can't fill body text in yahoo mail

3 posts in this topic

I'm trying to script sending a message in Yahoo. I can get the To: and Subject: fields to fill, but I haven't been able to put any text to the main body of the message. I can work around this using Send(), but the IE.au3 functions offer a more elegant and faster solution, so I'd like to implement this using object manipulation as much as possible.

Here's my script:

#include <ie.au3>

$yahoo=_iecreate("mail.yahoo.com")
$lform=_ieformgetobjbyname($yahoo,"login_form")
$login=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($lform,"login")
$pass=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($lform,"passwd")
_ieformelementsetvalue($login,"myUserName")
_IEFormElementSetValue($pass,"myPassword")
_ieformsubmit($lform) 
$button=_iegetobjbyname($yahoo,"composebutton")
_ieaction($button,"click")
_ieloadwait($yahoo)
$compose=_ieformgetobjbyname($yahoo,"Compose")
$to=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($compose,"To")
$subj=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($compose,"Subj")
$body=_IEFormElementGetObjByName($compose,"Body")
_ieformelementsetvalue($to,"abc")
_ieformelementsetvalue($subj,"def")
_ieformelementsetvalue($body,"xyz")

I tried.. but failed miserably ;) Do you use DebugBar? If you don't, get it now :)

I don't use Yahoo Mail, so cannot easily see this. These types of input fields often turn out to be iFrames however -- if it is, use _IEFrameGetObjByName and then _IEBodyWriteText to make it work. If this isn't it, reply back.

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?
