How To Use _IELoadWait() Properly

6 posts in this topic

I understand the basic function, however could someone show me an example of using _IELoadWait() where if times-out over 30 seconds it will execute some function.

#include <Process.au3>

#include <IE.au3>

$text = ""

$oIE = _IECreate("about:blank")

WinsetState($oIE,"",@SW_MAXIMIZE)

_IENavigate($oIE,"Http://www.yahoo.com/login.jsp")

_IELoadWait($oIE)

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "login")

$loginName = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "username")

$loginPass = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "password")

If @error Then

MsgBox(48,"error",@error)

EndIf

_IEFormElementSetValue ($loginName, "XXX")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($loginPass, "XXX")

send("{tab 8}")

sleep(1000)

send("{Enter}")

send("{Enter}")

$oIE.visible =0

_IELoadWait($oIE)

_IENavigate($oIE, "https://yahoo.com/500?fcf=00B60000004R87z")

$text = _IEBodyReadHTML($oIE)

$fileName = "C:\test.csv"

I'm not quite sure if that's the example I'm looking for..

Is it possible do to something like the following:

If _IELoadWait($oIE) @error Then
    SomeFunc()
EndIf

Meaning, if it loads.. it continues.. if it timeout's then it runs SomeFunc()

Possible?

You're talking about a script of maybe 10 lines. What happens when you try it? Seriously, you're asking for other people to do something you could test in two minutes and learn more from anyway.

:D

There's no need to be an ass about it. I was simply asking because I've already tried to recreate a scenario where my IE would timeout and the page wouldn't load correctly.. however I can't seem to toggle that on demand. Why try and setup the scenario where it does that and waste 30-40 minutes, when someone could just tell me and save me the trouble and time?

It's a simple question, and I'm not that familiar with Autoit anymore..

_IELoadWaitTimeout will change the length of the timeout. The default is 5 minutes - set it lower. Look at the @error values for _IELoadWait to find the value returned after a timeout and test for it.

Regarding PsaltyDS's comment... yes, I would rather you spend 30-40 minutes figuring this out on your own. Please remember that this is a very busy forum and anything that gets posted may be read by hundreds of people... do the math. And it may have taken me 3 minutes to write this reply, but who is to say that my 3 minutes isn't more valuable than your 30-40 (actually, I already know that it is - to me. I only spend my time here replying in hopes that you will learn from it and ask better questions in the future... if not, I'll keep my 3 minutes next time).
