_IEAttach issue.

Hey All,

I seem to have an issue with _IEAttach. Here is the code.

Local $winTitle1 = "Interface Search - " ; name of page
Local $winTitle2 = "Interface Details - "; name of page
If WinExists($winTitle1) Then
    $Hwnd = WinGetHandle($winTitle1)    
    $oIE = _IEAttach($hwnd, "HWND") ; This line of code causes the error            
ElseIf WinExists($winTitle2) Then
    $Hwnd = WinGetHandle($winTitle2)
    $oIE = _IEAttach($hwnd, "HWND")
    
Else
    
    $oIE = _IECreate($LoginURL, 0, 1)
EndIf

This is the error I'm getting.

>"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\autoit3.exe" /ErrorStdOut "E:\AutoIT\Work Scripts\Haystacks\HayStackst.au3"

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\ie.au3 (2674) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

Return SetError($_IEStatus_Success, 0, HWnd($o_object.HWnd()))

Return SetError($_IEStatus_Success, 0, HWnd($o_object.HWnd()^ ERROR

>Exit code: 1 Time: 0.987

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

ok i managed to get it to work by change my code to this.

It seems there is some problem when im using HWND to attach to the window.

$oIE = ""
    Local $winTitle1 = "Interface Search - " ; name of page
    Local $winTitle2 = "Interface Details - "; name of page
    If WinExists($winTitle1) Then
        ;$hwnd = WinGetHandle($winTitle1)       
        $oIE = _IEAttach($winTitle1, "WindowTitle")         
    ElseIf WinExists($winTitle2) Then
        ;$hwnd = WinGetHandle($winTitle2)
        $oIE = _IEAttach($winTitle2, "WindowTitle")     
    Else
        
        $oIE = _IECreate($LoginURL, 0, 1)
    EndIf

Anyone explain?

What is special about the browser instance you are attaching to? It probably means it is not a standard browser window. Would need a reproducer.

Dale,

There isn't anything special about the browser window i'm using, AFAIK. This only started after i updated to the latest version.

If i was using the code that causes the error i would have to reboot my PC to stop it, the error would reoccur after a few times of running the script.

No idea what causes it, but its not an issue as i'm using a different method now.

I don't know its its a bug in autoit somewhere or not but np for me now.

I'm getting the exact same error. I'm running my script (which uses _IEAttach in the same way) on XP and Windows 7. Works fine on XP w/ IE7. Breaks with the same error message on Windows 7 (64-bit) w/ IE8. The error seems to be non-fatal, so my workaround is simply to use _IEErrFunc to pause, ignore it, and return.

Same as Dale said before, can you post a short runnable script that will reproduce your symptoms? Without some code to look at, this is just Psychic Script-Whisperer stuff.

Strangely I didn't have this behaviour until today. I wrote a script that attached to my browser and worked fine just the last few weeks. Today it went nuts so I came along this thread and another one as well. I posted my solution over Might this "patch" probably make it's way into a next release of AutoIt?

This funny error only seems to occur on open IE windows not being a TopLevelContainer. I just check out for this.

Would make sense, I think... best to add a BugTrac for this though...

The bug report is entered, but there is still no reproducer. I won't be comfortable adding a 'fix' for something I cannot test.

Can you create or find a scenario where you can reproduce this?
