Replacing The Text In A Webpage

Recommended Posts

Well, i have been using autoit for about 2 years now.

I find it very fun and all, but i was never able to fully grasp the concept of _IE.

Basically... my program will open up a webpage and then after the webpage is loaded and all, i will press another button which will search for text inside that webpage and then replace that text.

Anyhelp please? I can show some source of what i have done already


#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <ScreenCapture.au3>
#include <StaticConstants.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#Region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
Local $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
$Form1 = GUICreate("LOL", 819, 668, 186, 114)
$Input1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 0, 0, 817, 21)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button1", 0, 584, 193, 81)
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button2", 200, 584, 185, 81)
$Button3 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button3", 392, 584, 185, 81)
$Button4 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Button4", 584, 584, 233, 81)
$Pic1 = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 24, 817, 561)
#EndRegion ### END Koda GUI section ###

While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg

Case $Button2

$sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)
If StringInStr($sText, "StringToReplaceHere") Then
;;; I found it
Msgbox(1,"Found it","Yay, i found it.")

;;; didn't find it
;;; do something else

Case $Button1

_IEBodyReadText reads and makes a copy of the text in a webpage. If you alter it, nothing happens to the webpage - it is a copy.

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?
