internet explorer form question

Recommended Posts


i've got a simple question about forms.

I read the help files about g**gle and h*tmail forms, but when i tried to use it in the web page i'd like to test, i can't figure it out ...

here it is :

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate ("www.airfrance.fr")

$oForms = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE)

MsgBox(0, "Forms Info", "There are " & @extended & " forms on this page")

For $oForm In $oForms

MsgBox(0, "Form Info", $oForm.name)


$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "mesReservationsForm")

$oText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "aeroportArrivee")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($oText, "CDG")

As you can see, i want to go to airfrance webpage and choose a destination. Unfortunatelly, i cant figure out the name of the input "mesReservationsForm" ?!)

This is the first 'problem', the second one is to choose 'germany' instead of default country in the dropdown list.

It seems i must have the _IEFormGetObjByName right to make the next step _IEFormElementOptionselect ...

Thanks for helping.

Suggest you try out the "DebugBar" in my sig... makes it easy to find element names (drag the bullseye onto the form or form element).

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?
