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

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted


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 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]")

      I have a script that has to work on multiple resolutions but each resolution has slightly different co-ordinates due to automatic UI scaling. I have had to make separate files for each but would like to implement them all in one script. I have a similar program written for Java which uses else if statements to use different co-ordinates for each resolution after it has been detected. I'm not good with Java so I would like to implement this on AutoIt before later making a Java version.
      This is a snippet of the autoit code I have.
      ToolTip("1 - Search")
      MouseClick("Left", @DesktopWidth *0.823, @DesktopHeight *0.925, 1, 25)
      ToolTip("2 - Buy Now")
      MouseClick("Left", @DesktopWidth *0.83, @DesktopHeight *0.798, 1, 27)
      ToolTip("3 - OK")
      MouseClick("Left", @DesktopWidth *0.555, @DesktopHeight *0.596, 1, 15)
      ToolTip("4 - OK Clear Error")
      MouseClick("Left", @DesktopWidth *0.49, @DesktopHeight *0.597, 1, 30)
      ToolTip("5 - Back to Search")
      MouseClick("Left", @DesktopWidth *0.161, @DesktopHeight *0.108, 1, 15)
      This is a snippet of a java code I used.
      private static void goToSearch(double maxX, double maxY, Robot bot) throws InterruptedException {     int currentX = 0;     int currentY = 0;     if (maxX == 2650 && maxY == 1440) {         currentX = 734;         currentY = 1316;     } else if (maxX == 1920 && maxY == 1200) {         currentX = 551;         currentY = 1096;     } else if (maxX == 1920 && maxY == 1080) {         currentX = 551;         currentY = 1042;     } else if (maxX == 1680 && maxY == 1050) {         currentX = 482;         currentY = 959;     } else if (maxX == 1440 && maxY == 900) {         currentX = 413;         currentY = 822;     } else if (maxX == 1366 && maxY == 768) {         currentX = 392;         currentY = 741;     } else if (maxX == 1280 && maxY == 800) {         currentX = 367;         currentY = 731;

      I'm having a problem with _IEBodyReadText() which is a function from the IE.au3 UDF include.
      My problem is that randomly it will crash my script with:
      Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, $oObject.document.body.innerText) Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, $oObject.document.body^ ERROR I don't know why the error isn't caught by __IEErrorHandlerRegister but looking at this function, I can see that there is a check done by IsObj($oObject) to ensure that the object "$oObject" exists but no check that it contains the property "innerText"
      ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Author ........: Dale Hohm ; =============================================================================================================================== Func _IEBodyReadText(ByRef $oObject) If Not IsObj($oObject) Then __IEConsoleWriteError("Error", "_IEBodyReadText", "$_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType") Return SetError($_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType, 1, 0) EndIf If Not __IEIsObjType($oObject, "browserdom") Then __IEConsoleWriteError("Error", "_IEBodyReadText", "$_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType", "Expected document element") Return SetError($_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType, 1, 0) EndIf ; Return SetError($_IESTATUS_Success, 0, $oObject.document.body.innerText) EndFunc ;==>_IEBodyReadText I'm struggling to find out how to test if "$oObject.document.body.innerText" exists before allowing the following Return statement to reference it with the assumption that it does exist (crashing my script when it doesn't).
      Any ideas please?

      I used the window info tool to get what I've got below, but it just doesn't click the button. I run the script, nothing happens. 
      WinActivate("SELECTION") Sleep(200) ControlClick("SELECTION", "", "[CLASS:Button;INSTANCE:2]") i think maybe the autoit cannot detect the windows. So what i do:
      MouseClick( "", 503, 500) local $blanktitle = WinGetTitle("[ACTIVE]") If StringInStr($blanktitle, "SELECTION") Then msgbox("","", "got") WinActivate($blanktitle) ControlClick($blanktitle, "", "[CLASS:Button;INSTANCE:2]") Endif The script can detect the windows as the it is prompt "got" message. But it just doesn't click the button.
      Please help.
      Thanks for any help you can offer.

      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
