Clicking on a selected button causing its container element to be click


Recommended Posts

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?

You have to examine the underlying event code to be able to figure out how to trigger the menu. In this case, there's a single event on the main container that is used for each of the objects within that container. The event looks at the position of the click to determine which element to actually trigger.

Here's some code that will cause the menu to appear --

#Include <FF.au3>

If _FFConnect(Default, Default, 3000) Then
    _FFXPath( "//div[@class='open-menu']")

    If @error = $_FF_ERROR_Success Then
        $pos = _FFCmd('FFau3.xpath.getBoundingClientRect().x') + 1
        $cmd = "d=FFau3.WCD.createEvent('MouseEvent');d.initMouseEvent('click',true,true,window,0,0,0," & $pos & ",0,0,0,0,0,0,null);FFau3.xpath.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.dispatchEvent(d);"
        _FFCmd($cmd)
    EndIf
EndIf

It creates a click event with the proper positioning value and then passes it to the container element to be processed.

Thanks, it would be great if you can show a IE.au3 version of that 'cause that FF.au3 version is hard to understand, just for educational purpose..

Sorry, but your on your own there. :-)

Suggest that you search to forum for a solution. IIRC, there's a post by DaleHolm that addresses a similar issue.

Could try:

#RequireAdmin
#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("https://zapier.com/app/dashboard", 1)
$oDivs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div")
For $oDiv in $oDivs
    If $oDiv.ClassName = "open-menu" Then
        $hWnd = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hWnd")
        ControlClick($hWnd, "", "", "left", 1, _IEPropertyGet($oDiv, "browserx") + 2, _IEPropertyGet($oDiv, "browsery") + 2)
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

Can you give me another twick of that, that will click let say, the second button?

'Cause @Subz solution isn't that nice, will require you to activate the window before working..
And upon a quick testing, no @DaleHohm solution work and still, a ControlClick() .

      I am looking to create a script which refreshes/reads a webpage every few seconds. My goal is to see if the page has changed, then I will send myself a notification that the webpage has been updated.
       
      However, rather than downloading the entire webpage every single time, is there a way to check when the webpage last updated?
       
      If not, is there away to partially download/read html source until a specific tag is hit?
       
      Goal: I would like to increase my poll rate and not excessively waste data.

      But I miss something and the code not works as intendend.
      Please join and contribute, in solving this issue, as this will be handy for entire community.
      @mLipok
       
      btw.
      I think that this may be realated to ChrB() which I simply translate to StringToBinary()
      Especialy this :
      StringToBinary(Chr(0))) could be the main issue.
      But for now I'm tired and going to sleep.
      Hope maybe tomorrow somebody solve this issue.

      Am trying to automate injecting credential on the login form for all kind of Web application for IE. I know how to identify the form name by viewing the source code and using the method - _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name).
      I would like to know how to identify or get the form object for the web app where there is no form name tag for example below, for the is I have used - _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) to get the form object.
      My Question is does it work for all kind of application "_IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0)" how to identify Index value? is it always 0? is there any better solution?
      The final solution am looking for is find out form object, get the username, password field and inject credential and submit the form.
      How to find out index value? for the forms which does not have form name field.
      $login_form = _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}") OR This works fine if the form has form name. $login_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}")

      I have a web page which  has  somewhere from 90-100 records any time. So one has to scroll from from certain height to bottom using scroll bar on the right or using the down key. Is there any functionality to take a single screenshot and give .jpeg file.  Any previous links or direction will be very helpful for me

      The following code creates a IE blank window
      Local $oIE = _IECreate()  
      But when i use Navigate to the URL, it open the URL in Microsoft Edge instead if IE.
      _IENavigate($oIE,$url)  
      What should i do to navigate in IE.
      Complete code :
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <IE.au3> #Region TESTING Local $url = 'https://www.youtube.com' Local $oIE = _IECreate() _IENavigate($oIE,$url) #EndRegion Console Output
      IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_ClientDisconnected (-2147023174, Browser has been deleted prior to operation.)  
      I have searched the forums but did not find such kind of post.
      Other posts were describing How to use Edge using Web driver selenium.
       
      Edit: I am working in Windows10. Recently many changes have been done by Microsoft to IE and Microsoft Edge. (2020)
      Earlier in 2019 this was working fine.
