IE Radio Button

13 posts in this topic

I am having a terrible time selecting and submitting a Radio button in IE...

I have read this: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=98859&st=0&p=710690&hl=IE%20radio%20button&fromsearch=1&#entry710690

Using this code, I think I have the correct form, here is the code I used, and console output.

For $oInput in $oInputs
   consolewrite(string($oInput.id) & @CRLF)
Next

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Warning from function _IEFormGetObjByName, $_IEStatus_NoMatch

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEFormElementRadioSelect, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

The source code looks like this:

</center>
  <div class="herror bb">
  <form method="post" action="/fishwrangler/my" id="app8138090269_form_4a7860e76da474951097713"><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_locale" value="en_US" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_in_new_facebook" value="1" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_time" value="1249403111.4478" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_added" value="1" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_profile_update_time" value="1244918738" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_expires" value="1249408800" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_user" value="1533592366" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_session_key" value="2.Yq1Iz3uxWaYkVDj9MVNsng__.3600.1249408800-1533592366" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_ext_perms" value="auto_publish_recent_activity" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_api_key" value="5d768d28d2f2bc00fd5c1e5bb66652c5" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig_app_id" value="8138090269" /><input type="hidden" name="fb_sig" value="7cf30373adcce37790943a9588b80e7a" />  <div class="pad">

<br /><br /></td></tr>
  
        
        <tr>
          <td>
          
          <input type="submit" value="Submit" class="inputbutton" />

Currently I have:

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, 2)
_IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, 3, "Option", 1, "byValue")

And its not selecting anything... and is not trying to submit anything.

I've read up on the help file, and I cause I am having a hard time matching the source code HTML up to the example.

Which radio button do you want to select?

The third one? As your second parameter is ID but the radio buttons in your code dont have ID.

The third one? As your second parameter is ID but the radio buttons in your code dont have ID.

The last one, I think its called "alt" Is it 0,1,2,3 so its the 3rd, or is it 1,2,3,4 and the 4th?

So this?

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, 2)
        _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, "alt", "Option", 1, "byName")

What you have would work if you used byIndex instead of byValue, or change the 3 to "alt".

You can try _IEFormSubmit, but you may want to get a reference to the submit button and then use _IEAction, click

Didn't work, it didn't select the button, and didn't submit. What else should I do / try? I am confused.

If you are confused, then spend some time with the examples in the helpfile for _IEFormElementRadioSelect first. Run them, modify them, figure out what makes your situation different. Then, if still having trouble, come back here with much more specific questions (and please read my sig regarding "Doesn't work").

Sorry, that was some frustration that was coming out there.

Okay, so here is what I have:

$oForms = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE)
        $iNumForms = @extended
        MsgBox(0, "Forms Info", "There are " & $iNumForms & " forms on this page")
        For $i = 0 to $iNumForms - 1
            $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, $i)
            MsgBox(0, "Form Info", $oForm.name)
        Next

Returns two things:

"Universal Search Box"

and

"0"

The search box is a standard search box on the page, so I can only assume that I need to work with the form "0"

So...

Reading the help file, and running through the examples, I have tried these:

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE)
        _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, 0, 0, 1, "byValue", 1)
        _IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
        _IELoadWait ($oIE)

        $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE)
    
        _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, "alt", 0, 1, "byValue", 1)
        _IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
        _IELoadWait ($oIE)

        $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE)
        _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, 3, 1, 1, "byIndex", 1)
        _IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
        _IELoadWait ($oIE)
        
        $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE)
        _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, "alt", 0, 1, "byname", 1)
        _IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
        _IELoadWait ($oIE)

                $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "Option")
        _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, 0, 0, 1, "byValue", 1)
        _IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
        _IELoadWait ($oIE)

        $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "Option")
        _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, "alt", 0, 1, "byValue", 1)
        _IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
        _IELoadWait ($oIE)

        $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "Option")
        _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, 3, 1, 1, "byIndex", 1)
        _IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
        _IELoadWait ($oIE)
        
        $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "Option")
        _IEFormElementRadioSelect ($oForm, "alt", 0, 1, "byname", 1)
        _IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
        _IELoadWait ($oIE)

So, mostly trial and error, but trying to figure out where I went wrong...

$oForms = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE)
        $iNumForms = @extended
        MsgBox(0, "Forms Info", "There are " & $iNumForms & " forms on this page")
        For $i = 0 to $iNumForms - 1
            $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, $i)
            ConsoleWrite("Form Info " & $oForm.name & @CRLF)
        Next

returns:

Form Info universal_search_form

Form Info 0

$oForm = _IEFormGetCollection ($oIE, 0)
            ConsoleWrite("(" & _Now() & ")" & $oForm & @CRLF)
            $oQuery = _IEFormElementGetCollection ($oForm, -1)
            ConsoleWrite("(" & _Now() & ")" & $oQuery & @CRLF)

Returns:

(8/8/2009 12:03:35 PM)

(8/8/2009 12:03:35 PM)

My questions:

1.) Am I even using the correct functions to reference the Radio buttons?

2.) Is "0" what I use for my $s_string Value, or what is an $s-string value. Help file says: used to match element - treatment based on $s_mode, but I don't know what that is in my example.

here you go:

#include <IE.au3>

        $oIE=_IECreate("C:\test2\123.html")
        $oDoc = _IEDocGetObj($oIE) 
        $oArray = $oDoc.getElementsByTagName ("input")
        for $element in $oArray
            if $element.value="alt" Then $element.checked=true              
        next

Just put the site name in _IECREATE

I still don't have it working... Man, radio buttons are difficult for me!

$oDoc = _IEDocGetObj($oIE) 
        $oArray = $oDoc.getElementsByTagName ("input")
        for $element in $oArray
            if $element.value="alt" Then $element.checked=true              
        next
        $oLForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0)
        _IEFormSubmit($oIE)
        _IELoadWait($oIE)
        sleep(2000)

Returns:

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Error from function _IEFormSubmit, $_IEStatus_InvalidObjectTypeC:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\fish.au3 (77) : ==> Error parsing function call.:

Am I supposed to submit the form different when doing with the object?

For submitting try this:

#include <IE.au3>

        $oIE=_IECreate("C:\test2\123.html")
        $oDoc = _IEDocGetObj($oIE) 
        $oArray = $oDoc.getElementsByTagName ("input")
        for $element in $oArray
            if $element.value="alt" Then $element.checked=true              
        next
        for $element in $oArray
            If $element.Value = "Submit"  Then _IEAction($element, "click")             
        next
