IE Expand Tree

Recommended Posts

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 :no:. 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?  :poke:

Hi Xin, I see you are still working hard...Try this :

Local $oSpans = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "span")
For $oSpan In $oSpans
  If $oSpan.className = 'aciTreePush' Then
    _IEAction ($oSpan, "click")
    ExitLoop
  Endif
Next

Hey cool. Never saw this before. Thank you!

The very next expansion also appears to be "aciTreePush"

How do I send the next click if they're the same? :huh2:

hmm, maybe with .nextElementSibling Property or .firstElementChild Property, not sure...try

If $oSpan.className = 'aciTreePush' Then
    _IEAction ($oSpan, "click")
    Sleep (750)
    _IEAction ($oSpan.nextElementSibling, "click")
    ExitLoop
  endif

Hmm it's not working (or maybe I implemented the $var wrong). I also tried putting it in there multiple times just in case there are more instances of 'aciTreePush'  but that didn't help.

;Open an IE session and navigate to pgAdmin.
Global $oIE = _IECreate($pgAdmin)
_IELoadWait($oIE)

;Maximize the IE window.
WinSetState(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd"), "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

;Collect the span tags
Local $oSpans = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "span")

;Click the Servers expand arrow
For $oSpan In $oSpans
    If $oSpan.className = 'aciTreePush' Then
        _IEAction($oSpan, "click")
        Sleep(3000)

        ;Click the DDA expand arrow
        Local $var = $ospan.nextElementSibling
        _IEAction($var, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

I see...Try

Local $oSpans, $Count 

For $i = 1 to 2
  $oSpans= _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "span")
  $Count = 0
  For $oSpan In $oSpans
    If $oSpan.className = 'aciTreePush' Then
      $Count += 1
      if $Count = $i then
        _IEAction ($oSpan, "click")
        Sleep (1000)
        ExitLoop
      Endif
    Endif
  Next
Next

      Hello ,

      A website I am trying to login with my credentials.
      And retrieve the cookie into a text file.
      Unable to do so.
      Is it that certain,  Httponly , type - are not allowed to be fetched.

      Then further ,
      I will be checking every 5 minutes if my session is active , else re-login and re-fetch the cookie.
      For the second part , I will probably fetch some table and see if not in appropriate format do Part 1 : Fetch Cookie - again.
      Any better way , tips would be appreciated.
       
      Thanks

      Hello! Thanks you for looking at my post
      **No source code I'm sorry work related can't copy information**
      I've been using autoit for about 1 year. 
      I'm having trouble automating a click on an internet explorer web page and I've tried a lot of examples from help pages and forums already. The object I'm trying to click on isnt always in the same spot so I can't use mouse click or control click, I have tried to use the different get collection options and clickbyname, or index or get object. I'm just struggling. 
      Description of object I'm trying to click -- 
      HTML Code looks like <a ng-click.. "Click Here" it appears it's just a click able object named "click here" that opens a hidden window by running a script inside the web page. I'm not able to grab the information from the window unless it's open so I have to automate this click somehow. 
       
      I understand it's difficult to assist without having something to look at, I apologize for that sincerely and appreciate and assistance and suggestions.

      I've tried for a few days to simply open a url in IE and click an IE object that I can't "TAB" to and don't want to use a mouse-click if at all possible.  I've read up on things like using IEAction and IETagNameGetCollection to find the object but not smart enough to figure out how that works with my url or how to tell if my url is "basic" or a "form", "frameset", "iframe", etc.
      The other problem is I've tried using the "Run" and "ShellExecute" commands to open the browser, which works, but it opens it in a way that doesn't include my currently logged in user account.  For example, if I just click IE or Chrome for that matter and open my default homepage of google, the page that opens knows I'm logged in.  When I use "Send" "ShellExecute" or "_IE_Create" they always open pages generically which would require a login.
      So questions are, if I have a URL I'm trying to open, that's passes the currently logged on users credentials when opening the page (no clue where that happens)
      1.  Are there any code examples someone is willing to share that opens my IE maximized, with logged in credentials, and
      2.  Once that works, can someone suggest a technique a non-developer can find which IE Objects I need to send a "click" to so it opens the correct menu, pop-up, url, etc., associated with that object.  I've copied what doesn't work and sure I'm way off but it's not for a lack of effort. I'll keep trying and post updates but not looking good 🙂
      #include <IE.au3>
      Call ("selection")
      Func selection ()
      Global $oIE = _IECreate ("https://internal-webpage.aspx")
      Local $selectid = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "signageNo")
      Local $button = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "GO")

      _IEFormElementOptionSelect ($selectid, "3")
      _IEAction ($button,"click")
      EndFunc
      #include <IE.au3> Call ("selection") Func selection () Global $oIE = _IECreate ("https://internal-webpage.aspx") Local $selectid = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "signageNo") Local $button = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "GO") _IEFormElementOptionSelect ($selectid, "3") _IEAction ($button,"click") EndFunc 1.
