_IENavigate - determining if timed out.

Recommended Posts

I am confused in how to determine whether the navigate action timed out.

It seems from the documentation below that the return code is not valid in this determination. And other methods need to be employed to determine the success. Can someone help in but this might mean? What with these other methods be?


This function always returns a value of -1.

You will need to employ other methods to determine success or failure of the navigation.

Failure: Returns 0 and sets @ERROR

@Error: 0 ($_IEStatus_Success) = No Error

1 ($_IEStatus_GeneralError) = General Error

3 ($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) = Invalid Data Type

4 ($_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType) = Invalid Object Type

6 ($_IEStatus_LoadWaitTimeout) = Load Wait Timeout

8 ($_IEStatus_AccessIsDenied) = Access Is Denied

9 ($_IEStatus_ClientDisconnected) = Client Disconnected

@Extended: Contains invalid parameter number

I now see that the way to do this might be with _IEPropertyGet

Can anybody comment on a workable method?

Look at the return value from the function, if it's -1 it was successful, if it's 0, then you'd need to look at the @error value returned to see why it failed.

There seems to be a problem in the _IENavigate function that returns -1 (a success value) even if there's an error encountered. Check the @error value to see if there's anything other than 0, and then use that value to tell you what the error is. I submitted a track ticket #2320 in regards to this.

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.
