IENavigate not waiting for page to fully load.

5 posts in this topic

I'm trying to navigate to http://www.traffic.com/New-York-Traffic/New-York-Traffic-Reports-Hotspots.html but the script continues on even though I have IENavigate set up with the default wait at 1. I even tried IELoadWait right behind it, but that didn't help. Is there a workaround to force a wait? I don't want to use sleep, because that would be just as undependable with regards to the cpu load, server load, internet speed, and anything else.

You can be fooled by AJAX routines... the page actually does load and gives a READY state, but async processing can occur after that load. Best suggestion is to figure out an element in that dynamically created section and check for its existance before you move on with your processing.

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?

That's a good idea, but the problem with that is I do not see a way that I can see what's not there before the page load to use as a point of reference. Is there a way to stop or slow down page loads so I can do this?

Install httpfox on Firefox and look at the last request.

Simpler: look at the Javascript to see what element is loaded at the latest.

I dont fully understand what/how you mean, but this is what I came up with that seems to work. However, if your way is cleaner, please show me.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Include <Array.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <Array2.au3>
_IEErrorHandlerRegister("_MyErrFunc")
_IEErrorHandlerDeRegister()
_IEErrorHandlerRegister()
$OIE = _IECreate("", 0, 1)
_IENavigate($OIE, "http://www.traffic.com/New-York-Traffic/New-York-Traffic-Reports-Hotspots.html")
Do
$oFrame = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "tr",2)
$UU = @error
Until $UU = "0" And $oFrame.id = "nvt_widget14_row0"

$oFramer = _IETableGetCollection($OIE, 1)
$rr = _IETableWriteToArray($oFramer)
_ArrayDisplay($rr)
_IEQuit($OIE)
Exit
Func _MYERRFUNC()
$HEXNUMBER = Hex($OIEERRORHANDLER.number, 8)
MsgBox(0, "COM Error", "INM intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF & @CRLF & "err.description is: " & @TAB & $OIEERRORHANDLER.description & @CRLF & "err.windescription:" & @TAB & $OIEERRORHANDLER.windescription & @CRLF & "err.number is: " & @TAB & $HEXNUMBER & @CRLF & "err.lastdllerror is: " & @TAB & $OIEERRORHANDLER.lastdllerror & @CRLF & "err.linecode is: " & @TAB & $OIEERRORHANDLER.scriptline)
SetError(1)
EndFunc   ;==>_MYERRFUNC
Func _CONSOLEWRITE($CONSOLEINFO)
ConsoleWrite($CONSOLEINFO & @CRLF & @CRLF)
