Get IE element by CSSSelector

Recommended Posts

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!

      Is there probably a way to click ie popup button and hide or invisible popup button in the same time?
      I try to use WinSetState @SW_hide ,
      the result is ie crashing or no response because button hide and the next click command won't work...
      $oForm=_IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,"form1") $obutton=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm,"btn_OK") $hWnd = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd") _IEAction($obutton,"focus") ControlSend($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]", "{Enter}") WinWait("", "確定存檔嗎?") WinSetState("","確定存檔嗎?",@SW_Hide) ControlClick("", "確定存檔嗎?", "[CLASS:Button; TEXT:確定; Instance:1;]")

      Hey there!
      I am having a problem with clicking a button in IE. As you can see in the code, there would be a class name to click it, but since this button exists several times with exactly the same code, I can only use the "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" to separate it from the others. But this part is just pure text without any classification. 
      "<div class="checkmark" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" class="icon" viewBox="0 0 16 16" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><circle cx="8" cy="8" r="8" data-v-1e5b1f70="" /></svg></div>Noch nicht veröffentlicht"
      I was trying to click it with:
      #include <IE.au3> local $oNNVs = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE2) For $oNNV in $oNNVs If String($oNNV.innertext) = "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" Then _IEAction($oNNV, "click") EndIf Next and:
      $inputs = $oIE2.document.getElementsByTagName("div") For $input In $inputs If $input.innertext == "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" then $input.click() EndIf Next But nothing seems to work. Thanks for the help!

      Hello Everyone,
      I'm looking for a way to use an already open Internet Explorer (IE) window (if one is up and running) and then navigate to a new URL in a new IE tab.
      I thought that _IECreate would easily meet my needs. However, when I use the following script:
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://" & $Server & ":8444/", 1, 1, 0, 1) ...with one or more open IE windows, it still opens yet a new IE window.
      Are there any other ideas for how to reliably use an already open IE windows and then how to open a new tab in IE to navigate to a new URL?
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi All,
      I've tried to create a script to browse to a web page in IE, but it only works for some sites, I've tried to simplify the script as much as possible, hoping you can point me in the right direction - thanks.
      This one going to Google does work:
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.google.com.au/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) But this one going to OneDrive opens the IE page, but fails immediately returning the errors, and the IE window is not closed:
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_ClientDisconnected (-2147023174, Browser has been deleted prior to operation.)
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType ()
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IEQuit, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://abccorp-my.sharepoint.com/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) Even if I put a sleep timer in for 10 seconds after the _IECreate it still doesn't work
      Thanks all!

      On that page is a login form requiring username, password and then the clicking of the button (or pressing enter but I'm not a fan of using Send)
      Here's the section of code from the page that specifically deals with the form...
      <form> <div class="error-message-login" data-test="error-message"></div> <label> <span>User email</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="email" type="text" placeholder="Your email"> </div> </label> <label> <span>Password</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="password" type="password" placeholder="Password"> </div> </label> <button class="ui primary button" role="button" data-test="login">Login</button> <p> <a class="forgot-your-password" href="https://www.rightmove.co.uk/forgottenPasswordForm.html">Forgot your password?</a> </p> </form> Specifically the <button class...></button> is causing me problems as I can't find a way to click it. The 'User email' and 'Password' objects have an 'id' so I can reference these in the AutoIT code and interact with them and the button also previously had the id of 'login' but I guess in a change to this page that was altered.
      Oddly, if I get the code to show the instance of IE that is created and manually click Login or press Enter the page gives me an error saying 'Please enter your email address' even though it is there. I have to manually go into each field and make a change i.e. adding a character to the end of each field then deleting it before it will let me in by either clicking Login or pressing enter. So maybe there's so code elsewhere on the page that knows the fields haven't been physically typed in?
      Any help on this would be much appreciated.
