Basic help for filling upload form in browser

Recommended Posts

rudi

Hello,

usually I do Win automations, so I have no skills at all to handle HTML forms :-/

The script to catch and syntax check  the required information from Excel is done.

Now I'd like to automate the upload using this form, too:

 

http://flashcardsdeluxe.com/flashcards/Upload.aspx

  • What browser is easiest to do so? (IE, Chrome, FF)
  • The Values $DeckCode, $DeckName, $DeckDefinition shall go to their HTML form fields
  • finally "click" the button "upload flashcards"
<table width="70%" class="cssCenter" border="0">

        <tr>
        <td style="width: 1%">Deck&nbsp;Code</td>
        <td style="width: 100%"><input name="ctlDeckCode" type="text" id="ctlDeckCode" style="width:50%;" /> (no spaces allowed)</td>
        <td></td>
        </tr>
        
        <tr>
        <td style="width: 1%">Deck&nbsp;Name</td>
        <td style="width: 100%"><input name="ctlDeckName" type="text" id="ctlDeckName" style="width:50%;" /> (optional)</td>
        <td style="width: 1%" align="right"><input type="submit" name="ctlUpload" value="Upload Flashcards" id="ctlUpload" /></td>
        </tr>
            
        <tr>
        <td valign="top" style="padding-top: 5px" >Flashcard&nbsp;Text</td>
        <td colspan="2"><textarea name="ctlFlashcardText" rows="2" cols="20" id="ctlFlashcardText" style="height:280px;width:100%;"></textarea></td>
        </tr>
    </table>

If someone kindly could jump in showing how to address just one of the input fields and how to "click" the "upload flashcards" button, I should be able to do the rest myself.

TIA, Rudi.

Hello,

 

This code is opening the right web page, but does *NOT* fill the "form elements" as I would expect:

 

#include <ie.au3>

$URL="http://flashcardsdeluxe.com/flashcards/Upload.aspx"
$DeckCode="SpanischDeck01Basic"
$Deckname="Spanisch Deck01, Grundwortschatz"



$NameDeckCode="ctlDeckCode"
$NameDeckName="ctlDeckName"
$NameFCText="ctlFlashcardText"





$oFCUP=_IECreate($Url,0,1,1,1)
$FormElementDeckCode=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($oFCUP,$NameDeckCode)
_IEFormElementSetValue($FormElementDeckCode,$DeckCode)

$FormElementDeckName=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($oFCUP,$NameDeckName)
_IEFormElementSetValue($FormElementDeckName,$Deckname)

I've installed Autoit v3.3.14.2 and the latest Beta, to try to use IE_Builder2.0.1 (IE-library_v2.0.1.exe) -- hm. Looks like a really huge tool, but I'm too stupid to use it. :-//

 

Regards. Rudi.

Well, I'm pretty new to autoit, but you could try it like that : 

I think the problem with your code is, that you don't declare the form you want to fill. 

<form name="form1" method="post" action="Upload.aspx" id="form1">

This is the form, taken from the html of your homepage

 

Now you can try it like this (didn't test it) : 

 


 

$URL="http://flashcardsdeluxe.com/flashcards/Upload.aspx"

$DeckCode="SpanischDeck01Basic"

$Deckname="Spanisch Deck01, Grundwortschatz" 

$NameDeckCode="ctlDeckCode" 

$NameDeckName="ctlDeckName"

$NameFCText="ctlFlashcardText"





Do
    $oIE = _IECreate($Url,0,1,1,1)
Until IsObj($oIE)



   $oForm = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "form1")       ;you need this to declare the form you want to fill. the form ID is form1 as you can see in the html code


    $oCode = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, $NameDeckCode) 
    _IEFormElementSetValue($oCode, $DeckCode) 



    $oName = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, $NameDeckName) 
    _IEFormElementSetValue($oName, $Deckname) 

 

The problem with your code is here : 

 

$FormElementDeckCode=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($oFCUP,$NameDeckCode)

because you directly adress the IE instead of the form. 

 

I hope I could help.

