Cannot click button in IE

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to click a button on a web page. I have added a couple of MsgBox lines to allow me to watch what happens on the page. As you can see the first half of my script enters data into text boxes on the page. I have no problem there. I just cannot click on the region buttons. The "set focus" line causes an outline to appear around the EU button and the "click button" line causes the "Pick a Region" text to disappear. Here is the code I have so far.

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://questchecker.com/")

Local $iQuestID = "123456"
Local $sCharacterName = "CharacterName"
Local $colForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE)
$iCount = 0
For $oForm In $colForms
    $oFormElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm)
    For $oFormElement In $oFormElements
        $iCount = $iCount + 1
        Local $sTagName = StringLower($oFormElement.tagName)
        Local $sElementType = $oFormElement.type
        Local $sElementName = $oFormElement.name
        Switch $iCount
            Case 6
                _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, "MyRealm", 0) ; realm
            Case 7
                _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, $sCharacterName, 0)
            Case 8
                _IEFormElementSetValue($oFormElement, $iQuestID, 0)
        EndSwitch
    Next
Next

Local $oButtons = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "questForm")
For $oButton In $oButtons
    If _IEFormElementGetValue($oButton) = "US" Then
        MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to set focus")
        _IEAction($oButton, "focus")
        MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to click button")
        _IEAction($oButton, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next
MsgBox(0, "", "Click Okay to quit")
_IEQuit($oIE)
Exit

First, not sure why you are performing the nested loops. You can simply use the regular _IE commands to retrieve the form and it's elements. That said, this is a tricky one because of the use of jQuery and an older version of YUI.

Here's the solution that I came up with --

Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://questchecker.com/")


Local $iQuestID = "123456"
Local $sCharacterName = "test"
Local $sRealm = "Area 52"

Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "questForm")

Local $jQuery = _jQuerify($oIE)
$jQuery(".us").click()
$jQuery(".us").addClass("yui-button-checked yui-radio-button-checked")

Local $oElement = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "realm")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oElement, $sRealm)
$oElement = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "name")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oElement, $sCharacterName)
$oElement = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "check")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oElement, $iQuestID)

$jQuery(".checkButton").trigger('click')


; #FUNCTION# ====================================================================================================================
; Name ..........: _jQuerify
; Description ...:
; Syntax ........: _jQuerify(Byref $oIE)
; Parameters ....: $oIE                 - Object variable of an InternetExplorer.Application.

Func _jQuerify(ByRef $oIE)

    Local $msie, $jsEval, $jQuery, $otherlib = False

    $msie = Execute('$oIE.document.documentMode')

    If ($msie = "") Or Number($msie) < 11 Then ; an IE version < 11
        ; create a reference to the javascript eval() function
        $oIE.document.parentWindow.setTimeout('window.eval = eval', 0)
        Do
            Sleep(250)
            $jsEval = Execute('$oIE.Document.parentwindow.eval')
        Until IsObj($jsEval)

    Else ; IE version > = 11
        ; create a reference to the javascript eval() function
        $oIE.document.parentWindow.setTimeout('document.head.eval = eval', 0)
        Do
            Sleep(250)
            $jsEval = Execute('$oIE.Document.head.eval')
        Until IsObj($jsEval)

    EndIf

    ; if jQuery is not already loaded then load it
    If $jsEval("typeof jQuery=='undefined'") Then

        ; check if the '$' (dollar) name is already in use by other library
        If $jsEval("typeof $=='function'") Then $otherlib = True

        Local $oScript = $oIE.document.createElement('script');
        $oScript.type = 'text/javascript'

        ; If you want to load jQuery from a disk file use the following statement
        ; where i.e. jquery-1.9.1.js is the file containing the jQuery source
        ; (or also use a string variable containing the whole jQuery listing)
;~ $oScript.TextContent = FileRead(@ScriptDir & "\jquery-1.9.1.js") ; <--- from a file

        ; If you want to download jQuery from the web use this statement
        $oScript.src = 'https://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js' ; <--- from an url


        $oIE.document.getElementsByTagName('head').item(0).appendChild($oScript)
        Do
            Sleep(250)
        Until $jsEval("typeof jQuery == 'function'")
    EndIf

    Do
        Sleep(250)
        $jQuery = $jsEval("jQuery")
    Until IsObj($jQuery)

    If $otherlib Then $jsEval('jQuery.noConflict();')

    Return $jQuery
EndFunc   ;==>_jQuerify

There may be a better way, so I welcome others input / feedback.

Thank you so very very much. I have spent a lot of time on this (days). I searched a lot and tried a lot.

My problem is that I do not have a good understanding. I am trying to learn.

I hope you do not feel that you simply did it for me because I will be studying what you did and learn from it!

      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
