IE link object problem

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello, fellow coders!

I face a very strange problem that I couldn't resolve. The error I get is

D:\links.au3 (118) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
If StringInStr($l.href, $struct[$j]) <> 0 Then
If StringInStr($l.href^ ERROR

I'm trying to browse all links on a site, check if they contain something and do something else :huh2:

Here is the code

$ls = _IELinkGetCollection($ie)

For $l In $ls

    For $j = 1 To $sn

    If StringInStr($l.href, $struct[$j]) <> 0 Then
           
             $fl = True
         ExitLoop 2

    EndIf

    Next

Next

but one link 'breaks' my program. I can't find a way to solve this. isObj($l) returns true and isObj($l.href) throws the same error. Is there another way to check if $l.href is valid and skip it?

The site I open is http://www.notaalmargen.net/ and the link that 'breaks' the program is 'karen'. When I move the mouse over it I don't see the link url in the bottom of the screen like a normal link. With debugbar I get

href="http://karen092793@hotmail.com"
I've noticed that on another similar site another link containing '@' crashes my program with the same error.

Any ideas how to solve this problem?

Thank you very much

I ran. I ran until my muscles burned and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

This doesn't make much sense. I've see similar unexplainable issues when the HTML on the page is invalid. I ran this page through validator.w3c.org and there are errors hear that part of the HTML, so that is my best guess.

You can make the error non-fatal by adding _IEErrorHandlerRegister() to your code.

Thank you for the help. I've searched the help file for some general error handler but I don't know why I didn't look in the IE UDF.

About the error - I noticed that my program breaks on other sites on very similar links - 'href="http://something@hotmail.com" Probably those links were supposed to be mailto. But anyway, with _IEErrorHandlerRegister I just skip them. Thank you, Dale, one more time :huh2:
