Need help with browser emulation?

Recommended Posts


Hi guys, I'm kinda new here. I want to ask how I'd go about doing browser emulation with AutoIt? If you aren't familiar with the term browser emulation, I believe it's one where you emulate a browser environment while interacting with a website.

So far, I'm aware that AutoIt has the HttpSetUserAgent function which I can use to set the User-Agent header but how do I set other headers? Like the Referer, Cookie, etc?

Welcome to the forums ! Posted Image

I found this example on a chinese site with referer and cookies,

hope it can help you : Posted Image

Global Const $AU3_VERSION = StringSplit(@AutoItVersion, ".")
Global Const $AU3_UNICODE = Number($AU3_VERSION[2] & "." & $AU3_VERSION[3]) >= 2.13

$WIN32_FTYPE = "W"
$WIN32_TCHAR = "wchar"
$WIN32_TSTR = "wstr"
$WIN32_FTYPE = "A"
$WIN32_TCHAR = "char"
$WIN32_TSTR = "str"
$oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
Dim $BaiduCookie
$BaiduCookie = _WinINet_InternetGetCookie("http://www.baidu.com") 

While 1
    $num = Random(0,1)
    $HTMLSource = $oHTTP.Responsetext

Func _WinINet_InternetGetCookie($sUrl, $iBufferSize = 2048)
    Local $tSize = DllStructCreate("dword")
    DllStructSetData($tSize, 1, $iBufferSize)
    Local $tCookieData = DllStructCreate($WIN32_TCHAR & "[" & $iBufferSize & "]")
    Local $avResult = DllCall("wininet.dll", "int", "InternetGetCookie" & $WIN32_FTYPE, $WIN32_TSTR, $sUrl, "ptr", 0, "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tCookieData), "ptr", DllStructGetPtr($tSize))
    If @error Then Return SetError(1, 0, "")
    If Not $avResult[0] Then Return SetError(1, DllStructGetData($tSize, 1), "")
    Return DllStructGetData($tCookieData, 1)
EndFunc ;==>_WinINet_InternetGetCookie
