_IELoadWait for Image

Recommended Posts



im trying to have my script wait for an image to load, and when it does, click it. Following the help file, i wrote some code that just ends up waiting for the whole page to load. the page takes awhile to load, so i just want it to wait for the image (it has a link on it). how would i do this?

My code:

$image="(Image URL)"

You can't wait for a URL, but you can wait for the image object to be ready... your trouble will be that the document has to be at least partially loaded before the document is loaded enough for you to get a reference to the image...

Something like this...

#include <IE.au3>

While 1
    $oImage = _IEImageGetCollection($oIE, image-index)
    If Not @error Then ExitLoop

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
