2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I'm trying to scrape the rendered text from inside a frame in IE with no success. Can someone please help?

CODE OF THE PAGE I'M TRYING TO SCRAPE

<html><head><meta name=vs_targetSchema content="HTML 4.0"><title>Updating Display</title> <!--Updating Display-- EOL--></head><frameset id=toggler framespacing=0 frameborder="1" cols="0%,100%"><frameset id=filtersframe framespacing=0 frameborder="1" rows="90%,10%"><frame id="AvailableFilters" name="AvailableFilters" src="AvailableFilters.asp?D=Reporter_Agent_Display|PRIAACC|PRIAACC|5&DT=StandardAgent&CF=&S=0|0&TA=2" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling=auto frameborder="yes" noresize="noresize" title="Realtime Hidden"><frame id="FiltersFrameMessages" name="FiltersFrameMessages" src="../PrivateDisSave.asp" marginwidth="5" marginheight="0" scrolling=no frameborder="yes" noresize="noresize" title="Realtime Hidden"></frameset><frame id="DisWithFilters" name="DisWithFilters" src="StdDisplay.asp?D=Reporter_Agent_Display|PRIAACC|PRIAACC|5&DT=StandardAgent&CF=&S=0|0&TA=2&ServerType=1" marginwidth="5" marginheight="0" scrolling=auto frameborder="no" noresize="noresize" title="Realtime Hidden"></frameset></html>

AUTOIT I'M USING TO TRY AND GET TO THE RENDERED TEXT OF THE PAGE

#include <IE.au3>
Local $oIE = _IEAttach("Reporter Agent Display")
Local $oFrames = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE)
Local $iNumFrames = @extended
For $i = 0 To ($iNumFrames - 1)
Local $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE, $i)
MsgBox(0, "Frame Info", _IEPropertyGet($oFrame, "innertext"))
Next

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

C:Program FilesAutoIt3IncludeIE.au3 (2849) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

$oTemp = $o_object.document.body

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?