Here a short (tested and working) example on how also click the button : 

 

#include <ie.au3>


;Declare Variables=============================================

$URL="http://flashcardsdeluxe.com/flashcards/Upload.aspx"

$DeckCode="SpanischDeck01Basic"

$Deckname="Spanisch Deck01, Grundwortschatz"

$NameDeckCode="ctlDeckCode"

$NameDeckName="ctlDeckName"

$NameFCText="ctlFlashcardText"

$FcText = "You can use a InputBox or GUI to fill this text"

;===============================================================




Do
    $oIE = _IECreate($Url,0,1,1,1)
Until IsObj($oIE)


_Fill_Name_Code() ;We call the Func


Func _Fill_Name_Code()

   $oForm = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "form1")       ;you need this to declare the form you want to fill. the form ID is form1 as you can see in the html code


    $oCode = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, $NameDeckCode)
    _IEFormElementSetValue($oCode, $DeckCode)



    $oName = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, $NameDeckName)
    _IEFormElementSetValue($oName, $Deckname)

    _Fill_Flashcard_Text()

EndFunc



Func _Fill_Flashcard_Text()

    $oForm = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "form1")

    $oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, $NameFCText)
    _IEFormElementSetValue($oText, $FcText)



    _Click_Upload()



EndFunc



Func _Click_Upload()

$oButtons = _IETagnameGetCollection($oIE, "input")
For $oButton in $oButtons
    If String($oButton.value) = "Upload Flashcards" Then
        _IEAction($oButton, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

EndFunc

Hi.

Thanks for your replies.

At a glance I didn't get everything, but I'm sure you've pointed me the right direction :D:D

On my way to get familiar with IE.AU3 ...

 

Regards, Rudi.

Let's say it like that :

 

Each website has it's forms in which the inputs etc. are. 

 

You've created an instance of IE with following code 

$oFCUP=_IECreate($Url,0,1,1,1)

And then you tried to fill the input for the Deck Code with this :

$FormElementDeckCode=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($oFCUP,$NameDeckCode)
_IEFormElementSetValue($FormElementDeckCode,$DeckCode)

You use the code _IEFormElementGetObjByName, so you want to get an FORM element. But you didn't declare the form, you tried to get the Form element straight out of the IE (as you can see at the first parameter, you used the variable for your IE instance there).

 

That's why it didn't work.

 

If you take a deeper look into my code you'll understand it

Yes, thanks.

I read your code several times, I think I got how it has to be done.

 

Have a nice day and thanks again :bye:

      I want to check some Excel data against data on a website in Chrome. I use Chrome because the site I use does not function properly in Internet Explorer or Firefox. I know how to do the Excel stuff I just can not figure out how to send to Chrome, let alone check to see if the data matches or not. I am also having trouble finding any help online while searching for Chrome functions for Autoit. I have a Chrome UDF installed but I still can not figure out how to get my code to properly function. (I am not posting code because I am  sure my code isn't right, to begin with)
      As usual, any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi,
      I have a situation where I need to make one request to get a kind of pre-logon page, then click a link on that pre-logon page, which then returns a login form page, and then fill in information in the form page and submit it.
      How can I handle that using AutoIT?
      I can get the AutoIT script to tab to the link, then send an ENTER, which then causes the FORM page to appear in IE.  However, I cannot seem to get the form object from the FORM page (_IEFormGetObjByName fails when it searches for the form).  Why is that, and how can I get the AutoIT to process the FORM page?
      Thanks,
      Jim

      All,
      I have decided to release my code for the automated clean install, set up and configuration of Mozilla Firefox with a Mozilla.cfg file included in my example as well. I seen an older version of this and decided to post mine on here. This is Windows 10 friendly.
      The whole process once compiled executes in about 15 seconds on my machine from start to finish as it is extremely fast.
      If you want to include your own Mozilla.cfg into the mix simply place Your Mozilla.cfg file in the same directory as the exe when it is run. If you do not wish to embed the Mozilla.cfg file into the script as a back up in case you forget you need to remove that line of code to embed it.
      I hope this helps some people esp those wanting to understand how to use a cfg file to set default settings for all users without having to do it by putting all those files and folders in the defaultapp data folders.

      $ieList = ProcessList("iexplore.exe") If IsArray($ieList) Then For $I = 1 To Ubound($ieList) -1 ProcessWaitClose($ieList[$I][1]) Next EndIf Exit Now on Windows 7 this bit works great.  On Windows Server 2012 R2 where this things runs is another story.  I need to be able to force close all instances of Internet explorer that are running as part of my code. 
       
      Any help is appreciated.
