How do you view an "Attribute" in MsgBox [Solved]

Recommended Posts

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

Life's simple. You make choices and you don't look back.

Try this logic:

$bOk=False

;...  

$tags = $oIE.document.GetElementsByTagName("input")
   For $tag in $tags
$class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class")

If string($class_value) = "fTs-p3298-l0 wplEditControl" Then
      MsgBox(0,$class_value,"itworked")
      $bOk=True
      ExitLoop
   EndIF
Next
   
if Not $bOk Then MsgBox(0,"","Error")

$tag isn't a string it's a element. The attribute is already saved in $class_value as string.

Its strange that $Target.Value didn't work unless it was empty, but as AutoBert pointed out $Target variable is an Element Object so you would still need to treat it as an object see example below:
nb: For the example please open https://supsystic.com/example/contact-us-form/ in IE first, then run the code below

  1. It should find the "Last Name" field using the attribute "name"
  2. Add "Subz" value to the "Last name" field
  3. Assign $oInput to $oTag
  4. Exitloop
  5. Print the $oTag "data-name" attribute to the console
  6. Print the $oTag "Value" to the console (should say "Subz")

nb1: You normally can't use ".InnerText" with Inputs as these tags normally doesn't require closing aka </input>.
nb2: You would still require to use "GetAttribute" with the object not just "Attribute"

Hope that helps.

#include <IE.au3>

Global $oIE = _IECreate("https://supsystic.com/example/contact-us-form/", 1)
Global $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "Input")
If IsObj($oInputs) Then
    For $oInput in $oInputs
        If $oInput.GetAttribute("name") = "fields[last_name]" Then
            $oInput.Value = "Subz"
            $oTag = $oInput
            ExitLoop
        EndIf
    Next
EndIf
ConsoleWrite("$oTag Data-Name Attribute = " & $oTag.GetAttribute("data-name") & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite(StringStripWS("$oTag Value = " & $oTag.Value, 7) & @CRLF)

      The problem that I am having is when my Msgbox pops up it come up blank.
      I would like it to show Nonprocedure.  
      Why is my msgbox coming up blank?
      How do I grab NonProcedure code and display it  in msgbox. 
      Do $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE,"class") For $oInput in $oInputs If StringStripWS($oInput.innertext,1) = "medical__name" Then $otarget = $oInput $vTxt = $otarget. ExitLoop Else $target = "1" EndIf Next Until $otarget <> "1" MsgBox(0,"",$vTxt) <div class="medical__summary"> <a class="medical__name" onclick="trackmedicalEvent('medicalClick', 'click', '4990000', '82546', 'tri', 1, '');" href="/field/origin/a/xid=i5dbe04e5d2ac4ad58ea5bdb7049b1af7">NonProcedure</a> <a class="medical__group" href="/field/origin">Origin <span class="medical__category-name">(medical)</span></a> <div class="medical__extended-fields"> <span class="medical__extended-field">Number 319390</span> <span class="medical__extended-field">Type</span> </div> </div>

