Explorer 11 save file dialog - how to save ?

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

When I click a link to download a file in IE 11 the browser displays a small popup at the bottom of the page, asking to save/open/cancel. I can't figure out how to interact with that. It's not really a window. It's not really part of the HTML page either.

 

I found this code that cancel:

AdlibRegister("AutoCancel")

While 1
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Func AutoCancel()
    If WinActive("[Class:IEFrame]") Then
        Local $hIE = WinGetHandle("[Class:IEFrame]")
        Local $hCtrl = ControlGetHandle($hIE, "", "[ClassNN:DirectUIHWND1]")
        Local $aPos = ControlGetPos($hIE, "", $hCtrl)
        Local $aWinPos = WinGetPos($hIE)
        If ControlCommand($hIE, "", $hCtrl, "IsVisible") And $aPos[1] > .75 * $aWinPos[3] Then ; Check if the control is in the bottom 25% of the page.
            ControlClick($hIE, "", $hCtrl, "primary", 1, $aPos[2] - 70, $aPos[3] - 30)
            Sleep(500)
            ControlSend($hIE, "", $hCtrl, "{enter}")
        EndIf
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>AutoCancel

 

And all i want is change it to auto save the file.

Changing the location of the click like this:

ControlClick($hIE, "", $hCtrl, "primary", 1, $aPos[2] - 150, $aPos[3] - 30)

will automatically click save. This also opens up the download window unintentionally because the window stays open when you save the file. You'll have to do some more messing around with click locations or something to fix that part.

Check out the IUIAutomation thread. I can't recall the post number, but there is one the deals specifically with what you're trying to do.

This example is about javascript dialog but this is also the same case with FileOpen/FileSelector window , opened by IE.

OK so i found this code thats works fine on Win10:

;If you wait long enough then IE11 will automatically give focus to the Save As popup box
Sleep(5000)

    Local $hIE = WinGetHandle("[Class:IEFrame]")
    Local $hCtrl = ControlGetHandle($hIE, "", "[ClassNN:DirectUIHWND1]")

    If WinExists($hIE,"") Then
        WinActivate($hIE,"")
        ;ControlSend($hIE ,"",$hCtrl,"{F6}")          ; Gives focus to Open Button
        ;Sleep(500)
        ControlSend($hIE ,"",$hCtrl,"{TAB}")          ; Gives focus to Save Button
        Sleep(500)
        ControlSend($hIE ,"",$hCtrl,"{enter}")        ; Submit whatever control has focus
    EndIf

The problem is that over Win 7 this click on Open button instead of Save button, what do i need to change here ?

Oh... You are talking about this small window in the bootom of IE Window ?

EDIT:
I was thought that you are trying to automate Standalone   Open/Save Dialog which also may appear when you automate IE.

In your case just try to use shortcuts for example if there is button  "&Save" where ALT+S is shortcut then try this:

ControlSend($hIE ,"",$hCtrl,"!s")

So this is my code now:

;If you wait long enough then IE11 will automatically give focus to the Save As popup box
do
   Sleep(10)
Until ControlCommand("[Class:IEFrame]","","[ClassNN:DirectUIHWND1]","IsVisible", ""

    Local $hIE = WinGetHandle("[Class:IEFrame]")
    Local $hCtrl = ControlGetHandle($hIE, "", "[ClassNN:DirectUIHWND1]")

    If WinExists($hIE,"") Then
        WinActivate($hIE,"")
        ;ControlSend($hIE ,"",$hCtrl,"{F6}")          ; Gives focus to Open Button
        ;Sleep(500)
        ControlSend($hIE ,"",$hCtrl,"!s")          ; Gives focus to Save Button
        Sleep(500)
        ControlSend($hIE ,"",$hCtrl,"{enter}")        ; Submit whatever control has focus
    EndIf

 

And i got an error: Error parsing function call.

Did you forget how to paste code on the forum ?

 

As to your problem, check this:

Until ControlCommand("[Class:IEFrame]","","[ClassNN:DirectUIHWND1]","IsVisible", "" )
