Can't click a button in IE

Recommended Posts

Dear Colleagues,


All I need is to click a button with "Close" value - the problem is that it shows up later in the middle of some processing (Actually it's a one button, first with "Cancel" text and then it changes to "Close")... I tried multiple functions without a good result.

Here is the code from the website (from view source):

<P align="center" style="padding: 5px;"><INPUT name="ctl00$bodyPlaceholder$btnCancelarProcessamento" class="button" id="bodyPlaceholder_btnCancelarProcessamento" onclick="CancelarProcessamento();return false;" type="submit" value="Cancel"> 
             <INPUT name="ctl00$bodyPlaceholder$btnFecharProcessamento" class="button" id="bodyPlaceholder_btnFecharProcessamento" onclick="FecharJanelaProcessamento();return false;" type="submit" value="Close"> 
        </P></DIV><SPAN class="error" id="lblError"></SPAN>         </DIV><BR>
<HR style="color: rgb(204, 204, 204);">

I have no problem with all of the  other buttons which are static on the page. Only with that one!

Here is my loop:

Global $oClose = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "ct100$bodyPlaceholder$btnFecharProcessamento")

Local $i = 0
While $i <> 1
If String($oClose.type) = "submit" And String($oClose.value) = "Close" Then  
$i =1
_IEAction ($oClose, "focus")
_IEAction ($oClose, "click")
Sleep ( 3000 )

This is the output I received by using _IETagNameAllGetCollection for "Cancel":

id: bodyPlaceholder_btnCancelarProcessamento
inner text:

And this for "Close":

id: bodyPlaceholder_btnFecharProcessamento
inner text:

So will this works? (Won't be able to check in few hours)

Local $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input")
For $oInput In $oInputs
    If $oInput.type = "submit" And $oInput.value == "Close" Then 
    _IEAction ($oInput, "click")

If the loop is correct... Could you please help me with putting it into the WHILE loop I posted before?


I will really appreciate your help!

Thank you in advance.

Just a quick look...

$oClose = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "ct100$bodyPlaceholder$btnFecharProcessamento")

should be in the loop... that way the name will change and you will get the correct results..


Hello @Valuater!


Could you please help me with constructing the loop? I am not sure how to put this into the loop... Thanks!
