_IE and Inet

Recommended Posts


Why should I use _IE functions for read HTML and other things, when I can use InetRead?

I think InetRead is much faster, cuz _IE function require to turn Internet Explorer (Hidden or not)

Use _IE if you need the output of the page after client-side script processing, if you want to take advantage of the DOM to help you parse the page content, if you need to provide web page authentication information, or if you need to write information back to the page instead of just reading it.

If all you need is information from a static, unauthenticated HTML page, use INET.

They do different things.


Free Internet Tools: DebugBar, AutoIt IE Builder, HTTP UDF, MODIV2, IE Developer Toolbar, IEDocMon, Fiddler, HTML Validator, WGet, curl

MSDN docs: InternetExplorer Object, Document Object, Overviews and Tutorials, DHTML Objects, DHTML Events, WinHttpRequest, XmlHttpRequest, Cross-Frame Scripting, Office object model

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
