Get Parent from childnode?

3 posts in this topic

Hey, i hope someone can point me in the right direction, i have a page with tables, inside i have TD,TR,INPUT tags, the input tags is buttons and i need to click on one of theese buttons but they have the same value and type so the only way that i am going to know that it's the correct button is to find out the name of the innerhtml of the TD before (the parent node) because the input comes after, like this

<TABLE>
<TR>
<TD> Name of the td </TD>
<TR>
<TD colSpan=3<INPUT> value=my button type=button</INPUT></TD>
<TR>
<TD> Other name of a td </TD>
<TR>
<TD colSpan=3<INPUT> value=my button type=button</INPUT></TD>
<TR>

I know how to find all td's and inputs but not (in a loop) look for the td's and once it has found it click on the corresponding or "closest" input, maybe a nested loop?

I made a for loop using _IETagnameGetCollection($ie,"TD") and after it found the TD i tried looking for nextSibling but that might be impossible with INPUT perhaps?

Thanx, sorry been away a while, solved it with a simple formsubmit instead after looking for some credentials in the form.

      I'm having a problem with _IEBodyReadText() which is a function from the IE.au3 UDF include.
      My problem is that randomly it will crash my script with:
      Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, $oObject.document.body.innerText) Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, $oObject.document.body^ ERROR I don't know why the error isn't caught by __IEErrorHandlerRegister but looking at this function, I can see that there is a check done by IsObj($oObject) to ensure that the object "$oObject" exists but no check that it contains the property "innerText"
      ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Author ........: Dale Hohm ; =============================================================================================================================== Func _IEBodyReadText(ByRef $oObject) If Not IsObj($oObject) Then __IEConsoleWriteError("Error", "_IEBodyReadText", "$_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType") Return SetError($_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType, 1, 0) EndIf If Not __IEIsObjType($oObject, "browserdom") Then __IEConsoleWriteError("Error", "_IEBodyReadText", "$_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType", "Expected document element") Return SetError($_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType, 1, 0) EndIf ; Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, $oObject.document.body.innerText) EndFunc ;==>_IEBodyReadText I'm struggling to find out how to test if "$oObject.document.body.innerText" exists before allowing the following Return statement to reference it with the assumption that it does exist (crashing my script when it doesn't).
      Any ideas please?

      Hello guys,
      I am trying to create autoit codes in order to determine if IE button was clicked or pressed.
      I am not sure if it is possible for IE button.
      Here is my initial code.
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstantsau #include <WinAPI.au3> AutoIt $searchTab = "Untitled 1 - Internet Explorer" WinActivate("Untitled 1 - Internet Explorer") Local $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1) For $i = 0 To 100 Send("^" & $i) Sleep(250) If Not(StringInStr(WinGetTitle("[ACTIVATE]", $searchTab) = 0) Then While 1 If $oGetItem = 1 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Attention!", "It's working!") EndIf WEnd ExitLoop EndIf Next

      Hello guys,
      I am new here in our forum. I do have a little knowledge about AutoIt. I hope you could assist me. 
      I am currently working on a project. I want to try to create an automated time tracking tool.
      This is how I want to function our time tracking tool.
      Start time when the IE "get" button  is clicked. End time when either "Next Step", "Save" or "Cancel" button is clicked. All the values in the available fields will be stored in an Excel I already have codes for the time tracking part, unfortunately, I cannot proceed since I am encountering an error for detecting the buttons in IE.
      Here is my initial code for detecting the IE button.
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("C:\Users\april\Documents\Logo\JRB\AutoIt\AutoBOT\AWD10\sampleAWD10.html") Local $oLastName = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oIE, "Text4") Local $oGetItem = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oIE, "getitem") _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEAction($oGetItem, "click") MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Form Element Value", _IEFormElementGetValue($oGetItem)) Here is the console output.

