_IEFormImageClick issue

15 posts in this topic

Hi there,

I'm using autoit to automate one send email function in Amazon communication website. After clicking the "send e-mail" button, the email will be sent. The source html code for this element is:

<input type="image" src="https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/G/01/x-locale/common/buttons/send-email._V47060560_.gif"  width="94" align="absmiddle" alt="Send E-mail" value="email" name="sendemail" height="20" border="0" />

_IEFormImageClick function is the function handling this special form element. I tried _IEFormImageClick function to perform the clicking button function, but the result is not same with manual click. The manual click guides me to another webpage showing sending email is successful. The automated click didn't send email and appears webpage going back. The return value indicated _IEFormImageClick was executed successfully.

The function I used is:

_IEFormImageClick ($oIE, "send-email._V47060560_.gif", "src", 0, 1)

I also tried _IETagNameGetCollection to get this image button object and then use _IEAction to perform click. The result is same with _IEFormImageClick.

Did anyone have this kind of whack issue? Thanks for the help!

Lou

These sorts of behaviour differences are typically caused by the element using more events than just an onclick event.

There is not enough information in what you posted to know what is needed, so if this hint is not enough, please post more detail or instructions on how to test and reproduce at amazon.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Thank you Dale. Here is what I want to do and how to do it in Amazon:

I'm selling some stuff in Amazon. After stuff were sold, I need send email to buyer saying I receive the orders bla bla bla. Amazon website has this webpage to perform writing email and then send to buyer. If you already sold some stuff in Amazon, you can search that transaction id and find one link with buyer's name. Click on that, you will go to the email webpage. One of the attachments is this communication webpage capture. The other attachment is the HTML sourcecode.

I'm guessing there is Java Script running after click this button and my automatic click can't triger that javascript.

Thanks for the help.

I tried to attach the txt file for html code. but forum doesn't allow me to do that. So I post here:

An INPUT TYPE=IMAGE element has some unique behaviours. First and foremost, it acts as a SUBMIT button. It also passes the coordinates of the mouse within the button image when it was clicked as form data (e.g. sendemail.x=23&sendemail.y=16). This is one possible reason for unexpected behaviour -- it may be looking for these coordinates and does not receive them or does not receive expected values with the onclick event is triggered by IE.au3.

If you can allow this IE window to be visible on the screen and take mouse/keyboard focus, the fastest solution would be to use _IEPropertyGet to get the screen coordinates of the button, use MouseMove to move the mouse to it and then use MouseClick. There are other less obtrusive ways to do this, but if this approach work for you it would be the quickest solution. To do anything else will require studying the HTTP request that is generated and the flow of the page when it is opened with the POST method.

Could you get the position of the image and possibly send a control click to those coords? Should still register being clicked at the x-23, y-16 coordinates.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Yes, that should work too.

Just understand that there are screen coordinates, client app coordinates and DOM elelement coordinates at play here. What is important is that the control here is IE -- "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]" and you'll need the client coordinates of the INPUT element (_IEPropertyGet will give these to you).

An INPUT TYPE=IMAGE element has some unique behaviours. First and foremost, it acts as a SUBMIT button. It also passes the coordinates of the mouse within the button image when it was clicked as form data (e.g. sendemail.x=23&sendemail.y=16). This is one possible reason for unexpected behaviour -- it may be looking for these coordinates and does not receive them or does not receive expected values with the onclick event is triggered by IE.au3.

If you can allow this IE window to be visible on the screen and take mouse/keyboard focus, the fastest solution would be to use _IEPropertyGet to get the screen coordinates of the button, use MouseMove to move the mouse to it and then use MouseClick. There are other less obtrusive ways to do this, but if this approach work for you it would be the quickest solution. To do anything else will require studying the HTTP request that is generated and the flow of the page when it is opened with the POST method.

Thank you Dale. I tried MouseMove and then MouseClick after getting the screen coordinate through _IEPropertyGet function. It works. But after clicking that send email button, another new webpage will show up. I need click one link in this website. I use _IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Seller Account"). It appears $oIE is not valid after using mouse move and click. How can I get the current IE webpage handle? All functions seem only for getting form, element object handle not IE.

Thank you very much for your help.

Yes, that should work too.

Just understand that there are screen coordinates, client app coordinates and DOM elelement coordinates at play here. What is important is that the control here is IE -- "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]" and you'll need the client coordinates of the INPUT element (_IEPropertyGet will give these to you).

Dale

With this method, I don't need activate the IE window. I think this is better way to do this task. I tried this function:

$x = _IEPropertyGet ($oInput, "browserx")
    $y = _IEPropertyGet ($oInput, "browsery")
    
    ControlClick ("Amazon.com : Contact Customer", "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]", $x, $y)

The $oInput is that button image. But the click event doesn't happen. Is there anything wrong with my code?

Thank you very much!

Try moving the mouse with MouseMove (see Opt to set the right mouse coordinate system) and see if it goes where you want it to. $x and $y will be the extreme corner of the element, so you may need to offset into the element (or look at width/2 and height/2 to move to the middle of it).

SendMessage + WM_MOUSEMOVE + x and y coords converted to Hi/Low, + ControlClick() after.

Or maybe have a look at MouseClickPlus() on the forum.


Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Right. My code works. I use screen coordinate. But the last _IELinkClickByText doesn't work. $oIE doesn't work after this click event happens. I need get the object handle of IE again. But how to do that?

$x = _IEPropertyGet ($oInput, "screenx")
$y = _IEPropertyGet ($oInput, "screeny")
WinActivate ("Amazon.com : Contact Customer")
WinSetState ("Amazon.com : Contact Customer", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
MouseMove ($x + 1, $y + 1)
MouseClick ("left")
Sleep (10000)
    
_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Seller Account")

Thanks!

So I still need activate the IE window by using ControlClick? What does Hi/Low means here? I'm a newbie. Don't be angry about my question. :)

Thank you!

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st&p=569301 Try that function, it uses WM_MOUSEMOVE + down/up.

If a new IE window is opened you need to look at _IEAttach... if it navigates the same window, the same $oIE should be valid.
