Waiting for HTML code to change

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a HTML page which is like a 'loading' bar. I wan't to know when this page moves to the next page in a sequence, but the only differance between the 'loading' page and the one after it, is one line of code:

<DIV id=status style="DISPLAY: none"> -> "Loading page"

<DIV id=status style="DISPLAY: block"> -> "Next page"

The code for each page is contained in an "Internet Explorer_Server" Object. I already know how to get the HTML code from this Object, but is there a way of monitoring for the above change?

Is this possible ?

Thanks.

use _IECreate or _IEAttach and _IENavigate as appropriate to start... then

$oStatus = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "status")
Do
     Sleep(1000)
Until String(_IEPropertyGet($oStatus, "innerHTML"))  = ' -> "Next page"'

do more stuff

Hi Dale,

Thanks for your response. Sorry if my post was not clear. The HTML code I want to monitor is this on the first page:

<DIV id=status style="DISPLAY: none">

and this on the second:

<DIV id=status style="DISPLAY: block">

So is there any way to monitor when the 'style' attribute changes?

Thanks.

$oIE = _IECreate ("https://www.google.com", 0, 1)
Do
        $sHTML = _IEBodyReadHTML ($oIE)
        if StringInStr($sHTML,'<DIV id=status style="DISPLAY: block">') Then
            $x = 1
        Else
            $x = 0
        EndIf
until $x=1
