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, I'm trying to find a text value inside of a html.
      This is what the line looks like normally:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">TEXT HERE</span> </p> The text then changes to a non breaking space:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">&nbsp;</span> </p> And then it changes back to normal text but it's different every time.
      Can I code this so that it grabs the text every time it changes and has a variable that represents it?
      I currently have this inside of my loop:
      $span = .document.getElementsByTagName("span") For $text In $span If $text.value = "&nbsp;" Then Sleep(50) MsgBox(0,0,0) ;messagebox to test if it can be found, but I don't know how to grab the text EndIf Next The problem is that there are many other lines in the html that have the same span but are called "line3", "line5", etc and the one I need is from "line1".
      I will appreciate if anyone can help with this!

      I have kept below line to wait for IE to load the site completely and continue.
      _IELoadWait($oIE)
       
      But, the code is continuing without waiting for it and I my execution is failing as the elements are not loaded completely.

       
      Any suggestions for alternate code to wait for the browser to load completely?

      We can select elements in IE using their IDs as below.
      Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "x-auto-16-input") But to one button in the webpage, there is no ID to it.
      In selenium we have option to select this element using the CssSelector and clicked the button using below code in c# selenium.
      driver.FindElement(By.CssSelector("button.x-btn-text")).Click(); What is the alternative for this in AUtoIT?

      Good morning everyone
      I worked a bit on a little project of mine, and I managed to do what I was trying to do, or, automate a quiz in AutoIt.
      Now, everything works fine but, in order to achieve what I'm trying to achive, I'd like to make this script run faster.
      I'll attach a portion of the code in order to let you understand what my script does.
      $objIE_h1 = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "h1") ; Take the text of the answer If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura degli h1 nella pagina. - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else For $objElement In $objIE_h1 $strInnerText = $objElement.innerText Next Select Case StringInStr($strInnerText, "QUESTION") ; Here is the question ; PS4 PRO $objSpans = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "span") ; Answers are stored here For $objElement In $objSpans If $i >= 4 Then $strAnswer = $objElement.innerText ; Take the text of the answer n° 0, 1, 2, 3 If StringInStr($strAnswer, "CORRECT ANSWER") Then ; If I match the correct answer, then, I have to click on the input with answer id = answer_i $j = $i - 4 $objInput = _IEGetObjById($objIE, "answer_" & $j) If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura della risposta #" & $i & " - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else _IEAction($objInput, "click") If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante il click sull'elemento. - Errore: " & @error) Else ConsoleWrite($j & ") Risposta: " & $strAnswer & @CRLF) ExitLoop EndIf EndIf EndIf $i+=1 Else $i+=1 EndIf Next $i = 0 $j = 0 This is what my script does.
      Questions are 20, in which I have 15 multiple choice question, 2 images ( on which I use _IEImgClick() ), and 3 text inputs ( a simple send with the text I have to enter ).
      How can I make all of these, faster?
      If I reach this goal, I've probably done one of my best goals in life, and I'd like to share my happiness with you, giving a huge donation to this fantastic community!
      Thanks for your help
