Selecting a Combo/Dropdown with Javascript

5 posts in this topic

I'm trying to set a new value to the combo/dropdown AND

get the form/page to register the event

post-14453-1165053409_thumb.jpg

here's how the combo/drop is created in the html

<script>
var win = window.isOLC ? window : parent.makeDropdown ? parent : window; 
var dd = win.makeDropdown('status', 184, ['', '', 'Not Started', '1', 'In Progress', '2', 'Waiting for Customer', '6', 'Escalated', '3', 'Closed', '5'], 3, '6', 'Waiting for Customer', "window.ischanged = true; Syncstatus(true);", null, 200,document,67584);
</script>

this is the code i've tried

$oInput = _IEGetObjByName ($netsuite_oIE, "inpt_status")
$input_val = _IEFormElementGetValue($oInput)

MsgBox(0,"Combo's Value",$input_val) ;this works

;this set's the value correctly, but when the form is submitted the change is not recorded
_IEFormElementSetValue($oInput, "Closed", 1)

(no SEND("") please)

thanks for the help

It looks like you have dynamically created HTML on that page. Please use _IEBodyReadHTML to examine the source - the script will not help you.

You will then need _IEFormElementOptionselect instead of _IEFormElementSetValue

Finally, you will need the T2. 0-6 or higher version of IE.au3 (see my sig) to avoid a bug in _IEFormElementOptionselect that will always select the blank entry if you use byText mode.

Edit: mistakenly referenced _IEFormElementGetValue instead of _IEFormElementSetValue

-they're being tricky. It is in fact an input (not a combo) that i'm am selecting from. they use a down arrow post-14453-1178047499_thumb.gif (ddarrow.gif) as the input's background image.

-notice in the code below that the INPUT title="Closed" is using the arrow down background image and it has the class='dropdownInput'

-how do i get the page to register a change if i set the input to a new value? thanks

<span id='status_fs' class='nldropdown' style="white-space: nowrap;">
    &lt;script>
    var win = window.isOLC ? window : parent.makeDropdown ? parent : window; 
    var dd = win.makeDropdown('status', 184, ['', '', 'Not Started', '1', 'In Progress', '2', 'Waiting for Customer', '6', 'Escalated', '3', 'Closed', '5'], 8, '5', 'Closed', "window.ischanged = true; Syncstatus(true);", null, 200,document,67584);
    dd.setMandatoryBackgroundColor('FFFFE5');
    dd.setRequired(true);
    </script>
    
###HERE!
    <input title="Closed" style="background-image: url(/images/forms/ddarrow.gif); width: 200px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 229);" name="inpt_status" id="inpt_status5" value="Closed" class="dropdownInput" onkeydown="getDropdown(this).handleKeydown(event);" onkeypress="getDropdown(this).handleKeypress(event);" onfocus="this.select()" contenteditable="false" autocomplete="off" type="text">

    <input id="indx_status5" value="8" type="hidden">
</span>

.dropdownInput{
    background-color: white; color: black;
    font-size: 8pt;
    padding-left: 1;
    border-style: solid;

SOLVED!!

the page uses inputs as combo dropdowns. it turns out there were hidden inputs that javascript was changing when you selected an option from the dropdown.

SOLUTION:

simply change the value of the visible AND hidden inputs using _IEFormElementSetValue() and voila! it works!!

the inputs:

Index,Id,Name,Type,Value,Label,Size,Maximum Length,State

23,inpt_status5,inpt_status,text,In Progress,,,,

24,hddn_status5,status,hidden,2,,,,

25,indx_status5,hidden,2,,,,,
