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!

      I have a web page which  has  somewhere from 90-100 records any time. So one has to scroll from from certain height to bottom using scroll bar on the right or using the down key. Is there any functionality to take a single screenshot and give .jpeg file.  Any previous links or direction will be very helpful for me

      The following code creates a IE blank window
      Local $oIE = _IECreate()  
      But when i use Navigate to the URL, it open the URL in Microsoft Edge instead if IE.
      _IENavigate($oIE,$url)  
      What should i do to navigate in IE.
      Complete code :
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <IE.au3> #Region TESTING Local $url = 'https://www.youtube.com' Local $oIE = _IECreate() _IENavigate($oIE,$url) #EndRegion Console Output
      IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_ClientDisconnected (-2147023174, Browser has been deleted prior to operation.)  
      I have searched the forums but did not find such kind of post.
      Other posts were describing How to use Edge using Web driver selenium.
       
      Edit: I am working in Windows10. Recently many changes have been done by Microsoft to IE and Microsoft Edge. (2020)
      Earlier in 2019 this was working fine.

      I'm trying to create script that would login on my SAP WEBI "web page" and replace some uploaded excel files. But i'm having problem on even the log in.
      These are user fill elements with Firefox Inspector
      <input type="text" id="_id0:logon:CMS" name="_id0:logon:CMS"> <input type="text" id="_id0:logon:USERNAME" name="_id0:logon:USERNAME"> <input type="password" id="_id0:logon:PASSWORD" name="_id0:logon:PASSWORD"> LogOnButton
      <input type="submit" id="_id0:logon:logonButton" value="Log On" class="logonButtonNoHover logon_button_no_hover" onmouseover="this.className = 'logonButtonHover logon_button_hover';" onmouseout="this.className = 'logonButtonNoHover logon_button_no_hover';">  
       
      My example, I tried _IEGetObjByName and _IEGetObjById but the script only open page but will not even fill out the form
        #include <IE.au3> Call("signIn") Func signIn() Global $oIE = _IECreate("http://192.xxx.xxx.xx:xxx/BOE/BI") Sleep (5000) Local $server = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "_id0:logon:CMS") Local $username = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "_id0:logon:USERNAME") Local $password = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "_id0:logon:PASSWORD") Local $button = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "_id0:logon:logonButton") _IEFormElementSetValue($server, "TestServer:1000") _IEFormElementSetValue($username, "MyUserName") _IEFormElementSetValue($password, "MyPass") ; THIS PART ABOUT BUTTON CLICK I DONT UNDERSTAND AT ALL $sSelector = "body > div:nth-of-type(2) > div > div:nth-of-type(3) > div > table > tbody > tr > td > table > tbody > tr > td > table > tbody > tr:nth-of-type(1) > td > div > div:nth-of-type(1) > form > div:nth-of-type(5) > button" $signInUC = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sSelector) _IEAction($signInUC, "click") EndFunc ;==>signIn

      Hello ,

      A website I am trying to login with my credentials.
      And retrieve the cookie into a text file.
      Unable to do so.
      Is it that certain,  Httponly , type - are not allowed to be fetched.

      Then further ,
      I will be checking every 5 minutes if my session is active , else re-login and re-fetch the cookie.
      For the second part , I will probably fetch some table and see if not in appropriate format do Part 1 : Fetch Cookie - again.
      Any better way , tips would be appreciated.
       
      Thanks

      Hello! Thanks you for looking at my post
      **No source code I'm sorry work related can't copy information**
      I've been using autoit for about 1 year. 
      I'm having trouble automating a click on an internet explorer web page and I've tried a lot of examples from help pages and forums already. The object I'm trying to click on isnt always in the same spot so I can't use mouse click or control click, I have tried to use the different get collection options and clickbyname, or index or get object. I'm just struggling. 
      Description of object I'm trying to click -- 
      HTML Code looks like <a ng-click.. "Click Here" it appears it's just a click able object named "click here" that opens a hidden window by running a script inside the web page. I'm not able to grab the information from the window unless it's open so I have to automate this click somehow. 
       
      I understand it's difficult to assist without having something to look at, I apologize for that sincerely and appreciate and assistance and suggestions.
