IE Form problem; form and submit element have no name

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Im making a pretty simple automation for Facebook, but I ran into a problem with a Submit button in a form.

The relevant html:

<form action="process_pillaging_results.php" method="post">

<input type="submit" value="Attack!" />

I was hoping there was a way to use an _IE function to submit this. I couldnt figure it out when I looked through the Help index. Im about to experiment a bit with _IELinkGetCollection(), but I dont have to much hope for this.

Any ideas?

Im pretty sure its something like _IEFormSubmit($oIE,-1) when there is no form to attach to.

That gives me an error:

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3 (1154) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

$o_col = $o_object.document.forms.item ($s_Name)

$o_col = $o_object.document.forms.item ($s_Name)^ ERROR

->AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:1

Im thinking it would be easier to just use _IENavigate()

Im gonna look up what gets passed when you submit a form, and just try to duplicate it.

Any other ideas? Or if anyone knows what gets passed when you submit a form that would help me google less, lol.

Did you try something like this?

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, 0)
_IEFormSubmit ($oForm)

Dan:

That seems to submit something, which moves the link along and keeps the script going.

However, it does not go to the correct page, so its not submitting the same as if I had clicked the actual button.

The FormSubmit actually did the same thing as an _IENavigate to the next page (ie. http://example.com/next.php) when it needs something like... http://example.com/next.php?submit=ATTACK

I dont know all the data it requests though, so I am unable to finish the link by hand =[

Is it possible to just recreate the form, give names to the form and submit button, and then send that new form?

I would approach it like this:

$sSource = _INetGetSource($oIE)

$sLoc = StringInStr($sSource, "method=\"post\" ")

_StringInsert($sSource, "name = \"submit\" ", $sLoc)

Hope Im still on the right track :x

Edit: The escape characters dont work, wtf?

Read the helpfile entry for _IEAction. Using this, you should be able to simulate clicking the Submit button.

I would love to click the submit button... the whole problem is that I cant click it through _IEAction() unless Im missing something? I pasted the html of the form and submit button so if you could show me how to do it Id love that T.T

Im about to experiment a bit with _IELinkGetCollection(), but I dont have to much hope for this.

Why is it you have little hope for that? It is the suggested way to get references to objects without ID or NAMEs.

If it is the first form on the page and the submit button is the first element in the form:

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0)
$oSubmit = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForm, 0)
_IEAction($oSubmit, "click")

If this doesn't work for you, check to insure your document elements are not inside Frames or iFrames (see _IEFrame* functions) and post your code, description of what happens and messages from the SciTe console.
