IE.au3 form click

8 posts in this topic

Hi :P

I need to submit a form on a webpage using _IE.au3. I tried _IEFormSubmit, but it halted the script after submitting the form. The documentation suggests _IEAction.

Here is the relevant portion of the site:

<form action="ISAPI.dll" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="MfcISAPICommand" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="item" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="Username" value="">
<input type="radio" name="isBRT" value="0">
<input type="radio" name="isBRT" value="1" checked>
<input type="submit" value="Continue >">
</form>

Here is the relevant autoit code:

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 2)
_IEFormElementRadioSelect($oForm, "0", "isBRT") 
$oBtn = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, 5)
_IEAction($oBtn, "click")
_IELoadWait($oIE)

And here is the error:

--> COM Error Encountered in Action.au3
----> $IEComErrorScriptline = 1316
----> $IEComErrorNumberHex = 80020003
----> $IEComErrorNumber = -2147352573
----> $IEComErrorWinDescription = Member not found.
----> $IEComErrorDescription = 
----> $IEComErrorSource = 
----> $IEComErrorHelpFile = 
----> $IEComErrorHelpContext = 
----> $IEComErrorLastDllError = 0

--> IE.au3 Error from function _IEAction, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

I know my form object is correct, because the correct radio button is selected on the page. I've searched the forum and re-read the helpfile on this, but I can't seem to fix it, even though another part of my script uses _IEAction to submit a different form and it works. :)

Thanks in advance for your help

Please check the number of form elements after you call _IEFormElementGetCollection with ConsoleWrite("Num Elements: " & @extended)

My first guess is that you are trying to reference buyone the end of the element collection. Remember that the 5th element has an index of 4.

Ok, I changed the code to

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 2)
_IEFormElementRadioSelect($oForm, "0", "isBRT")
$oBtn = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm)
ConsoleWrite("Num Elements: " & @extended)
;_IEAction($oBtn, "click")
;_IELoadWait($oIE)

And console write returns:

Num Elements: 6

But when I use
$oBtn = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, 5)
with the same code, Autoit crashes with error:

--> COM Error Encountered in Action.au3
----> $IEComErrorScriptline = 1316
----> $IEComErrorNumberHex = 80020003
----> $IEComErrorNumber = -2147352573
----> $IEComErrorWinDescription = Member not found.
----> $IEComErrorDescription = 
----> $IEComErrorSource = 
----> $IEComErrorHelpFile = 
----> $IEComErrorHelpContext = 
----> $IEComErrorLastDllError = 0

I understand that IE.au3 uses a zero-based index, and specifying '5' as an index when there are six items should work, right?

Thanks in advance, again.

It is acting like something funky is happening to the $oForm object after the _IEFormElementRadioSelect call... perhaps change the function call to tell it not to fire the onchange event and see if it fixes it. Otherwise, see if you can post a full reproducer so that I can take a look.

I played with the radio select stuff but the error still occurs even with it removed.

Here is a full reproducer, as requested:

#include <IE.au3>
_IEErrorHandlerRegister()

;WRITE DOCUMENT
$oIE = _IECreate()
$shtml = "<html><head><title>asd</title></head><body><form action=""http://www.google.com/"" method=""post"">"
$shtml &= "<input type=""hidden"" name=""ISAPICommand"" value=""ItemsBySellerSearch""><input type=""hidden"" name=""item"" value=""0000"">"
$shtml &= "<input type=""hidden"" name=""Username"" value=""test""><b>Report:</b><br><table border=""0"" cellspacing=""0"" cellpadding=""0"">"
$shtml &= "<tr><td><input type=""radio"" name=""isBRT"" value=""0"">This listing</td></tr>"
$shtml &= "<tr><td><input type=""radio"" name=""isBRT"" value=""1"" checked>Multiple listings</td></tr>"
$shtml &= "<tr><td><span class=""help""> You will be able to view all listings before taking action</span></td></tr></table>"
$shtml &= "<br><input type=""submit"" value=""Continue >""></form></body></html>"
_IEDocWriteHTML($oIE, $shtml)
_IEAction($oIE, "refresh")

;SELECT RADIO AND SUBMIT FORM
$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0)
_IEFormElementRadioSelect($oForm, "0", "isBRT", 1, "byValue", 0)
$oBtn = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, 5)
_IEAction($oBtn, "click")
_IELoadWait($oIE)

Same error, occuring because of the _IEFormElementGetCollection method:

--> COM Error Encountered in test.au3

----> $IEComErrorScriptline = 1316

----> $IEComErrorNumberHex = 80020003

----> $IEComErrorNumber = -2147352573

----> $IEComErrorWinDescription = Member not found.

----> $IEComErrorDescription =

----> $IEComErrorSource =

----> $IEComErrorHelpFile =

----> $IEComErrorHelpContext =

----> $IEComErrorLastDllError = 0

--> IE.au3 Error from function _IEAction, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

Any help would be much much appreciated - I've been struggling with this for a lonnng time :)

Thanks for all the help so far, Dale.

Thanks for the reproducer. I'll take a look.

Hi Dale

I figured it out! :) A line in the HTML form is messing everything up:

<input type="hidden" name="item" value="0000">

Is item a reserved word? I looked into IE.au3 (specifically _IEFormElementGetCollection) and found this line (line 1316):

Just remember if anyone is trying to submit a form with an input named 'item', you will probably not be able to use _IEFormElementGetCollection with an index value. Instead, you should use _IEFormElementGetCollection to return an array and then define the form element explicitly in your code. Happy coding! :P

Thanks for the followup!

I've never seen reserved words documented, but this is not the first time it has bitten someone.

Now I can drop that nagging "gotta figure out syberschmo's form problem" ToDo...
