Having trouble with _IEFormElementOptionSelect

5 posts in this topic

I'm wanting to ensure that my script is choosing an option that exists, otherwise do something else if it doesn't. I seem to get no errors if attempting to select an option that doesn't exist. @error always equals 0.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!

#include <IE.au3>
$url = http://www.example.com
$oIE = _IECreate($url, 1, 1, 1, 1)
$oParent = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, 'parent')
_IEFormElementOptionselect ($oParent, 'Bogus', 1, "byText", 0)
If @error Then
  DoBogusFunc()
Else
  DoLegitFunc()
EndIf

<select name='parent'>
<option value='1' >Genesis</option>
<option value='2' >Exodus</option>
...
</select>

Great thanks! I went ahead and took a look at the function knowing that you were working on it. Here's what I patched to get it working for me.

I'm using your file version T2.0-5 dated 7/3/06, on line 1579 there is an EndIf. I inserted an Else with a SetError for invalid value.

It now looks like this;

1545 - Case "byText"
1546 -   For $oItem In $oItems
1547 -     If $oItem.text = $s_string Then
  .
  .
  .
1576 -       __IEErrorNotify("Warning", "_IEFormElementOptionselect", "$_IEStatus_NoMatch", "Text not matched")
1577 -       SetError($_IEStatus_NoMatch, 2)
1578 -       Return 0
1579 -     Else    ; my additions including 1580,1581
1580 -       __IEErrorNotify("Warning", "_IEFormElementOptionselect", "$_IEStatus_NoMatch", "Text not matched")
1581 -       SetError($_IEStatus_NoMatch, 2)
1582 -     Endif

I'm not sure if lines 1576-77 need to be there or a different error specified. I know it's just a band-aid but at least it gives an error back! ;)

Thanks again!

The real fix is actually very simple. This line

1547 -     If $oItem.text = $s_string ThenoÝ÷ Ø×vÚ!j÷JÚâîËb¢vuçZºÚ"µÍMM
ÈHYÝ[Ê   ÌÍÛÒ][K^
HH  ÌÍÜ×ÜÝ[È[

I have this in my working beta but have not yet checked it into the AutoIt beta.

Edit: BTW, the problem is that it always selects a blank entry if it exists. The simple edit above takes care of the issue.

Ha! I knew there was a problem in that IF statement somewhere! I figured you'd have the real solution. ;)

- Thanks again!
