Problem with IE.au3 IEFormElementGetCollection

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

hi all,

first of all, heres my code right now.

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("http://www.captchakiller.com/upload_captcha"); Creates IE window

$oForms = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0); Finds the "Form" to upload the captcha

$oNum1 = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForms, 1); Finds the "CAPTCHA URL" Field
$intNumber = "none"; Sets the "CAPTCHA URL" to none
_IEFormElementSetValue($oNum1, $intNumber); Sets the "CAPTCHA URL" field

$oMessage = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oForms, 2); Finds the "Upload File" field
$sMessage = @ScriptDir & "\" & "captcha.jpg"; Sets the "Upload File" to @ScriptDir\captcha.jpg
_IEFormElementSetValue($oMessage, $sMessage); Sets the "Upload File" field

this is the website: http://www.captchakiller.com/upload_captcha (sorry you have to register to see the page...)

now to the problem..

it successfully enters the "none" into the CAPTCHA URL field but it doesnt enter anything into the Upload File field.. why ? i used IE-Builder 2.0.0 to get the Form Object Index #'s. (0 = API Key, 1 = CAPTCHA URL, 2 = Upload File one).

here are some lines of the websites sourcecode, if u dont want to log in (hope its enough code):

<!-- start main content -->
        <span style="width: 100%;"><a name="content"></a></span>
            This page is for uploading files.<form action="/upload_captcha"  method="post" id="uploadfiles-uploadform" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<div><div class="form-item">
 <label for="edit-api-key">API Key: <span class="form-required" title="This field is required.">*</span></label>
 <input type="text" maxlength="128" name="api_key" id="edit-api-key"  size="60" value="1A2EF0BC-7CEB-E159-8DE0-926DE5B6DB83" class="form-text required" />
 <div class="description">Please enter an API Key.</div>
</div>
<div class="form-item">
 <label for="edit-captcha-url">CAPTCHA URL: <span class="form-required" title="This field is required.">*</span></label>
 <input type="text" maxlength="128" name="captcha_url" id="edit-captcha-url"  size="60" value="" class="form-text required" />
 <div class="description">Please enter the URL this CAPTCHA came from.</div>
</div>
<div class="form-item">
 <label for="edit-file-upload">Upload file: </label>
 <input type="file" name="files[file_upload]"  class="form-file" id="edit-file-upload" size="48" />

 <div class="description">Select the file to upload.</div>
</div>
<input type="submit" name="op" id="edit-submit" value="Submit"  class="form-submit" />
<input type="hidden" name="form_token" id="edit-uploadfiles-uploadform-form-token" value="43fd6c314344b972c6f296f54db6e23f"  />
<input type="hidden" name="form_id" id="edit-uploadfiles-uploadform" value="uploadfiles_uploadform"  />

</div></form>
            <!-- end main content -->

Please run in SciTe and look at the message generated when you run your script. Also look at the Remarks for _IEFormElementSetValue. You may not like the answers, but they are all right in front of you.

nevermind i found it out with a little more looking around.

INPUT TYPE=FILE

is write-protected, IE forces you to use the "Browse" button to input the file.

but thanks for your answer!

Glad you found the answer all by yourself.

Too bad you didn't read the helpfule where it says:

Note: You cannot use _IEFormElementSetValue to set the value of an INPUT TYPE=FILE element. Browser security restrictions prevent this element from being scripted. See the example below for a workaround.

or look at the SciTe console that tells you

Browser securuty prevents SetValue of TYPE=FILE
