IECreatePseudoEmbedded

Recommended Posts

Inspired by I took a more simplified approach that is more reliant on IE.au3.

#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>
#include <Constants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
Func IECreatePseudoEmbedded($iLeft, $iTop, $iWidth, $iHeight, $hParent, $sURL = "about:blank", $bShowWin = False)
Local $iPID = Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -k " & $sURL, "", @SW_HIDE)
Sleep(2000)
Local $oIE = _IEAttach($sURL, "URL", 1)
Local $hWND = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd")
_WinAPI_SetParent($hWND, $hParent)
_WinAPI_MoveWindow($hWND, $iLeft, $iTop, $iWidth, $iHeight, True)
_WinAPI_SetWindowLong($hWND, $GWL_STYLE, $WS_POPUP + $WS_VISIBLE)
If $bShowWin == True Then
  WinSetState($hWND, "", @SW_SHOW)
EndIf
Return $oIE
EndFunc

With this function it runs IE in kiosk mode defaulting to hidden. It will make the window a child window, resize, relocate, and redraw. It will then show the window if the ShowWin flag is set to true.

It does not handle killing the process I would like to register a cleanup function if there is a way to call a function before application close. I wan't able to find a simple way to handle this just yet, so for the time being your application should call _IEQuit on application close.

I really like what you did. I really appreciated _IECreate2, but didn't like the process polling algorithm.

I have enhanced what you posted to further follow the IE.au3 style, made it more bullet-proof and included a working example. Haven't tested all of the failure scenarios, so your testing and that of others would be good. Nice.

@DaleHohm

As your example stands, I recieve a crash upon exiting via the gui close x

When that occurs, sometimes the spawned IE processes are not closed.

It appears to be connected to the way you have the main loop

Do
    Sleep(200)
Until GUIGetMsg() = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
_IEQuit($oIE)
Exit

If it is changed to

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
If $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Then
  _IEQuit($oIE)
  Exit
EndIf
WEnd

The problem is gone.

I like that. Duplicate windows was a concern for me, it wouldn't affect me, because I know what could screw it up... But if others were to use it, I couldn't think of how to prevent that.

One thing I have encountered with this method is that if you use _IEPropertyGet for hwnd after you set parent it will give the parent handle and not that of the actual IE window. Do you know if there is a better way to get the handle?

I currently have this piece of code that I do not like, because I have multiple child windows and if one is open it doesn't always give expected results.

Func IEGetHandle($oIE)
Local $hWND = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd")
$hWND = _WinAPI_GetWindow($hWND, $GW_CHILD)
Return $hWND
EndFunc

You could alter the function to return an array, with the hwnd as one of the array elements.

Edit:

Or maybe an additional byref parameter for the hwnd?

I very rarely use the GUI functions or the WinApi functions, so I'm not much help there. I modified my post above to use JohnOne's idle loop suggestion.

Edit:

The array return would work, I wanted to try to remain with just the $oIE return to refrain from straying too far from the functionality of IE.au3.

I'm uncertain as to how much benefit a ByRef would be, generally the same downside as a Global with added complexity.

Edit: @JohnOne

I use GUIRegisterMsg instead of GUIGetMessage or OnEventMode, so I'm not sure why the difference there.

Absolutely not. You add one byref parameter to the function call ie ByRef $hWnd, and pass in a variable of your choosing, both in name and scope. The function sets that var to the created window hwnd before changing its parent. You can do what you want with it after that. This way you can keep the same object return as the standard UDF functions.

My mention of added complexity was not of the function itself, but in applied use cases. Adding a ByRef parameter isn't difficult, but it would add a mandatory parameter that would not be necessary in many cases adding unnecessary complexity to the third party code using this function.

Dale,

You don't need to use IEAttach at all... create the object, assign it theatre mode, full screen, and hide the status bar if you need to. So far I have found that the embedded object doesn't automatically take the focus when you selet the GUI title bar, so I added an "if winactive then winactivate" line in my main program loop. I'm sure there is a better solution, but I'm still not exactly an expert with GUI's... more like a seasoned amatuer:)

Also of note: the vertical scroll bars do not redraw every time the window is resized, the GUI background color is shown until you mouseover the scroll bars or an element in the webpage that changes with the mouseover (button that emboldens, for example). I'm using _WinAPI_MoveWindow to move the embedded object when the parent moves, and have even tried manually redrawing the window after the move, hiding and unhiding it... many unconventional things as well as everything I could search for that was within my capabilities at this point, all to no avail. I worked around this by turning the scroll bars off and then back on any time the window is resized. It's a little messy visually, but it works.

