IE Document Object InvokeScript Method

Recommended Posts

jbg1978

I am attempting to use the InvokeScript method off of the IE document object. I have successfully done this in AutoIT before, but the script I was invoking in the past had no parameters. In VB you would call InvokeScript and pass in the name of the script as the first parameter and if there are arguments in the script, you would pass in an object array as the second parameter. The object array would consist of the arguments that the script needs in the same order that they need to be passed in. I can't figure out how to do this in AutoIT. I passed in an array that consisted of the arguments, but receive the error: "the requested action with this object has failed" on the document object. Does anyone have any experience or ideas around doing this?

Thanks,

Jason

Func _IEEval($o_object, $s_eval)

Return $o_object.document.parentwindow.eval($s_eval)

EndFunc

$s_eval is the Javascript you want to exevute.

if you need a Javascript array, you cannot pass an AutoIt array... you can however use _IEEval to execute the Javascript to build a Javascript array and then reference it in your call to the Javascript that references the array (in the browser window context).

Thank you Dale. I'll try that, but I misunderstood how to pass the arguments to the Javascript when going that route. Can you elaborate on that for me? Jason
