iframe problem with no name

Recommended Posts


I looked up the help file, and found there is _IEFrameGetObjByName function.

but Iframe that i want to using has no name, but an ID.

How can i get an object from IE IFrame using ID? instead of Name, since there's no name.

sourecode get with DebugBar is like this.

<iframe id=my-134 src="http://blahblahblah.jsp"></firame>

Actually, the id and name tags are not distinguished in the IE DOM. The only difference between them is that many elements can have the same name, but only one is allowed the same id. The function _IEFrameGetObjByName() works with either the name or id attribute. Demo:
#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _My_Example()

$oFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE, "iFrameOne")
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oFrame, "Hello iFrame <b>One!</b>")

$oFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE, "iFrameTwo")
_IEBodyWriteHTML($oFrame, "Hello iFrame <b>Two!</b>")

; Derived directly from Dale Hohm's _IE_Example("iFrame") 
Func _My_Example()
    Local $s_html = "", $o_object
    $s_html &= "<HTML>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<HEAD>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<TITLE>_IE_Example('iframe')</TITLE>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "</HEAD>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<BODY>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<table cellspacing=6 cellpadding=6 border=1>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<tr>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<td><iframe name='iFrameOne' src='about:blank' title='iFrameOne'></iframe></td>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<td>&lt;iframe name=&quot;iFrameOne&quot; src=&quot;about:blank&quot; title=&quot;iFrameOne&quot;&gt;</td>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "</tr>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<tr>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<td><iframe id='iFrameTwo' src='about:blank' title='iFrameTwo'></iframe></td>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "<td>&lt;iframe id=&quot;iFrameTwo&quot; src=&quot;about:blank&quot; title=&quot;iFrameTwo&quot;&gt;</td>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "</tr>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "</table>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "</BODY>" & @CR
    $s_html &= "</HTML>"
    $o_object = _IECreate()
    _IEDocWriteHTML($o_object, $s_html)
    _IEAction($o_object, "refresh")
    Local $oIFrameOne = _IEFrameGetObjByName($o_object, "iFrameOne")
    Local $oIFrameTwo = _IEFrameGetObjByName($o_object, "iFrameTwo")
    _IEBodyWriteHTML($oIFrameOne, '$oIFrameOne = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE, "iFrameOne")')
    _IEBodyWriteHTML($oIFrameTwo, '$oIFrameTwo = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE, "iFrameTwo")')
    Return $o_object
