_IELoadWait not working

I have kept below line to wait for IE to load the site completely and continue.



But, the code is continuing without waiting for it and I my execution is failing as the elements are not loaded completely.



Any suggestions for alternate code to wait for the browser to load completely?

How about a runnable reproducer to show the issue?

It is from local server page... 

So I think we can't replicate the complete environment here.

But here is the part of code.


#include <IE.au3>

#include <Date.au3>
#include <file.au3>

Global $IE,$sBaseURL, $oIE, $mart_IE_user, $mart_IE_password, $mart_IE_email
$IE = ""
$sBaseURL = "http://localhost:18170/"


Func initIE($luser = "uday", $lpassword = "password" , $lemail = "robot@test.com")
   $mart_IE_user = $luser
   $mart_IE_password = $lpassword
   $mart_IE_email = $lemail

   $IE = _IECreate("http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?")
   $oIE = _IEAttach ("", "instance",1);selects ie first instance opened.

   Logging("Completed executing Mart Login and delete process through IE.")
   if _IEQuit($oIE) = 1 then
      Logging("exited IE browser..")
      Logging("unable to exit IE browser..")
Func gotoMartPage($page = $sBaseURL & "MartAdmin")
   _IENavigate ($oIE, $page)
   _IELoadWait ($oIE)
   Logging("Completed gotoMartPage with page : "&$page)

Func processMart()
   $title = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "title")
   if not StringCompare($title,"erwin Mart Administrator")=0 then
      ;MsgBox(0,"Page not loaded with heading: ","erwin Mart Administrator")
      Logging("Error: Page Not loading with Heading - erwin Mart Administrator");-------Coming to this line------
      ;--REmaining part----

Func Logging($sMessage,$sLogFile=@ScriptDir&"\Logging.log")
    If $sMessage = "" Then
        FileWriteLine($sLogFile, "")
        FileWrite($sLogFile,_NowCalc() & " :: " & $sMessage&@CRLF)

Logging("Error: Page Not loading with Heading - erwin Mart Administrator");-------Coming to this line------

Just guessing, but the site is probably loading some dynamic content even after the browser thinks the page has finished loading. One way to deal with this is to continuously loop until a designated element is found. Here's a prior thread where this technique is discussed.

      Hi, I'm trying to find a text value inside of a html.
      This is what the line looks like normally:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">TEXT HERE</span> </p> The text then changes to a non breaking space:
      <p id="line1" class> <span class="bot">&nbsp;</span> </p> And then it changes back to normal text but it's different every time.
      Can I code this so that it grabs the text every time it changes and has a variable that represents it?
      I currently have this inside of my loop:
      $span = .document.getElementsByTagName("span") For $text In $span If $text.value = "&nbsp;" Then Sleep(50) MsgBox(0,0,0) ;messagebox to test if it can be found, but I don't know how to grab the text EndIf Next The problem is that there are many other lines in the html that have the same span but are called "line3", "line5", etc and the one I need is from "line1".
      I will appreciate if anyone can help with this!

      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?

      Good morning everyone
      I worked a bit on a little project of mine, and I managed to do what I was trying to do, or, automate a quiz in AutoIt.
      Now, everything works fine but, in order to achieve what I'm trying to achive, I'd like to make this script run faster.
      I'll attach a portion of the code in order to let you understand what my script does.
      $objIE_h1 = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "h1") ; Take the text of the answer If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura degli h1 nella pagina. - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else For $objElement In $objIE_h1 $strInnerText = $objElement.innerText Next Select Case StringInStr($strInnerText, "QUESTION") ; Here is the question ; PS4 PRO $objSpans = _IETagNameGetCollection($objIE, "span") ; Answers are stored here For $objElement In $objSpans If $i >= 4 Then $strAnswer = $objElement.innerText ; Take the text of the answer n° 0, 1, 2, 3 If StringInStr($strAnswer, "CORRECT ANSWER") Then ; If I match the correct answer, then, I have to click on the input with answer id = answer_i $j = $i - 4 $objInput = _IEGetObjById($objIE, "answer_" & $j) If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante la lettura della risposta #" & $i & " - Errore: " & @error & @CRLF) Else _IEAction($objInput, "click") If @error Then ConsoleWrite("Errore durante il click sull'elemento. - Errore: " & @error) Else ConsoleWrite($j & ") Risposta: " & $strAnswer & @CRLF) ExitLoop EndIf EndIf EndIf $i+=1 Else $i+=1 EndIf Next $i = 0 $j = 0 This is what my script does.
      Questions are 20, in which I have 15 multiple choice question, 2 images ( on which I use _IEImgClick() ), and 3 text inputs ( a simple send with the text I have to enter ).
      How can I make all of these, faster?
      If I reach this goal, I've probably done one of my best goals in life, and I'd like to share my happiness with you, giving a huge donation to this fantastic community!
      Thanks for your help

      Dear Colleagues,
      I have no idea how to refer to style.display in my loop. There is a button like: 
      <input name="ctl00$bodyPlaceholder$btnFecharProcessamento" class="button" id="bodyPlaceholder_btnFecharProcessamento" style="display: none;" onclick="FecharJanelaProcessamento();return false;" type="submit" value="Fechar"> I want it to be clicked as soon as button's style change from style="display: none;" to  style= ="display: inline-block;" 
      This is what I got, but it's not working...
      Func GetButtons() $oButtons = _IEGetObjByName($oForm,"ctl00$bodyPlaceholder$btnFecharProcessamento",-1) $i = 0 While $i <> 1 For $oBtn In $oButtons If _IEFormElementGetValue($oBtn) = "Fechar" And $oBtn.document.style.display = "display: inline-block;" Then $i = 1 _IEAction($oBtn, "focus") _IEAction($oBtn, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next WEnd EndFunc  
      I will really appreciate if you could help me with these loop!
