[SOLVED] How to change the status of an email from unread to read

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon, I am in need of some help. I am sure this is a stupid question requiring only one or two lines of code. However, I would greatly appreciate the help I cannot figure this out. I also tried searching for the answer on the internet but no one except me apparently seems to be having a hard time figuring this out and or is asking about it. 

I simply want to change the "status" of an email from unread to read once I have processed it. My code is over 500 lines and I would like not to clutter this post with it. Assume I have all my includes and connections properly defined and stuff. 

Here is the bit of code where I am trying to change the email that was used from unread to read:

Func ChangeEmailStatus()

    ;*******************************************************************************
    ; changes the status of an email from unread to Read
    ;*******************************************************************************
    Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS)
    MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows)

    _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[$i][0], Default, "Read=True")

    MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0])
    MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0])

    Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS)
    MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows)
    
EndFunc

What is the value of @error and @extended after _OL_ItemModify?
Every function returns information when there was an error.

@water I am not getting an error message?  Once the code starts the second loop the same email info is used again. My code is not correctly changing the email that was used from unread to read. 

 

Func ChangeEmailStatus()

    ;*******************************************************************************
    ; changes the status of an email from read to unread or vice versa
    ;*******************************************************************************
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)

    Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS)
    MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows)

    _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[1][0], Default, "Unread=True")
    ConsoleWrite("hello? Test?" & @CRLF)

    MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0])
    ;MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0])

    Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS)
    MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows)
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
    ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)
EndFunc

      Hi all,
      I'm developing a tool for exploratively testing another software. For that I wanna cover all the GUI functionality from that software and verify everything works as intended. But now I've a problem which I couldnt solve so far.
      One thing that software I'm testing does, is to load up either a single picture or a series of pictures. Depending on how much pictures got loaded, further actions will be proceeded...
      This loaded pictures are schon within a ToolbarWindow and they're clickable. What I need to know is, how much pictures are in this ToolbarWindow...
      Can anybody provide me a tip on how to achive this?
      Would be amazing!!
      BR,
      Mic

      Am trying to automate injecting credential on the login form for all kind of Web application for IE. I know how to identify the form name by viewing the source code and using the method - _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name).
      I would like to know how to identify or get the form object for the web app where there is no form name tag for example below, for the is I have used - _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) to get the form object.
      My Question is does it work for all kind of application "_IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0)" how to identify Index value? is it always 0? is there any better solution?
      The final solution am looking for is find out form object, get the username, password field and inject credential and submit the form.
      How to find out index value? for the forms which does not have form name field.
      $login_form = _IEFormGetCollection($ie, 0) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}") OR This works fine if the form has form name. $login_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($ie, $form_Name) $email_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_UserName) $pass_field = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_password) $login_button = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($login_form, $form_submitbutton) _IEFormElementSetValue($email_field, $CmdLine[2]) _IEFormElementSetValue($pass_field, $CmdLine[3]) ControlSend($hwnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]","{Enter}")
