Button with no name

3 posts in this topic

Ok, so I started playing around with AutoIt and web sites last night. I have used AutoIt before, many moons ago, and started off by sending keys and lots of tabs, until I read about the IE.au3 :-) Just to set the record, I am not a programmer at all, so please be gentle :-)

With lots of reading and copy and paste and adjusting, I got to log into a website (www.everydns.net) and I got to update all the MX records on my domains (hosted with google pages), but this morning I wanted to extend my "program" to also add a new domain for me. On the login site I am using this code:

$domain = InputBox("Domain Name", "Enter domain name, i.e. domain.co.za")

$username1 = InputBox("Username", "Enter username")

$password1 = InputBox("Password", "Enter password", "", "*")

$oIE = _IECreate()

_IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.everydns.net")

; get pointers to the login form and username and password fields

$oform = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "login")

$ologin = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oform, "username")

$opassword = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oform, "password")

$oLoginbutton = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oform, "Submit")

; Set field values and submit the form

_IEFormElementSetValue($ologin, $username1)

_IEFormElementSetValue($opassword, $password1)

$oLoginbutton.click

I know it probably not very elegant, but it does the trick. My challenge on the "create a new domain record" form is that the submit button has no name defined. It looks like this:

<input type="text" name="newdomain" value="eg: everydns.net"><div align="right"><input type="submit" value=">> (basic)"></div>

So, I get it to insert the domain name ($domain = InputBox("Domain Name", "Enter domain name, i.e. domain.co.za")) but then cannot click the button called >> (basic)

It has gone from being functional to being a challenge!

Any ideas, please?

Thanks!

Braam.

Does it work with just _IEFormSubmit($oform), without trying to get fancy with the button object?
