objEvent for Windows 10 Internet Explorer not working - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

I have this AutoIt script that works on Windows 7. However, when I test it on Windows 10, the objEvent will not execute the function it's supposed to call. So I have a webpage the script will check if it is active, then it will search if a popup button exist (elementId), if so, assign it to the event handler so that when that button is clicked, then handler function will move the focus back to the main GUI again.

If WinActive("Website Title - Internet Explorer") Then
   $ie = _IEAttach("Website Title")
   $objElement= _IEGetObjById ($ie, "elementId")
   local $oEvent = ObjEvent($objElement, "_MY_EVENT_HANDLER_")
EndIf

Func _MY_EVENT_HANDLER_onclick($oEvtObj)
    msgbox(0,"Alert Window", "Button Clicked!")
    setMainWindow() ; sets focus back to main GUI
EndFunc

 

I've verified, on Windows 10, that it does see the object element. But it will not trigger the event. Could it be related to some timing issues due to Windows 10 Internet Explorer over Windows 7 Internet Explorer? 

Windows 7 IE version 11.0.9600.19507

Windows 10 IE version 11.418.18362.0

AutoIt v 3.3

@Nine Thanks for the reply,

I added some consoleWrites to look at each of the output variables but it didn't show me anything and it still won't run on Windows 10. When I click on the button that's related to the handler, nothing for the SCILite output. 

I'm still relatively new to AutoIt, so please let me know if I can log this better somehow. My code and the results in the SCILite console are below:

If WinActive("Website Title - Internet Explorer") Then
   $ie = _IEAttach("Website Title")
   ; Also tried passing the handle here
   $objElement= _IEGetObjById ($ie, "elementId")
   consoleWrite('ButtonElement' & $objElement & @CRLF)
   local $oEvent = ObjEvent($objElement, "_MY_EVENT_HANDLER_")
   ConsoleWrite('ObjEvent' & $oEvent & @CRLF)
EndIf

Func _MY_EVENT_HANDLER_onclick($oEvtObj)
    ConsoleWrite('_MY_EVENT_HANDLER_onclick' & $oEvtObj & @CRLF)
    setMainWindow() ; sets focus back to main GUI
EndFunc
>"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\autoit3.exe" /ErrorStdOut "C:\gross\Gross.au3"    
ButtonElement
ObjEvent
>Exit code: 0    Time: 47.19

@Danp2 Thanks, I've modified the consoleWrite and added and a @error for a popup msgbox under the objEvent but didn't receive any msgbox either. My code is below:

If WinActive("Website Title - Internet Explorer") Then
   $ie = _IEAttach("Website Title")
   ; Also tried passing the handle here
   $objElement= _IEGetObjById ($ie, "elementId")
   consoleWrite('ButtonElement: ' IsObj($objElement) & @CRLF)
   local $oEvent = ObjEvent($objElement, "_MY_EVENT_HANDLER_")
   if @error <> 0 Then MsgBox(0,"ERROR DETECTED",@error)
   ConsoleWrite('ObjEvent: ' & IsObj($oEvent) & @CRLF
EndIf

Func _MY_EVENT_HANDLER_onclick($oEvtObj)
    ConsoleWrite('_MY_EVENT_HANDLER_onclick: ' & IsObj($oEvtObj) & @CRLF)
    setMainWindow() ; sets focus back to main GUI
EndFunc
ButtonElement: 1
ObjEvent: 1

 

I tested it on my Windows 7 desktop to compare:

ButtonElement: 1
ObjEvent: 1
_MY_EVENT_HANDLER_onclick: 0

I'm open to other suggestions to get this to work, if I can't use IE from Windows 10?

@Nine I've updated my code and tried to run in on Windows 7, however, it no longer works here, but I'll try it on Windows 10 and check. Below is the code:

 

$ie = _IEAttach("Website Title")
   ; Also tried passing the handle here
   $objElement= _IEGetObjById ($ie, "elementId")
   Local $oDocument = $ie.document
   consoleWrite('ButtonElement: ' IsObj($objElement) & @CRLF)
   Global $oEvent = ObjEvent($oDocument, "_MY_EVENT_HANDLER_", "HTMLDocumentEvents2")
   ;if @error <> 0 Then MsgBox(0,"ERROR DETECTED",@error)
   ;ConsoleWrite('ObjEvent: ' & IsObj($oEvent) & @CRLF

@Yodavish Perhaps you could post a fully working reproducer script using a publicly available website? As is, we can only guess at the issue because the code you've shared thus far would exit immediately after being run, so there's no possibility for the event to be captured.

