Can't read style element

2 posts in this topic

I'm trying to create an autoPop tool for AliExpress. When I get to their address page, there are a number of input fields. There are also two drop downs. One is for the country and, depending on what you select, the other dropdown appears with city names or, a standard input box is visible to add a city (See the images). So if I select "United States" the other dropdown is visible with all the states. If I select "France", the input box is visible to enter a French city. Seems cool enough but I'm really struggling trying to get this to work.

This is my test code to work all this out:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>

Local $StartPos
Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://shoppingcart.aliexpress.com/order/confirm_order.htm?objectId=1792065272&from=aliexpress&countryCode=US&shippingCompany=EMS&provinceCode=&cityCode=&promiseId=&itemCondition=&=556&aeOrderFrom=main_detail&skuAttr=&quantity=1")
    If @error Then Exit MsgBox(16, "openURL Error", @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
    ;If $bVerbose == true Then MsgBox(0, "openURL", "IECreate Object Created")
;Get the Collections
$oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input"); Input Fields
$oSelects = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "select"); Select Fields

;Loop through the Selects
For $oSelect In $oSelects
    If $oSelect.name = "country" Then _IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSelect, "France", 1, "byText",1)
Next

;Loop through the inputs
For $oInput In $oInputs
    If $oInput.name = "email" Then $oInput.Value = "test@test.com"
    If $oInput.name = "contactPerson"  Then $oInput.Value = "My Full Name"
    If $oInput.name = "address"  Then $oInput.Value = "123 Anystreet"
    If $oInput.name = "address2"  Then $oInput.Value = "NA"
    If $oInput.name = "province"  Then
        MsgBox(0, "","$oInput.name = " & $oInput.name &@CRLF &"$oInput.style = " & $oInput.style &@CRLF &"$oInput.type = " & $oInput.type&@CRLF &"$oInput.maxLength = " & $oInput.maxlength)
        $oInput.Value = "FrenchyLand"
    EndIf

    If $oInput.name = "city" Then $oInput.Value = "AnyTown"
    If $oInput.name = "zip" Then $oInput.Value = "12345"
    If $oInput.name = "mobileNo" Then $oInput.Value = "1-415-555-1212"
Next

So I open the page on AliExpress and get an   "input" collection and a "select" Collection
I first loop through the Selects until I find "country" and then select "France"
I then loop through all the inputs and put the information in the correct inputs.

When the country is one that AliExpress knows the states or provinces for,  they swap Styles between the input box and the dropdown  to either "display: inline-block;" or "display: none;" which hides one, or the other (See the AliExpDOM Image).

Problem #1: When I use the "_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oSelect, "France", 1, "byText",1)" To make the dropdown selection, It selects it but does not invoke the widget to change the second dropdown to an input box.

Problem #2: I thought a possible solution would be to read the Style of the input box and based on the value, either place text in the input box or go to the dropdown and make a selection. I can't seem to read the Style attribute from the collection ie: $oInput.style returns nothing.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated. If I figure out a solution before and answer here, I will publish it here for anyone else who might be struggling with these kinds of things

Thanks

I tried doing it in FF in many ways, and it just does not respond like it should, with JS. I guess some kind of js library is the problem?

Here's an idea:

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://shoppingcart.aliexpress.com/order/confirm_order.htm?objectId=1792065272&from=aliexpress&countryCode=US&shippingCompany=EMS&provinceCode=&cityCode=&promiseId=&itemCondition=&=556&aeOrderFrom=main_detail&skuAttr=&quantity=1")

$oCountry = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "country")
$oBoundingClientRect = $oCountry.getBoundingClientRect()

$tRect = _WinAPI_GetWindowRect($oIE.hwnd)
$aPos = ControlGetPos(HWnd($oIE.hwnd), Default, "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server]")
MouseClick("primary", $tRect.Left+$aPos[0]+$oBoundingClientRect.left+(($oBoundingClientRect.right-$oBoundingClientRect.left)/2), $tRect.Top+$aPos[1]+$oBoundingClientRect.top+(($oBoundingClientRect.bottom-$oBoundingClientRect.top)/2), 1, 0)
Sleep(100)
ControlSend(HWnd($oIE.hwnd), Default, "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server]", "{HOME}", 0)
Sleep(100)
ControlSend(HWnd($oIE.hwnd), Default, "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server]", "{DOWN}", 0)
Sleep(100)
ControlSend(HWnd($oIE.hwnd), Default, "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server]", "{DOWN}", 0)
Sleep(100)
ControlSend(HWnd($oIE.hwnd), Default, "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server]", "{DOWN}", 0)
Sleep(100)
ControlSend(HWnd($oIE.hwnd), Default, "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server]", "{DOWN}", 0)
Sleep(100)
ControlSend(HWnd($oIE.hwnd), Default, "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server]", "{ENTER}", 0)

I tried getting the position of the option elements, but apparently that might be impossible :), so here's the next best thing.

