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.

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.

      Hi, I'm trying to find a text value inside of a html.
      This is what the line looks like normally:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">TEXT HERE</span> </p> The text then changes to a non breaking space:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">&nbsp;</span> </p> And then it changes back to normal text but it's different every time.
      Can I code this so that it grabs the text every time it changes and has a variable that represents it?
      I currently have this inside of my loop:
      $span = .document.getElementsByTagName("span") For $text In $span If $text.value = "&nbsp;" Then Sleep(50) MsgBox(0,0,0) ;messagebox to test if it can be found, but I don't know how to grab the text EndIf Next The problem is that there are many other lines in the html that have the same span but are called "line3", "line5", etc and the one I need is from "line1".
      I will appreciate if anyone can help with this!

      I have kept below line to wait for IE to load the site completely and continue.
      _IELoadWait($oIE)
       
      But, the code is continuing without waiting for it and I my execution is failing as the elements are not loaded completely.

       
      Any suggestions for alternate code to wait for the browser to load completely?

      We can select elements in IE using their IDs as below.
      Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "x-auto-16-input") But to one button in the webpage, there is no ID to it.
      In selenium we have option to select this element using the CssSelector and clicked the button using below code in c# selenium.
      driver.FindElement(By.CssSelector("button.x-btn-text")).Click(); What is the alternative for this in AUtoIT?

      Good morning everyone
      I worked a bit on a little project of mine, and I managed to do what I was trying to do, or, automate a quiz in AutoIt.
      Now, everything works fine but, in order to achieve what I'm trying to achive, I'd like to make this script run faster.
      I'll attach a portion of the code in order to let you understand what my script does.
      $objIE_h1 = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "h1") ; Take the text of the answer If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura degli h1 nella pagina. - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else For $objElement In $objIE_h1 $strInnerText = $objElement.innerText Next Select Case StringInStr($strInnerText, "QUESTION") ; Here is the question ; PS4 PRO $objSpans = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "span") ; Answers are stored here For $objElement In $objSpans If $i >= 4 Then $strAnswer = $objElement.innerText ; Take the text of the answer n° 0, 1, 2, 3 If StringInStr($strAnswer, "CORRECT ANSWER") Then ; If I match the correct answer, then, I have to click on the input with answer id = answer_i $j = $i - 4 $objInput = _IEGetObjById($objIE, "answer_" & $j) If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura della risposta #" & $i & " - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else _IEAction($objInput, "click") If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante il click sull'elemento. - Errore: " & @error) Else ConsoleWrite($j & ") Risposta: " & $strAnswer & @CRLF) ExitLoop EndIf EndIf EndIf $i+=1 Else $i+=1 EndIf Next $i = 0 $j = 0 This is what my script does.
      Questions are 20, in which I have 15 multiple choice question, 2 images ( on which I use _IEImgClick() ), and 3 text inputs ( a simple send with the text I have to enter ).
      How can I make all of these, faster?
      If I reach this goal, I've probably done one of my best goals in life, and I'd like to share my happiness with you, giving a huge donation to this fantastic community!
      Thanks for your help
