IE Interfacing

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey, im' pretty new to this and havent been able to write a solution for this, even after spending a few hours reading the documentation on all of the functions.

Basically, it should:

refresh an forums page in Internet Explorer every 15 seconds to see if theres a new reply containing an email. if there is a new reply containing an email, a reply should be posted saying "Thanks!"

any help would be appreciated.

bonus points if you can make it so that the IE window doesnt have to be active. (i'd like this to run in the background so i can go on with my daily activities) but i think with autoit it has to be. :-/

did you check out dale's IE.au3? if not you should do a search for it, has great stuff for working with web pages on screen or in the background. I think you have to be using the beta for it too.

Sorry, there is no substitute for writing some code and trying to figure this out on your own. There is likewise no canned answer when it comes to webpages because, although they use standard components, there is no stock interface.

Try some things and then come back with code to either brag about your success or to ask for help.
