Problem with IE

9 posts in this topic

Hello guys, i'm a rookie trying to create a script that logs me in to steam forums. After that it has to refresh every x seconds.

But there is a problem, whenever i run the script it says variable not declared.

Can somebody please help me out?

 

#include <ie.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Call ("internetexist")

Func internetexist()
If WinExists("Steam Community - Internet Explorer") Or WinExists("Rocket League Ruilen :: Steam Community - Internet Explorer") Then
    MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "IE", "Found it.")
    Call("Logn")
Else
Global $oIE = _IECreate("https://steamcommunity.com/login/home/?goto=app%2F252950%2Ftradingforum%2F"); i declared $oIE here, but...
Call("Logn")
        EndIf
EndFunc

Func Logn()
;Global $oIE = _IECreate("https://steamcommunity.com/login/home/?goto=app%2F252950%2Ftradingforum%2F");if i remove this line it gives "Variable used without being declared." why??
Global $oIEA = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1)
Global $user = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "username")
Global $pass = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "password")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($user, "test")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($pass, "****")
Global $oSubmit = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "SteamLogin")
Global $clicklogin = _IEAction($oSubmit, "Click")
Sleep(2000)
EndFunc

While 1
    Sleep(10000)
    ConsoleWrite("Refreshing")
    _IEAction($oIE, "refresh")
WEnd

"C:\Users\X\Desktop\autoit\trading rl BIJNA.au3" (19) : ==> Variable used without being declared.:
Global $user = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "username")
Global $user = _IEGetObjByName (^ ERROR

try to declare Global $oIE outside the function (just before the Call ("internetexist")) and remove the "Global" statement from within the function.


small minds discuss people average minds discuss events great minds discuss ideas.... and use AutoIt....

It's no good codind practice to declare Globaal variable in a func. Try it this way:

#include <ie.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Global $oIE

Call("internetexist")

Func internetexist()
    If WinExists("Steam Community - Internet Explorer") Or WinExists("Rocket League Ruilen :: Steam Community - Internet Explorer") Then
        MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "IE", "Found it.")
        $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1)
        Call("Logn")
    Else
        $oIE = _IECreate("https://steamcommunity.com/login/home/?goto=app%2F252950%2Ftradingforum%2F")
        Call("Logn")
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>internetexist

Func Logn()
    Local $user = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "username")
    Local $pass = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "password")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($user, "test")
    _IEFormElementSetValue($pass, "****")
    Local $oSubmit = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "SteamLogin")
    Local $clicklogin = _IEAction($oSubmit, "Click")
    Sleep(2000)
EndFunc   ;==>Logn

While 1
    Sleep(10000)
    ConsoleWrite("Refreshing")
    _IEAction($oIE, "refresh")
WEnd

When I run your script with the line uncommented, it doesn't generate an error for me.

Hey guys,

I'm encountering a new problem, i have to click a button on the site.

When i search for the object Id, it's not there.

Look:

<a class="btn_darkblue_white_innerfade btn_medium responsive_OnClickDismissMenu" href="javascript:Forum_CreateTopic( 'Trading_9036925' );">
<span>          Een nieuwe discussie starten                </span></a>

My unfinished code:

Local $oTopic = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "$???") ;get the topic button
Local $oclicktopic = _IEAction($???, "Click");  click it

Is there a way to tackle this problem?

Then you don't tested it with a already running instance from IE

      [SOLVED] Parse elements of a webpage NOT created by _IECreate
      By Faalamva
      Hello,
      Let's take a simple example to illustrate my case.
      I open a webpage with the command _IECreate and I parse all its elements :
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.york.ac.uk/teaching/cws/wws/webpage1.html") $oElements = _IETagNameAllGetCollection($oIE) For $oElement In $oElements ConsoleWrite("Tagname: " & $oElement.tagname & @CRLF & "Id: " & $oElement.id & @CRLF & "InnerText: " & $oElement.innerText & @CRLF & "--------------------------------" & @CRLF) Next Now let's imagine I simulate a click with MouseClick to the link "lesson two" at the bottom of this webpage. A new webpage will open :
      http://www.york.ac.uk/teaching/cws/wws/webpage2.html
      I'd like to get the elements (tagname, id, innertext) of this new webpage, just like I got them for the first webpage. But for this, I presume I would have to get a new $oIE2 Object variable of an InternetExplorer.Application, in order to be able to use the _IETagNameAllGetCollection once again.
      How am I supposed to do this ?
      Thank you !

