[Solved] Simulating IE click on complex "A" tagg


Recommended Posts

Hi

Am trying to simulate a click on this "thing". Can't really know how to handle it

<a name="viewr.alm_hardware.managed_by" tabindex="-1" class="btn btn-default btn-ref icon icon-info" id="viewr.alm_hardware.managed_by" data-type="reference_popup" data-ref="alm_hardware.managed_by" data-table="alm_hardware" data-ref-key="null" data-new-window="false" data-view="" data-form="sys_user.do"><span class="sr-only">Preview record for field: Géré par</span></a>

It is a button that open a Window of another form

Allreayd tried to get collection of all types, getting ObjByName or ID, unsuccessully

 

Any idea ?

I allready tried  _IELinkClickByText but as there's no HREF I don't really know what to search for

If I try _IEGetObjByName , no Obj returned

In fact this code is behind a img button in a ServiceNow session

Going to provide more :)

As joined, that is the screenshot of the button I want to interract

I succesfully cath any other information from this frame (INPUT) with such code

Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oFrame,"alm_hardware.do")
Local $oElem = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm,"sys_display.original.alm_hardware.managed_by")
Local $Res = _IEFormElementGetValue($oElem)
Return $Res

This code catch the content of the INPUT just right next to, and works flawelessly

<input name="sys_display.alm_hardware.managed_by" class="form-control element_reference_input  " id="sys_display.alm_hardware.managed_by" role="combobox" aria-required="false" aria-labelledby="label.alm_hardware.managed_by" aria-activedescendant="" aria-owns="AC.alm_hardware.managed_by" spellcheck="false" aria-autocomplete="list" onfocus="if (!this.ac) addLoadEvent(function() {var e = gel('sys_display.alm_hardware.managed_by'); if (!e.ac) new AJAXTableCompleter(gel('sys_display.alm_hardware.managed_by'), 'alm_hardware.managed_by', 'null', ''); e.ac.onFocus();})" type="text" value="TOTO" data-name="managed_by" autocomplete="off" data-type="ac_reference_input" data-ref="alm_hardware.managed_by" data-table="sys_user" data-ref-dynamic="false" data-ref-key="null" data-ref-qual="" data-dependent="null" data-completer="AJAXTableCompleter" ac_order_by="last_name" ac_columns="first_name;last_name;user_name;email" autocorrect="off">

 

Actually I interract with this button with graphic method, that is not 100% reliable

The code I posted catch the INPUT value, works fine

The code I need is : Go click on the 'info' button I enlighted
So Indeed thet don't have the same name and/or id

Going to post some code that  doesn't work

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,0)
$oTag = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm,"viewr.alm_hardware.managed_by")
_IEAction($oTag,"click")

Returns

--> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Warning from function _IEFormElementGetObjByName, $_IESTATUS_NoMatch
--> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IEAction(click), $_IESTATUS_InvalidDataType

In fact, I have problems because there's no simpole function that handle the "A' tag that has no HREF nor anything 'regular'

I can catch INPUT, TABKE, or BUTTON easily but this 'A' turns me nut

Previously, you retrieved the form by name instead of index. Are you sure that you have the correct form?

Yes this 'A' tag is from the form "alm_hardware.do"

As i said INPUT tag is'nt a problem at all, only this 'A' tag

If I try to get a collection of all 'A' tagg, I never get the name of this one

I'm trying to help you, but you have me at a distinct disadvantage because I can't see the website's full HTML. You're telling me that it's the same form, but you're using a different method to retrieve the form's object reference.

Instead of this --

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,0)

please use this --

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oFrame,"alm_hardware.do")

In fact, now I'm wondering if you meant to use _IEFormGetCollection here instead of _IEFormGetObjByName because it doesn't make sense to pass a value of 0 for the form's name.

Also, just notice the use of $oFrame instead of the traditional $oIE. You didn't show how this variable was defined. Is this truly a frame reference? If so, shouldn't you be using it as well when trying to click the link?

In first intention I intended to catch all the 'A' tagg. It somehow works for some of

Example :

Local $oTags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "a")
For $oTag In $oTags
    ConsoleWrite("Id:" & $oTag.id & @TAB & "Name:" & $oTag.name & @CRLF)
Next

Returns Id:print-icon Name:

And in source code it appears as

<a class="icon-print settings-menu-icon" id="print-icon" href="javascript:void(0)"><span class="sr-only">Version imprimable</span></a>

But at no moment I catch the 'A' tag from

<a name="viewr.alm_hardware.managed_by" tabindex="-1" class="btn btn-default btn-ref icon icon-info" id="viewr.alm_hardware.managed_by" data-type="reference_popup" data-ref="alm_hardware.managed_by" data-table="alm_hardware" data-ref-key="null" data-new-window="false" data-view="" data-form="sys_user.do"><span class="sr-only">Preview record for field: Géré par</span></a>

Why ? :( It has an id, but no link as it opens a window with data from another form

Probably because it's contained in a frame. First, get a reference to the frame. Then use that in place of $oIE in your code above.

Going to check this en ensure that I work on the right one

There is indeed frames

Stay tuned dear helper :)

You were ****ly right

I wrote this code

Local $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE,0)
Local $oTags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oFrame, "a")
For $oTag In $oTags
    ConsoleWrite("Id:" & $oTag.id & @TAB & @TAB & @TAB & "Classname:" & $oTag.className & @TAB & @TAB & @TAB & "Name:" & $oTag.name & @CRLF)
Next

And in the flood result appears

Id:viewr.alm_hardware.managed_by   Classname:btn btn-default btn-ref icon icon-info   Name:viewr.alm_hardware.managed_by

Going to replace the Consolewrite with some action now
