 and 2 respectively.

Whilst watching the code run I can see the correct results are being selected but by the time the script finishes executing those boxes have changed back to default.

Here's the site https://www.platform.co.uk/webapp/WEBAPP.EXE?WSYD_EVENT=PW10kkfF

I should mention that if I add in a delay e.g. Sleep(500) then selection remains as expected - but I would rather not do this as it slows the script down.

If $MonthlyUniversalTaxCreditIncomeOne > 0 Then
   $oSelect = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "AP1AMT1")
   $oSelect.Value = ($MonthlyUniversalTaxCreditIncomeOne * 12)
   $oSelect = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "OGICMB1A")
   _IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSelect, 8, 1, "byValue")

If $MonthlyStateDisabilityIncomeOne > 0 Then
   $oSelect = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "AP1AMT2")
   $oSelect.Value = ($MonthlyStateDisabilityIncomeOne * 12)
   $oSelect = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "OGICMB1B")
   _IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSelect, 10, 1, "byValue")

Please post the code that reproduces that effect, dont need to be everything, just a sample that exemplifies your problem. And avoid to put the code as a image, is much easier to copy and modify than write everything. :)

Ok done :)

Hmmm. Just tried running the code again multiple times and it seems to be working every time now? Very strange.

@Dent Very annoying event, but its not unpredictable. :)

Just do the source first and you will be fine, i also add a event fire that you were forgetting.

Local $oSource1 = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "OGICMB1A")
If Not IsObj($oSource1) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oSource1" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSource1, 8)

Local $oSource1Ammount = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "AP1AMT1")
If Not IsObj($oSource1Ammount) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oSource1Ammount" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oSource1Ammount, "800")

Local $oSource2 = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "OGICMB1B")
If Not IsObj($oSource2) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oSource2" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSource2, 10)

Local $oSource2Ammount = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "AP1AMT2")
If Not IsObj($oSource2Ammount) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oSource2Ammount" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oSource2Ammount, "900")

Local $oDateOfBirth_DAY = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "AP1DAY")
If Not IsObj($oDateOfBirth_DAY) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oDateOfBirth_DAY" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDateOfBirth_DAY, 1)

Local $oDateOfBirth_MONTH = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "AP1MONTH")
If Not IsObj($oDateOfBirth_MONTH) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oDateOfBirth_MONTH" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDateOfBirth_MONTH, 1)

Local $oDateOfBirth_YEAR = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "AP1YEAR")
If Not IsObj($oDateOfBirth_YEAR) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oDateOfBirth_YEAR" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDateOfBirth_YEAR, 1990)

Local $oEmploymentStatus = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "EmpSt1")
If Not IsObj($oEmploymentStatus) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oEmploymentStatus" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oEmploymentStatus, "O")

Local $oMainIncome = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "AFFINC1")
If Not IsObj($oMainIncome) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oMainIncome" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oMainIncome, "5000")

Local $oBonus = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "PW10kkbA")
If Not IsObj($oBonus) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oBonus" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementSetValue($oBonus, "1200")

Local $oGender = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "APP1GDR")
If Not IsObj($oGender) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oGender" & @CRLF)
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oGender, "M")

Local $oJointApplication = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "JointAppN")
If Not IsObj($oJointApplication) Then Exit ConsoleWrite("Error in $oJointApplication" & @CRLF)
_IEAction($oJointApplication, "click")

      I am trying to wait for a pop up in IE with the title of "filed". I believe it is in a IE-frame.  I am not having any luck attaching to it. The best thing I have been able to do is find the title using the below code. 
      Is there a way I can just make AutoIt wait until it finds the  "Filed" value from the below code?
      Thank you for any help, I am probably making this harder then it really is. 
      $oIE = _IEAttach("Meditech") $oInputs1 = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") For $oInput1 in $oInputs1 If StringStripWS($oInput1.innertext,1) = "Filed" Then $target = $oInput1 ExitLoop Else $target = "NOT FOUND" EndIf Next I have tried different variations of
      _IEAttach("MEDITECH","Filed") WinWaitActive("MEDITECH", "Filed") Here is what the popup looks like.

      Do Sleep(1000) Until WinActive("[Class:IEFrame]") While WinActive("[Class:IEFrame]") Local $hIE = WinGetHandle("[Class:IEFrame]") Local $hCtrl = ControlGetHandle($hIE, "", "[ClassNN:DirectUIHWND1]") Local $aPos = ControlGetPos($hIE, "", $hCtrl) Local $aWinPos = WinGetPos($hIE) If ControlCommand($hIE, "", $hCtrl, "IsVisible") And $aPos[1] > .75 * $aWinPos[3] Then ; Check if the control is in the bottom 25% of the page. ControlClick($hIE, "", $hCtrl, "primary", 1, $aPos[2] - 70, $aPos[3] - 30) Sleep(500) ControlSend($hIE, "", $hCtrl, "{enter}") EndIf ExitLoop WEnd hope this can help,

      So, I am trying to automate and simplify the retrieval of data from our company website (made by an outside company). I've had experience with IE manipulation via autoIt however, this one is a bit tricky for me.
      I have a table that has 81 cells which are buttons. What im trying to get is the information in "data-content" tag. 
      <a id="bookedVehicleLinkButton" class="btn btn-sm btn-block btn-xsm btn-success" data-toggle="popover" data-placement="bottom" data-original-title="Trip Details" data-container="body" data-content="Plate No: UGQ-857<br />Model: TOYOTA GRANDIA GL" href="javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$ctl00$masterContentPlaceholder$reservationContentPlaceholder$bookingDataList$ctl00$vehicleDataList$ctl28$bookedVehicleLinkButton','')">IXARA (LITO SULIT)</a> Tried using the following:
      $oTagsCell = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "td") For $item in $oTagsCell $test = _IEPropertyGet($item, "innertext") ClipPut($test) Next $oTagsTable = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "table") For $item in $oTagsTable $test = _IEPropertyGet($item, "innertext") ClipPut($test) Next $oTagsLink = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "a") For $item in $oTagsLink $test = _IEPropertyGet($item, "innertext") ClipPut($test) Next I don't receive any errors from my aforementioned attempts however no luck in getting those "data-contents". Attached is a screenshot, I do the looking of elements in chrome but the codes are for IE. And if you might ask, the cells (or buttons) have the same ID.
      Thank you guys for any inputs.

      At work we have some proprietary website, users have to login to.
      I have "made" an autoit executable to start IE, go the website, login, so the user do not have input their credentials every time.
      By NDA I am not allowed disclosed the URL of the website nor the login credentials
      So I made a fake website and an autoitscript to illustrate my question.
      #include <ie.au3> $oIE = _IECreate ("about:blank", 0, 1, 1, 1) $HWND = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd") WinActivate ($HWND,"") WinSetState($HWND, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) _IENavigate ($oIE, "http://demo.rkilinc.nl",1) The above start my demo website. The actual website has some links in the footer that I do not want most people click on.
      I contacted the developers of the website and they are thinking of making an option to configure what links to show in the footer, but they said it's not a high priority for them.
      I discovered, that by click F12 and deleting the <footer> element the footer is delete from the live page view (until the page is reloaded off course)
      I want to automate the removal of the footer, without using things like send().
      I tried getting the footer with _IEGetObjById and deleting it with _IEAction, but that didn't work.
      Does any one has an idea how I could delete the footer directly from view with an autoit script?
      TIA, Jem.