I'm using autoit to scrape customer account numbers, as they are viewed by sales in our AS400, to pull up in Salesforce.com. Most of our sales people are on thin clients. I had to find a way of getting the object without using the collections method in the IEAttach function... for some reason this part of the function always gets stuck in an endless loop on our thin clients.Took me forever to figure out that was the issue, and then quite awhile to figure out a way around it. The above methods work perfectly on a PC, but my solution works in our very restrictive thin client environment and appears to be more efficient in my limited experience.

Your posts have been instrumental in my own coding, thank you for your posts and any criticism you may be wiling (anyone for that matter) to give on my code below.

Have a good day,

Dan

I'm a great fan of these methods, but alas with IE.10 It crashes upon exit if there is another instance of IE open besides itself.

I'd be happy to hear is anyone has a solution to this.

Can you be more specific, please? What crashes, when what exits? Error messages?

Odd. When I run DangerousDan's version of the code, I get no crash (running the same version of 32-bit IE10 as you are).

Perhaps you can post a reproducer or try on another machine running IE10.

      My AutoIt script works fine, for the most part, however, if it goes idle for roughly 30 minutes, it will won't be able to send data to a 3rd party application window titled, "Case #". 
      The problem lies within the function "SendFusion", it's able to see the handle for the "WinActivate" and "WinWaitActivate" (I've also tried putting in 10 seconds in the WinWaitActivate as well, doesn't work). However, if we have been idle, it will always fail to send data afterward. On what I've tried so far:
      "Send" function with the data and a {ENTER} i.e. Send($CaseTxt & "{ENTER}"), this won't even hit the enter key  ControlSetText, tried passing the handle from WinActivate, using the title "Case #" that was copied directly from the Autoit Window Info, hard coding the title, Using CLASS:WindowsForms10... always returns a 0 ControlCommand (same as above) always returns a 0 ControlGetFocus always returns a 0 ControlFocus, always returns a 0 Creating a new and simple Au3 script that just sends data to "Case #", also fails NOTE: If I close the Au3 script and just scan the data directly into the "Case #" or even type it, it works fine with no issues. I'm confused as to why it would not work after a long idle period?
      Below are the essential parts of the script, I can provide the entire thing if needed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

      Window Control (x86) Info, I've tried the CLASS, the ID, also I just noticed that the "handle" in "Control" and "Window" appear to be different as well.

       
      So far the only work-around is to close down the 3rd party application and the AutoIt script, re-open them and it works all completely fine. But this is a pain for the end-user since it's all touch screen and it slows down their workflow, which they can be extremely sensitive about.

      Hi all. 
      Sorry if my words are confusing because I am not good at English.
      I am writing code to embed website with Recaptcha in GUI. And then, the code will automatically press the "I'm not a robot" button. The problem here is:
         - The code still works fine when entering iFrame to interact with Recaptcha with the URL is "https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo"
      <snip>
       
         - But for other URLs (such as "https://recaptcha-demo.appspot.com/recaptcha-v2-checkbox.php"), the code cannot be entered into the iframe.
       
      Code:

      I am pretty sure the site that I am using was updated and now I am not seeing the same tags/elements that I used to. I tried using a UIAspy to see if I could grab them that way with no luck. 
      What do I need to do to be able to automate this again. Are the elements hidden somewhere?
      Instead of highlighting established account is highlights all of the web page almost. How can I get to the detail again? 
      I used to grab establish account by the name. Now I have nothing to even try to grab. 
      There are not elements in the event viewer either. 
       


       
      This is what happens when I try to inspect the element and click established account.

WinSetState("","確定存檔嗎?",@SW_Hide) ControlClick("", "確定存檔嗎?", "[CLASS:Button; TEXT:確定; Instance:1;]")

      Hey there!
      I am having a problem with clicking a button in IE. As you can see in the code, there would be a class name to click it, but since this button exists several times with exactly the same code, I can only use the "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" to separate it from the others. But this part is just pure text without any classification. 
      "<div class="checkmark" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" class="icon" viewBox="0 0 16 16" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><circle cx="8" cy="8" r="8" data-v-1e5b1f70="" /></svg></div>Noch nicht veröffentlicht"
      I was trying to click it with:
      #include <IE.au3> local $oNNVs = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE2) For $oNNV in $oNNVs If String($oNNV.innertext) = "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" Then _IEAction($oNNV, "click") EndIf Next and:
      $inputs = $oIE2.document.getElementsByTagName("div") For $input In $inputs If $input.innertext == "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" then $input.click() EndIf Next But nothing seems to work. Thanks for the help!
