Hello,

How can i get id (PQtyA2) from webpage using innertext ?

 

HTML

<td><label for="">Name</label> <input name="RitemDetails[2].IsPartialQtyAllowed" id="PQtyA2" type="hidden" value="1" data-val-required="The IsPartialQtyAllowed field is required." data-val="true" data-val-number="The field IsPartialQtyAllowed must be a number."></td>

 

 

I tried with this but not showing anything

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach ("Data Entry")
_IELoadWait($oIE)

Local $oTds = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "td")
For $oTd In $oTds
;~        MsgBox(0, "", $oTd.innertext)

 If $oTd.InnerText = "Name" Then
$findid = $oTd.NextElementSibling.id
    MsgBox(0, "", $findid)

EndIf
      Next

Your post is lacking a few details --

  • I assume that the Name and ID of the Input element changes every time, correct?
  • It isn't clear if "not showing anything" means that the message box is blank or it doesn't appear at all

FWIW, your issue is probably related to this line --

$findid = $oTd.NextElementSibling.id

This is probably returning the adjacent TD element rather than the desired child element.

Try this instead --

$findid = _IETagNameGetCollection($oTd, 'input', 0)

Alternatively, you might try this --

$findid = $oTd.ChildNodes[1].id

@Danp2Thank you for reply

  • I assume that the Name and ID of the Input element changes every time, correct? - Yes
  • It isn't clear if "not showing anything" means that the message box is blank or it doesn't appear at all - Yes 

 

I tried with this line

$findid = _IETagNameGetCollection($oTd, 'input', 0)

But stil getting blank msgbox (my webpage have multiples 'input' tags)

 

i also try with it.

$findid = $oTd.ChildNoes[1].id

But getiing this error

Sorry my suggestions weren't helpful. To be fair, you've provided very little information that could help us to help you. Then you respond "Yes" when I seek additional details to know if the message box is blank or if it doesn't appear at all. How does answering Yes here provide any useful information? 🙁

Seems like not much has changed since here.

Sorry @Danp2 This is happening because I don't know English very well, I try to explain to you again.

 

My Webpage have multiple <td> and <input> tags lke this

<td><label for="">Surname</label> <input name="RitemDetails[3].IsPartialQtyAllowed" id="PQtyA3" type="hidden" value="1" data-val-required="The IsPartialQtyAllowed field is required." data-val="true" data-val-number="The field IsPartialQtyAllowed must be a number."></td>
<td><label for="">Name</label> <input name="RitemDetails[2].IsPartialQtyAllowed" id="PQtyA2" type="hidden" value="1" data-val-required="The IsPartialQtyAllowed field is required." data-val="true" data-val-number="The field IsPartialQtyAllowed must be a number."></td>
  • The Name and ID of the Input element changes every time.
  •  "Not showing anything" means that the message box is blank

 

Actually i want to search 'Name' text then find the id and delete it using 

.RemoveNode(True)
 
This is because I don't know English very well

 
 
Means
Me

That's because your MsgBox command is attempting to display an object. Try this instead --

MsgBox(0, "", $findid.id)

 

Thank you @Danp2 Its Working.

I have one another question Sometimes $oTd.InnerText is not equal to 'Name' (Some times random text added before Name) Then How can i use if $oTd.InnerText statement?

 

StringInStr helped me.

Since the text actually belongs to the Label element, I would suggest that you try processing those instead of the TD elements.

@Danp2 How?

@jmpThe same way that you process TD or any other elements. 😏

@Danp2 i tried label instead of Td but i think it's not working, getting blank msgbox. 

• I changed only td to label

@jmp Then I can only assume that there's something wrong in your script. This is a modified version of your code which works for me --

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach ("", "instance")
_IELoadWait($oIE)

Local $oLabels = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "label")

For $oLabel In $oLabels
       Consolewrite($oLabel.innertext & @CRLF)

     If $oLabel.InnerText = "Name" Then

        $findid = $oLabel.NextElementSibling.id
        MsgBox(0, "", $findid)
    EndIf
Next

Thanks @Danp2 But i have two questions

1. This will be able to find faster than Td tag?

2. What is use of this Line ? Because its working without this line

Consolewrite($oLabel.innertext & @CRLF)
