_IEFormGetObjByName, cannot find $sName

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I am very new to AutoIt and scripting in general and have a question about IEFormGetObjByName. The help function says:
_IEFormGetObjByName ( ByRef $oObject, $sName [, $iIndex = 0] )
But how do I find what to enter for $sName? In the example below, it says that it can be found by viewing the HTML source. So I went to the google home page, clicked Ctrl U to view the source, and cant figure out how they determined that the $sName is 'gbqf'. Can someone explain this process to me? Thanks in advance!

; Get a reference to a specific form by name.  In this case, submit a query
; to the Google search engine.  Note that the names of the form and form
; elements can be found by viewing the page HTML source

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.google.com")
Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "gbqf")
Local $oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "q")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oQuery, "AutoIt IE.au3")
_IEFormSubmit($oForm)

If you use IE - you can use the developer tools. It helps you find the correct ID or element easy by just clicking on it.

I tend to use Chrome personally because it shows me the parent elements here are my steps:

Open: Google in Chrome
Click: Inside the Search field
Press: Ctrl+Shift+I

Or

Press F12 to go to the Developers console
Get the "name" (This is whats used in the $oQuery example)
Click: the Parent form element
Get the "name" (This is whats used in the $oForm note this can differ to the one in AutoIt help)

Here are some screenshots of the process

      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.

      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,

      Hi All,
      Below is an example of my code that will reproduce an issue I am having, all be it an issue that sometimes occurs and sometimes does not.
      #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> Call ("Project") Func Project() Local $WaitTime = 10000 ; Set the time between checks in miliseconds While 1 $hwnd = WinGetHandle("[active]") If Not @error Then ; Ensure 'WinGetHandle' worked. Local $WinClassName = _WinAPI_GetClassName($hwnd) If $WinClassName = "IEFrame" Then ; If the curent window is an IE exploere instance then... Local $Object = _IEAttach($hwnd, "embedded") If not @error Then Local $url = _IEPropertyGet($Object, 'locationurl') If not @error Then Local $Split = StringSplit($url, "/") If $Split[0] > 2 Then ; This stops an error if the array did not have enought rows e.g no url to display form row 3. If Not $Split[3] = "" Then ; Dont bother if no url e.g blank msgbox(0, "URL is:", $Split) EndIf EndIf EndIf EndIf EndIf EndIf Sleep($WaitTime) WEnd EndFunc The issue is from IE.au3 and the error message is attached.  I am able to reproduce it is I run the scrip, load an instance of IE, then navigate to a different page such as google or something.
       
      I have looked in the code for IE.au3 and it reference to a function “__IEControlGetObjFromHWND(ByRef $hWin)” however I am not using this function so am a little unsure why or how this error is being called or what I can do to stop it?
       
      Any advice / help would be gratefully appreciated.
      Thank you.
