2 submit buttons on form - same name

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

Working on some IE automation, and I ran into a form with 2 submit buttons with the same name:

<input type="submit" name="queueType" value="Queue Immediate">&nbsp;

<input type="submit" name="queueType" value="Queue Overnight">&nbsp;

So when I call _IEFormSubmit, the site complains of the following:

An error occurred while evaluating the expression:

"#QueueType#"

I know there's an _IEAction function where I can tell it to click a button, but I'm not sure how to feed it the right button (I want it to click the first button in the list)

I got no clue how to proceed - any help would be appreciated :)

Use _IEFormElementGetObByName with an index...

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, the-form-name)
$oSubmit = _IEFormElementGetObByName($oForm, "queueType", 0)
_IEAction($oSubmit, "click")

Works great, thanks! BTW: I think you're the one who wrote the ie.au3 library, and you've helped me out with issues quite a few times. I appreciate the effort, as I've used it quite a bit and it really is the camel's nuts :)

Never would have associated it with a camel like that, but I'm glad you like it... :)
