Fire javascript 'onchange' function in IE

4 posts in this topic

Working with IE and COM is very effective. Now I need IE to run a javascript function called by the 'onchange' event of a particular field.

Another way of framing the problem:- When I set the value of the field the 'onchange' event is not triggered; how do I force it?

If you're using IE.au3 and the _IEFormElement*Select() functions, they will call it for you.

Otherwise, get a reference to the object and use $o_object.fireEvent ("onchange")

Sorry, I know its a stupid question. But where do I find the _IEFormElementSelect function???

I've checked the helpfile, but its not listed there...

There isn't a _IEFormElementSelect function, but there is a _IEFormElementRadioSelect, _IEFormElementCheckboxSelect and _IEFormElementOptionselect function (I was trying to denote that with the * in the statement above).

Search the helpfile for those.
