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

      I am not sure on how to grab the innertext I want. Is there a way I can just grab the second line, or is there a better way to do it all together? 
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach("Form Details") $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "Col3") ;Phone MsgBox (0,"Oops",$oDiv.outertext) When I use this code I get

      I have come across a weird issue that I am not sure how to solve. For some reason, whenever I call WinActivate in certain scenarios instead of opening the single window that already exists, it will create a new blank tab. It should be able to be recreated with this:
      AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) Sleep(1000) For $i=0 To 10 WinActivate("Internet Explorer") Next I am not actually doing this in my code, it is just to demonstrate the fact that new tabs keep popping up. Does anyone know why this happens?
       
      EDIT: So I am not sure how reproducible this is, because it only happens every once in a while for me. I will update with more info if I find out anything.

      Go create a quick account in Zapier and go to https://zapier.com/app/dashboard and make some Zaps!
      Just need to click the specific instance of an .open-menu button and then click its a.run (anchor) element.
      Doing this IE.au3 script just causing to click its container element:
      $target = 1; Target the first instance #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach("Dashboard - Zapier") $count = 0; $tags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If $class_value = "open-menu" Then $count += 1 if $count = $target Then MsgBox(0, "Instance: ", $count) ; $tag.fireEvent("onmousedown") ; _IEAction($tag, "click") ; $tag.fireEvent("onmouseup") ; Or this but not working ; $tag.Click EndIf EndIf Next I also tried to do it using FF.au3
      $target = 1; Target the first instance #Include <Array.au3> #Include <FF.au3> $count = 0; If _FFConnect(Default, Default, 3000) Then $aArray = _FFXPath( "//div[@class='open-menu']", "", 7 ) ; _ArrayDisplay($aArray) For $tag in $aArray $count += 1 if $count = $target Then MsgBox(0, "Instance: ", $count) _FFClick($tag) EndIf Next EndIf Error: _FFClick ==> No match: $sElement: [number]
      Could some help me how to click such buttons on such kind of a dynamic page?
