Script breaking behavior when using IE10 on Win7

When using _IExxx functions with IE10 on Win7, there are incompatibility issues.

Here a sample with _IEGetObjByName() and _IEGetObjById()

#include <ie.au3>
_IE_VersionInfo()
$oIE=_iecreate("Google.com")
consolewrite(@crlf&_IEPropertyGet($oIE,"appversion"))
$Object=_IEGetObjByName($oIE,"gbqfq")
ConsoleWrite(@crlf&" Error on ByName: "& @error&@crlf)
$Object=_IEGetObjById($oIE,"gbqfq")
ConsoleWrite(@crlf&" Error on   ById: "  & @error&@crlf)
_IEQuit($oIE)

Console output with IE9

HTML code

<input name="q" class="gbqfif" id="gbqfq" style='background: ... skipped some lines ...>

As you can see, in IE10 _IEGetObjByName() returns @error=7.

In IE9 it returns @error=0. The Id was taken instead.

So some of my scripts refused to work. Login button was not pressed since I used ByName instead of ById.

I think, there are more incompatibilities between IE9 and IE10.

Does IE10 have xpath searching yet? They are way behind the times. (sorry to not specifically address your issue)

@Exit, I never really understood why it was the case, but in all prior versions of IE, IDs shared the same namespace with Names. They finally decided to tighten that up in IE10. Personally, I never relied on this behavior and was always careful to use _IEGetObjByName for Names and _IEGetObjByID for IDs. You'll need to do the same.

@jdelaney - unfortunately no, still no xpath

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?
