Auto Googler

Recommended Posts


Im Currently making an auto googler.

what this does is:

*Navigate to google

*fill in the form

*press submit

*fetch the topmost headline

here's the code:


$IE = _IECreate ("", 0, 1, 1, 1)
$url = "Google.com"
      _IENavigate($IE, $url, 1)

$set =
$submit =
$get =

ive come to the place where im supposed to use the objget functions but thats not really where im stuck.

i need help with the Get function. i cant get it to fetch the headline anyhow.

would be nice to get this going.

thx in advance.

I might suggest speeding this up by dumping your query into the URL. That'll prevent a good number of bugs and will speed it up quite a bit.

You will need to sanitize the string you send, but that is fairly easy as there's code for that available online.

This is the one that I use, the sanitizing function is a modified version of one I found on these forums (unfortunately I didn't think to write down the author), but the rest is my code.

HotKeySet ("{F4}", "google")

Func google()
    Local $search = copySelected()
    If Not $search Then $search = InputBox ("Missing Information", "Search Term:")
    $search = sanitizeString ($search)
    ;This opens it in my default browser (I despise IE), but you can probably change it to use the UDF so you can pull text out
    ShellExecute ("http://www.google.com/search?q=" & $search)

Func copySelected () ;prevents clobbering the clipboard contents
    Local $oldClip = ClipGet()
    If WinActive ("ACT!") Then
        ControlSend ("ACT", "", "[Name:Connected Menus]", "ec")
        ClipPut ("")
        Send ("^c")
    For $i = 0 to 20 
        Sleep (10)
        if ClipGet() Then ExitLoop
    Local $clipStuff = ClipGet ()
    ClipPut ($oldClip)
    Return $clipStuff

Func sanitizeString ($string)
    Local $UnicodeBinary = StringToBinary ($string, 4)
    Local $UnicodeBinary2 = StringReplace($UnicodeBinary, '0x', '', 1)
    Local $UnicodeBinaryLength = StringLen($UnicodeBinary2)
    Local $EncodedString    For $i = 1 To $UnicodeBinaryLength Step 2
        Local $UnicodeBinaryChar = StringMid($UnicodeBinary2, $i, 2)
        If Not StringInStr("$-_.+!*'(),;/?:@=&#", BinaryToString ('0x' & $UnicodeBinaryChar, 4)) Then
            $EncodedString &= BinaryToString ('0x' & $UnicodeBinaryChar)
            $EncodedString &= '%' & $UnicodeBinaryChar

   ; you might be able to replace this next line with Return StringReplace ($EncodedString, " ", +)
   ; for some reason the replacement of & and was inconsistent on my machine
   Return StringReplace (StringReplace ($EncodedString, "&", "%26"), " ", "+") 

#fgpkerw4kcmnq2mns1ax7ilndopen (Q, $0); while ($l = <Q>){if ($l =~ m/^#.*/){$l =~ tr/a-z1-9#/Huh, Junketeer's Alternate Pro Ace /; print $l;}}close (Q);[code] tag ninja!
