Extracting Javascript Source from IE

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I have a web page that I need to get some information from. I've been successful for any information that is actually part of the HTML page (table entries, links, etc.)

However, there are a couple of pieces of information that the server side has embedded into an external javascript file. "DebugBar" shows me the script contents, which is how I found what I needed in the first place. I can get the URL of the javascript source file from the document.scripts DOM collection. However, I can't figure out how to read the contents of the script into AutoIt. I've played with InetGet() but haven't had any luck. Is there a way to get the script source directly out of IE?

Thanks,

Rick

The scripts are not included in the data from _IEDocReadHTML()? Note that is not _IEBodyReadyHTML().

No, since they are external scripts. All I seem to be able to get is the URL of the script file, not the script text itself.

Hmm. I would have expected that to be prevented from working by cross-site scripting protections. But I'm not a web guy.

Here's some magic...

$sScriptText = $oIE.document.parentwindow.eval("decodeURI('" & $sFullJSFileURL & "');")
