Html method on watir don't return the real html


#1

Hi,
I’m using watir to get the html of a page in order to verify every
single page on w3c.org but what I get with watir is something like:

Certus Games ....

And the real content is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> ....

Any idea how to get the real html content?

thank you.

Since I think it’s impossible to get the real html I’m trying to do it
using net/http library.

In my case I need first to login the user onto the webpage and then go
to the pages I want to get the html.
This is what I’m doing… but it seems to me the user can’t login:

require 'net/http'
require 'activesupport'
server="myserver.com"
port=80

http = Net::HTTP.new(server, port)
http.start()

data={":loginName=>"myLoginName",
  :password=>"myPassord"
}

resp,data=http.post("/login.do",data.to_query)
if resp.code=="200" then
  headers={
    "Cookie"=>resp["set-cookie"].to_s()
  }
end
resp,data=http.get('/MyAccount.do',headers)
html=data
http.finish()

Any idea???

Thanks.

If you are using Ruby 1.8.6 on Windows, try this code:

require ‘win32/api’
require ‘watir’

IID_IPersistStreamInit =
[0x7FD52380,0x4E07,0x101B,0xAE,0x2D,0x08,0x00,0x2B,0x2E,0xC7,0x13].pack(‘LSSC8’)

CreateStreamOnHGlobal = Win32::API.new(‘CreateStreamOnHGlobal’, ‘LLP’,
‘L’,‘ole32’)
OleSaveToStream = Win32::API.new(‘OleSaveToStream’, ‘LL’, ‘L’,‘ole32’)
GetHGlobalFromStream = Win32::API.new(‘GetHGlobalFromStream’, ‘LP’,
‘L’,‘ole32’)
GlobalSize = Win32::API.new(‘GlobalSize’, ‘L’, ‘L’)
GlobalLock = Win32::API.new(‘GlobalLock’, ‘L’, ‘L’)
CopyMemory = Win32::API.new(‘RtlMoveMemory’, ‘PLL’, ‘V’)
GlobalUnlock = Win32::API.new(‘GlobalUnlock’, ‘L’, ‘L’)

browser = Watir::Browser.new
browser.goto(“http://www.google.com”)

ptr = browser.document.inspect.scan(/:(0x[\da-f]+)?>/).to_s.hex
p = 0.chr * 4
CopyMemory.call(p,ptr+16,4)
data = p.unpack(‘L’).first
p = 0.chr * 4
CopyMemory.call(p,data,4)
dispatch = p.unpack(‘L’).first

lpVtbl = 0.chr * 4
table = 0.chr * 28
CopyMemory.call(lpVtbl,dispatch,4)
CopyMemory.call(table,lpVtbl.unpack(‘L’).first,28)
table = table.unpack(‘L*’)
queryInterface = Win32::API::Function.new(table[0],‘PPP’,‘L’)
p = 0.chr * 4
hr = queryInterface.call(dispatch,IID_IPersistStreamInit,p)
persiststream = p.unpack(‘L’).first

p = 0.chr * 4
CreateStreamOnHGlobal.call(0, 1, p)
stream = p.unpack(‘L’).first
if OleSaveToStream.call(persiststream,stream) == 0
p = 0.chr * 4
GetHGlobalFromStream.call(stream,p)
h = p.unpack(‘L’).first
size = GlobalSize.call(h)
buf = 0.chr * size
ptr = GlobalLock.call(h)
if ptr != 0
CopyMemory.call(buf,ptr,size)
GlobalUnlock.call(ptr)
html = buf[16…-1]
else
html = nil
end
end

puts html

It’s working!!! Thanks a lot.

Since I’m not using the last Watir version I changed Watir::Browser.new
for Watir::IE.new and it’s working fine.

Again… thanks a lot.
