Wrong chars in file's name at Chrome's omnibox while opening a webpage

4 posts in this topic

Hello all!

I try to solve a simple task: to open local webpage in Chrome. As anybody know there is no a special Chrome menu command (or a switch) of doing it.

If we put in the same directory Portable Chrome exe-file and webpage (help.html) and the au3-script and hope to get for example:

file:///H:/0FLASH/exe/GoogleChromePortable11/help.html

in Chrome's omnibox - NO result, it shows after about 5 secs instead:

file^|||H^\0FLASH\exe\GoogleChromePortable11|help/html

Why? Script is attached below because of small size. Thanks in advance!

(WinXP SP3, Celeron M)

----------------------------------

dim $var=@ScriptDir & "\chrome.exe"

dim $file="file:///" & @ScriptDir & "/help.html"

$pid=Run($var, "",@SW_MAXIMIZE)

WinActivate("New tab - Google Chrome", "")

$handle = WinGetHandle("New tab - Google Chrome", "")

sleep(10)

Opt("WinTextMatchMode", 4)

ControlSend($handle, "", "[CLASSNN:Chrome_OmniboxView1]", $file,1) ; Sends a string in raw mode

sleep(10)

If u Move Chrome to the script Dir ......... I dont think thats gonna solve your problem

Becoz the chrome must also be requiring some external files in its Directory

So it would be a better idea to move the Script at the Chrome's Directory

You may get better from this Example!!

Opt("WinTextMatchMode", 4)
dim $var='C:UsersabhishekAppDataLocalGoogleChromeApplication' & "chrome.exe"
dim $file="file:///" & @ScriptDir & "/help.html"
$pid=ShellExecute($var, "",@SW_MAXIMIZE)
WinWaitActive("[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0; TITLE:Abhishek Mohanty - Google Chrome]", "")
$handle = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0; TITLE:Abhishek Mohanty - Google Chrome]", "")
sleep(10)
ControlSetText($handle, "", "[CLASSNN:Chrome_OmniboxView1]", $file )
ControlSend($handle, "", "[CLASSNN:Chrome_OmniboxView1]",'{ENTER}')
sleep(10)

PhoenixXL, thank you very much for the answer!! As _portable_ Chrome and webpage should start from somebody's CD/flash under any Wimdows I still have to use Chrome dir as a subdir of total (with title webpage) project. And in addition I set more long 'sleep' delay (for faster computers).

All other code works perfectly! And I dont't know even where have you come to "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0; TITLE:New Tab - Google Chrome]" ! ;) It works in spite of I couldn't find anything like in AutoIt Window Info in my system. The result script that works attached. Thank you so much!

EveryThing is Almost Available in the Compiled HTML Help File............

U can search the Help File for 'Advanced Title Match Mode' or 'opt(WinTitleMatchMode,4)' and u will get a good concept about the 'CLASS' , 'INSTANCE' , 'CLASSNN' and Much More.........

If not you can always seek help in this Forum ; We are always there to help you out ;)
