IE automation : tabs management

Recommended Posts

MonsieurOUXX

Hi,

I've got 2 issues :

1/ Elements not detected in a page when there are several tabs

Scenario :

Local $o_IE = _IECreate("www.url1.com", 0, 1, 0, 0)
Sleep(1000) ;I'm absolutely sure that this page has finished loading.
__IENavigate($o_IE, "www.url2.com", 0, 0x800) ;it's not the same function as _IENavigate   != __IENavigate
_IELoadWait($o_IE, 3000, 3000)
If StringInStr(_IEBodyReadText($o_IE), "expected text on page") = 0
    return $errorcode

The string "expected text on page" is not detected in "www.url2.com" when using __IENavigate (i.e. a new tab). That code works perfectly when I do the test with that simple code :

Local $o_IE = _IECreate("www.url2.com", 0, 1, 0, 0)
_IELoadWait($o_IE, 3000, 3000)
If StringInStr(_IEBodyReadText($o_IE), "expected text on page") = 0
    return $errorcode

2/ How to switch between tabs

I'm not sure how to handle the tabs independently after they've been created. The problem is that they're all designated by $o_IE. and I don't like to handle them by the potential title of the page in them (what if the page has changed? It's too inaccurate).

Is there any solution? for example, having each tab as an independant variable, just like we have handles when it comes to windows?

According to that thread it's not really possible.

Darn. :-)

Actually, the question here is different than the one posed in that post.

You can get a reference to the browser instance in the other tab with _IEAttach after the __IENavigate is complete.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
