WebDriver example scripts collection

Recommended Posts

The WebDriver UDF provides a toolbox full of functions to facilitate automating Web browsers.
Still scripts can become quite complex.

In this thread users can post "real life" examples to show how specific tasks can be implemented.

Note
When posting an example please describe the purpose of the script and the WebDriver functionality used!

What this script does
Extracts the list of GDPR fines from website enforcementttracker.com and returns a 2D array holding all items.

N.B. The numbers of the following list can be found in the script as comments.

WebDriver functionality used

  1. Tested with Firefox
  2. Start geckodriver to automate Firefox from a different location (needs to be modified by you in the scripts source)
  3. Maximize the browser window
  4. Retrieve all values from the "Show n entries" dropdown and select the second to last (50 entries)
  5. Sort the table by clicking on a table header
  6. Scroll to the end of the page
  7. Search and click a button

GDPR fines Version 1.au3

GDPR fines Version 2.au3

Edited by water
#4 has been enhanced: Now retrieves all values from the "Show n entries" dropdown and selects the second to last (50 entry). Was hardcoded before.

@water In GDPR fines.au3 you are using 

_WD_ElementOptionSelect($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//select[@name='penalties_length']//option[contains(text(),'100')]")
    If @error Then Return SetError(@error)

Would you be so nice and explain in a new example, a way to retrieve (as an array), a list of option from this element:

<select name="penalties_length" aria-controls="penalties" class=""><option value="10">10</option><option value="25">25</option><option value="50">50</option><option value="100">100</option></select>

 

btw.
I finally start to work with WebDriver UDF, soon will post more questions, examples, functions, my proposals.

@mLipok Here's a simple way to do it --

$sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//select[@name='penalties_length']")
$sText = _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'property', 'innerText')
$aOptions = StringSplit ( $sText, @LF,  $STR_NOCOUNT)
_ArrayDisplay($aOptions)

If you would rather process each element individually, then this gets them into an array for further processing --

$aElements = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//select[@name='penalties_length']//option", Default, True)
_ArrayDisplay($aElements)

Example script using the new _WD_ElementActionEx function --

#include "wd_core.au3"
#include "wd_helper.au3"

Local $sDesiredCapabilities, $sSession
SetupGecko()
_WD_Startup()
$sSession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities)
_WD_Navigate($sSession, "http://demo.guru99.com/test/simple_context_menu.html")
$sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//button[contains(text(),'Double-Click Me To See Alert')]")

If @error = $_WD_ERROR_Success Then
    _WD_ElementActionEx($sSession, $sElement, "doubleclick")
EndIf

Sleep(2000)
_WD_Alert($sSession, 'accept')

$sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//span[@class='context-menu-one btn btn-neutral']")

If @error = $_WD_ERROR_Success Then
    _WD_ElementActionEx($sSession, $sElement, "rightclick")
EndIf

Func SetupChrome()
    _WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe')
    _WD_Option('Port', 9515)
    _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"')
    $sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c": true, "args":["start-maximized","disable-infobars"]}}}}'
EndFunc   ;==>SetupChrome

Func SetupGecko()
_WD_Option('Driver', 'geckodriver.exe')
_WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log trace')
_WD_Option('Port', 4444)

$sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"browserName": "firefox", "acceptInsecureCerts":true}}}'
EndFunc

