Using $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName with no name

4 posts in this topic

I'm trying to automate logging in to GoArticles to save time, and whaddya know, their login form doesn't have a name so when I try the following:

$o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "form")
$o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "email")
$o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "password")
$o_signin = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($o_form, "Login")

AutoIt just spits errors at me, not surprisingly really.

Anyone know if there's a 'default' name for a form if it has no name? Or any other clever ways around this little problem?

Look at _IEFormGetCollection, you might be able to reference it by index.

Otherwise, You can try getting objects for the different form elements using _IEGetObjByName and then still using _IEFormElementSetValue to set the value of the input fields, then _IEAction ($object, "click") to click the submit button (followed by an _IELoadwait($object)).

#include <IE.au3>

Dim $o_IE = _IECreate('http://www.goarticles.com/ulogin.html')
$Email = _IEGetObjByName($o_IE, 'email')
$Pass = _IEGetObjByName($o_IE, 'password')
$Click = _IEGetObjByName($o_IE, 'SUBMIT')

_IEFormElementSetValue($Email, 'mail@coldmail.com')
_IEFormElementSetValue($Pass, '1234')
$Click.ScrollIntoView()
Sleep(2000)
$Click.click
_IELoadWait($o_IE)

I'm gonna go check that out now, cheers!

I also found I could send the data using 'POST' which was quite useful.
