If confirm in javascript, how AutoIt deal with?

4 posts in this topic

I get a link, and click it!

but the original page will show a window to say "Are you sure to logout? Yes/NO",

this is maked by confirm function in javascript.

$oBtnLogout = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "idBtnLogout")

_IELinkClickByIndex($oBtnLogout,0)

MsgBox(0,"Title-1",@error)

;run up script,

; i will never get the MsgBox-Title-1

;until i click the "Are you sure to logout?" by hand!

why? how ?

Try restating the information. I can't understand what you are talking about.

It works like this:

1) Clicking the link triggers an onclick Javascript function.

2) AutoIt waits for the function to return a value.

3) the function does not return until you ack the alert

You're stuck right? You cannot use AutoIt to click the button because it is stalled...

Fortunately, AutoIt gives you another option. You can use the AutoIt Send (or ControlSend) command to activate the link without getting stuck in the COM call that initiates the Javascript routine. In your case:

_IEAction("$oBtnLogout", "focus")
Send("{Enter}")

This activates the link, but returns control immediately back to AutoIt. You can then use AutoIt Win* commands to work with the popup alert and Send or ControlSend commands to click its buttons.

There are several other threads in the forum that discuss this. You might search for ControlSend, _IEAction, focus and perhaps AdlibEnable to find them.

Thanks.

I get it!

BTW:

_IEAction("$oBtnLogout", "focus")

should be

_IEAction($oBtnLogout, "focus")