      We are running on a VIrtual Machine via Remote Desktop.  We are having a situation where the loading of the chromedriver.exe is taking longer on the VM than on a physical machine.  It is causing the first call to  WD_Post in _WD_CreateSession to fail.
      To workaround the Issue, I used a simplified version of (_WinAPI_GetTcpTable) UDF to Loop waiting for the driver port to be in the listening state.  At that point, I know that the Post will work:
      Func _WaitForPort($ListenPort) Do Local $tMIB_TCPTABLE = DllStructCreate("dword[6]") Local $aRet = DllCall("Iphlpapi.dll", "DWORD", "GetTcpTable", "struct*", $tMIB_TCPTABLE, "DWORD*", 0, "BOOL", True) Local $dwSize = $aRet[2] $tMIB_TCPTABLE = DllStructCreate("DWORD[" & $dwSize / 4 & "]") $aRet = DllCall("Iphlpapi.dll", "DWORD", "GetTcpTable", "struct*", $tMIB_TCPTABLE, "DWORD*", $dwSize, "BOOL", True) If $aRet[0] <> 0 Then Return SetError(1) Local $iNumEntries = DllStructGetData($tMIB_TCPTABLE, 1, 1) Local $aRes[$iNumEntries][6] For $i = 0 To $iNumEntries - 1 Local $Type = DllStructGetData($tMIB_TCPTABLE, 1, 2 + $i * 5 + 0) $aRet = DllCall("ws2_32.dll", "ushort", "ntohs", "uint", DllStructGetData($tMIB_TCPTABLE, 1, 2 + $i * 5 + 2)) ; local port Local $Port = $aRet[0] ConsoleWrite("Checking Row:" & $i & " State:<" & $Type & "> Port:<" & $Port & ">" & @CRLF) ; Type 2 is LISTENING If $Type = 2 And $Port = $ListenPort Then Return 1; EndIF Next Sleep(500); Until 0; Return 0; EndFunc ;==>_WaitForPort

      Internet Explorer is nearly dead, newer versions of Firefox can't any longer be automated using Stilgar's FF UDF.
      Hence more and more users (including me) need to look at automating Webbrowsers using WebDriver.
      That's why I have started to create a tutorial in the wiki.
      It should describe all necessary steps from intallation to usage.

      I'm still collecting ideas for the tutorial - that's where you come into play.
      What do you expect to see in such a tutorial?
      Which browsers should be covered (Firefox, Chrome and Edge are settled)? Any questions for the FAQ? Which (high level) coding examples do you expect (like "How to attach to a running browser instance") ... Like to see your comments
       
      ToDo-List:
      Add "Tools" section and add ChroPath plugin. Done. FAQ: "How to attach to a running browser instance". Done. Explain the difference between iuiautomation, iaccessible, autoit, webdriver. Done. The AutoIt FAQ 40 has been extended. Detailed description of each function. Done Example for "how to deal with downloading". Use function _WD_DownloadFile. Example for "how to deal with popups (alerts, print or save dialog). Use function_WD_AlertRespond to respond to a user prompt. Example for "how to deal with multiple tabs". Use functions _WD_NewTab (create a new tab), _WD_Window (close or switch to a tab) and _WD_Attach (attach to existing tab).

      Hey guys,
      I am creating my very first script that automates a browser (I usually work with program installs and database automation) and have come across an issue that I am totally stumped on. I need to click an element that gives me a drop down list box but the Xpath to the element changes with every instance of chrome I start...
      I have tried selecting the class, rect, and path but no luck. It never finds the element. (I could be doing this wrong since I am not good at HTML)
      Element I need to select:
      This is the Xpath for the last 3 instances of chrome I have run the script with:
      //*[@id="highcharts-5bp9crq-8"]/svg/g[6]/g/rect //*[@id="highcharts-fiw9szv-8"]/svg/g[6]/g/rect //*[@id="highcharts-5szkmx8-8"]/svg/g[6]/g/rect As you can see the path changes every time.
      How I am trying to select the element:
      ;Check for box element _WD_WaitElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//*[@id='highcharts-5bp9crq-8']/svg/g[6]/g") MsgBox(0, "", "check for timeout") $sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//*[@id='highcharts-5bp9crq-8']/svg/g[6]/g") _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'click') Maybe someone has come across this before and found a work around without using mouseclick()
      Thanks guys, hopefully I am just very overlooking something simple and can be pointed to the right solution.
      Side Note: I wish I could share the webpage entirety, but it has sensitive information with my agency that I cannot share. If you need more, just let me know and I will try and post as much as I can.
