Hi @jonson1986.

First of all, in your code you select the "select" element by id, then try to find "select" elements within it. This results in a empty HTML collection.

Also you cannot call focus/OptionSelect on a collection, even if it contained elements. You would need to use a For loop.

Finally here is your answer:

#include <IE.au3>
$site = "http://example.com/upload"
$oIE = _IECreate($site)
$oDownloadSamplesSelect = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "language")
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDownloadSamplesSelect, "French", 1, "byText")
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDownloadSamplesSelect, "2", 1, "byValue")

Thanks you so much.

But I've to tell you one thing, there is still some mistake in the code you shared with after implementing this code nothing happen IE not able to select French from the list and I use sleep command as well so IE can easily load the page before move further to select the option but no error but not outcome as well..

Could you please review the codes you shared and help me to make this possible. Thanks.

$oDownloadSamplesSelect = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "language")
_IEFormElementOptionSelect($oDownloadSamplesSelect, "French", 1, "byText")

jonson1986,

When you reply, please use the "Reply to this topic" button at the top of the thread or the "Reply to this topic" editor at the bottom rather than the "Quote" button - others know what they wrote and it just pads the thread unnecessarily.

Hmmm seems difficult without the original page to test on.

I'm guessing that some JavaScript changes some/the HTML on page load.

If the original element is still accessible after the JavaScript is done processing the DOM, the code with a modified selector will be the answer.

If not, you can:

  • modify the value with your own injected JavaScript, but that can be quite tricky.
  • trigger event(s) programmatically maybe with JavaScript if events more than the 'click' event is required.

It is annoying, but hard to avoid.

      I was wondering how I read data inside of a iframe. I would like to be able to click something inside a iframe. However, I can't even find the tag. 
      The id and name change all the time so I can't use those. 
      The code highlighted in blue is what I am trying to click. (second picture)
      Here is what I have tried.
      $target = "" $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName("div") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If string($class_value) = "s_92 altstyle s_93 s_94" Then $target = $tag ConsoleWrite("Tag Found " & $target.outerText&@CRLF) ExitLoop EndIf Next

      This is what I have tried. I assume this is not working because it is not a form?

      Just want to report a warning I get when using IE udf and running from F5 in scite

      -> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Warning from function internal function __IEIsObjType, Cannot register internal error handler, cannot trap COM errors (Use _IEErrorHandlerRegister() to register a user error handler)
      When I look at IE.au3 I see a comment that this function has been removed as there are no more fatal errors.

      I created a webpage using the IE udf. Great, but then I noticed I cannot do a ctrl-F to find something on the page. 
      If I save the page then bring that page up I can find things of course.
      Its trivial really, but is there way to get the ctrl-F to work when the page is generated without resorting to having to save?
