noob with html question

7 posts in this topic

I've searched the forums and can't find an answer and I think I've been staring at it too long now.

This is what I have and I understand about the semicolon in line 11 but I can't wrap my ahead around how I need to go about wrapping that line properly with single quotes or double quotes to get around the semicolon acting like the comment character.

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://somewebsite")
$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "f")
$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "title")
$oQuery2 = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "email")
$oQuery3 = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "addy")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oQuery, "returning?")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($oQuery2, "xxxx@xxxxx.com")
$sHTML = "" & @CR
$sHTML &= "<html><head>" & @CR
$sHTML &= "<title>Somthing!</title>" & @CR
$sHTML &= "<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"></head>" & @CR
$sHTML &= "<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">" & @CR
$sHTML &= "<table width="10%" height="10%" border="0" align="left" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">" & @CR
$sHTML &= "<tr><td><div align="'left'">" & @CR
$sHTML &= "<table id="'Table_01'" width="'550'" height="'350'" border="'0'" cellpadding="'0'" cellspacing="'0'">" & @CR
$sHTML &= "<tr><td><a href="http://www.myothersite.com">" & @CR
$sHTML &= "<img src="http://www.myothersite.com/img" width="550" height="88" border="0"></a></td></tr>" & @CR
$sHTML &= "</table>" & @CR
$sHTML &= "</div></td></tr></table>" & @CR
$sHTML &= "</body></html>" & @CR)
_IEDocWriteHTML($oQuery3,$sHTML)
_IEAction($oQuery3,"refresh")

I've tried several iterations of using the quotes but still end up with various errors:"unterminated string","missing separator" etc..

Considering yesterday I started this project with just using a bunch of basic commands to copy and paste and mousemouse to today jumping into _IE functions I'm making progress, just hitting a speed bump.

Thanks for all the invaluable information on here and thanks in advance for any help.

Start and end the string with a single quote ( ' ) and that way the double quotes inside the string won't throw off your script.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

You'll also need to do the same thing on several other lines (12, 13, 16, 17 and possibly also 14 and 15).


Whenever someone says "pls" because it's shorter than "please", I say "no" because it's shorter than "yes".

Thanks BrewMan

Thanks JohnQSmith ( I discovered that and started cleaning it up)

Im all the way to the bottom and just getting an "Unbalanced brackets in expression" here

$sHTML &= "</body></html>" & @CR)

Im sure that's about the closing tags in the html (which I'm no expert, I'm more SQL/VBA).

Thanks again for both of your quick responses.

For future reference for any one else, you'll need to also take away the quotes around your aligns and bgcolor

Your "unbalanced brackets" issue is because you have a parentheses at the end of the line that doesn't belong there.

WOOHOO!

Yes, a misplaced parentheses from earlier trying to mess with it. Thanks for your time and I'm sure I'll posting again, perhaps even helping someone else, :-p

I'm glad it's working for you now. Glad I could help with it.
