_IECreate opens 2 instances

Recommended Posts

jnj

Hi all,

I'm having a big problem trying to run a simple login in a website.

This is a pretty basic procedure but by using _IECreate it opens two instances of browsers (1 remains blank all the time). I have checked the remarks on help funcion file that's very allright for Vista but I'm using WinXP with IE7.

I would love to stick to _IE functions instead of using ShellExecute, WinWaitActive and so on.

Any help on that would be very much appreciated.

Code sample

#include <IE.au3>

$user = "user"

$pass = "pass"

$url = "https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?.intl=uk&.src=ym"

$oIE = _IECreate ($url)

_IELoadWait ($oIE)

$uForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "loginform")

$uText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($uForm, "login")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($uText,$user);

$pText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($uForm, "password")

_IEFormElementSetValue ($pText,$pass)

_IEFormSubmit ($uForm)

I had to fix some typos in your code before I could run it. Needless to say, I cannot reproduce your trouble.

Please describe your symptoms more specifically because if this is not a Vista system, they will not be identical to what has been seen before.

Also, try your code on another similarly configured machine.

#include <IE.au3>

$user = "user"
$pass = "pass"
$url = "https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?.intl=uk&.src=ym"
$oIE = _IECreate ($url)
_IELoadWait ($oIE)

$uForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "login_form")
$uText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($uForm, "login")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($uText,$user)

$pText = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($uForm, "passwd")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($pText,$pass)
_IEFormSubmit ($uForm)

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?

Hi Dale,

Many thanks for your reply.

The piece of code was just to illustrate roughly what I have. Now, because I was using the company laptop I had security policies applied, once I removed it the application could run fine.

Once more, many thanks for your attention on that.
