_IEFormElementCheckBoxSelect not working!

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

Im trying to automate some things on the yellowpages.com website. But I get to a point where Im trying to check a checkbox but it doesnt work.

To know what Im talking about please go to www.yellowpages.com. In the "FIND" text field, type "restaurants" and in the "LOCATION" text field, type "GA". Once you hit "FIND", you will find a checkbox labeled "Check All".

I would like to check that box, I've tried all sorts of things but I cant get it to work. Can anyone please help? Here's my code so far.

Thanks,

#include <IE.au3>

$category = "restaurants"
$state = "GA"


$oIE = _IECreate ("www.yellowpages.com")
_IELoadWait($oIE)

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, 0)

$oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "search_terms")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oText, $category)

$oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "geo_location_terms")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oText, $state)

_IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
_IELoadWait($oIE)

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE,3)
$oQuery = _IEGetObjByName ($oForm, "all")
MsgBox(0,"",$oQuery.name)
_IEFormElementCheckBoxSelect($oForm,16,"all",1,"byIndex")

Sorry, that is an open bug in the CheckBoxSelect function when there is only a single box in a set.

Here is a workaround:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach("Looking for restaurants")
$oBox = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "all")
_IEAction($oBox, "click")

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?
