Help in Selecting the Radio button based on a Text

Post by jyotirmaya » Thu Aug 02, 2018 4:18 pm

I am using the below code for automation of forwarding some tasks, but I am having a problem, there are 5 Radio buttons in the web page and with the below code its automatically selecting Radio 4 button. But actually the Radio button changes its position.
For example
SL Name Button
1 A
2 B
3 C
4 D
5 E

The serial name is constant but the Name changes its position, for example at first A is on Radio button 1 then it changes to 5 in the next web page and so on. So if I want to use the Radio button of E only even if it changes its position then what should be change in the code ?

Code: Select all

VERSION BUILD=9030808 RECORDER=FX
TAB T=1
TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA FORM=NAME:fwddatailreport_f ATTR=ID:offRemarks_f CONTENT=The<SP>Applicant
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SELECT FORM=NAME:fwddatailreport_f ATTR=ID:status_f CONTENT=%F
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SELECT FORM=NAME:fwddatailreport_f ATTR=ID:officeType_f CONTENT=%3
TAG POS=4 TYPE=INPUT:RADIO FORM=NAME:fwddatailreport_f ATTR=ID:Id_f
ONDIALOG POS=1 BUTTON=OK CONTENT=
TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:SUBMIT FORM=NAME:fwddatailreport_f ATTR=NAME:Submit

(F)CIM (again...! :roll: ) for me to have a look...! :mrgreen:

But from a quick look, you probably need 'Relative Positioning', I would think... :idea:

Yep indeed, only Images are allowed to be uploaded to a Thread, and zipped Files, max 256Kb.

But did you try first the Sugg I gave you about 'R-Positioning'...? I only help Users who "really" get stuck after trying by themselves to find the Solution..., I won't be writing your Script...
Hum, never mind, will be quicker if I have a look myself indeed, ah-ah...! OK, upload your 2 or 3 Samples... (Can be in the same '.zip'.)
But you'll need to correct the ugly Spelling on "iMacros"... :roll:

Sorry but I am not sure about R-positioning because I am not acquainted with coding,iMacros is very easy to handle because of its UI that's why I am using without any coding knowledge. Yes further I will spell the iMacros Correctly :D .
I have attached two HTML files one with the Radio boxes and second without it, I want the 4th number Radio box button to be clicked always but it changes its position when a new page loads.

OK, a bit "fed up" of checking your Thread several times since 24h, "Ugly x3 Typos" still not corrected, it's WE, nice Weather, I have a Gig tomorrow, I'll check your Thread again on Monday... 8)

Yeah, no Change...! :roll:

(Pity for you because I did have a look at your Upload, and I had directly a Sol for you...., and it's the Sol I had already mentioned in my first Reply, but you obviously didn't try anything..., no Difficulty at all, completely straightforward... :shock: )

But OK, I'll check again on Monday I guess... 8)

Oh...., finally...! 4 days needed to mention your FCI and to manage to spell "iMacros" correctly, I won't go through so much hassle next time... :idea:

But OK, I had managed to have a look at your Site/Page before the WE..., hum, and you're "lucky", I still have the Script..., and, exactly like I had mentioned in my first Reply already, "it" works perfectly with 'Relative Positioning', with just 1 extra-Line...:

Code: Select all

TAG POS=1 TYPE=TD ATTR=TXT:SAKTI<SP>PRASAD<SP>SRICHANDAN(<SP>Addl.Tah<SP>)
TAG POS=R1 TYPE=INPUT:RADIO FORM=NAME:fwddatailreport_f ATTR=ID:Id_f
And you can make it a bit more "practical" by using a Var where you can specify the Name you want to use...:

Code: Select all

SET Forward_To "SAKTI PRASAD SRICHANDAN"

