@MarluyYour xpath needs to point to the desired Option element. Try this -- _WD_ElementOptionSelect($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//select[@name='country']//option[@value='BRAZIL']")  

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Window/open#window_features Edit: It's often helpful to check out the internal code... in this case it's nice because it is passed to _WD_ExecuteS

I know that there is _WD_LoadWait() function.
But I'm wondering how to use waiting and progress and offline and stalled and suspend events to check the current state.

Also how to use keydown and touchstart and touchmove events to check if user is manually interacting with browser.

Maybe somehow using JS + storages ?

@mLipokGenerally, you shouldn't need to worry about that because the webdriver handles this automatically for you. However, you should be able to do it with _WD_ExecuteScript and Javascript.

As I used such function in IE thus migrating to WD I try to have according replacement at first step, after some time I will refactor code to remove such functions, but temporarily at the migration stage, I prefer to repeat all the steps that were performed in IE.

or:

$sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "label[for='input34']")
_WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'CLICK')

 

This did not work for me. The _WD_FindElement result was an error.
Using the line below, the result I get equals $_WD_ERROR_Success.

$sElement = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//*[@name='remember']")

However, the _WD_ELEmentAction "click" does not work on the checkbox.
One other problem I encountered was also that input34 sometime (don't know why) changes to inputXX with XX being a seemingly random numbers.
Your post however help me to rethink the problem and fix it with also the help op Danp2.

in one of my IE project I had such scenario

Local $oIE_Main = ....
Local $oFrame_1 = ....
Local $oFrame_2 = ....
_IENavigate($oFrame_2, $sURL)

I mean I need to navigate document in $oFrame_2 without moving $oFrame_1 and without moving $oIE_Main.

As so far I tries this scenario:

_WD_FrameEnter($sSession, 2)
_WD_Navigate($sSession, $sURL)

I was in hope that only  second frame will navigate to $sURL but unfortunately navigation was taken for entire browser, not for specific frame.

How to solve this issue ?

As so far I found:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15464808/how-to-navigate-a-subframe-inside-a-frameset-using-selenium-webdriver

But it is about navigating between frame aka switching.
I can switch to frame with WebDriver in AutoIt.

When I already swithc to desired frame how to navigate this frame to different URL ?

For an hour I searched first for the cause of the problem in my IE to WD migration project.
Then I wrote a question (post above).
And a while ago, I found a solution.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/22095346/loading-a-url-in-a-frame-using-selenium-c-sharp

_WD_FrameEnter($sSession, Null)
    _WD_FrameEnter($sSession, 2)
    Local $s_JavaScript = "window.location.href='" & $s_Warehouse_url & "'"
    _WD_ExecuteScript($sSession,$s_JavaScript)

@Jemboy

  1. Your post has been moved to this thread in the GH&S section (thanks to the @mod that moved it for me). General questions regarding the UDF belong here, not in the thread in the AutoIt Example Scripts section.
     
  2. Your attempt to check the checkbox using _WD_ElementAction / Select command will never work.
     
  3. Try using WD_ElementActionEx / Check command instead.
     
  4. I doubt that you will achieve the goal of a faster login unless you switch to using an existing user profile.

@Danp21. Thanks voor the move, must haven "sleeping"😁

2. / 3. Thanks for this tip. After updating the webdriver UDF, I found the "check" command at the  WD_ElementActionEx function, which worked!!!👏👏

4. Your are right again! I chan check the checkbox now, but it is not remembered for future sessions.🙁

@jiataifengCalling _WD_Shutdown() will close the webdriver without closing the browser window.

Note: You will probably experience other "console" windows appearing after you do this. This is a known issue with chromedriver (and probably msedgedriver) when forcibly closed.

Another option would be to hide the chromedriver window instead of forcibly closing it.

Greetings everyone, would like to kindly request a little from the more knowledgeable in this field. 

End goal:
I am trying to automate some of the print settings off the Chrome - Print Dialog box for user to minimize mistakes in selecting wrong printer destination, paper size, scaling factor, etc.

At the first stage now, which is to reach the elements on chrome://print (page source when the Print Dialog box pops up).
I've achieved it through iterating through the shadow-roots and finding the element.
Print Destination <-- I've managed to to select the options in the dropdown list into an ArrayDisplay and displayed the array.

image.png.8fda6ed360e084c983b98ec0122c41c1.png

However, I'm stuck at attempting to select a different option in the dropdown using _WD_ElementOptionSelect.
It fails and just remains at the current value.

Attached herewith are snippets of the code and debug log.

As seen here, it returns HTTP status = 404 when I attempt to select the option "Save as PDF/local/" by its value and the selected element remains my HP printer.

Appreciate if someone could shed some light?

Thank you!

  • Use _WD_FindElement to locate the desired element
  • Use _WD_ElementAction to click it

Initially I think I could suggest a better solution, but now I'm busy at work.
I will try to check in the next few hours.

it is interesting to me... so at first step I refactor your code a little

  • _WD_UpdateDriver
  • error checking
  • variable doclaration with Local to fit Au3Check requirments

 

#include <Array.au3>

    _WD_Shutdown()
EndFunc

Func SetupChrome()
    _WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe')
    _WD_Option('Port', 9515)
    _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--verbose --log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"')

I said no because easier way to do this is:

Local $a_Printer[] = ['Save as PDF']
_WD_ElementSelectAction($WD_SESSION, $sSelectElement, "MULTISELECT", $a_Printer)


I just had to check the code given by @Zul.
Finally I changed the code, a little more by adding separate function: _WD_ChromePrintingGUI()

 

Here is better example:
 

#include <Array.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include "wd_capabilities.au3"
#include "wd_helper.au3"

_Example()

Func _Example()

    _WD_UpdateDriver('chrome')
    Local $sSession = SetupChrome()
    If @error Then Return SetError(@error, @extended, 0)

    _WD_Navigate($sSession, 'https://www.google.com/')
    _WD_LoadWait($sSession, 1000)

    Local $sFilePath = "chrome://print"
    _WD_Navigate($sSession, $sFilePath)

    _WD_ChromePrintingGUI($sSession, 'PDFCreator')
;~  _WD_ChromePrintingGUI($sSession, 'Save as PDF')
;~  _WD_ChromePrintingGUI($sSession, 'Zapisz jako PDF')

    _WD_Shutdown()
EndFunc   ;==>_Example
