Problem in website, retrieve information

Try the sample in help file. _IEQuite.aus.

It did not work.

Does anyone know what's wrong with the sample $oMarquee line?

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://sourceforge.net", 0, 0)

; Display the innerText on an element on the page with a name of "sfmarquee"

$oMarquee = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "sfmarquee")

MsgBox(0, "SourceForge Information", $oMarquee.innerText)

_IEQuit ($oIE)

There is no object on sourceforge.net called "sfmarquee". Right click on the webpage and choose "view source". You can get the object names from there.


Dating a girl is just like writing software. Everything's going to work just fine in the testing lab (dating), but as soon as you have contract with a customer (marriage), then your program (life) is going to be facing new situations you never expected. You'll be forced to patch the code (admit you're wrong) and then the code (wife) will just end up all bloated and unmaintainable in the end.

Okay.

Still got the error for the line $oMarquee.innerText

Changed the source name in the source to "Download".

Error: Variable must be of type "Object".

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://sourceforge.net", 0, 0)

; Display the innerText on an element on the page with a name of "Download"

$oMarquee = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "Download")

MsgBox(0, "SourceForge Information", $oMarquee.innerText)

_IEQuit ($oIE)