      Hello all,
      Preface: Column A is full of courses. Column B is full of usernames. If course (A1) exists, we check to see if username (B1) is enrolled. If user is found, the user is un-enrolled. Then Loop.
      I am working on a script that loops through an Excel file and pastes the content from A1 into a textbox in IE, does some stuff, then pastes the content from B1 into a different textbox. Then it loops around until all used rows in columns A and B have been accounted for.
      For some reason, column A loops properly but column B doesn't. B1 is pasted over and over again. So, as it loops, B1 is constantly being pasted, first accompanying A1's loop, then A2, and so on.
      The OpenExcel() func opens the Excel file the user specifies in an earlier function. It's supposed to gather the entire used range of columns A and B. The SearchCourse() func only uses column A, pasting its content into a Search tool in IE. This seems to be working fine. SearchResult() puts "Course Not Found" into column C if the search fails. If the search is successful, however, we move onto... EnterCourse(). This simply gets us to the place where column B's content comes into play. UnenrollNow(). Here, we paste the variable $_userName into a textbox. I don't know why it's always B1  Func OpenExcel() If Not WinExists($hWnd) Then MsgBox(16, "Window closed", "The Internet Explorer window was closed. Please start over.") _Exit() Else $oExcel = _Excel_Open() Global $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $ChosenFileName, Default, True, True) $oExcel.Sheets("CopyCourses").Activate ;~ Get all used cells in columns A and B $aSearchItems = _Excel_RangeRead($oWorkbook, 1, $oWorkbook.Sheets("CopyCourses").Usedrange.Columns("A:B")) ;~ Create the $aSearchResult array ReDim $aSearchResult[UBound($aSearchItems)] ;~ Loop through the array starting at 0 until the end of the array which is (Ubound($aSearchItems) - 1) For $i = 0 To UBound($aSearchItems) - 1 ;~ Column 0 ConsoleWrite($aSearchItems[$i][0] & @CRLF) ;~ Column 1 ConsoleWrite($aSearchItems[$i][1] & @CRLF) $aSearchResult[$i] = SearchCourse($aSearchItems[$i][0], $aSearchItems[$i][1]) Next _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook, Default, $aSearchResult, "C1") ;~ When the loop is complete, run the Finished function.

      Strange thing. When I load a page in IE and inspect, the elements are clearly there but when I try to find them using _IEGetObjById or _IETagNameGetCollection or even using JS right in the IE console, the elements can't be found.
      Have you guys even encoutered something similar?

      Greetings!
      I am in need of your guidance once again. I searched the forums for clicking in span, clicking by class, clicking without an ID or Name, etc., but I am unable to find a solution for my problem.
      I am trying to expand this tree in IE. There is an arrow ( > ) that i need to click, but I can't find a way to do it . Alternatively, I can double-click the text "Servers", but that seems to be even more troublesome. I will have to do this 2-3 more times as the tree expands.
      There appears to be an ID for the tree, simply called "tree", but that isn't working when I send a click to it.

      ;Open an IE session and navigate to pgAdmin. Global $oIE = _IECreate($pgAdmin) ;Maximize the IE window. WinSetState(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd"), "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) Sleep(2000) ;Expand the tree $oTree = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "tree") _IEAction($oTree, "click") Any ideas?

      Hello all!   I'm stuck at a seemingly simple part of my script. Using IE, I'm filling out a web form that involves clicking a "Browse" button and selecting a file. Once the file explorer dialog opens, however, I am unable to control it.
      I have a string, which is the name of the file I want, and I'm trying to insert it into the 'File name:' text box in the dialog (which already has focus), but it doesn't get inserted. I've tried ClipPut and Send. 

      What's even more concerning is, when I close the dialog, the string is then pasted into the very next window that has focus, which is often SciTE. It's like that Browse's file open dialog halts all processes. Once it's closed, the script continues.
      ;~ Open a IE window and navigate to the login page. Global $oIE = _IECreate($urlBBLogin) _IELoadWait($oIE) ;~ Recognize the form on this page (login input boxes). Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "login") Local $oTextLogin = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "user_id") Local $oTextPass = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "password") ;~ Enter the Automation user credentials into the form. _IEFormElementSetValue($oTextLogin, $bbUsername) _IEFormElementSetValue($oTextPass, $bbPassword) ;~ Click the Login button. _IEFormSubmit($oForm) _IELoadWait($oIE) ;~ Navigate to the feedfile upload page. _IENavigate($oIE, $urlUpload) _IELoadWait($oIE) ;~ Click the Browse button Local $Browse = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "feedFile_chooseLocalFile") _IEAction($Browse, "Click") Local $Browse = WinWait("Choose File to Upload") ;~ Open the file we created. WinActivate($Browse) Send($finalFile) Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any ideas to get around it? Am I approaching this the wrong way?
      Any support is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.
