IEFormElementGetCollection

Recommended Posts

jdogga

Hi all,

I am using IEAttach to attach to an existing window that appears to have one form in it, with lots of links and a few text boxes.

Basically I am trying to find the object for the text box and change the value from 0 to 60 (for Refresh Rate).

Window info does nothing to tell me what element the text box is, so I am having a hard time locating it and I want to avoid mouse clicking like the plague because window size/resolution changes.

I have tried multiple things to get a collection of all the elements, but with no success.

Here is my code that successfully attaches to the window.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

jdogga

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IEAttach ("AnyQueue", "embedded")
$sMyString = "Host"
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink in $oLinks
    $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText")
    If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then
       ;_IEAction($oLink, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

$oForms = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE)
MsgBox(0, "Forms Info", "There are " & @extended & " forms on this page")
For $oForm In $oForms
    MsgBox(0, "Form Info", $oForm.name)
;$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetCollection ($oForm, 1)
    
Next

Oops mods... my bad I think this should go under general support not GUI support. Can you move it for me?

I don't see a button to do that, thanks!

An update... looks like the text box I am trying to update is in a table... now the question is how to update the value and press enter.

Here is the source I found:

<input name=arrate size=2 maxlength=3 value="60" type=text>

Basically I want to change the value to 60 (from 0) and hit enter.

$oFormElement = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "arrate")

then use _IEFormElementSetValue

Thanks Dale! You are the man!

Here is the final code that I used:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IEAttach ("AnyQueue", "embedded")
$sMyString = "Host"
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink in $oLinks
    $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText")
    If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then
       ;_IEAction($oLink, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

$oFormElement = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "arrate")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oFormElement, "60")
_IEAction ($oFormElement, "focus")
Send("{ENTER}")
