How to enter text into a HTML input field

Recommended Posts

I have previously used _IEFormElementGetObjByName and _IEFormElementSetValue to enter text into a search box on a form and then submit the form.

I am now trying to enter text into a search box which is not part of a form. 

Here is the HTML from the website that i'm trying to enter the data on and then submit the search.

<div class="row">
    <div class="form-group col-xs-12">
        <span id="FullWidthWithSubmenuContent_FullWidthContent_MainContent_AircraftRegistry_lblSearchText" for="input-search">Registreringsbeteckning</span>
        <div class="input-group col-xs-12">
            <span id="FullWidthWithSubmenuContent_FullWidthContent_MainContent_AircraftRegistry_preSearchText" class="input-group-addon">SE -</span>
            <input name="ctl00$FullWidthWithSubmenuContent$FullWidthContent$MainContent$AircraftRegistry$txtSearchText" type="text" value="DTH" id="FullWidthWithSubmenuContent_FullWidthContent_MainContent_AircraftRegistry_txtSearchText" class="form-control" />
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

<div class="row">
    <div class="form-group col-xs-12">
        <label class="sr-only" for="">Sök</label>
        <input type="submit" name="ctl00$FullWidthWithSubmenuContent$FullWidthContent$MainContent$AircraftRegistry$btnSearch" value="Sök" id="FullWidthWithSubmenuContent_FullWidthContent_MainContent_AircraftRegistry_btnSearch" class="btn btn-primary ladda-button" data-style="expand-right" />
    </div>
</div>

Many thanks in advance

cheers

Roger

      Hello Everyone,
      I am very green when it comes to AutoIT, I have recently started using it to automate a job that i perform using MS Excel and that is working great. Recently I have been faced with a challenge I which i need to copy a specific set of lines from one .txt file and past them, overwriting a specific set of lines in a different .txt file. I honestly have no clue how I can copy the specified lines and transfer them. What functions / commands could I use and how could I lay them out I AutoIT? Any and all help will be appreciated. 
      Thanks!

      I have a smartphone and I use it to access my email. However, when composing an email on it I have a problem. My list of phone contacts on the phone is very different from my list of email contacts in my Thunderbird desktop app.  I use my Gmail address book to store primarily phone contacts, and I use Thunderbird for my list of email contacts. I wanted a way to get my Thunderbird contact list onto my smartphone to be able to compose emails to addresses in that list. Here's my solution.
      I wrote a script to export my Thunderbird Personal Address Book to a csv file. It then reads that file and re-writes it with html wrappers around the data to make it into a nicely formatted web page. It then uploads the htm file to my website. On my smartphone, I created a shortcut to the file's URL and whenever I click it, I get the list displayed. Each contact shows name and email address along with a COPY button that will put the address into the clipboard. Then in my email client, I can easily paste that address into it. Alternatively, clicking on the actual email link will open a new message dialog in your email client with that address already entered.
      To use the app, all you need to do is use Thunderbird and have a webserver available. You'll need to download the FTPEX.AU3 file from this website and make a few changes to some constants around line 17 for FTP login info, etc.

      What would be the best way to grab the last digits of this <span>? One of the problems I know I am going to have is sometimes it will be 1 digit other times it might be 3. 

      I am trying to get the list of spans and I get this error.

       
      $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "span") $sTxt = "" For $oInput In $oInputs     $sTxt &= $oInput.Innertext & @CRLF Next MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Form Input Type", "Form: " & $oInput.form.name & @CRLF & @CRLF & "         Types :" & @CRLF & $sTxt)
