_IE Selecting A Radio Without A Name

5 posts in this topic

I'm trying to select one of these radios based upon a selection made in a GUI. I am trying to use _IEFormElementRadioSelect(), however I cannot use the NAME=listed here because everytime the page loads it changes to a random number. If there's any way to get the name by _IEFormElementGetCollection() or just to select it based on the _IEFormElementGetCollection() index that I have and would work just fine.

I've searched the forum a few times now and can't find any way to select the radios without names. Below is a part of the HTML...also if needed there are several of these Yes/No groups on the page.

<INPUT TABINDEX=5 TYPE=RADIO NAME=14924:599771169 VALUE=25 CHECKED>Yes score&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
<INPUT TABINDEX=5 TYPE=RADIO NAME=14924:599771169 VALUE=0>No score</FONT></TD>

It's never easy huh?

assume you have a form reference $oForm

$oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oForm, "input")

For $oInput in $oInputs
    If $oInput.type = "radio" Then
        $myName = $oInput.name
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

; now you have the name

Try expaining more clearly and using real rather than "freehand" code...

Sorry about that Dale. The page itself is basically an evaluation form. Has sections with a yes score/no score radio (which is the subject here) and areas for comments in many subareas. It looks like so:

Validation

oYes score oNo score <<<<<THe o's are radio buttons

Area 1 Comments

Area 2 Comments

Area 3 Comments

Tone/Demeanor

oYes score oNo score

Area 1 Comments

Area 2 Comments

Area 3 Comments

Area 4 Comments

...and so on and so forth. There are probably 15 sets of Yes/No radios like that and one near the end that is a group of 5 radio buttons.

What I want to know is how to use the code that you gave me to cycle through and grab values for each score/no score from my GUI easy evalutation form and make the score/no score selection on the website according to what the GUI says it should be. Now I'm using the code below to cycle through and see what to select where but I know there must be a better way...and it doesnt seem too reliable.

$oInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oForm, "input")
$i = 0
For $oInput in $oInputs
    
    If $oInput.type = "radio" Then
        Select 
            Case $i = 0 
                $myName = $oInput.name
                If GUICtrlGetState($CheckValidation) = $GUI_UNCHECKED Then
                    _IEFormElementRadioSelect($oform, 1, $myName, 1, "byIndex")
                EndIf
            Case $i = 2 
                $myName = $oInput.name
                If GUICtrlGetState($CheckTD) = $GUI_UNCHECKED Then
                    _IEFormElementRadioSelect($oform, 1, $myName, 1, "byIndex")
                EndIf
            Case $i = 4
                $myName = $oInput.name
                If GUICtrlGetState($CheckResolution) = $GUI_UNCHECKED Then
                    _IEFormElementRadioSelect($oform, 1, $myName, 1, "byIndex")
                EndIf
            Case $i = 6
                $myName = $oInput.name
                If GUICtrlGetState($CheckExpectations) = $GUI_UNCHECKED Then
                    _IEFormElementRadioSelect($oform, 1, $myName, 1, "byIndex")
                EndIf
            Case $i = 8
                $myName = $oInput.name
                If GUICtrlGetState($CheckPS) = $GUI_UNCHECKED Then
                    _IEFormElementRadioSelect($oform, 1, $myName, 1, "byIndex")
                EndIf
            Case $i = 10
                $myName = $oInput.name
                If GUICtrlGetState($CheckRaiseTheBar) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                    _IEFormElementRadioSelect($oform, 0, $myName, 1, "byIndex")
                EndIf
