WebDriver UDF (W3C compliant version) - 06/04/2022


Recommended Posts

@NguyenLe Please define "turn off the display". I interpret that to mean that you turned off the computer monitor. However, it could also mean hiding the browser window like I mentioned here --

Which of these is the correct interpretation? Also, post some code showing the issue so that we can try it on our end.

Hello @Danp2 ,

It seems to have returned to normal after I restarted my computer
Thank you very much

Just released updated version on GH. I stuck with using the existing WinHTTP UDF for the following reasons --

  • The WinHTTP UDF is well defined and tested
  • It avoids all issues related to COM errors, alternative error handlers, etc
  • I'm not concerned about the differences in licensing
  • It was working fine in my testing

Look forward to your feedback / testing. :)

Do you want me to do a PullRequest for COM Error Handling ?

Today I have some spare time.

Did you anywhere on GitHub put link to this AutoIt Forum Support Topic  ?
Did you put this link also into core UDF ?

@Danp2 If I connect to a new tab and reconnect to the previous tab I can not get the text of the alert

My Code: 

_WD_Startup()
$sSession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities)
_WD_Navigate($sSession, 'http://google.com')
_WD_ExecuteScript($sSession, 'window.open()','{}')
$Handle = _WD_Window($sSession, 'handle', '')
;Sleep(500)
_WD_NewTab($sSession, True)
Sleep(500)
_WD_Window($sSession, 'Switch' ,'{"handle":"' & $Handle & '"}')
Sleep(500)
_WD_ExecuteScript($sSession, "alert('testing 123')")
Sleep(1000)
$aHandles = _WD_Window($sSession, 'handles', '')
$sTabHandle = $aHandles[UBound($aHandles) - 1]
_WD_Window($sSession, 'Switch', '{"handle":"' & $sTabHandle & '"}')
Sleep(1000)
_WD_Window($sSession, 'Switch' ,'{"handle":"' & $Handle & '"}')
Sleep(1000)
$Text = _WD_Alert($sSession, 'gettext')
_WD_Alert($sSession, 'accept')
MsgBox(0,'Test Alert Text',$Text)

I see a few issues  --

  1. This line is invalid
    $Handle = _WD_Window($sSession, 'handle', '')

    Change 'handle' to 'window' to retrieve the handle for the currently active window. 

  2.  Using Chrome, the alert disappears when you switch tabs. This occurs even when you manually change tabs. You can test this yourself by hitting F12 to bring up the developer console and manually issuing the call to Alert. This doesn't occur with Firefox.

P.S. Next time post the full console output. ;-)

@NguyenLe Yes, I see that from your post. But that's not how it behaves for me and not how it is designed to behave based upon the link I posted in #90 above.

What version of Chrome was you using? 32 or 64 bit? Anything else you can think of that would be affecting this (ie: Chrome setting or extension that would affect this)?

@NguyenLe Sorry, but you can't just post an image and expect us to know what has occurred. 

Also, I went to this site in Chrome and encountered the same delay in the site loading. This appears to be by design; it is the DDos protection from Cloudflare. Since this occurs in a standard browser session, you can't expect the behavior to be different when using the Web Driver. 

There are likely ways to deal with this. One thought would be to write a function that loops for a defined period, retrieving the site's text and watching for the existence or non-existence of a provided text phrase. This could be a good "helper" function. Now someone just needs to write it. :)

      I am trying to hit the Return key without having to use the Send keys. I have the following code and its not hitting the Return key. Am I missing something?
      ; Press Return $sAction = '{"actions":[{"type": "key", "id": "keyboard_1", "actions": [{"type": "keyDown", "value": "\uE006"},' ; Pause $sAction &= '{"type": "pause", "duration": 500},' ; Release Return $sAction &= '{"type": "keyUp", "value": "\uE006"}]}]}' _WD_Action($sSession, "actions", $sAction)

      I'm having an issue with my html paginated table. The script work as expected. It reads the html table and clicks on the Download button. However when it clicks on the next page its not iterating the items. instead it goes to the next URL from the spreadsheet and then iterates through the html table clicking the Download button and so on. Not sure why its doing that. I want it to click the next page and then continue iterating then after it has reached the end of the pagination go to the next url in the spreadsheet and repeat the process. Below is my script. Any help is appreciated 🙂
