Closing certain IE7 Tabs

6 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

In our environment we have Outlook Web Access. It has been requested that we write a script that will close any and all instances of OWA in the web browser at a certain time of day. I can get it to close down the windows if OWA is the active tab. I would like to be able to close certain Tabs in Internet Explorer 7, that have certain display names like "Outlook Web Access". Does anyone know how to do that?

thank you so much,

Sid

Look at the IE.au3 UDF functions in the help file, like _IEAttach() and _IEPropertyGet().

That helps, is there a way to close a tab, without closing the entire window programmatically?

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?

Dale answered the question already, but none of it will help if your users might be on Firefox, Opera, Chrome, etc.
