Firefox With MozRepl Does Not Work With Multiple Lines of Text

4 posts in this topic

I have a script that sends multiple lines of text to a textbox using Firefox. I using _FFSetValue($sCellValue[7], "line one" & @CR & "line two", "id") from ff.au3. If it's a single line of text it works but MozRepl give the following error with multiple lines of text.

Error:  

__FFSend: try{FFau3.simulateEvent(window.content.top.document.getElementById('line one
line two'),'Event','change',13);}catch(e){'_FFCmd_Err';};

__FFWaitForRepl ==> Error return value: MozRepl ....>
__FFSend: ;
__FFRecv:
__FFSend: FFau3.WCD=window.content.top.document;

__FFWaitForRepl ==> Error return value: MozRepl ....>
__FFRecv: !!! SyntaxError: unterminated string literal

Details:


 [object HTMLDocument] - {mainForm: {...}, location: {...}, getElementsByName: function() {...}, getItems: function() {...}, open: function() {...}, close: function() {...}, write: function() {...}, ...}
!!! SyntaxError: unterminated string literal

Will MozRepl plugin for Firefox send multiple lines of text to a textbox?

Thanks for your help.

Please post a script that we can run to reproduce the issue. Be sure to use a public website that anyone can access.

Also, please provide additional info regarding your setup (ie: AutoIT version, FF.au3 version, etc).

I'm using the following...

AutoIt Version: v3.3.6.1
FF.au3 version: V0.6.0.1b-15
Firefox Version: 45.0.2
Excel Version: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013

My full script is reading text from a cell in an Excel file that has multiple lines of text.

For example:

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3

Each cell will vary in how many lines each has. Some will have 2 while others will have more.

In order to provide a script that gives the same error that I'm getting run the following script.

#include <FF.au3>
; trying to connect to a running FireFox with MozRepl on
If _FFConnect(Default, Default, 3000) Then

    Local $ET, $ETLS
    ; open a page
    _FFOpenURL("http://frankiecooper.com/contact/")
    Sleep(3000)

    $ET1 = "Example Text Line 1"
    $ET2 = "Example Text Line 2"
    $ET3 = "Example Text Line 3"

    $ETLS = $ET1 & @LF
    $ETLS &= $ET2 & @LF
    $ETLS &= $ET3
    MsgBox(0, "", $ETLS)

    _FFSetValue($ETLS , "fscf_field1_3", "id") ;

    ; disconnect from FireFox
    If _FFDisConnect() Then MsgBox(64, "", "Disconnected from FireFox!")
Else
    MsgBox(64, "", "Can't connect to FireFox!")
EndIf

 

Thanks for your help.

I'm not a big user of _FFSetValue. Here's how I would do it --

#include <FF.au3>
; trying to connect to a running FireFox with MozRepl on
If _FFConnect(Default, Default, 3000) Then

    Local $ET, $ETLS
    ; open a page
    _FFOpenURL("http://frankiecooper.com/contact/")
    Sleep(3000)

    $ET1 = "Example Text Line 1"
    $ET2 = "Example Text Line 2"
    $ET3 = "Example Text Line 3"

    Local $cField = 'fscf_field1_3'
    Local $NL = '\n'

    $ETLS = $ET1 & $NL
    $ETLS &= $ET2 & $NL
    $ETLS &= $ET3

    _FFXPath("//textarea[@id='" & $cField & "']")
    _FFCmd("FFau3.xpath.value='" & $ETLS & "'")

    ; disconnect from FireFox
    _FFDisConnect()
Else
    MsgBox(64, "", "Can't connect to FireFox!")
EndIf

      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?

      I want to pass "about:config" to firefox
      If i do ShellExecute ("firefox.exe","about:config"), i get new instance of firefox opening up which is bad because it makes changes to another profile instead of one that is currently running.
      Any ideas ?
