IE embedded

Recommended Posts


I'm having trouble embedding an IE object within an AutoIT GUI.

The code snippet below works fine for me when using a screen resolution of 1024x768.

However, if I change the desktop resolution to 800x600 and reboot, @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight are as expected (ie. 800, 600) but the IE embedded object displays HTML pages that seem to be for another resolution (seems to be for bigger resolutions because the "drawing area" is bigger).

I think you can easily reproduce the problem by setting your display to 800x600 and running on one hand a normal IE instance pointing to a url (either using IECreate or opening the browser directly), and on the other, the following script:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded ()
$GUIhandle = GUICreate("window title", @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 0, 0, $WS_POPUP, $WS_EX_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW)
$GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight)
_IENavigate ($oIE, $URL)

If the URL code is appropriate you should notice the difference. IE embedded will cut off a piece of the page that you will be able to see correctly in the normal IE instance.

How can I fix this?

Is there a way to tell $oIE to use 800x600?
