Get IE element by CSSSelector

Recommended Posts

ur

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?

Thanks @Danp2

I am able to click the button using a loop for reading the classname of all the buttons in the pages.

Even though it is not selecting the button directly as in Selenium, the current solution is satisfactory.

Func clickButtonWithClass($oIE,$sClass)
      $oFound = ""
      Local $oBtns = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "button")
      For $oBtn In $oBtns
          If String($oBtn.classname) = $sClass Then
           $oFound = $oBtn
         EndIf
      Next
      If IsObj($oFound) Then
         _IEAction ($oFound, "click")
         _IELoadWait ($oIE)
         MsgBox(16, "Success", "Button found with class name: "& $sClass &" and clicked",10)
      Else
         MsgBox(16,"Not found." , "Button not found with class name: "& $sClass,10)
      EndIf
EndFunc

But I am not able to get the page results when I tried from search toolbar on the top of page in this forum.

And also, is there anyway  to use XPath in AutoIT.?

I tried to search some pages but they are looping inside each element tag from body tag onwards, which is not working with below XPath.

driver.FindElement(By.XPath("(//button[@type='button'])[5]")).Click();

Any suggestions?

Another solution arises once you realize $oIE is an internetexplorer.application object. What does this mean? You can access the page as an object with $oIE.document. This lets you do most things javascript can do with almost the same syntax!

for instance:

; Get all elements in the page by class name
$oElement = $oIE.getElementsByClassName("whatever comes after the = in class=''")
; This returns an array object, so we set $oElement to that object specificly
$oElement = $oTemp(0)
; We can then set it's value or text directly
$oElement.value = 45 ; used mostly for inputs, your milage might vary
$oElement.text = some text ; The text that's between the > and < that people see (usually)
; We can make events, and send them to $oElement to trigger javascript

$oClickEvent = $oIE.document.createEvent('MouseEvents')
;Event types are 'mouseover', 'mousedown', 'mouseup', and 'click'
$oClickEvent.initEvent($action, true, true)
;Now that we have the event, we send it to the control we want
$node.dispatchEvent ($oClickEvent)

;or even other events

$oEvent = $oIE.document.createEvent('Events')
$oEvent.initEvent('submit', true, true)
$node.dispatchEvent ($oEvent)

Once you realize $oIE.document (or any element you get with the other _IE functions are all objects too!) you can start googling java script examples, and by just changing the variables from document or this to $oIE.document or $oElement you can get many of them to work!

      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

      WinActivate("MEDITECH - Internet Explorer") Sleep (500) $oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH") $oDiv1 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "sysmenu-searchbarbutton") _IEAction($oDiv1, "click") I am just trying to click the little magnifying glass, next to the gear button with no luck. I was hoping someone might have an idea why this is not working?

      I am trying to type a name in patient summary search box. How should I go about doing this. I am clearly not doing it right. (Attached Picture of HTML code.)
      This is what I have tried. I assume this is not working because it is not a form? 
      WinActivate("MEDITECH - Internet Explorer")       Sleep (500)    $oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH")    $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "systemMenu")    $oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "sysmenu-searchbarinput") _IEFormElementSetValue($oText, "Hey! This works!")

      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?
