I am wondering why my code does not work on this site in particular. I would like to be able to have it press “Download” in order to initiate the process for downloading an .xls file. However, it does not and I am unable to figure it out.
Public IE As InternetExplorer Public Sub Main() Call InitiateIE IE.navigate ("https://www.auction.com/event/details/E-11142/?filter=reset") Call LoadIE IE.Document.getElementsByClassName("button-root_button_jzfF button-role-default_button_3iu5 button-is-medium_button_3vqd navigation-btn_styles_M1TS download-inventory-btn_styles_3ytA navigation-container-element_styles_3MZ0")(0).Click Call LoadIE IE.Quit End Sub Private Sub InitiateIE() Set IE = New InternetExplorer IE.Visible = True End Sub Private Sub LoadIE(Optional BufferTime As Long = 1000) Do While IE.Busy Loop Do Until IE.Document.ReadyState = "complete" Or IE.Document.ReadyState = "interactive" Loop End Sub
As an aside I would go with an attribute = value CSS selector btw
Selenium Basic with Chrome:
Option Explicit Public Sub GetDownload() 'VBE > Tools > References > Selenium Type Library 'Requires latest chrome browser and chrome driver 'Chrome driver containing folder must be on environmental path 'Download selenium https://github.com/florentbr/SeleniumBasic/releases/tag/v184.108.40.206 Dim d As WebDriver Set d = New ChromeDriver Const URL = "https://www.auction.com/event/details/E-11142/?filter=reset" With d .Start "Chrome" .get URL .FindElementByCss("[data-elm-id='event_details_download_auction_inventory']").Click .Quit End With End Sub
Environmental path – the driver must sit in a folder which is on this path.
