_IELoadWait()

4 posts in this topic

Hi again..

So I'm writing an application that needs to paste some information into a box on the page, however _IELoadWait() seems to fire too early, and the paste then fails.

I really need an alternative way to check if the page has loaded, or maybe I am implementing loadwait incorrectly?

Func replyEmail() ;Replies to the selected email
    setStatus("Replying to email")
    setClip()
    attach("Outlook")
    $oReply = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "replycombo")
    _IEAction($oReply, "click")
    WinActivate("RE")
    WinWaitActive("RE")
    attach("RE")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    Sleep(1500)
    Send("^v", 0)
    Sleep(900)
    Send("{LEFT}", 0)
    Send("{ENTER}", 0)
    setStatus("IDLE")
EndFunc   ;==>replyEmail

Notice I put more than one loadwait to see if it will catch it.. however i still get the issue sometimes.

Heres what I have done in the past.

Use this to test my webpage a few times, to assess how many times it returns before visually loaded in browser.

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate("www.somesite.com")
$i = 1
While 1
    If _IELoadWait($oIE) Then
        ConsoleWrite($i & @LF)
        $i += 1
    EndIf
WEnd

So lets assume it loads 4 times

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate("www.somesite.com")
For $i = 1 To 4
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
Next
MsgBox(0,"","Loaded")

Im certain its not the greatest way, but has worked for me.

It isn't clear to me what line in your code is failing. What i would suggest however is insuring that you can get a reference to the element you want to fill before trying to do so or looking for another element on the page that only appears after the final load is done. With Server-side redirects, META Refresh and Ajax in play, there may not be a general way to insure the page has loaded to the stopping point you desire.

I will try looking for an element on the page. That is a great idea, thanks.
