How to click a link/button in a HTML5 container?

Recommended Posts

As the title says. I open IE11 and navigate to a page with the following HTML5 file upload container in Capture0.JPG

I want to click Add Files but I haven't been able to. Here's the code that handles the Add Files button in Capture.JPG

_IEGetObjectById and then using _IEAction to click it doesn't work. I can't give access to the actual page unfortunately because it's password protected.

All suggestions welcome.

I'm hoping to resurrect this thread now that I can link directly to the page that I'm trying to interact with.

Here is the page http://mmmortgages.co.uk/axsdb/upload.php

I would like to be able to upload a file using AutoIt. My current solution involves moving the mouse pointer to certain coordinates and sending a left mouse button click. It works but it's crude and I would like a solution that can select the two buttons programmatically.

If you're kind enough to try and help me with this, please only upload small files when testing your code.

I understand using jQuerify could provide a solution but I have zero experience with jQuery.

The button works as I would expect (file dialog box appears after clicking). What exactly isn't working as you would expect?

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://www.mmmortgages.co.uk/axsdb/upload.php", 1)

$oAddFiles = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "html5_uploader_browse")

; Either of the following worked for me
;$oAddFiles.click()
_IEAction($oAddFiles, "click")

Thanks Danp2. For some reason on my system if I create the IE instance and then navigate to that page it doesn't work, but if I create the IE instance directly at that page it does work.

Hmm - but now the following code that was working perfectly after using MouseMove MouseClick no longer works

WinWait("Choose File to Upload")
$hChoose = WinGetHandle("Choose File to Upload")
Sleep(1000)
ControlSetText($hChoose, "", "Edit1", "C:\ProgramData\IRESS\TrigoldProspector\Main.DLT")
Sleep(1000)
Send("{ENTER}")
Sleep(1000)

Nothing is written into the File name field of the dialog box. Any idea why?

It seems the _IEAction($Object, "click") and $Object.click() leave IE hanging and the rest of the code never executes. This would seem like a UDF/AutoIt bug to me.

I'm using version 3.3.14.3

Thanks Danp2.

For anyone else who stumbles across this thread; certain actions carried out in AutoIt cause the script to hang, meaning the remainder of the script won't execute until whatever is causing the hang is dealt with, usually by user interaction (e.g. clicking 'ok') which defeats the purpose of a script to automate a task.

To overcome this a second script can be called to take care of whatever the first script is waiting for. This is the solution I used and it works perfectly.

      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.
