      Hello!!

      first at all, Sorry for my bad inglish, im Brazillian.

       

      So… I need create a automated script that creates an IE object and handles the elements in web page…

      $ie = new-object -ComObject “InternetExplorer.Application”

      My problem is: I can create that object in all other pages, i can get elements by Id, Tag, Class, etc … but, in determined page i can’t. Looks like the object after addressing the page “$ie.navigate($page)”, that is null or empty.

      give me an error:

      PS C: \ Users \ thalys> $ ie.Document | get-Member
      get-Member: You must specify an object for the Get-Member cmdlet.
      In the line: 1 character: 16
      + $ ie.Document | get-Member
      + ~~~~~~~~~~
          + CategoryInfo: CloseError: (:) [Get-Member], InvalidOperationException
          + FullyQualifiedErrorId: NoObjectInGetMember, Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetMemberCommand
      PS C: \ Users \ thalys> $ ie.Document.getElementById ("abrirModalLogin"). Click
      You cannot call a method on a null value expression.
      In line: 1 character: 1
      + $ ie.Document.getElementById ("abrirModalLogin"). click
      + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~
          + CategoryInfo: InvalidOperation: (:) [], RuntimeException
          + FullyQualifiedErrorId: InvokeMethodOnNull

      if need know what that page, ask me.

      check if the page is loaded as expected.
      set $ie.visible = $true to open the hidden web browser.
