failure with scriptControl object (my fault of course)

8 posts in this topic

Hi all.
I'm playing a bit with the ScriptControl object using as base this example by @genius257.

here is a very simple try, ... but it fails. what I'm doing wrong?

Local $oSC = ObjCreate("ScriptControl")
$oSC.Language = "JScript"

$oSC.ExecuteStatement('alert("I am a javascript alert box!");')

MsgBox(0,'AutoIt','Pause')

Thanks

Thanks @junkew,

AllowUI is now set to True but I got same result

Local $oSC = ObjCreate("ScriptControl")
$oSC.Language = "JScript"

$oSC.AllowUI = True
ConsoleWrite("Debug:" & @CRLF & "Language:" & @TAB & $oSC.Language & @CRLF & "AllowUI:" & @TAB & $oSC.AllowUI & @CRLF)

$oSC.ExecuteStatement('alert("I am a javascript alert box!");')

MsgBox(0,'AutoIt','Pause')

alert is not a function from javascript its a function from the internet explorer window object.
As such you cannot call a msgbox/alert function from JavaScript. Although I remember something as you host the control you can call an AutoIt function within the JScript you run.

examplevbs()
exampleJS()

MsgBox(0,'AutoIt','Pause')


func exampleJS()
    Local $oSC = ObjCreate("MSScriptControl.ScriptControl")
$oSC.Language = "JScript"

$oSC.AllowUI = True
ConsoleWrite("Debug:" & @CRLF & "Language:" & @TAB & $oSC.Language & @CRLF & "AllowUI:" & @TAB & $oSC.AllowUI & @CRLF)

;~ $oSC.ExecuteStatement("alert('I am a javascript alert box!');")
;~ $oSC.Run("alert('I am a javascript alert box!');")

$strCode= "alert(" & Chr(39) & "I am a javascript alert box!" & Chr(39) & ");"
ConsoleWrite("strCode:" & $strCode & @CRLF )
$oSC.ExecuteStatement("alert('I am a javascript alert box!');")


EndFunc

func exampleVBs()
    Local $oSC = ObjCreate("MSScriptControl.ScriptControl")
$oSC.Language = "VBScript"

$oSC.AllowUI = True
ConsoleWrite("Debug:" & @CRLF & "Language:" & @TAB & $oSC.Language & @CRLF & "AllowUI:" & @TAB & $oSC.AllowUI & @CRLF)

$strCode= "msgbox " & Chr(34) & "test" & Chr(34)
ConsoleWrite("strCode:" & $strCode & @CRLF )
 $oSC.ExecuteStatement($strCode)

$oSC.Run("alert('I am a javascript alert box!');")

EndFunc

 

Not sure what you want to achieve but following roads you could follow

1. mangle JScript with VBScript and AutoIT (with registering AutoIt as com on the fly https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/128627-access-autoit/)

2. Load ChakraCore engine (search ChakraCore in the forums)
https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/185996-chakra-native-javascript-runtime-jsrt

3. Embed JScript in a C# module and run it with help of CLR.AU3 examples (not done before I think but then you are less dependent on the MSScriptcontrol.

Hi, Chimp

Here is a way to use a msgbox or alert in jscript.

Local $oSC = ObjCreate("ScriptControl")
$oSC.Language = "JScript"

local $jcode = "function alert(iData,iTitle,iFlag,timeout){" & _
               "iTitle = iTitle || 'Info';" & _
               "iFlag = iFlag || 64;" & _
               "timeout = timeout || 0;" & _
               "return new ActiveXObject('WScript.Shell').Popup(iData,timeout,iTitle,iFlag);}"

$oSC.AddCode($jcode)

$oSC.ExecuteStatement("alert('I am a javascript alert box!')")

MsgBox(0,'AutoIt','Pause')

This runs on IE 11 win 7.

Hi @xroot, thanks for your "matrioska" script... (WScript within Jscript within AutoIt).
Funny example... :)
ThankYou

      An example on how to inject jQuery into a web page
      It can be useful to manage the page from AutoIt using jQuery.