$oInput.style is only for local styles set with the style attribute, i think. Also depending on the IE version only properties within the style object can be set and read, like $oInput.style.backgroundColor

      Hi all,
       
      Anyone have any idea how to close all open tabs except a specific one I manually open.  Assuming I don't know what is open in all the tabs except just the one I want to keep open.
       
      I didn't want to use sendkeys and I was trying to use the following code to list the title (or url) of the 3 open tabs and  after I got that part working I would just close the other 2. This sample only displays the title of the first open tab
      #include <IE.au3> Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800 $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com") __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) Local $aIE[1] $aIE[0] = 0 Local $i = 1, $oIE While 1     $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", $i)     If @error = $_IEStatus_NoMatch Then ExitLoop     ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "title") & @CRLF)     ReDim $aIE[$i + 1]     $aIE[$i] = $oIE ;each item holds object     $aIE[0] = $i ;first item holds count     $i += 1 WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE[0]) ; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab  
      Thanks for any and all help

      Local $sMyString = "Please Select" ;############ ENTER ############# Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE) For $oLink In $oLinks Local $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText") If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then _IEAction($oLink, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next

      Hey,
      i would like to set a value into an INPUT field.
      Checked the _IEFormElementSetValue function but that does require _IEFormGetObjByName and this is where the problem comes in. The input field I want to write to is not a part of a form tag. It is part of a table.
      <input type="text" class="w2" id="nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od" name="nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od" onchange="GLOBAL.pocetInzerceNZ(&quot;nabidka_vozidel_formular&quot;,&quot;tach_od&quot;,&quot;&quot;);" autocomplete="off"> I tried this but that didn't work:
      $oDownloadSamples = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "nabidka_vozidel_formular_tach_od") _IEFormElementSetValue($oDownloadSamples, "123") If you want to try the site I'm working with is https://www.tipcars.cz/. There is a menu on the top left hand side and if you click the "vyhledat" button the input fields will show up.
      Thanks

      I am now able to populate the dropdown menus at https://www.tipcars.com/.
      The dropdowns are dynamic and do not have a Text value, only ids.
      Is there a way to get all the available options from a dropdown?
      $url = "https://www.tipcars.com/" $oIE = _IECreate($url) _IELoadWait($oIE) $oDownloadSamples = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo") _IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDownloadSamples, "C") Above code, populates ID 'C' into the 'druh' dropdown, which results in selecting 'užitkové'. 
      Is there a way so I can grab all of the options from the dropdown menu? I could easily grab all the IDs but I am afraid they will change in the future so I would much rather match the text titles and assign the option IDs grabbed from site.
      This is what the options are according to Chrome:
      <select class="w1"id="homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo"name="homepage_vyhl_frm_vozidlo"onchange="try{NABIDKA_VOZIDEL_FORMULAR.naplnSelectZnacka('homepage_vyhl_frm');GLOBAL.pocetInzerceHZ('homepage_vyhl_frm','vozidlo');}catch(ex){odeslatJsChybu('formHOMEPAGE onChange 1: ' + ex.message, 'formHomePage onChange 1', -1);}"> <option value="A" style="color: black;">osobní a terénní (56 334)</option> <option value="C" style="color: black;">užitkové (4 333)</option> <option value="D" style="color: black;">nákladní (3 742)</option> <option value="E" style="color: black;">autobusy (56)</option> <option value="F" style="color: black;">obytné (373)</option> <option value="G" style="color: black;">přívěsy (1 179)</option> <option value="J" style="color: black;">motorky (780)</option> <option value="S" style="color: black;">pracovní stroje (605)</option> <option value="L" style="color: black;">ostatní (235)</option></select> Also, this cannot be grabbed by _INetGetSource.
      Thanks