      [SOLVED] [IE.au3] How to "refresh" elements coordinates after the first use of _IECreate ?
      By Faalamva
      Hi,
      I'm using the IE.au3 library to parse elements in a webpage and get their (x,y) coordinates.
      Main commands I'm using are :         
      $oIE = _IECreate($myWebPage) $oElements = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "label") $windowleft = $oIE.document.parentwindow.screenLeft $windowtop = $oIE.document.parentwindow.screenTop $oElementPosX = $windowleft + _IEfindPosX($oElement) $oElementPosY = $windowtop + _IEfindPosY($oElement) Now things become a bit tricky when i simulate a scroll in my webpage :
      $oIE.document.parentwindow.scroll(0, $myScrollY) Because once this is done, the coordinates of the elements are still what they were before the scroll.
      I can manage this problem by keeping track of the number of pixels I have scrolled, and compute the new "real" ($oElementPosX, $oElementPosY).
      But I'm pretty sure there's a more efficient / more elegant way to do it.
      What's more in some situations, when I click some controls in the webpage, the webpage adds new elements and shifts the controls below by a random number of pixel, so my workaround can't be used...
      So here's my question : Is there a way to "refresh" the calculation of label coordinates ($oElementPosX, $oElementPosY) after a scroll ?
      Thank you !
      EDIT : I forgot to post the _IEfindPosX and _IEfindPosY functions (found somewhere on this forum) :
      Func _IEfindPosX($o_object) Local $curleft = 0 Local $parent = $o_object If IsObj($parent) Then While IsObj($parent) $curleft += $parent.offsetLeft $parent = $parent.offsetParent WEnd Else Local $objx = $o_object.x If IsObj($objx) Then $curleft += $objx EndIf Return $curleft EndFunc Func _IEfindPosY($o_object) Local $curtop = 0 Local $parent = $o_object If IsObj($parent) Then While IsObj($parent) $curtop += $parent.offsetTop $parent = $parent.offsetParent WEnd Else Local $objy = $o_object.y If IsObj($objy) Then $curtop += $objy EndIf Return $curtop EndFunc

      Error im trying to trap with _IEFrameGetCollection & _IEPropertyGet
      By eyegeegeewhy
      Hi
      I'm having some trouble with my script that scrapes out the content of iframes from pages using IE. On certain pages the script always fails , my fist thought was it was a timing issue so i tried adding Sleep(5000) in a few places and that doesn't appear to make any difference and it seems to always be the same pages so im not thinking its about timing.
      The error in the console reads
      "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3" (2308) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.: $oTemp = $oObject.document.body $oTemp = $oObject^ ERROR My code is as follows
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <File.au3> #include <String.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("about:blank") $OriginalURL = "http://urbanikstreetdance-glasgow.co.uk/contact/3762801" _IENavigate($oIE, $OriginalURL) Local $oFrames = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE) Local $iNumFrames = @extended If $iNumFrames > 0 Then Sleep(1000) Local $oFrame = 0 For $i = 1 To ($iNumFrames - 1) $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE, $i) ConsoleWrite(@error) $frame_html = _IEPropertyGet($oFrame, "innerhtml") & @CRLF If StringLeft($frame_html, 7) = "<iframe" Then ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & $OriginalURL & "|" & _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "locationurl") & $frame_html) EndIf Next EndIf Does anyone have any ideas on either how to stop it from failing or something i can do to identify that it will fail so i can exclude it from being checked.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated

      Assistance with Javascript and IE
      By MattG1991
      Hello everyone. I've a quick question. And yes, I am fairly new to AutoIt (in case you were wondering). 
      I'm writing a program that will open a webpage and inject Javascript code into the address bar. 
      _IENavigate($oie, "javascript:var oArray = document.getElementsByClassName('tab_caption'); for(i = 0; i < oArray.length; i++) { if(oArray.innerHTML == 'Information') oArray.click(); };")
      The line clicks on the tab listed as "Information", then it doesn't continue. Is there a way I can make AutoIt run this command for a specified amount of time, then move on to the next line of code?

      IE.au3 error (Line 715)
      By scslmd
      Hi,
      Version: Autoit v3.3.14.1, IE3 T30-2 released 20140819
      Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I've been struggling over this error the last week and unable to find a solution or work around.
      Similar issue?
       
      Description of issue: I have an AutoIt script that attaches to an IE9 session and parses an iframe containing patient demographics (name, medical record #, etc) that seems to be working for the first few seconds to minutes but eventually errors out with the error below. Always consistently on line 715. When initially run, it will return valid and correct information but it will eventually error out. Initially I thought it was because I was switching from patient to patient (i.e. catching it when there was no data) but when I don't do anything at all (no activity on the IE9 web page), it will still give an error. I have not found any posts about this specific error at line 715. Any guidance to solving this error is grateful.