      Hi there.
      Im having some kind of a coder block here, 
      <td class="treeview ctl00_CenterContent_objTreeView_2" style="white-space:nowrap;"> <input type="checkbox" name="ctl00_CenterContent_objTreeViewn1CheckBox" id="ctl00_CenterContent_objTreeViewn1CheckBox"> <span class="ctl00_CenterContent_objTreeView_0 treeview ctl00_CenterContent_objTreeView_1" id="ctl00_CenterContent_objTreeViewt1" style="border-style:none;font-size:1em;"> <i class="fa fa-file-code-o fa-fw"> </i> <span data-placement="bottom" data-toggle="tooltip" title="" data-original-title="Tool tip for said part">REFUNDS</span></span></td> this is a code directly from the website im working with. I was thinking of inserting a javascript that would get the "REFUNDS" part. Any ideas on how to do so?
      Any thoughts will be highly appreciated.

      Dear Colleagues,
      I have no idea how to refer to style.display in my loop. There is a button like: 
      <input name="ctl00$bodyPlaceholder$btnFecharProcessamento" class="button" id="bodyPlaceholder_btnFecharProcessamento" style="display: none;" onclick="FecharJanelaProcessamento();return false;" type="submit" value="Fechar"> I want it to be clicked as soon as button's style change from style="display: none;" to  style= ="display: inline-block;" 
      This is what I got, but it's not working...
      Func GetButtons() $oButtons = _IEGetObjByName($oForm,"ctl00$bodyPlaceholder$btnFecharProcessamento",-1) $i = 0 While $i <> 1 For $oBtn In $oButtons If _IEFormElementGetValue($oBtn) = "Fechar" And $oBtn.document.style.display = "display: inline-block;" Then $i = 1 _IEAction($oBtn, "focus") _IEAction($oBtn, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next WEnd EndFunc  
      I will really appreciate if you could help me with these loop!

      Hello!
      I'm new to the forums! Couldn't find any threads covering this issue. Sorry if I'm wrong.

      I'm having problems changing the text/value of a input box. The particular box doesn't have a name or id, just: class="jq_hotkeys_enabled form-control".
      This class appears multiple times throughout the source, so I don't think It's right to reference that object. 
      See image 1.
      However, I've managed to find a object with the name "ctl00$content$ctrl$ucServiceTime$rpServicetimes$ctl00$edtHiddenResourceHelper" which contains the value of the input box, and the id for the person in the dropdown/combobox left of it. (with "dummy-1" selected).
      See image 2.
      As you can see the value is 3982,4545     ( name , time )
      But when I try to change the value of it by doing:
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IEAttach(WinGetHandle("[CLASS:IEFrame]"),"embedded") Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "aspnetForm") Local $oInput = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "ctl00$content$ctrl$ucServiceTime$rpServicetimes$ctl00$edtHiddenResourceHelper") _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "3982,1337") The box doesn't get its new value. I  can see in the source that it's changed though.
      See image 3.
       
      However, if I do: 
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IEAttach(WinGetHandle("[CLASS:IEFrame]"),"embedded") Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "aspnetForm") Local $oInput = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "ctl00$content$ctrl$ucServiceTime$rpServicetimes$ctl00$edtHiddenResourceHelper") _IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "3982,1337") $oIE.document.parentwindow.execScript("theForm.submit()") ; But it needs to reload the page The box gets its new value after the page reloads by the theForm.submit() function. 
      This is a bit unfortunate as I want the changes to happen instantly like when I type in the box with the keyboard... or select in the combobox.
      Maybe someone knows how I can do this? Looking forward to an answer! 
      Thanks in advance.
       
      Note: Unfortunately I can't provide with the real URL as it is constricted to employees in the company I work for, but let me know If I should provide anything else.

      How can I check if element is focused in Firefox using FF.au3 UDF?
      This is my try:
      I have prepared a function that checks if the object is focused:
       
      _FFCmd('FFau3.isfocused=function isfocused(a){try{return (a === document.activeElement)}catch(e){return}}') $oElm = _FFXPath("//*[@id='someId']") ConsoleWrite(_FFIsFocused($oElm)) Func _FFIsFocused($sElement = "") Local $isFoc = _FFCmd("FFau3.isfocused(" & $sElement & ")") Return $isFoc EndFunc ;==>_FFIsFocused Now, the javascript part is tested and it does return successfully.
      After a lot of try/fails I inserted an alert box in order to display the object being compared.
      Here is what I got
       
      The focused object is: [object XULElement]
      The object that I send for comparing is [object HTMLInputElement]
      Why is that?
