AutoIt features for chrome

6 posts in this topic

I saw there were many features in Autoit for Internet Explorer in Example scripts & help file but IE is outdated so i was thinking if AutoIt supports Chrome features too ! One feature i am particularly looking for is to launch chrome & then i want to track every site it visits - if it visits some site i immediatly come to know .

Note this for no evil purpose , i am making a parental project so that parents can block specific sites , when thier children go to such site immediatly i can take actions .

Chrome doesn't expose its inner workings the same way that IE does, so you'll have to rely on reading the titlebar/text on the page/etc. to get the information.

BTW, IE is not outdated.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

      Hello,
      I'm trying to wright a automated process to show some URL's in chrome browsers on multiple screens.
      I've 4 screens and want to show on each screen another instance of chrome whit its own URL.
      In mine search on the site i din't find any topic for this specific problem.
      The way I was trying is something like :
      ShellExecute("chrome.exe", "http://URL1 --start-maximized") so I'll not see the addressbar but it was not opend full screen .
      I've some questions about this way:
      -Is there a way to maximize it on a dedicated screen ?
      (like URL1 on screen 1 , URL2 on screen 2 etc...)
      -Shellexecute will add a tab on a existing browser and will not open another instance, is there a way to work around this?
      Is there somebody who had the same problem whit chrome?
      thanks in advanced.
      edit: I've checked the chrome UDF but it din't same to get the job done....

      Hello all,
      I've been trying to figure out how to launch Google Chrome in the background (hidden) but it doesn't seem possible. I've tried the following methods:
      ShellExecute("C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe", "", "", "", @SW_HIDE) Also I've tried:
      ShellExecute(@ComSpec, "/c start chrome.exe","","",@SW_HIDE) Lastly I tried:
      RunWait('"'&@ProgramFilesDir&'\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --silent-launch',@ScriptDir)  
      But all of them launch my chrome browser without hiding it. Does anyone know a workaround for this or if AutoIT just can't Chrome? 
      Bonus points if you know how to make it launch chrome hidden and make it go to https://www.autoitscript.com
       
      Thank you,
      Brian

      I'm trying to get the output data from https://www.guilded.gg but it uses a web app that generates that output on the fly and this doesn't show up in the page source.
      Only in web inspector of each browser does this data show up. How do I read this data in autoit (equivalent to the web inspector)
       
      thank you

      Hello everyone,
      I could use some help with the following: 
      I'm a speech recognition user and recently I've started to use AutoIt for additional scripting because sometimes it works faster. 
      I would like to create an AutoIt script that will open the Chrome link on my desktop which is a a symbolic link, so that the Chrome cache is on my Ram drive:
      "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disk-cache-dir="A:\Browser Cache"
      Next I want to send the website address, in this case: https://autochords.com/ (with SendKeys) to the address bar.
      Then another SendKeys to send Enter.
      I want to use this script when I'm working on my girlfriend's computer, where speech recognition isn't installed.
      I could use ShellExecute ("Chrome", "https://autochords.com/") but then it won't run via my ram drive.
      I am a Dragon NaturallySpeaking user. The program has a scripting language similar to VBA. In Dragon the command is as follows:
      HeardWord "open","chrome" ; HeardWord acts as if I literally said "open Chrome" this command opens any desktop shortcut no matter which window I'm working in.
      Wait 1500 
      SendKeys "https://autochords.com/"
      SendKeys "{Enter}"; these last three lines are similar to AutoIt language I think.....
      Any help would be appreciated.
      Rob
