IE Object ready-state problem

6 posts in this topic

I am using IE to automate a web page. When the page is scanning, the button I am after does not show (visible) until the scan is complete. However, it is found in the source.

If IsObj($button4) Then

MsgBox(0,0, "is an object button 4 ") ; **** this works

MsgBox(0,0, _IEPropertyGet ($button4, "readystate"))

EndIf

error...

IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEPropertyGet, $_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType

is there another way to wait until the button is "visible" or not "disabled"

Thanks

Applies To:

document, FRAME, IFRAME, IMG, INPUT type=button, INPUT type=checkbox, INPUT type=file, INPUT type=hidden, INPUT type=image, INPUT type=password, INPUT type=radio, INPUT type=reset, INPUT type=submit, INPUT type=text, LINK, SCRIPT, TABLE, TBODY, TD, TFOOT, TH, THEAD, TR, Element Constructor, HTMLDocument Constructor

Yup, it's supposed to return "Complete" if the button is ready assuming it's strictly an input element and not javascript's makeup.

#include <IE.au3>

Dim $o_IE = _IECreate('http://www.google.com/')
Dim $oElem = _IEGetObjByName($o_IE, 'btnG')
ConsoleWrite($oElem.ReadyState & @LF)

Visibility is not tied to readyState.

visible or disabled is an element attribute. If you show the button HTML before and after I could give you precise way to test. Without that, I can suggest that you use StringInStr on the result of _IEPropertyGet($button4, "outerhtml")

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?

Thanks guys!!

If you show the button HTML before and after I could give you precise way to test.

If I knew the HTML after I would know enough to do what I need. I am actually not going to push the button, it's just a way to tell that the page is finished.

I will test with your suggestion dale

Thanks