TAG POS=1 TYPE=TD ATTR=TXT:{{Forward_To}}*
TAG POS=R1 TYPE=INPUT:RADIO FORM=NAME:fwddatailreport_f ATTR=ID:Id_f
... And even more practical if you only want to specify a part of the Name, like only "SRICHANDAN" in your Example (instead of the full "SAKTI PRASAD SRICHANDAN"), by adding some extra R-Pos Statement... Full Script:

Code: Select all

VERSION BUILD=8820413 RECORDER=FX
TAB T=1
'URL GOTO=file:///D:/TEMP/iMacros/Temp/_Forum%20Cases/jyotirmaya/radio/2.html

SET Forward_To "SRICHANDAN"
'SET Forward_To "SAKTI PRASAD SRICHANDAN"
'SET Forward_To "INDIRA SAHU"

TAG POS=1 TYPE=TD ATTR=TXT:Official<SP>Name(<SP>Designation<SP>)
'TAG POS=1 TYPE=TD ATTR=TXT:SAKTI<SP>PRASAD<SP>SRICHANDAN(<SP>Addl.Tah<SP>) // (Recorded)
TAG POS=R1 TYPE=TD ATTR=TXT:*{{Forward_To}}*
TAG POS=R1 TYPE=INPUT:RADIO FORM=NAME:fwddatailreport_f ATTR=ID:Id_f
(Tested on iMacros for FF v8.8.2, Pale Moon v26.3.3 (=FF47), Win10_x64.)

There wasn't hardly any Difficulty, it's pretty "straightforward" and "basic" Functionality, especially for someone who's been using iMacros for 2 years now, I would think... :?

OK, enjoy...! :wink:

And, any Feedback/Follow-up...?, I don't know how many days later, I saw you checking your Thread and my last Post with several Solutions/Scripts a few days ago..!?

I was going to say as a complete-complete Joke that you were behaving like some High Caste "Dignitary" in India..., they all behave the same on the Forum, expecting arrogantly sbd to write their Script without trying anything by themselves..., no big deal, but still surprising for a Country supposed to be "High Level" in IT, but hum, mini-Check on your IP-Address, and oops, you are actually from India (I had not checked from the Content of your Page/Site), then OK, I guess the "Circle is round" then, I found my "Explanation"... :shock:
=> OK, enjoy the Script, and don't be surprised if I don't try to help you a next time, ah-ah...! :wink:

[But there is definitely "stg" wrong in that Country with "that" stupid Caste System, sbd may be some "High Level" Dignitary in India from Birth, and still be some "Untouchable"-like Low-Level for iMacros from their iMacros Tech-Level, tja... :roll: Everything is relative, I guess...! :idea: ]
[End of Rant, ah-ah...! Grrr..., I don't like it when Users don't follow up, only comforting me to not write Scripts anymore for other Users... :roll: ]

I am extremely sorry, I didn't know that you have replied, I was online in the forum after your reply but didn't check this topic. As I didn't get any notification after reply, whatever you said is correct, anyone will feel bad if after help he will not get any feedback. I am sorry for that. and yes your code is working, today I have checked this post while asking another question in forum, but you have already mentioned that you will never help again :(
Yes I am from India, but I am unable to explain here what you have said like "Dignitary India", High caste, arrogant, High level in IT etc but I am sure that you can understand the scenario if I will explain. Anyone will think like this if he will not get any feedback. I don't want my problems to explain here in public domain you can understand my situation once I will elaborate. anyways sorry again.

Oh..., well..., hum..., then forget about my "nasty Rant" then, yep, got a bit "frustrated" from helping you with your Script, actually even writing it which I very-very rarely do for other Users, and then not hearing anymore from you while I had seen you checking the Forum, but OK, never mind, glad you finally followed up, and that the Script works OK... :D

Then, tja, for some other Thread, you can still open it (in the correct Sub-Forum + Descriptive Thread Title + FCI mentioned + Script and URL and what you've tried...), then I can still have a look and decide if I answer it or not..., and I'm not the only Advanced User on the Forum anyway... :wink:
