How to Increment the TAG position automatically

Post by zzzzzz » Tue Feb 24, 2009 11:47 am

Hi All,

I am not able to increment the tag postion automatically.

Suppose I run iMacro in one system which is having a list of size 2
say:
userName Address Action
---------------------------------------
AAA adress1 Update | Delete
BBB adress2 Update|Delete

So if we run an iMacro for the above in my system i can insert update and delete the values
correctly.But if we run it on other machine with a list size of 4 ,iMacro will insert correctly but will
update /delete the record in position 2.Is there any solution for this ? how to increment the TAG POS based
on the size of the list ,which is coming from the database.

Below is the code for the TAG:

TAG POS=3 TYPE=A ATTR=TXT:Update
TAG POS=3 TYPE=A ATTR=TXT:Delete

Can any one help on this issue.

Hello,

Can you post the URL of the web page?

In order to increment the tag position automatically, you can use a loop as in POS={{!LOOP}}.

Does it solve your problem?

Hi Marcia,

Thanks for your suggestion.But how to get the size of the list in the database (mysql) from imacro
before running an insert operation. Then only i can increment the POS by a loop.

Since i will be running an imacro in different machine ,the database will be different ,how to get the size
of the list which is on different machine.


Can you help me out.

You can use XPATH to reach the last address and then choose the next tag you need to use with the relative position (R=1 mean the next tag from my position)

Code: Select all

' Reaching the last update link, use CONTENT=EVENT:MOUSEOVER to click on it
TAG XPATH="id('idOfYourForm')/descendant::a[contains(.,'Update')][last()]" CONTENT=EVENT:MOUSEOVER
' Clicking on the next link just after 
TAG POS=R1 TYPE=A ATTR=TXT:*
