Can't figure out how to click on button with IE.au3

8 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm trying to work with a NAS device that has a Web interface.

I can login OK and navigate to the menu that I want, where there are 2 buttons: Reboot and Shutdown. I want to write a script that will click on the shutdown button.

I have tried using _IEImgClick, _IEFormImgClick (which is the command I thought should work as the buttons are on a form: sdrbform, and _IELinkClickByText - unfortunately none of these attempts has worked.

The NAS device is not accessible from the Net, hopefully the source will provide enough info for someone to suggest a different approach to try.

There are so many ways to accomplish things on a web page...

In this case, it appears that it is not an image or a button or a link, but rather a <DIV> element with an onclick action that does what you need here (although I see an image with a link lower in the page... you'll need to verify which one is performing the action for you).

If it is the DIV, you'll need to get a reference to it and then click it... something like:

$oDivs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div")
For $oDiv in $oDivs
    If $oDiv.innerText = "Shutdown" Then
        _IEAction($oDiv, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

If it is the DIV, you'll need to get a reference to it and then click it...

Hi Dale,

Thanks for having a look at this. Unfortunately the snippet you posted didn't hit the button / <DIV> element.

I inserted a msgbox in the loop so that I could see what Tags were collected and observe the following responses:

Status Storage Network Accounts System Language (which are the main menu options)
Status
Storage
Network
Accounts
System
Language
Shutdown / Reboot System (the heading of the menu I am trying work with - rather than the buttons)
0 ( ? )

The trouble is I don't really understand how the collection parameters decides what tags to collect, are their other qualifiers I can use (i.e other than "innertext") that I can use to try and select the 'onclick' items?

Also are there any documents you can recommend that would be useful background reading, I'd like to better understand the "objects" (if that is the right description) that are available like "innertext" so that I can try and make an educated guess at what I should be trying. Really I have just been guessing with this page.

Thanks

VW

See if this works.

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "sdrbform")
$oInput = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "action")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "shutdown")
_IEFormSubmit($oForm)
If Bob's suggestion doesn't get you going you'lll need to help us better understand what EXACTLY you are trying to activate on this page. I cannot render it properly by saving the HTML because there are too many things missing. Try using MODIV2 (Google for it) to get info on the element or give us a screen shot.

If you look at the source the onclick event for the div you want to click is "does('shutdown')".

<div class="button_copy" onclick="does('shutdown')">Shutdown</div>

All the "does" function really does is set the value of the hidden input named "action" and then submits the form.

function does(action){
    var sure = '';
    if(action == 'shutdown'){
        sure = "Are you sure to shutdown the system?";
    }
    else{
        sure = "Are you sure to reboot the system?";
    }
    if (confirm(sure)){
    form1.form.elements['action'].value=action;
    form1.form.submit();
    }
}

<input type=hidden name="action" id="action" value="">

We just bypass this function and do it our selves.
