Click a button in CefSharp browser in Windows Forms

I'm trying to click a button on a webpage (kahoot.it), and I already know that I probably need to use Javascript for that which is fine, as long as it stays with 1 line of JavaScript because that's easy to implement in WinForms. I don't have much information on the button, only:

<button type="submit" value="Submit" class="enter-button__EnterButton-sc-1o9b9va-0 kxpxeu" data-functional-selector="join-game-pin"><span>Enter</span></button>

Could you guys please help? There's only one button on the page, maybe that helps.

Answer

You need to write a piece of javascript code and run it when the page loaded.

Run script after page loaded

To run the code after the page loaded, you can use ExecuteScriptAsyncWhenPageLoaded method or you can handle FrameLoadEnd or LoadingStateChanged.

DOM manipulation - find element, set value, click on button

For the javascript code, you can use any of the available javascript functions. for example find the element using getElemenetsByName, getElementsByTagName or getElementById.

After you found the element, you can set its value or for example for a button you can click on it by calling its click() method.

CefSharp Example - Browse a URL, fill an input and click on a button

The following code, adds a ChromiumWebBrowser control to a Form. Then it browses google and fill the search box with a text and clicks on the search button:

//using CefSharp;
//using CefSharp.WinForms;
ChromiumWebBrowser browser;
protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)
{
    base.OnLoad(e);
    browser = new ChromiumWebBrowser("https://www.google.com/");
    browser.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
    Controls.Add(browser);
    var script = @"
            document.getElementsByName('q')[0].value = 'CefSharp C# Example';
            document.getElementsByName('btnK')[0].click();
        ";
    browser.ExecuteScriptAsyncWhenPageLoaded(script);
}

Example 2

In the following example, using ExecuteScriptAsync you can fill the search box with a text and clicks on the search button programmatically:

//using CefSharp;
//using CefSharp.WinForms;
ChromiumWebBrowser browser;
protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e)
{
    base.OnLoad(e);
    browser = new ChromiumWebBrowser("https://www.google.com/");
    browser.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
    Controls.Add(browser);
}
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    var script = @"
        document.getElementsByName('q')[0].value = 'CefSharp C# Example';
        document.getElementsByName('btnK')[0].click();
    ";
    browser.ExecuteScriptAsync(script);
}

Note: In your case, for kahoot.it, the script should be:

var script = @"
        document.getElementById('game-input').value = '123';
        document.getElementsByTagName('button')[0].click();
    ";
