Removing HTML code from webpage before loading

5 posts in this topic

Our radiology web viewer has a very annoying "feature" that if you are running IE above version 6 it will warn you with a popup window. You can click OK and all works good but this is annoying. I would like to remove the check from the HTML but with the IECreate the page loads and the warning message pops up.

$oIE = _IECreate("http://cintegrad.ehmc.com",0,1,0)

$webpage = _IEDocReadHTML ($oIE)

$webpage=StringReplace($webpage,"checkBrowser();","")

_IEDocWriteHTML($oIE, $webpage)
_IEAction ($oIE, "refresh")

If I do OK through the warning message and then View Source the HTML is being changed. If I refresh the page it actually works perfectly (no warning message). I tried _INetGetSource however if the webpage name is different the image references fail on the page.

Thank you in advance. I really did try and go through the forums and figure this out myself but I do have my flame retardent suit on just incase!

Sounds like an out-of-date app. Who maintains the web viewer site? This would be much easier to fix on the server side.

Assuming the alert is displayed as part of a body onload event handler, if you wait for the document to load you cannot prevent the popup. I would suggest simply trying to dismiss the popup quickly with WinWait and ControlSend.

If you want to mess around a bit, you can use _IECreate with $f_wait set to 0 and then loop checking the readystate with _IEPropertyGet... when it hits 3 (interactive) you MIGHT be able to inject javascript that would redefine the alert function to be a noop in time.

@MPH - ah yes, good call... forgot about that. This would require Greasemonkey be installed and configured in each browser that was to use this, however...
