Modified WebSite (IE)

5 posts in this topic

I've been tasked at work with creating a modified version of a web based tool... The goal is to correct bugs, add functionality, etc.

I was initially thinking about using Chrome or FF and just building an add-on to handle the constant reload modifications necessary, but FF doesn't load it properly (just loads raw HTML, Mime type issue), and the system is locked such that I cannot load Chrome. I'm stuck using IE7.

Given this, any suggestions on the best way to accomplish this goal? The title won't change, and the URL may not even change (possible reload).

I've been playing around with the functions and the DOM by injecting javascript, which works nicely, but I need to repeat this each time the page loads. I was thinking about writing a "dirty bit" type variable to the page, such that a modification by me would set it to true, and a reload would result a false being returned. I could then write a loop that constantly checks to see if the page needs JS injected again. Is this too convoluted?

Does anyone have suggestions on how best to accomplish my goal?

Thanks.

Take a look at the IE UDF functions, maybe in particular the _IEBodyWriteHTML function, if you haven't.

Thanks for the reply.

I've checked out the IE UDFs, but they still require monitoring for changes.

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?
