Trying to focus (activate) an IE window.

Recommended Posts


I am trying to open and setfocus on an IE window.

The window opens as expected and has focus for a brief instant, then loses focus.

And the loss of focus happens only sometimes, occasionally focus remains on the window as desired.

; open IE, works fine

$oIE = _IECreate("https://ssl.accesstocare.on.ca/")

; These will not consistently set focus to the window:


;_IELoadWait ($oIE)

;WinMove($CONST_BetterAccessToCareWIE, "", 11, 10, 800, 700)

;WinActivate("Better Access To Care - Microsoft Internet Explorer")

;WinWaitActive("Better Access To Care - Microsoft Internet Explorer", "", $CONST_TIMEOUT)

IS it possible that focus is shifting back to my SciTE editor window when next line of code is run?

i think that you cant do WinActivate($oIE) becose _IECreate dont return anything from Title special definition. And youl need loadwait before winactivate

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("https://ssl.accesstocare.on.ca/")

_IELoadWait ($oIE)

WinActivate("Better Access To Care")

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
