Hi All I am new to AutoIT, its community, and pretty much programming in general. After a bit of online research, I decided to focus on AutoIT as my first programming attempt as it seems quite powerful and amazing once you become advanced at it. I have read some introductory pdfs which where good, including from the guy I think who invented it. I also watched various sketchy youtube videos, checked out the forum etc. I have to admit it's a bit confusing starting off but I reckon if I just keep pushing forward with continual hard work I can only get better. My first AutoIT project has been to open Internet Explorer and automatically log into Twitter to save doing it manually. I plan to run this after windows start up via task scheduler. I am using the #include <IE.au3> UDF but for some reason about 20% of the time I receive the following orange error notifications at the bottom of the editor (pic attached). When it happens the IE browser just doesn't open but the program continues to run which mucks up the script. Does anyone know why this is happening and how it can be fixed? Also is there some other better, less error prone way, to open IE and automatically log in? I have tried to use the Get Object NAME and ID commands to insert the username and password (i.e. the xxxxxxxxxx's) but when I right click to use "Inspect element" there is no name or id. It seems to be some sort of java script reference? I am using Windows 7 with latest updates and Internet Explorer version 11. As this is my first post I hope I am following protocols, and if not, please let me know and I will improve. Thanks
Hi all, I'm trying to download a file as a result of an interrogation to a report server, this means I don't have a direct URL from which to download directly the file. I need to interact with the classic "Save as" dialog box To perform this task I wrote a simple piece of code I'm supposed to work, it could be summarized as follows Local $hWndDwnld=WinActivate("Download del file") Sleep(500) If @error Then ConsoleWrite('WinActivate' & '@error = ' & @error & @CRLF & '@extended = ' & @extended) ConsoleWrite("Wait for download file dialog..." & @CRLF) Local $hWndDwnld=WinWaitActive("Download del file") ConsoleWrite(".. found." & @CRLF) WinActivate($hWndDwnld) Endif ;~ waiting for window ControlSend($hWndDwnld, "", "", "!v") ;~ send ctrl+v WinWait("Salva con nome") WinActivate("Salva con nome") ControlSetText("Salva con nome", "", "[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:3]", $dest) Sleep(1500) ControlSetText("Salva con nome","","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]","") Sleep(1500) $filename="aReport.csv" ;~ ControlSetText("Salva con nome","&Salva","Edit1", $filename) ControlSetText("Salva con nome","","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]", $filename) Sleep(1500) $filename=ControlGetText("Salva con nome","&Salva","Edit1") ConsoleWrite(" --> " & $filename & @CRLF) ControlClick("Salva con nome","","Button1")It's based mostly on this post: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/134561-automating-the-ie-save-as-file-dialog/ What I'would like to obtain is changing the filename and the directory as in the two variables $filename and $dest. Instead I get the file named as provided by the report server and suggested at first in the SaveAs window and dowloaded in the last folder browsed, to be more clear none of the ControlSetText instructions in the snippet above work. TIA for any help. PS: the script is based on the Italian language settings for the WinOS, for the English language the "Download del file" and "Salva con nome" strings should be replaced by "File Download" and "Save As" respectively.
