Parsing HTML Form with IE.au3

Recommended Posts

TomTJ

Hello

I'm trying to parse a html form file with ie.au3. I got the following problem: some tag do not have neither name nor type.

<FIELDSET class=defaut >

......

</FIELDSET >

with:

$oProfile = _IEFormGetCollection ($oFrame,0)

$oElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oProfile)

For $oElement In $oElements

MsgBox(0, "Tag Names", "Tag: " & $oElement.name )

Next

I get an error when I try to read the name of the "Fieldset" tag... Do you have an idea to avoid this error?

Thx

Tom

You pulled a Frame object and then tried to enumerate objects from a Form (not the same thing). Have you examined the object with DebugBar or a similar DOM inspector? I think you'll find you need more of the path to the object. What does the error in the SciTE console say? Something about $oProfile not being a valid object for use in _IEFormElementGetCollection()?

Demo:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IE_Example("FrameSet")
$oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE, 0); Get first frame
$colElements = _IEFormElementGetCollection($oFrame)

Output:

--> IE.au3 V2.3-1 Error from function _IEFormElementGetCollection, $_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType

Thx for your answer.

The only problem I have is a "name" tag problem.

If I change

<FIELDSET class=defaut >

to

<FIELDSET class=defaut name=test>

I get: $oElement.name -> "test"

But I get the same error with $oElement.type since type is not defined in the HTML tag. I will try your trick with the debugger tonight...

What are you actually trying to do?

FIELDSET is an HTML tag, but it is an odd one. It shows up as part of a FormElement collection, but it has no .type property as all others do. It is not required that a tag have a Name assigned.

Unless you really need to know about it, you may just wnat to skip it:

If $oElement.tagName = "fieldset" then ContinueLoop
