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")

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 am trying to script the opening of multiple tabs in IE with each tab having a separate login/password. I have been able to make a successful script that will open 3 separate IE sessions with the correct webpage and login or a script that will open 3 tabs in one session (which I want) but will not login. I have tried _IECreate, IEAttach etc. This is the script I am currently using . 
      #include <IE.au3> Const $navOpenInNewTab = 0x0800 Dim $oIE = _IECreate('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/AAAA/index.htm') ;$o_IE.Navigate2('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/apps/yyyyyyy/LogInSAG/login.asp', $navOpenInNewTab) ;$o_IE.Navigate2('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/apps/yyyyyyy/LogInSAG/login.asp', $navOpenInNewTab) Call ("YYYYYYYSignIn") Func YYYYYYYSignIn () Local $username = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"uname") Local $password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"pword") $oIE.Navigate2('http://asag.xxxxxxx.com/apps/xxxxxxx/LogInSAG/login.asp',2048) _IEFormElementSetValue ($username, "xxxxxxx") _IEFormElementSetValue ($password, "xxxxxxx") Send('{Enter}') EndFunc Call ("xxxxxxxSignIn") Func xxxxxxxSignIn () __IENavigate($oIE, "https://soa1gui.xxxxxxx.biz/gateway/NFServlet;jsessionid=1E3B8F6520DE0A1EC914A8ABB7E86341?NFH_MessageId=&NFH_Page=%2fpages%2fsearch%2fsearch.jsp", 1, 0x800) Local $domain = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"NF_CustomerID") Local $User_Name = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"NF_UserName") Local $Password = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE,"NF_Password") _IEFormElementSetValue ($domain, xxxxxxx") _IEFormElementSetValue ($User_Name, "xxxxxxx") _IEFormElementSetValue ($Password, "xxxxxxx") ;Send('{Enter}') EndFunc

      Internet Explorer 11, AutoIt 3.3.14.2
      I want to download many files which are published with hyperlink on a web page. I use AutoIt and when there is a few files, it works even if It's on a website with secured links.
      I have a script to download link items with the object method (I gave a partial sample), but when the number of link exceed the web page, there is not an auto scroll, then the links which are not on displayed without scroll are not downloaded.
      Thank you

      I have come across a weird issue that I am not sure how to solve. For some reason, whenever I call WinActivate in certain scenarios instead of opening the single window that already exists, it will create a new blank tab. It should be able to be recreated with this:
      AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) Sleep(1000) For $i=0 To 10 WinActivate("Internet Explorer") Next I am not actually doing this in my code, it is just to demonstrate the fact that new tabs keep popping up. Does anyone know why this happens?
       
      EDIT: So I am not sure how reproducible this is, because it only happens every once in a while for me. I will update with more info if I find out anything.
