_IE and Checkboxes

3 posts in this topic

I have been attempting to create a script that will check or uncheck all checkbox elements in all forms contained on any given web page. I am having trouble with the _IE commands becuase it seems that at least one of the comands used to accomplish this task must have a defined reference which I will not have as I want it to work on any random web page.

I know it's probably not that hard but I am stuck. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

D

_IEFormElementCheckBoxSelect is designed to do this, but as you point out it can be tedious for arbitrary pages.

A brute force method in this case can be pretty simple

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach(your-page)
$oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input")
For $oInput in $oInputs
    If $oInput.type = "checkbox" Then $oInput.checked = True
Next

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Much appreciated. I will attempt to integrate this tonight.
