IE and span problem

Recommended Posts

Champak

I want to get a specific name - "word" - within certain classes in a web page. The span name with the "*******" beside it is what I'm trying to capture; the "BetterLevel2" which is always the 5 span into the TD (The stars aren't actually in the web page). There are a bunch of these on the page and that span name, the one before and after it varies from td to td.

So how do I extract the name in that span? ....if I haven't been clear let me know.

<td class="Division">
                <a href="Division.html" class="DivisionLink">
                    <span class="DivisionSection">  
                        <span class="Area">
                            <span class="Land4s">
                                <span class="BetterLevel2">*******
                                    <span class="Level4">
                                        4.6     
                                    </span>
                                </span>
                            </span>
                        </span>
                    </span>
                </a>
            </td>

Nothing in what you pasted has a "name". The elements have a "class" (which is actually a property called .className) so there is confusion here. I don't know what you are referring to as "word". What are you trying to retrieve?

Dale

p.s. your solution will probably involve _IETagNameGetCollection or _IETableWriteToArray

Yes class name is what I'm trying to retrieve...the 4th one in in each td. I've been fiddling around with _IETagNameGetCollection and _IETableWriteToArray for a while before making the post, but kept coming up with nothing.

EDIT:

To be clear, I get the text that is visible on the web page and not the classname.

OK I partially figured out what I need, I got the class names in the span tags using

$oElements = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "span")
For $oElement In $oElements
    ConsoleWrite( "Name: " & $oElement.className & @CR)
Next

This gives me ALL of the span tags. Generally it would be easy to parse this if what I was looking for was the same name or in a precise spot that I can count from the beginning. But the only way I can get the exact classNames that I want is to figure out how to get the 3rd tag within the specific tag/className "DivisionSection", or the 4th className within the td name "Division". How do I do this?

Study this:

$oElements = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "span")
For $oElement In $oElements
    ConsoleWrite( "Name: " & $oElement.className & @CR)
    If String($oElement.className) = "DivisionSection" Then
        $oBingo = _IETagnameGetCollection($oElement, "span", 2) ; get 3rd nested span
        ConsoleWrite("Here it is: " & $oBingo.classname & @CR)
    EndIf
Next

Damn it, you beat me back:). The following is what I came up with, but I'm definitely going to use yours instead, MUCH neater. Thanks for your help.

$oTDSearch0 = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "TD")
$i = 0
For $oTDSearch1 In $oTDSearch0
    $i += 1
    If $oTDSearch1.className = "Division"  Then
        $oSpanSearch0 = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "TD", $i - 1)
        $oSpanSearch0 = _IETagNameGetCollection($oSpanSearch0, "SPAN")
        $j = 0
        For $oSpanFind In $oSpanSearch0
            $j += 1
            ConsoleWrite("!====Tagname: " & $oSpanFind.tagname & " AND " & "Name: " & $oSpanFind.className & @CR)
            If $j = 4 Then ConsoleWrite("+TARGET=================================" & $oSpanFind.className & @CRLF & @CRLF);MsgBox(0,0,$oElementa.className)
        Next
    EndIf
Next
