Help: ControlClick/Send/MouseClick ActiveX Prompt/Popup Message Button

3 posts in this topic


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>

Local $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1)


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 ($winTitle,"An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page. Do you want to allow this interaction?")
ControlFocus($winTitle,"An ActiveX control on this page might be unsafe to interact with other parts of the page. Do you want to allow this interaction?","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]")
ControlClick($winTitle, "","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]","primary",1,$x,$y)
ControlSend($winTitle, "", "[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]", "{ENTER}", 0)


Here is the console output.

I also tried a simpler code.

include <IE.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Local $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1)

$k = ControlGetPos("[CLASS:#32770]", "","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]")
$x = $k[0]
$y = $k[1]

ControlClick("[CLASS:#32770]", "","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:2]","primary",1,$x,$y)

Local $oLastName = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "Text4")
Local $oGetItem = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "getitem")

_IEAction($oGetItem, "click")

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Form Element Value", _IEFormElementGetValue($oGetItem))

There's no error in the console output for the 2nd code I have tried.

And here is the Window Info for the ActiveX prompt.

      I have a problem trying to use _IEAttach to recover control after a Windows Explorer reset (e.g. on Windows 7), since all the 
      InternetExplorer.Application objects appear to be destroyed by this event. An example of this is when a PC has some kind of fault causing a pop-up error message "Windows Explorer has stopped working". I can simulate this event by using Windows Task Manager to end the Explorer.exe process then to file, new task (run...) Explorer.exe
      After this event, _IEAttach gives an @error of: 
      7 ($_IEStatus_NoMatch) - No Match
      However, using WinList() followed by WinGetText() I can recover the URL for an IE session that has lost its 
      InternetExplorer.Application object which could be used to _IECreate a new session (the $iTryAttach fails) and WinKill() the original session but the result is a if a refresh had been done (any form entries are lost) . Unfortunately form entries do not appear as text or hidden text to Windows so I'm looking for the best way to read the contents of an Internet Explorer screen (even if just text without structure). 
      When there is no InternetExplorer.Application object (because of some Windows fault) but still with an Internet Explorer session running, I tried to read its contents by a "Select All" & "Copy to Clipboard" but its form entries are blanked and combo boxes choices are all displayed with no way of finding out which ones were selected.
      Local $ClipBoardSave = _ClipBoard_GetData() ;not ClipGet() which is text only ClipPut("") ;Clear User's Clipboard Local $sText = "" Local $hWnd = WinActivate("Window Title", "") If IsHWnd($hWnd) Then Local $bStatusCtrlSend = ControlSend("Window Title", "", "", "^a^c") If $bStatusCtrlSend Then Local $bStatusCtrlClick = ControlClick("Window Title", "", "") If $bStatusCtrlClick Then $sText = ClipGet() _ClipBoard_SetData($ClipBoardSave) ;not ClipPut($ClipBoardSave) which is text only  
      Is  there a solution to this please?

      I am clicking on a button on to submit o form UI.
      Problem is, the code working on windows 10,7, server 2012 r2 but not on windows server 2008.
      I checked the IDs also on that OS, they didn't change.
      Even the ControlClick is returning the status as success only but button is not getting clicked.
      But controlsettext on other fields are working.
      ;$MartConfigWindow is window object ControlClick($MartConfigWindow, "", "[CLASS:WindowsForms10.BUTTON.app.0.378734a; INSTANCE:2]")
