Does IE_Navigate recursivly scan web pages

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a script that loops through an array of URLs and displays them with a Sleep command in between. The exact code is:

For $iPageLoop = 0 to UBound($arrWebPages) - 1

_IENavigate ($oIE, $arrWebPages[$iPageLoop])

_IELoadWait ($oIE)

Sleep($iSleepTime)

And your question is what exactly?

BTW, use autoit code tags when posting any code, thank you.


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.

Sorry, prematurely postd and I couldn't get back in to edit. Full question is:

I have a script that loops through an array of URLs and displays them with a Sleep command in between. The exact code is:

For $iPageLoop = 0 to UBound($arrWebPages) - 1

_IENavigate ($oIE, $arrWebPages[$iPageLoop])

_IELoadWait ($oIE)

Sleep($iSleepTime)

Next

Our Security group looks for computers that take up excessive bandwidth and the PC running the above script is a major offender. When we analyse the traffic for the PC, I see it pulling all this additional content that is linked to within the page. When I pull the pages up manually, I do not see all the addtional traffic. So, therfore, the question (a d subject) of the post is: Does IE_Navigate recursivley scan a page and pull in all material linked to from within the page?

Thanks,

John

But when you do it manually, it might be the second try and the cache might be used.

Therefore less traffic.

jjohnsonBBG,

I would look at $arrWebPages and make sure that the array contains what you think it should contain.

Like this

#include <array.au3>
_arraydisplay($arrWebPages)
For $iPageLoop = 0 to UBound($arrWebPages) - 1
 _IENavigate ($oIE, $arrWebPages[$iPageLoop])
 _IELoadWait ($oIE)
 Sleep($iSleepTime)
 Next
