How to find the type of a IE form object?

Recommended Posts

muhmuuh

Hello friends!

I haven't visited the forum for a long time. Hope everything is still running fine. Bad news is that I opened the forum because I have a problem :)

I want to find out what type is a IE form object and more specific I want to know if it is a input text field.

Fore example

$ob=_IEGetObjById($ie, "someid")
and I want to know if $ob is a input text field.

Thank you for your time!

Have a nice day!


I ran. I ran until my muscles burned and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

$sType = $ob.type

Hi Dale!

Happy to see you again

I already tried that and here's what I got

(15) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.: 
$f=_IEGetObjById($ie, "someid")
MsgBox(0, "asds", $f.name);this works
MsgBox(0, "asds", $f.type) 
MsgBox(0, "asds", $f.type^ ERROR

I ran. I ran until my muscles burned and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

The it is likely you are being fooled by the object you are referencing. Do some troubleshooting like this:

_IEErrorHandlerRegister()
$ob=_IEGetObjById($ie, "someid")
ConsoleWrite(ObjName($ob) & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($ob, "outerhtml") & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($ob.type)
