HI All,

First time poster. Ive been working on my script for 4 days now and have searched thru the forums and tried just about every thing.

Any way the website when I inspect the element looks like this

 

<select name="ctl00$cphContent$Services1$ReachMe1$b3$ddlDnd" id="ctl00_cphContent_Services1_ReachMe1_b3_ddlDnd" onchange="javascript:Anthem_FireCallBackEvent(this,event,'ctl00$cphContent$Services1$ReachMe1$b3$ddlDnd','',false,'','','',false,null,null,null,true,true);return false;" style="width:120px;">
  <option selected="selected" value=""></option>
  <option value="Add a Number">Add a Number</option>
  <option value="1234">1234</option>
  <option value="0421004xxx">0421 004 xxx</option>
 </select>

My full auto it script is below

#include <IE.au3>

Call ("signIn")
Call ("services")
Call ("reachme")
Call ("reachmefwd")
Call ("reachmenum")

Func signIn ()
Global $oIE = _IECreate ("https://my.engin.com.au")
WinWait("engin selfcare - Internet Explorer")
WinSetState("engin selfcare - Internet Explorer","",@SW_MAXIMIZE)
Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "ctl00$cphContent$Login1$b1$txtUsername")
Local $password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "ctl00$cphContent$Login1$b1$txtPassword")
Local $Submit = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "ctl00$cphContent$Login1$b1$btnLogin")


;~ WinWait("engin selfcare - Internet Explorer")
;~ WinSetState("engin selfcare - Internet Explorer","",@SW_MAXIMIZE)
_IEFormElementSetValue ($username, "1010xxxx")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($password, "xxxxxxx")
_IEAction ($Submit, "click")

EndFunc

Func services ()
   sleep(8000)
   Local $servicesbtn = _IEGetObjByID ($oIE, "ctl00_cphTopMenu_TopMenu1_btnServices")
   _IEAction ($servicesbtn, "click")
   EndFunc

Func reachme()
   sleep(6000)
   Local $reachmebtn = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "ctl00$cphContent$Services1$ServiceMenu1$btnReachMe")
   _IEAction ($reachmebtn, "click")
EndFunc

Func reachmefwd()
   sleep(4000)
   Local $reachmeradiobtn = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "ctl00_cphContent_Services1_ReachMe1_b3_btnForwardAll")
   _IEAction ($reachmeradiobtn, "click")
;~    _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oIE,1, "id=ctl00_cphContent_Services1_ReachMe1_b3_btnForwardAll", 1, "byIndex")
Endfunc

Func reachmenum()
   Local $reachmedrop = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "Anthem_ctl00_cphContent_Services1_ReachMe1_b3_ddlDnd__")
   Local $reachmedropSelect = _IETagNameGetCollection($reachmedrop, "Select", 0)
      $reachmedropSelect.focus
   _IEFormElementOptionSelect($reachmedropSelect, "0421004xxx", 1, "byVaule")
   sleep(2000)
Endfunc

Ive tried just about everything on this function reachmenum() so it probley just needs to be looked at with a fresh set of eyes. This is the only part in the script that doesn't work.

 

Func reachmenum()
   Local $reachmedrop = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "Anthem_ctl00_cphContent_Services1_ReachMe1_b3_ddlDnd__")
   Local $reachmedropSelect = _IETagNameGetCollection($reachmedrop, "Select", 0)
      $reachmedropSelect.focus
   _IEFormElementOptionSelect($reachmedropSelect, "0421004xxx", 1, "byVaule")
   sleep(2000)
Endfunc

Can you explain why you are doing this

   Local $reachmedrop = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "Anthem_ctl00_cphContent_Services1_ReachMe1_b3_ddlDnd__")
   Local $reachmedropSelect = _IETagNameGetCollection($reachmedrop, "Select", 0)

instead of retrieving the Select by ID?

   _IEFormElementOptionSelect($reachmedropSelect, "0421004xxx", 1, "byVaule")

Also, you've misspelled "byValue", so that could be why it's failing.

I originally tried it that way. But it failed. After the script would run it it seemed the issue was that it didnt even get focus of the drop down. Because if u manually mouse click on dropdown it goes blue. And when running the script it never gets focus, let alone selecting the correct value.

Does it work if you fix the "byVaule" issue?

After select in drop you must dispatch change event manualy.

DanP2: I changed the code to 

Func reachmenum()
   Local $reachmedrop = _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "Anthem_ctl00_cphContent_Services1_ReachMe1_b3_ddlDnd__")
   Local $reachmedropSelect = _IETagNameGetCollection($reachmedrop, "Select", 0)
      $reachmedropSelect.focus
   _IEFormElementOptionSelect($reachmedropSelect, "04210***", 1, "byValue")
   sleep(2000)
Endfunc

Still doesnt work

 

Inververs: Do you have an example of this?

Previously you gave a value of "0421004xxx". Which one is correct?

P.S. You have us at a disadvantage because you care the only one that can test the script. Therefore, we depend on you to provide enough details so that we can assist you. Stating "doesn't work" isn't really helpful in this scenario. ;)
