use the _WD_ElementAction function like this: $sValue = _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'attribute', 'src') p.s. ... and remove @src from the xPath: "//img[@alt='NiceGirl']"

Time ago I wrote a function to extract data from  the source HTML code of tables. https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/167679-read-data-from-html-tables-from-raw-html-source/ Seems that that fun

Hi everyone , I have 1 web code

<img id="wlspispHIPBimg0b608e68c33294658a1503edc3d55e2eb0" aria-label="NiceGirl" alt="NiceGirl" src="https://kenh14cdn.com/2019/2/24/3561716420480213454575853861059020806684672n-15510057259571546306615.jpg" style="display: inline; width: 100%; height: auto; max-width: 200px;" class="text-body">

Now I want get the text "https://kenh14cdn.com/2019/2/24/3561716420480213454575853861059020806684672n-15510057259571546306615.jpg"

use the _WD_ElementAction function like this:

$sValue = _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'attribute', 'src')


... and remove @src from the xPath: "//img[@alt='NiceGirl']"

Hello Danp2, you mentioned _WD_ElementOptionSelect, but I am trying to select an item in an "ul" unordered list. Can you use this for that ... also you make a mention of you added _WD_ElementOptionSelect in wd_core.au3, but I don't see it in the file... no header description or anything...

@trangtrau We can't provide assistance without additional details. For starters, what is the website's URL?

ex: https://signup.live.com/signup?lcid=1 the language  follow base of pc seting or chrome setting. But i want it allway display english. I search google but don't know how to config webdriver:


My chrome_startup :

Func SetupChrome()
_WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe')
_WD_Option('Port', 9515)
_WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"')
$sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c":true, "binary":"' & StringReplace (@ScriptDir, "\", "/") & '/Chrome/App/Chrome-bin/chrome.exe"}}}}'


how to convert  the value lang form

options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()
options.add_experimental_option('prefs', {'intl.accept_languages': 'en,en_US'})
driver = webdriver.Chrome(chrome_options=options)

@trangtrau Could be wrong, but I believe add_experimental_option is specific to selenium. There's an example of setting the prefs option here. Suggest that you review that and then adapt your desiredCapabilities string to suit your needs.

thank you, It success with code  

Func SetupChrome()
_WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe')
_WD_Option('Port', 9515)
_WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"' )
$sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions":{"prefs": {"intl.accept_languages": "vi,vi_VI"},"w3c":true, "binary":"' & StringReplace (@ScriptDir, "\", "/") & '/Chrome/App/Chrome-bin/chrome.exe"}}}}'

Dear friends of modern technology😀

I run into a small problem with the webdriver udf: The URL bar remains selected after, when I navigate to a website for the first time (after Create Session)

Like this:  


$sSession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities)
   _WD_Navigate($sSession, "https://www.google.com/")

Has anyone got a good idea how to solve this? My idea was to refresh the page using _WD_Action or just perform a regular mouseclick on a random location. But I feel that there is a more attractive way to solve this? Thanks for help!

@_leo_ That isn't what I'm seeing with both Chrome and Firefox. Perhaps you can provide a more detailed description of your environment, ie --

  • Windows version
  • Webdriver UDF version
  • Browser name and version
  • etc

You could also post a simple, but complete script that we can run to observe the issue. Finally, you might want to explain why this is causing a problem for you. 😉

@Danp2 I am using windows 10, Google Chrome with Version 75.0.3770.142. and the latest UDF version.

I figured out that this is caused by "user-data-dir=userData", since it doesnt happen if I delete this part. Does anyone have an idea on how to have all the user data without the url bar getting highlighted?

#include "wd_core.au3"
   #include "wd_helper.au3"

   Global $sSession, $sSession2
   Global $sDesiredCapabilities


   $sSession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities)
   _WD_Navigate($sSession, "http://www.google.com")

   Func SetupChrome()
      _WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe')
      _WD_Option('Port', 9515)
      _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"')

      $sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c": true, "args":["start-maximized", "disable-infobars", "user-data-dir=userData"] }}}}'

And the reasons are: 1. I seem to get more "element not interactable" errors when the focus remains on the url. 2. It hurts my eyes 😅

      I am trying to change the settings of the print option to Save as PDF and its not changing the settings and clicking on the Save button at the bottom. Here is my script that I have written and the format is correct below. Chrome browser I'm using is 97.0 My script was working fine using Chrome 95.0\ Not sure why its not working now
      It finds the print-preview-app element but not the others.

      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)
