4 posts in this topic

Hello all I want to set the the pulldown menus on the following url "http://verkopen.marktplaats.nl/select_category.php"

I dont' want to use mousemove and the pull down menus are located in a frame named "body

I have studied the _ie librarie examples multiple times but can not find a good solution.

Is there anybody who is experienced enough to help me out with this problem?

Thanks Martin

thanks for the repley:

I have created this little scripts with the help of the helpfile but it seems not working very well

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://verkopen.marktplaats.nl/select_category.php")

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "postform")

$oSelect = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "l1")

_IEFormElementOptionselect ($oSelect, "565", 1, "byValue")

What is wrong? (probely my skills) :whistle:

This site will give you a couple of problems before you ever get to the OPTION drop-downs.

First, the site uses Frames (use View Source to see). So the following mod to your code would be required once you see that the frame you want is named "body":

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate ("http://verkopen.marktplaats.nl/select_category.php")
$oFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE, "body")
$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oFrame, "postform")
$oSelect = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "l1")
_IEFormElementOptionselect ($oSelect, "565", 1, "byValue")oÝ÷ ÙIߢ»n«^+ayDKºÇz®¢Öèw*®¢×hzÉè¶f­razÚ)ëÞÚºg§µ©Ýzw(º{^®Æ¬yË«Ü«zËkËb¢{ajÚkz÷§¶Ê®¢×+¢Ë,׬r¸©¶)àªê-b·öYgyçm¢^Ø^Qè~Ø^²øuúÚè§jÇ©z¶­{§v"Ýz»hëm¢+pØlr¸©µ«­¢+ØÀÌØí½%ô}%
ÉÑ ÅÕ½Ðí¡ÑÑÀè¼½ÙÉ­½Á¸¹µÉ­ÑÁ±Ñ̹¹°½Í±Ñ}ѽÉä¹Á¡ÀÅÕ½Ðì¤

Then you can start working with the form...
