Need help interacting w/embedded IE

7 posts in this topic

I am trying to automate stuff in Rhapsody but like most music apps, iTunes, WindowsMediaPlayer they've got the Music Stores. AutoIt doesn't like these too well.

WinSpy shows these as Internet Explorer_Server class.

I've tried digging through the forums and have played around with beta and the com objects. But everything I've read so far have been about stand alone Internet Explorer.

I am a noob to com and have been toying w/AutoIt for a few days now. Can a pro point me to some example code or give some search phrase to continue my search. How do you automate a web page that is inside an application?

Thanks,

Gnomy

You could try this... to make an automation program

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=13024#

***** or.. to make your own

Use AU3info ( This maybe the WinSpy you referred to)

*** then use (from Help)

ControlCommand

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sends a command to a control.

ControlCommand ( "title", "text", controlID, "command", "option" )

*** or one of the related controls on this help page

good luck

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

The problem with ControlCommand is that it requires a ControlID.

The AutoIt Active WindowInfo reports no ID but offers a class name.

Is there another control where I can pass the classname or Handle

for situations like this?

Press CTRL-ALT-F to pause the display.

I think this is it

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

ControlCommand ( "title", "text", ClassName= MFCReportCtrl5, "command", "option" )

"ClassName=MFCReportCtrl5" **** no spaces

read help

I've been trying a number of stuff Namely

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)

WinActivate ( "Rhapsody")
;$var = ControlFocus("Rhapsody", "", "ClassNameNN=TEST_WIN32WND55")
;$var=ControlCommand("Rhapsody", "", "ClassName=TEST_WIN32WND55", "IsEnabled", "")
;$var = ControlFocus("Rhapsody", "", "ClassNameNN=TEST_WIN32WND85")
;$var = ControlClick("ClassNameNN=TEST_WIN32WND85")
;$var = ControlClick('ClassNameNN=TEST_WIN32WND85', "")
$var = ControlClick("Rhapsody", "", "ClassNameNN=TEST_WIN32WND85")

MsgBox(0, "Control Focus", $var)
;Returns 0 :(

;ControlCommand("Rhapsody", "", "ClassName=TEST_WIN32WND55", "EditPaste", 'Sum 41')

The problem is that I am unable to click on controls based on the ClassNameNN.

Am I doing this right? I tried looking in the help and forums. The help only infers that ClassNameNN can be used to identify a window. But there's nothing for it in controls. I want to be able to ControlFocus, ControlClick, Send and all the normal stuff.

But using the ClassName as an ID isn't working for me :)

BTW Thanks for your help it's much appreciated.
