Need help using _IELinkClickByText

4 posts in this topic

I am unable to log in this web page using _IELinkClickByText for LOG IN button. It is not "clicking" it. Is there a flaw in this code?

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate("https://my.t-mobile.com/login/MyTmobileLogin.aspx", 0, 1, 0)
_IELoadWait($oIE)

$oUsername = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "Login1:txtMSISDN")
$oPassword = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "Login1:txtPassword")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oUsername, "0123456789")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oPassword, "password")
_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "LOG IN")

The word LOG IN is just text its not actually a link. Have you tried IEFormSubmit or IEImgClick or get an object IEAction using click

This is because there is no "link" to click. It is using javascript technique (onclick event) to activate the login using a special HTML tag called a DIV. BTW, DebugBar made it very quick and easy to diagnose this (see my sig).

Here is the important section of code:

<DIV id=enabledbtnLoginClickOnce onmouseover="java script:window.status='LOG IN';" style="PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; PADDING-LEFT: 0px; PADDING-BOTTOM: 0px; PADDING-TOP: 0px" onclick="java script: { if (typeof(Page_ClientValidate) != 'function' || Page_ClientValidate()) __doPostBack('Login1$btnLoginClickOnce','') };{ if (Page_IsValid)  PleaseWait('enabledbtnLoginClickOnce', 'disabledbtnLoginClickOnce', ''); }" onmouseout="window.status='';"><TABLE class=buttontable style="CURSOR: pointer; MARGIN-RIGHT: 15px" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 border=0>
<TBODY>
<TR>
<TD class=buttoncell><IMG src="/images/mytmobile/ph/buttons/leftp.gif" border=0></TD>
<TD class=buttoncontainerp noWrap>
<TD class=buttontextp style="PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; PADDING-LEFT: 0px; BACKGROUND: url(/images/mytmobile/ph/buttons/midp.gif) #fff repeat-x left top; PADDING-BOTTOM: 0px; PADDING-TOP: 0px">LOG IN</TD></TD>
<TD class=buttoncell><IMG src="/images/mytmobile/ph/buttons/rightp.gif" border=0></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE></DIV>

Stody this and you'll see that a DIV with an ID of enabledbtnLoginClickOnce has an onclick action that initiates the login. So, replace your LinkClick with:

$oDiv = _IEGetObjByID($oIE, "enabledbtnLoginClickOnce")
_IEAction($oDiv, "click")
