_IEPropertyGet failed on Frame collection

Recommended Posts


since several days I have a script part that doesn't work anymore calling information on frame.

I get a collection with 5 frames but all request on the any frame (direct by name or using the loop like below) return at least an empty information

_IEPropertyGet return 0 with a error 5 (5 ($_IEStatus_InvalidValue) = Invalid Value)

or a direct error on object in IE.AU3 library

Return SetError($_IEStatus_Success, 0, $o_object.location.href())
line 2692 of IE.AU3

The request action with this object has failed (when using the "locationurl" property)

#include <IE.au3>

$strURL = "my url is here and below attach works perfectly"

$oIE = _IEAttach ( $strURL, "URL")
;$oIE = _IECreate( $strURL)
if @error > 0 then
    msgbox( 0, "Debug", " Erreur attaching: " & @Error)

$oFrames = _IEFrameGetCollection( $oIE)
$iNumFrames = @extended
;msgbox( 0, "Debug", "Frame: " & $iNumFrames)
For $i = 0 to ($iNumFrames - 1)
    $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection ($oIE, $i)
    ;if IsObj ( $oFrame) Then
    if @error < 1 then
        MsgBox(0, "Frame Info", "Frame (" & $i & "): [" & _IEPropertyGet ($oFrame, "Name") & "]. Error: " & @Error)

        ;MsgBox(0, "Frame Info", _IEPropertyGet ($oFrame, "locationurl"))
        MsgBox(0, "Frame Error", "Frame: " & $i & " erreur: " & @error)

looking further, here is what I discover on this:

I check the object name after getting the "Frame" with this code

For $i = 0 to ($iNumFrames - 1)
    $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection ($oIE, $i)
    MsgBox( 0, "Debug", "Object name: " & ObjName( $oFrame))

the object are all (normal, there are from the same collection): DispHTMLWindow2

looking a bit on this type of object (Some properties and methods) I try a direct attribut call

For $i = 0 to ($iNumFrames - 1)
    $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection ($oIE, $i)
    MsgBox(0, "Frame Info", $oFrame.name)

and this works fine.

Don't know why the IE.AU3 doesn't work anymore (no upgrade nor update of web, OS or new soft installed except Tessarct (Free OCR)) but this does not change the browser (and related dll) normaly

Suggest you add _IEErrorHandlerRegister() to your code and see what else is written to the console.

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?
