AutoIt script <Div class> search

Recommended Posts

Hello all I have been lurking on this forum for a bit and have search nearly all the support threads around a script to read a webpage, input data, and click on a button.  I was wonder if someone can help connect the dots for me on my code.   The problem I have is with a website that has this class tag.  <div class="uiButton-label">Mail</div>  See attached image of the website code. 

The first part of my code works fine.   It input the username and password and hit the login in button.


Block 1 - This one is just the input of the username and password and click on login button.  (working)


 #include <IE.au3>

;~ Connect to the site
Local $oIE = _IECreate("my website ", 1)
;~ Wait for the site to load
;~ Get all Inputs
Local $oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "Input")
For $oInput In $oInputs
    ;~ Fill in Username Field
    If $oInput.id = 'username' Then $oInput.value = 'Your ID'
    ;~ Fill in Password Field
    If $oInput.id = 'password' Then $oInput.value = 'Your Password'

;~ Get all Buttons
Local $oButtons = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "Button")
For $oButton In $oButtons
    ;~ Check if Button InnerText equals Log In and perform an action.
    ;~ Uncomment the _IEAction line below to submit the form.
    If $oButton.id = 'Login' Then
        MsgBox(64, 'Log In Button Found', 'Button found with value: ' & $oButton.InnerText)
        _IEAction($oButton, 'click')





Block 2 -  The code below is actually part of the block 1 code. I just broke this up for better visual.   The problem here is I'm thinking it's not able to find the class 'Mail'.  From the attachment it's labeled.  The site has label this as <div class= "uiButton-label">Mail</div>.   I even try the full class name and it did work.  I can use "uiButton-label cause there are other similar buttons with this label.  Example is  another div call called   <div class='uiButton-Lable">Packages</div>.  If this is not the solution to use then any recommendation is greatly appreciated. 



;~ Wait for the site to load
;locate Mail button
Local $oMails = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "Div")
For $oMail in $oMails
    ;~Check for mail
    If $oMail.class = 'Mail' Then
        MsgBox(64, 'Mail found', 'Mail found with value: ' & $oMail.InnerText)
        _IEAction($oMail, 'click')

Sorry i had a typo on my post.  I mean "I even try the full class name and It DIDN"T work".

Try this:

$oDoc = _IEDocGetObj($oIE)
    $oElement = _IEquerySelectorAll($oDoc, "#nav-bar div.uiButton-label", 0)

Ok I think I see the problem.  Once I log into the website.  The URL path name doesn't change so when its looking for the mail tag its not finding it because it still thinks its on the log on page.  This is me theorizing my problem. 

The URL is https://us1.aconex.com/Logon   once i logged in it remains the same but I see a whole new set of data on the page.  So if i'm understanding the script It's trying to read the the same URL which doesn't have the tag i'm looking for.  Is there a script to read the current page?   I'm not sure if i'm making any sense here. 

Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://us1.aconex.com/Logon ", 1)    So $oIE = https://us1.aconex.com/Logon

I see a few problems with your code :

1- _IELoadWait($oIE) may not wait for all portions of the page to be loaded.  It is possible (I saw that before) that partial page is displayed and some other will be shown later.  So what you need to do is look at a specific element that is appearing only when the full page is loaded.  Just create a loop that is searching for it.

2- If $oMail.class = 'Mail' Then is wrong based on the DOM you posted.  It is innerText instead of class.
