IE.au3 to click on a button with no name/id

3 posts in this topic

How does this work out?

This is the bit of HTML code that is relevant to the form I am trying to submit:

CODE
<table border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" align="center">

<tr>

<td class="defaultstyle" align="right"><label for="user_id">user ID:</label></td>

<td class="defaultstyle" align="left">

<input type="text" name="user_id" id="user_id" size="20" maxlength="20" value="WEBSERVER">

</td>

</tr>

<tr>

<td class="defaultstyle" align="right"><label for="password">PIN:</label></td>

<td class="defaultstyle" align="left">

<input type="password" name="password" id="password" size="20" maxlength="20" value="">

</td>

</tr>

</table>

<p align="center"><input type="submit" value="Login"></p>

</form>

so "user_id" is easy to identify, and "password" too. but how exactly do i click on the submit button?

i will think you're pretty clever if you can figure this out. :)

You do not need to use that button, you can simply use the _IEFormSubmit($form) function.

Since you didn't include the source the form or the button above, we cannot help with specifics.

TomZ is correct however, you may be able to use _IEFormSubmit. If the form has no name or ID attribute, you can get a reference to it with _IEFormGetCollection using an index parameter.

If the submit button doesn't have a name or an ID attribute, you can get a reference to it with _IEFormElementGetCollection also passing an index parameter. You can click the button than using _IEAction($oButton, "click") assuming that the reference to the button is in $oButton.
