Cannot use _IEFormImageClick to click image

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am working with a form where there is only an image to click on to get to the next page. Here is the code:

$oForms = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE)
ConsoleWrite("Forms Info - there are: " & $iNumForms & " forms on this page" & @CRLF)
For $i = 0 to $iNumForms - 1
 $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, $i)
 ConsoleWrite("Form Info: " & $oForm.name & @CRLF)
 $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oForm)
 $iNumLinks = @extended
 ConsoleWrite("Link Info: " & $iNumLinks & " links found" & @CRLF)
 For $oLink In $oLinks
  ConsoleWrite("Link Info: " & $oLink.href & @CRLF)
 Next

In both cases the result is:

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Warning from function _IEFormImageClick, $_IEStatus_NoMatch

There are a number of images on the page and they all have

/tang/bug.gif
as their property - so trying to refer to that instead is not an option.

Would appreciate suggestions on alternatives to try.

Thanks

_IEFormImageClick is intended for a very specific element type of <INPUT TYPE=IMAGE> THat is not what you have here.

You'll want to use _IEImgClick instead.

Dale,

Thanks for responding.

Have tried

$Status = _IEImgClick($oIE,"http://myaccount1.broadbandsolutions.com.au:7001/resources/smile/online_time_32.png","src")
$Status = _IEImgClick($oIE,"online_time_32.png","name")

Both result in the following

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Warning from function _IEImgClick, $_IEStatus_NoMatch

Have also had a look at the source code for the page, and it seems that the "link" to the next page is somehow generated dynamically on the fly - and it will not be possible (as a 'quick & dirty' workaround) to search the HTML and find the URL that I need.

I will either need to figure out how to click on the image using IE.UDF or some ugly mouse-move/mouse-click approach

Suggest you use DebugBar see my sig). It will quickly show you the source for the image even if it is dynamically generated.

p.s. Also be careful there are no frames and if so, see the _IEFrame* functions

Finally got this to work!

This code shows that for some silly reason the Web site uses the same URL for all the images.

$oImgs = _IEImgGetCollection($oIE)
$iNumImg = @extended
ConsoleWrite("There are " & $iNumImg & " images on the page" & @CRLF)
For $oImg in $oImgs
ConsoleWrite("Img Info - src = " & $oImg.src & @CRLF)
Next

@Dale, thanks again for your help.
