Click buttons that do not have Name, ID, or value

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm dealing with a page that has a text field and 2 buttons, but neither button has a name, ID or value assigned to them. This is not my page, so I have no control over the syntax they used.

<button type="button" onclick="One()">Button 1</button>
<button type="button" onclick="Two()">Button 2</button>

On each run I'm going to click one or the other of the buttons, so I need to find a way to distinguish between the two. The following code has an output of "button, button" in the console. DebugBar just returns the line above.

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate ("page.html")

$oButtons = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "button")
For $oButton In $oButtons
    ConsoleWrite($oButton.Type & @CRLF)
Next

Any help would be appreciated.

Check the innertext property:
ConsoleWrite($oButton.innertext & @CRLF)
