[Solved] IE Speedtest behaves strange when running hidden.

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I want to automate a speedtest to run hidden in intervalls for logging purposes.

During development, I showed the browser window and all went perfect.

But when I made the browser hidden, the results where wrong.

It seems that the OK button was not pressed when hidden.

Here is a reproducer. You'll see the difference.

#include <IE.au3>
_GetSpeed(1)
MsgBox(262144, "", "wait 20 seconds to see next messagebox ... ", 3)
_GetSpeed(0)
Exit 0
Func _GetSpeed($visible = 1)
Local $URL, $oIE, $handle, $string, $object, $download, $upload, $ping, $downloadtext, $uploadtext, $pingtext
$URL = 'http://speedtest-1.superkabel.de/de/?kdg=1&amp;rtaffi=n&amp;rtlp100=n"]http://speedtest-1.superkabel.de/de/?kdg=1&amp;rtaffi=n&amp;rtlp100=n[/url]'
$oIE = _IECreate($URL, 0, $visible)
WinWait("Speedtest Kabel Deutschland", "", 10)
$handle = WinGetHandle("[last]", "")
Sleep(2000)
$download = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "resultSpeedDl")
$upload = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "resultSpeedUp")
$ping = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "resultPing")
$object = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "radar")
_IEAction($object, "focus")
ControlSend($handle, "", "[CLASSNN:Internet Explorer_Server1]", "{TAB}{Enter}")
; this loop never ends in invisible mode, therefore 15 seconds sleep
; While "N/A" = _IEPropertyGet($ping, "innertext");
;  Sleep(500)
; WEnd
Sleep(15000)
$downloadtext = _IEPropertyGet($download, "innertext")
$uploadtext = _IEPropertyGet($upload, "innertext")
$pingtext = _IEPropertyGet($ping, "innertext")
$string = $downloadtext & "  " & $uploadtext & "  " & $pingtext & @LF
ConsoleWrite(@LF & "*********** String ***********" & @LF & $string & @LF)
MsgBox(262144, "", $string & @LF & "Close IE Window ? " & @LF, 0)
_IEQuit($oIE)
EndFunc   ;==>_GetSpeed

Can you help me to get the results even when browser window is hidden?

TIA forumer100

I found that the following statement returns 1 (sucess) when visible and 0 (failure) when hidden.

ControlSend($handle, "", "[CLASSNN:Internet Explorer_Server1]", "{TAB}{Enter}")

Can anybody explain why this error occurs ?

Instead of

$oIE = _IECreate($URL, 0, $visible)

WinWait("Speedtest Kabel Deutschland", "", 10)

$handle = WinGetHandle("[last]", "")

use

$oIE = _IECreate($URL, 0, $visible)

$handle = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd")

@Dale

many thanks. Works perfect. (Even as I don't know why?)

Think of IE as an API... or as Dale's baby :)

Again many thanks.

"hwnd" is a window handle... same as you get with WinGetHandle

You could have also used

$handle = WinGetHandle("Speedtest Kabel Deutschland", "")

and, BTW, you shouldn't need the WinWait sine _IECreate waits until the window is created and the navigation is complete.
