Enter data into IE form that has a javascript editbox

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use IE.au3 UDF to auto fill a webpage. All goes well until I get to an editbox that appears to be a javascript. I am attaching a pic of the editbox. (I would be glad to add any other information needed to help me past this last hurdle in my script. I'm just not sure what questions you have to help me with this.)

What is the exact problem you encounter?
Do you get an error message or just unexpected results?
What have you tried so far?
Can you share your code?

Ideally you would provide us a link to the webpage in question. If that is not option, post the (redacted) source or at least see if you can identify the editor.


Regards,
Rob

I meant that this is not Java aplet, but I just realize that you  are talking about JavaScript, so please look again in the following answer:

Try to look for similar cases here, as I think this looks like normal HTML RTE (HTML RichText Editor).

Well I am using a modified script I found in the forum to search for all the input locations of the webpage in question. I have attached that script.  The webpage I am using is internal to our facility so you cannot access it.  I think this is the part of the page that I'm interested and my script finds LADD but I can't enter anything into it using AutoIt.

<textarea name=LADD title="Description"  cols=85 id="descrpt" TABINDEX=52 onKeypress=addAutoSpell(document.regform.LADD) style="height: 170px; width: 702px;" class="wysiwyg"></textarea>
 

I guess I thought it must be a javascript since I could not enter anything into it with AutoIt...

Does this help you answer my problem?

Maybe like this:

_IETextArea_SetInnerHtml($oIE, '<strong>TESTING</strong>')
Func _IETextArea_SetInnerHtml(ByRef $oIE, $sData)
    Local $oIE_TextArea = _IEGetObjById($oIE, 'descrpt')
    $oIE_TextArea.innerHtml = $sData
EndFunc

      Hello Everyone,
      I'm looking for a way to use an already open Internet Explorer (IE) window (if one is up and running) and then navigate to a new URL in a new IE tab.
      I thought that _IECreate would easily meet my needs. However, when I use the following script:
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://" & $Server & ":8444/", 1, 1, 0, 1) ...with one or more open IE windows, it still opens yet a new IE window.
      Are there any other ideas for how to reliably use an already open IE windows and then how to open a new tab in IE to navigate to a new URL?
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi,
      I'm working on an interface and I have a problem with zoom management. In desktop mode it works and in android cell mode it seems to work fine too. However, on a Windows tablet, it seems to have a problem ... Basically what I'm trying to do is display a modal in bootstrap 4. But when on the tablet I zoom, my modal s really big and out of my screen. On the android mobile, I remove the zoom before displaying the modal but on the Windows tablet I am unable to reproduce the same behavior.
       
      My toggle function to reset zoom before display modal  ( Yeah it maybe sketches but I'm not find other solutions)
      function resetZooming() { if (zoomOut) { $('meta[name=viewport]').attr('content', 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1'); setTimeout(resetZooming, 1000); zoomOut = false; }else{ $('meta[name=viewport]').attr('content', 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0'); zoomOut = true; } } And I call this function under my event
      $("#modalCreationForm").modal("show"); resetZooming();  
      If you have any ideas
      Thank you

      Hi All,
      I've tried to create a script to browse to a web page in IE, but it only works for some sites, I've tried to simplify the script as much as possible, hoping you can point me in the right direction - thanks.
      This one going to Google does work:
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.google.com.au/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) But this one going to OneDrive opens the IE page, but fails immediately returning the errors, and the IE window is not closed:
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_ClientDisconnected (-2147023174, Browser has been deleted prior to operation.)
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType ()
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IEQuit, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://abccorp-my.sharepoint.com/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) Even if I put a sleep timer in for 10 seconds after the _IECreate it still doesn't work
      Thanks all!

      On that page is a login form requiring username, password and then the clicking of the button (or pressing enter but I'm not a fan of using Send)
      Here's the section of code from the page that specifically deals with the form...
      <form> <div class="error-message-login" data-test="error-message"></div> <label> <span>User email</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="email" type="text" placeholder="Your email"> </div> </label> <label> <span>Password</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="password" type="password" placeholder="Password"> </div> </label> <button class="ui primary button" role="button" data-test="login">Login</button> <p> <a class="forgot-your-password" href="https://www.rightmove.co.uk/forgottenPasswordForm.html">Forgot your password?</a> </p> </form> Specifically the <button class...></button> is causing me problems as I can't find a way to click it. The 'User email' and 'Password' objects have an 'id' so I can reference these in the AutoIT code and interact with them and the button also previously had the id of 'login' but I guess in a change to this page that was altered.
      Oddly, if I get the code to show the instance of IE that is created and manually click Login or press Enter the page gives me an error saying 'Please enter your email address' even though it is there. I have to manually go into each field and make a change i.e. adding a character to the end of each field then deleting it before it will let me in by either clicking Login or pressing enter. So maybe there's so code elsewhere on the page that knows the fields haven't been physically typed in?
      Any help on this would be much appreciated.

      Hi, first of all thanks to all the guys who always help people in the forums, I wouldn't be able to do anything if wasn't for your help, even if I don't ask it myself.
       
      I've created this code to get some info on a monitoring network on my work. It relays on _IETableGetCollection and _IETableWriteToArray.
      It works well, but take around 3:25 minutes to get the info from 28 pages (some of them are large and take longer to load, but most of them are small and fast).
      My question is if you see a way to get the program to go faster...
       
      I've tried to make it easy for you to understand and edited somethings with sensitive info.
      (Some of the pages doesn't have the black divider with MIRA in the end, so I need to search if it is there or not.)
