Get a name or ID by the last 3 characters in Internet Explorer [Solved]

Recommended Posts

I am trying to grab the id "in2xk_26" however it the characters before the underscore always change. (in the name too)

Is there a way I can find a id or name by the last 3 charcters?

Using something like "stringright?"

So I would want to search for just "_26" in this case.

This is assuming that there are no other _26

 

example.PNG.0ef042f8df6f6a0a24da82fa8dd254ae.PNG

#include <Excel.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Global $iMousespeed = 25,$target = "",$TagName = "",$Value = "",$Atrribute = ""



$oIE = _IEAttach("MEDITECH")

$TagName = "input"
$Value = "in2xk_26"
$Attribute = "id"


$tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName($TagName) ;TagName  ------ MAKE SURE TO NAME THESE
For $tag in $tags
$class_value = $tag.GetAttribute($Attribute)    ;Attribute ------ MAKE SURE TO NAME THESE
If string($class_value) = $Value Then           ;Value  ------ MAKE SURE TO NAME THESE
    $target = $tag

      $iScreenX = _IEPropertyGet($target, "screenx")
      $iScreenY = _IEPropertyGet($target, "screeny")
      $iWidth   = _IEPropertyGet($target, "width")
      $iHeight  = _IEPropertyGet($target, "height")

      $oMouseCords = MouseMove($iScreenX + $iWidth / 2, $iScreenY + $iHeight / 2, $iMousespeed)

      MouseClick($MOUSE_CLICK_LEFT)

    ExitLoop

EndIf
Next

You will need to grab all and loop through to find your specific one.   if you can create an xpath, you can use my signature to do the loops for you.

To be honest, I have no idea what a xpath is. I might have to find a diffrent way.

I believe this would be my xpath? However, the Id and name are always changing so I am not sure how this would work???

Ah, dynamic.  won't work for that.  try going up a level and look for something static.  or something from a sibling node

would it work if I grabed the line I marked with an arrow?

what the picture is showing is two diffrent collumns.

That td is also only displaying dynamic data.  do any of the other td nodes have text?

Maybe a screenshot of the actual rendered table.

 

You are on the right track.   when you can find the right tr, you can dig intoit's child nodes to get the proper cell

I am not seeing any. Hopefully this screenshot sheds some light.

So, if you are looking for the first name input, you can find the label next to it by the innertext firstname....then .getparent, and get the childnode for the input....or use .nextsibling

Couldn't such a simple workaround be used ?

$var = "_26"

; $sHTML = '<input name="in2xk_92" class="navitem s_147" id="in2xk_26" style="..." etc>'
$sHTML = _IEDocReadHTML($oIE)
$id = StringRegExpReplace($sHTML, '(?s).*?id="(\w+' & $var & ').*', "$1")
; Msgbox(0,"", $id)
$oInput = _IEGetObjById($oIE, $id)
; etc

       Hi Guys,
      Could you please try out my script on win10 machine (simple site scrape)? One of my users complains it doesnt work on his win10, but it works fine on my win7. The error he gets is on the .FireEvent call. I think it is admin rights or IE / Edge issue, but don't have win10 to test it out.
      Thanks in advance.

      I have a goofy problem. I am hoping someone could shed some light. The example is not going around the text box. It is way off. 
      I have seen some post blaming IE 11, however I have IE11 on my desktop and it works fine.
      Is there anything I can do that might fix this?

      Hello,
      I try to get all the text from a news site around a subject.
      The first run I get all the text inside a attribute in an array.
      When i try to go back and reload another page it chrashes and think it because "$oIE.GoBack"
      I couldn't find anything in the help/forum around this subject.
      Do I need to reload the $oIE or something afther an X.GoBack?
      The error i got is :
      if $oTag2.GetAttribute("class") == "NewsDetail" Then if $oTag2^ ERROR I'm not shure why I got this error, maybe someone could explain?
      Also I'm open for some pointers in this test script because I'm pretty new in working whit the IE.UDF
      Maybe there is an simpler way to get the same results?

      test script:
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate") Global $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.iex.nl/Zoeken/Nieuws.aspx?q=air%20france") ;get first subject Global $oLink1 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "ctl00_ctl00_Content_LeftContent_NewsSearch_repNews_ctl00_linkNews") Sleep(500) _IEAction($oLink1, "click") Sleep(500) Global $oTags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") Global $aResults[1] For $oTag In $oTags if $oTag.GetAttribute("class") == "NewsDetail" Then _ArrayAdd($aResults, $oTag.innerTEXT) EndIf Next $aResults[0] = UBound($aResults) - 1 _ArrayDisplay($aResults, "Episodelist") ConsoleWrite($aResults[1] & @CRLF) $oIE.GoBack ;get second subject Global $oLink2 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "ctl00_ctl00_Content_LeftContent_NewsSearch_repNews_ctl01_linkNews") Sleep(500) _IEAction($oLink2, "click") Sleep(500) Local $oTags2 = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") Local $aResults2[1] For $oTag2 In $oTags2 if $oTag2.GetAttribute("class") == "NewsDetail" Then _ArrayAdd($aResults2, $oTag2.innerTEXT) EndIf Next $aResults2[0] = UBound($aResults2) - 1 ConsoleWrite($aResults2[1] & @CRLF) Func Terminate() _IEQuit($oIE) Exit EndFunc ;==>Terminate

      Hello Guru's,
       
      I'm trying to write an autoit script to select from the dropdown list as you see in the attached picture. 
      I read the help page for _IEFormElementOptionSelect, but I cannot grasp how to correlate that with the source code that I'm seeing. any suggestions?

      I am having a hard time understanding why this is not working. I was hoping some one could help explain it to me. 
      $tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName("input") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If string($class_value) = "fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl" Then $target = $tag ExitLoop EndIF Next MsgBox(0,"",$target) If $target = "fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl" THEN MsgBox(0,"","itworked") I have tried 
       MsgBox(0,"",$target.Attribute)  MsgBox(0,"",$target.Value)  MsgBox(0,"",$target.InnerText) I would expect to see this in the msgbox
      fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl
