Detect Button Click

Recommended Posts

Kash

Hi,

Using AutoIT i would like to monitor a button click. i.e. Whenever a submit button is clicked, i want to read value in one

text box and add it in a database along with some other parameters.

Is there any way to do it?

e.g. Whenever a button is clicked, pick up values from text box and call a database store procedure to enter values in Database.

Please let me know.

Thank you!

Kash,

I presume you are asking about monitoring an external application rather than your own AutoIt creation. If this is the case, you may find this thread useful.

Thank you....Sorry I was not clear. The solutions y ou ahve provided are for GUI created by AutoIT.

I need to monitor a button click event in IE browser. i.e. in IE browser when a user clicks on submit button, i want to read value of a text box.

Please let me know.

thank you..

Kash, you are wrong. The info Melba gave you IS for an EXTERNAL application.

OK here is what i want to do..

I have an IE browser window with title "XYZ". It has a text box & a button "Submit".

User of IE browser enters value in text box and hits Submit button.

After hitting Submit button, i want to read value of that text box and enter it in database.

this should happen everytime a user clicks on search button. i.e. Program should monitor Submit Button click event.

Once event is occoured, read value of text box and enter it in DB. I have figured out how to read value of IE text

value. But i am unable to monitor button click event and trigger program.

Below is sample code to read value from text box and insert it in DB..

#include <IE.au3>

Global $BAN

;This function will attach IE browser with specific title to AutoIt program

$oIE = _IEAttach ("XYZ")

$oSubmit= _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "subscriberId")

;This function will return value of text box subscriberId

$BAN = _IEFormElementGetValue($oSubmit)

;Code to run database query.

$conn = ObjCreate( "ADODB.Connection" )

$DSN = "Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};Server=XX;Uid=YY;Pwd=ZZ;"

$conn.Open($DSN)

$rs = ObjCreate( "ADODB.RecordSet" )

$rs.Open( "Insert Query", $conn )

$conn.clos

I hope this helps.

Regards

Kash

can you idle around and wait for the info. That means the 'event has happened

ie...

While 1
    $BAN = _IEFormElementGetValue($oSubmit)

    If $BAN <> 0 Then ExitLoop
    ; that means it recieved some data

    Sleep(100)
WEnd

; .... or

While 1
    $oSubmit= _IEGetObjById ($oIE, "subscriberId")

    If $oSubmit <> 0 Then ExitLoop
    ; that means it recieved some data

    Sleep(100)
WEnd
