"Internet Explorer cannot display" limbo

Recommended Posts


When I submit a form I sometimes get a "Internet Explorer cannot display" or something like "HTTP 405 Method Not Allowed" from IE and the script seems to do nothing after regardless of code.

I have tried

- getting the window title, closing the window, creating a new instance with another script to coincide, however the script still does not continue where it left off

Issue: The script seem to stop when there is an "Internet Explorer cannot display" or "HTTP 405 Method Not Allowed" and the like. Meaning, whatever code comes after the submit does nothing.


;click on button
    $oForm = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE, 0) ; Get first form
    $oSubmit = _IEFormSubmit ($oForm)
    _IELoadWait ($oSubmit)

Is there a way to get the page refreshed at an IE response like the above mentions? Note, any code after the $oSubmit will not execute..

Read the Remarks in the helpfile for _IEFormSubmit and set the wait to 0 and follow it with _IELoadWait($oIE).

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?
