IE fileuploader

Recommended Posts


I have written a autoit script that can upload a file from pc, however it seems not work, following is my code:

$objIE = objCreate("InternetExplorer.Application") 

$objIE.Navigate("webpage address")

    While $objIE.Busy 



    While $objIE.ReadyState <> 4 



    With $objIE.document.forms("name of the form")

       .ctl00_MainContentPlaceHolder_Region1_Uploader_FileUploader.value = "C:\autotest.CAB"



For some reason I have to use the createobject function instead of using IE.au3 functions. Can any one tell me how to make it work? Thanks a lot! :P

Yes you can use IE.au3 the function for it are

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("Webpage Address")

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "Name of the Form")
$oUpload = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "ctl00_MainContentPlaceHolder_UploadButton")
$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "ctl00_MainContentPlaceHolder_Region1_Uploader_FileUploader")
_IEFormElementSetValue($oQuery, "C:\autotest.CAB")
_IEAction($oUpload, "click")

I have tried that but there seems to be some errors and somehow it does not work, the code I use is as follows:

#include <IE.au3>
$objIE = objCreate("InternetExplorer.Application.1")
 $objIE.Navigate("web page address")
$oForm2 = _IEFormGetObjByName($objIE, "aspnetForm")
$oUpload = _IEFormGetObjByName($objIE, "ctl00_MainContentPlaceHolder_UploadButton")
$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm2,
_IEFormElementSetValue($oQuery, "C:\RM_x32.CAB")
_IEAction($oUpload, "click")

the error message is

--> IE.au3 V2.3-1 Warning from function _IEFormGetObjByName, $_IEStatus_NoMatch

--> IE.au3 V2.3-1 Error from function _IEFormElementSetValue, $_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType (Browser securuty prevents SetValue of TYPE=FILE)

--> IE.au3 V2.3-1 Error from function _IEAction, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

I don't know why it says this :P
