IE DOM explorer not showing the detail it used to

Recommended Posts

I am pretty sure the site that I am using was updated and now I am not seeing the same tags/elements that I used to. I tried using a UIAspy to see if I could grab them that way with no luck. 

What do I need to do to be able to automate this again. Are the elements hidden somewhere?

Instead of highlighting established account is highlights all of the web page almost. How can I get to the detail again? 

I used to grab establish account by the name. Now I have nothing to even try to grab. 

There are not elements in the event viewer either.

This is what happens when I try to inspect the element and click established account. 

I get the same type of results in chrome

It does not get rid of anything thing visual until I delete

 

<canvas width="1479" height="901" style="width: 1479px; height: 901px;"></canvas>

 

this is what is looks like when I delete the above line.

If I delete any of these nothing changes that I can see.

<div class="overlayEle" style="width: 1479px; height: 901px; position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px;"></div>

 

<div class="scrollerInnerEle" style="height: 336px; width: 632px;"></div>
<div class="scrollerOuterEle" style="width: 1479px; height: 901px; position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px; overflow: auto;"></div>

 

Not sure how much help this is going to be, but this is how I used to grab it.

Any chance you can tell us the website or (better yet) upload the html source? I realize you're at work though :)

Have you tried expanding more items below the expected area? Sometimes stuff is hidden for me. If the URL changes after you click on those options, you could always navigate there instead. If it's JavaScript, you could execute the JavaScript on the page instead.


All my code provided is Public Domain... but it may not work. ;) Use it, change it, break it, whatever you want.

Hover over the link radio button(?) or try to copy it... you should see a URL or something like like "javascript:submitAction_win0(document.win0,'#ICRow0');"  (That's a PeopleSoft example).

Also, can you right click on it and see what you get when you select Inspect/Inspect Element... I assume the canvas, but who knows :)

      Is there probably a way to click ie popup button and hide or invisible popup button in the same time?
      I try to use WinSetState @SW_hide ,
      the result is ie crashing or no response because button hide and the next click command won't work...
      $oForm=_IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,"form1") $obutton=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm,"btn_OK") $hWnd = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd") _IEAction($obutton,"focus") ControlSend($hWnd, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]", "{Enter}") WinWait("", "確定存檔嗎?") WinSetState("","確定存檔嗎?",@SW_Hide) ControlClick("", "確定存檔嗎?", "[CLASS:Button; TEXT:確定; Instance:1;]")

      Hey there!
      I am having a problem with clicking a button in IE. As you can see in the code, there would be a class name to click it, but since this button exists several times with exactly the same code, I can only use the "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" to separate it from the others. But this part is just pure text without any classification. 
      "<div class="checkmark" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" class="icon" viewBox="0 0 16 16" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><circle cx="8" cy="8" r="8" data-v-1e5b1f70="" /></svg></div>Noch nicht veröffentlicht"
      I was trying to click it with:
      #include <IE.au3> local $oNNVs = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE2) For $oNNV in $oNNVs If String($oNNV.innertext) = "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" Then _IEAction($oNNV, "click") EndIf Next and:
      $inputs = $oIE2.document.getElementsByTagName("div") For $input In $inputs If $input.innertext == "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" then $input.click() EndIf Next But nothing seems to work. Thanks for the help!

      Hello Everyone,
      I'm looking for a way to use an already open Internet Explorer (IE) window (if one is up and running) and then navigate to a new URL in a new IE tab.
      I thought that _IECreate would easily meet my needs. However, when I use the following script:
      #include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://" & $Server & ":8444/", 1, 1, 0, 1) ...with one or more open IE windows, it still opens yet a new IE window.
      Are there any other ideas for how to reliably use an already open IE windows and then how to open a new tab in IE to navigate to a new URL?
      Regards,
      TX Techie

      Hi All,
      I've tried to create a script to browse to a web page in IE, but it only works for some sites, I've tried to simplify the script as much as possible, hoping you can point me in the right direction - thanks.
      This one going to Google does work:
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.google.com.au/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) But this one going to OneDrive opens the IE page, but fails immediately returning the errors, and the IE window is not closed:
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_ClientDisconnected (-2147023174, Browser has been deleted prior to operation.)
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType ()
      --> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IEQuit, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("https://abccorp-my.sharepoint.com/", 0, 1, 1) _IELoadWait($oIE) _IEQuit($oIE) Even if I put a sleep timer in for 10 seconds after the _IECreate it still doesn't work
      Thanks all!

      On that page is a login form requiring username, password and then the clicking of the button (or pressing enter but I'm not a fan of using Send)
      Here's the section of code from the page that specifically deals with the form...
      <form> <div class="error-message-login" data-test="error-message"></div> <label> <span>User email</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="email" type="text" placeholder="Your email"> </div> </label> <label> <span>Password</span> <div class="ui input"> <input id="password" type="password" placeholder="Password"> </div> </label> <button class="ui primary button" role="button" data-test="login">Login</button> <p> <a class="forgot-your-password" href="https://www.rightmove.co.uk/forgottenPasswordForm.html">Forgot your password?</a> </p> </form> Specifically the <button class...></button> is causing me problems as I can't find a way to click it. The 'User email' and 'Password' objects have an 'id' so I can reference these in the AutoIT code and interact with them and the button also previously had the id of 'login' but I guess in a change to this page that was altered.
      Oddly, if I get the code to show the instance of IE that is created and manually click Login or press Enter the page gives me an error saying 'Please enter your email address' even though it is there. I have to manually go into each field and make a change i.e. adding a character to the end of each field then deleting it before it will let me in by either clicking Login or pressing enter. So maybe there's so code elsewhere on the page that knows the fields haven't been physically typed in?
      Any help on this would be much appreciated.