      Hello,
      I am currently trying to automatically click the "Yes" button in the ActiveX prompt/popup message after opening the IE (html).
      At 1st, I encounter the "Allow Blocked Content". I already resolve it just by changing settings in the IE Options. But after resolving the "Allow Blocked Content", there's a popup message appear.
      I have attached the ActiveX Prompt.
      Here is the 1st code that I try to use.
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> _IECreate("C:\Users\april\Documents\Logo\JRB\AutoIt\AutoBOT\AWD10\sampleAWD10.html",0,1,0) Local $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) AdlibRegister("_ActiveXRun",250) Local $oLastName = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "Text4") Local $oGetItem = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "getitem") _IEAction($oGetItem, "click") MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Form Element Value", _IEFormElementGetValue($oGetItem)) Func _ActiveXRun() $retWin = WinGetHandle("[Class:Button]","") $winTitle = "[HANDLE:" & $retWin &"]" $ctrlHandle = ControlGetHandle($winTitle,"", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]") $ctrlTitle = "HANDLE:" & $ctrlHandle &"]" WinWaitActive($ctrlTitle,"[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]",10) $k = ControlGetPos($winTitle, "","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]") $x = $k[0] $y = $k[1] WinActivate ($winTitle,"An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page.

      Hello all,
      Here's a cleaned up version of my code:
      #include <IE.au3>
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
      #include <Array.au3>
      #include <String.au3>
      ;#include <ErrorHandler.au3>
      ; Open Greatsite.com
      Global $oIE = _IECreate ("http://www.greatsite.com")
      ; I'm logged in and on the forum page.  Now to navigate categories with unknown names.
      ; Grab all links on page, then only dive into the ones with the text "forum_id="
      ; as in ?bview=forum&forum_id=108343
      Global $oLinksCategoryPage = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
      Local $iNumLinks = @extended
              ;Now at the thread level. Navigate into each thread and look at timestamp
              Global $oLinksOfThreads = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
              For $oLinkThread In $oLinksOfThreads
                  If StringInStr($oLinkThread.href,"thread_id") Then
                      _IENavigate($oIE, $oLinkThread.href)
                      ;Need to find instance of Posted and read text after the href.
                      Local $sBodyText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)
                      ;Find first instance of the word "Posted" and check the two words to the right of it.
                      Local $aArrayOfBodyText = _StringExplode($sBodyText," ",0)
                      ;_ArrayDisplay($aArrayOfBodyText, "The body text in Array form")
                      ;Local $iIndexOfPosted = _ArraySearch($aArrayOfBodyText,"days")
                      For $iIndex = 0 to ubound($aArrayOfBodyText) - 1
                          If StringInStr(StringLower($aArrayOfBodyText[$iIndex]), "posted") Then
                              ;The word Posted has been found. Look for "Just A moment ago", "minutes", and "minute"
                              Select
                                  Case StringLower($aArrayOfBodyText[$iIndex +1]) = "just"
                                      ;"Just a moment ago.  Grab this one.
                                  Case Stringlower($aArrayOfBodyText[$iIndex +2]) = "minute"
                                      ;"1 minute". Grab this one
                                  Case Stringlower($aArrayOfBodyText[$iIndex +2]) = "minutes"
                                      ;"x minutes. Grab this one
                              EndSelect
                              ;ExitLoop ;Found the first one.  I'm done.
                          EndIf
                      ;Need to back out to Threads in Category
                      Next
                      _IEAction($oIE,"back")
                  EndIf
              Next
              ;Back out to Category List
              _IEAction($oIE,"back")
          EndIf
      Next
      _IEQuit($oIE)
       
      The script works fine until I hit the Next to go back to the For $oLinkThread In $oLinksOfThreads.  Any line that I put after that crashes with an error.  It's like the For loop is going one too many iterations and there is no object in the variable.
      The requested action with this object has failed.:
      If StringInStr($oLinkThread.href,"thread_id") Then
      If StringInStr($oLinkThread^ ERROR
      Thanks,
      -John