@Danp2 Ah I solved it since you mentioned a possible exit immediately before the event is captured, I decided to move this portion of the code up in my while loop and it now triggers the event properly when the browser is active. Thanks everyone for your help. I'll need to put consoleWrites all on my functions to see the order of which occur to see the order of it properly.

      Hi guys
      AutoIt content - Microsoft thinks any AutoIt content is unwanted.
      What it does is simply delete any EXEs. No option of do you want to continue...
      The March 2020 updated has substantially changed the Defender Virus Protection logic and layout.
      I found three pages relevant to the help, and lots of outdated content. Is there a quick and easy way to set folder exclusions? Any help is appreciated and simply using google is not good enough, as this is a new problem, caused by the update.
      Any ideas please?

      Found it.
      Accessing the menu through the Control Panel does not work
      Click the Defender shield in the icon tray.
      Scroll down to Virus & threat protection settings click Manage Settings Scroll down to Exclusions click Add or remove exclusions then click the + for Add an exclusion, and select File / Folder / File type / Process 
      Select Folder and browse to select. 😥

      Hi all,
      I'm trying to automate the install of a specific networking device. All goes well, I can install the driver on both Windows 7 & 10, rescan for hardware, set the IP-settings and all, but there's one issue. In Windows 10, I can disable all connection protocols using Powershell, but Windows 7 does not offer this Powershell-Cmdlet. So I programmed a way (two years ago) to let AutoIt open the network-adapter properties and then deselect all checkboxes except for the TCP/IP-V4. I recovered this snippet somewhere in my old files and tried to reintegrate this into my latest script, but it doesn't seem to work. On Windows 10 I get a blank screen for a few seconds and that's it, on Windows 7 it makes explorer crash. 
      I think it's quite safe to test this on your own system as long as you're not using IPv6 to connect to the internet and as long as you return to check all the boxes again (so you don't break your connectivity).
      If  anyone has any idea, I'd be glad to hear from you!
      Thanks in advance and stay safe in these Corona-ridden times 🙂
      Kind regards,
      Jan

      I have a strange behavior in an Autoit program.  
      The program works perfectly in the original environment I created the program for - for Windows 7 and Office  2010.
      My workplace is migrating to Windows 10 with Office 2016.  When I run this program in that new environment,  the code actually executes without any errors, however, the excel process which was opened to read a spreadsheet/workbook does not close while the program is running.  If you exit the program, the excel process ends at that point...
      I could ignore this behavior - one little excel process hanging out there is not going to kill anything, however - it just bugs me !
      While troubleshooting the issue, I placed a number of error checks after the excel close - and the close actually reports that it is successful. 
      I tried a few varieties of closing the excel process, and none of the methods tried seemed to actually work as well at the one in my code - the only downside being that it has to wait until the program finishes to actually close.
      Any ideas on why an excel close would hang until program exit ?
       
      Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open(False, False, False, False, True) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) Local $oWorkbook = _Excel_BookOpen($oExcel, $sUserRoleMenuXLS, False, true ) If @error Then     MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF", "Error opening workbook '" & $sUserRoleMenuXLS & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)     _Excel_Close($oExcel, False, False)  Exit EndIf ;  this section will find the user id in the first 3 columns of the user/menu spreadsheet, and if it finds it - returns the value stored in the cell 2 locations to the right...

      My AutoIt script works fine, for the most part, however, if it goes idle for roughly 30 minutes, it will won't be able to send data to a 3rd party application window titled, "Case #". 
      The problem lies within the function "SendFusion", it's able to see the handle for the "WinActivate" and "WinWaitActivate" (I've also tried putting in 10 seconds in the WinWaitActivate as well, doesn't work). However, if we have been idle, it will always fail to send data afterward. On what I've tried so far:
      "Send" function with the data and a {ENTER} i.e. Send($CaseTxt & "{ENTER}"), this won't even hit the enter key  ControlSetText, tried passing the handle from WinActivate, using the title "Case #" that was copied directly from the Autoit Window Info, hard coding the title, Using CLASS:WindowsForms10... always returns a 0 ControlCommand (same as above) always returns a 0 ControlGetFocus always returns a 0 ControlFocus, always returns a 0 Creating a new and simple Au3 script that just sends data to "Case #", also fails NOTE: If I close the Au3 script and just scan the data directly into the "Case #" or even type it, it works fine with no issues. I'm confused as to why it would not work after a long idle period?
      Below are the essential parts of the script, I can provide the entire thing if needed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

      Window Control (x86) Info, I've tried the CLASS, the ID, also I just noticed that the "handle" in "Control" and "Window" appear to be different as well.

       
      So far the only work-around is to close down the 3rd party application and the AutoIt script, re-open them and it works all completely fine. But this is a pain for the end-user since it's all touch screen and it slows down their workflow, which they can be extremely sensitive about.
