Powershell Internet Explorer clicking problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am trying to write powershell script that logs in website, search, clicks, and changes/writes some values, but I have a problem with hover button.

    $IE = New-Object -ComObject 'InternetExplorer.Application'
    $IE.Visible = $true
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 5
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 5
    $HomePage = $IE.Document
    Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 500
    $UserName = $HomePage.IHTMLDocument3_getElementsByTagName("Input") | where-object {$_.name -eq 'UserName'}
    $Password = $HomePage.IHTMLDocument3_getElementsByTagName("Input") | where-object {$_.name -eq 'Password'}
    Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 500
    $SubmitButton = $HomePage.all | Where-Object {$_.tagname -like 'DIV*'} | Where-Object {$_.classname -eq 'SubmitButton'}
    #read-host -assecurestring | convertfrom-securestring | out-file C:\temp\pw.txt
    $pwcheck = get-content C:\temp\pw.txt | convertto-securestring
    $Credential = new-object -typename System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -argumentlist "XXXXXXXXXXXXx", $pwcheck
    Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 500
    $UserName.value = $Credential.UserName
    $Password.value = $credential.GetNetworkCredential().Password
    Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 500
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 5
    $Search = $HomePage.all | Where-Object {$_.tagname -like 'DIV*'} | Where-Object {$_.classname -eq 'search'} | foreach {$_.children}
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 3
    $Search.value = "XXXXXXXXX"
    Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 500
    $SearchButton = $HomePage.all | Where-Object {$_.tagname -like 'DIV*'} | Where-Object {$_.classname -eq 'ButtonGroup ExecuteSearch'} | foreach {$_.children}
    Start-Sleep -Milliseconds 500
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 5
    $frame = ($ie.document.getElementsByTagName("iframe"))[0]
    $Iframe = $frame.contentWindow.document
    $TicketNumber = $Iframe.getElementsByTagName("td") | where-object {$_.classname -like 'Text C  U3'} 
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 5
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 5
    $FirstPopUp = New-Object -ComObject Shell.Application
    $NewIE = $FirstPopUp.windows()
    $AccessIE = ($NewIE | Where-Object {$_.LocationName -like "*XXXXXXXX*"}).document
    #$EditButton = $AccessIE.all | Where-Object {$_.tagname -like 'DIV'} | Where-Object {$_.classname -eq 'ToolBarItem Left ButtonGroupStart'} | Where-Object {$_.textcontent -like 'edit'}
    #$EditButton = $AccessIE.all | Where-Object {$_.tagname -eq "SPAN" -and $_.classname -eq "Text" -and $_.innertext -eq "edit"}

    If I move cursor to that button classname changes.
    Button ButtonIcon Edit NormalState with cursor Button ButtonIcon Edit Hoverstate

    Problem is that script won't click that edit button.

    Log in, find, click (that search and opens popup window) works fine but I need few clicks more :D

    I can find edit button but clicking doesn't work.
