#include

;~ $SiteLink = InputBox("Link", "Paste link to download images from", "http://www.stanceworks.com")
;~ Local $oIE = _IECreate($SiteLink)

Local $oIE = _IE_Example("basic")

Local $sTags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "img", 0)
$ImageCount = @extended

;~ For $sTags In $sTags
;~ MsgBox("","", "Tag: " & $sTags)

MsgBox("","",$ImageCount)
MsgBox("","",$sTags)

Im trying to make a script that will automaticly download all pictures in from a webpage, except the ones i tell it not to.

But im havving issues.

I im trying to figure out a way to get the <img> tags, and i think ive done that, but i can't figure out why the msgbox is just blank.

The example suggest i should use $sTags.Name or something like that.

But i don't know what "that" is called, so i can't google for it.

Any suggestions on what to use $sTags.Here ?

Or any suggestion on how to easy get all <img> tags listed on a page ?

Thank you!

I suck at browsing the msdn thing.

New issue!

How can i make it browse through all the different <img> tags ?

Cause the uses the For..In Loop

But that just shows up empty for me.

For $oInput In $oInputs
    MsgBox(0, "Form Input Type", "Form: " & $oInput.form.name & " Type: " & $oInput.type)
Next

#include 

;~ $SiteLink = InputBox("Link", "Paste link to download images from", "http://www.stanceworks.com")
$SiteLink = InputBox("Link", "Paste link to download images from", "http://www.stanceworks.com/2012/06/the-quest-to-break-10-johans-turbo-e30-m3/")
Local $oIE = _IECreate($SiteLink)

Local $sTags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "img", 0)
$ImageCount = @extended

MsgBox("","",$ImageCount)
MsgBox("","",$sTags.src)

You remove the "0" as the third parameter of _IETagNameGetCollection() function. This makes it so that it returns the entire collection rather than a single indexed instance.

"For $tag In $sTags" iterates through the entire collection with $tag representing a single tag in any given iteration. $tag is declared by the For loop itself.

For greater flexibility, you could replace that For loop with something like this (make sure you declare $tag yourself, if necessary):

For $i = 0 To $ImageCount - 1
$tag = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "img", $i)
;Here you can choose to skip the numbers you don't want...
;This will skip #7, which is the eighth in the collection
If Not $i = 7 Then MsgBox("","",$tag.src)
Next

I point this out because previously you had mentioned you want to get pictures except those you tell script to exclude, so this is one way you can implement that exclusion, though it's probably easier to do it after you have all the src URLs in an array or something then process it.

That clears it up, i was having trouble understanding where the $tag came from.

My plan is to get all links to images in an array, then compare the Link-array to an array of blacklisted images.

Theese images would be saved in an external file, because then it would be easy to make a new blacklist if i find a new page that supports the same technique.

Also your script is based upon numbers, if suddenly the page adds an extra advertisment image then the whole thing would have to be adjusted.
