How to open different tabs in IE?


Recommended Posts

Hello arunachandu,

Try the following:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("www.autoitscript.com")
__IENavigate($oIE, "www.google.com", 0, 0x800)
__IENavigate($oIE, "www.gmail.com", 0, 0x800)
__IENavigate($oIE, "www.ebay.com", 0, 0x800

Please note that there are two underscores for the __IENavigate() function and that from what I can tell it is still being developed (it's an unsupported feature of AutoIt).

The documentation for the function is below:

; Function Name:    __IENavigate()
; Description:      ** Unsupported version of _IENavigate (note second underscore in name)
;                   ** Last 4 parameters insufficiently tested.
;                   **  - Flags and Target can create new windows and new browser object - causing confusion
;                   **  - Postdata needs SAFEARRAY and we have no way to create one
;                   Directs an existing browser window to navigate to the specified URL
; Parameter(s):     $o_object       - Object variable of an InternetExplorer.Application, Window or Frame object
;                   $s_Url          - URL to navigate to (e.g. "http://www.autoitscript.com")
;                   $f_wait         - Optional: specifies whether to wait for page to load before returning
;                                       0 = Return immediately, not waiting for page to load
;                                       1 = (Default) Wait for page load to complete before returning
;                   $i_flags        - URL to navigate to (e.g. "http://www.autoitscript.com")
;                   $s_target       - URL to navigate to (e.g. "http://www.autoitscript.com")
;                   $spostdata      - URL to navigate to (e.g. "http://www.autoitscript.com")
;                   $s_headers      - URL to navigate to (e.g. "http://www.autoitscript.com")
; Requirement(s):   AutoIt3 V3.2 or higher
; Return Value(s):  On Success  - Returns -1
;                  On Failure   - Returns 0 and sets @ERROR
;                   @ERROR      - 0 ($_IEStatus_Success) = No Error
;                               - 1 ($_IEStatus_GeneralError) = General Error
;                               - 3 ($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) = Invalid Data Type
;                               - 4 ($_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType) = Invalid Object Type
;                               - 6 ($_IEStatus_LoadWaitTimeout) = Load Wait Timeout
;                               - 8 ($_IEStatus_AccessIsDenied) = Access Is Denied
;                               - 9 ($_IEStatus_ClientDisconnected) = Client Disconnected
;                   @Extended   - Contains invalid parameter number
; Author(s):        Dale Hohm

;
; Flags:
;   navOpenInNewWindow = 0x1,
;   navNoHistory = 0x2,
;   navNoReadFromCache = 0x4,
;   navNoWriteToCache = 0x8,
;   navAllowAutosearch = 0x10,
;   navBrowserBar = 0x20,
;   navHyperlink = 0x40,
;   navEnforceRestricted = 0x80,
;   navNewWindowsManaged = 0x0100,
;   navUntrustedForDownload = 0x0200,
;   navTrustedForActiveX = 0x0400,
;   navOpenInNewTab = 0x0800,
;   navOpenInBackgroundTab = 0x1000,
;   navKeepWordWheelText = 0x2000
;

From what I gather, the reason for it being unsupported is that M$ doesn't want any of your IE tabs being hijacked from a naughty script running in a tab.

Also I think you can use _IEAttach to navigate between the tabs (I haven't tested this).

Good luck and please let me know how you get on :-)
