I have one script that creates _IECreateEmbedded and another script that does _IEAttach.
I do this because when autoit is doing something, the Embedded IE starts stalling (eg jquery progress animation)
But there is a new problem.
When IE is having its own process (like in the example above) any _IE command is slow (in the script that Attaches).
Here is a comparison of when its in separate and when its in same process:
Separate process _IETagNameGetCollection : 5000ms
Separate process _IEAction: 850ms
Same process _IETagNameGetCollection : 1ms
Same proccess _IEAction: 135ms
If I try to attach to an embedded IE that is done in c#, I get lightning fast results.
As you can see, _IE functions work very slow when the embedded IE we are attaching to is made in Autoit.
I did a test and if I empty the WHILE loop in IE process I get these results(but the cpu is at 30% as expected):
Separate process _IETagNameGetCollection : 33ms
Separate process _IEAction: 13ms
It slows down if you put anything (like GUIGetMsg) in the WHILE loop.
How do I fix this?
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <IE.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Local $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded() GUICreate("My Embedded Web control Test", 640, 580, (@DesktopWidth - 640) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 580) / 2, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW + $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS + $WS_CLIPCHILDREN) GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 40, 600, 360) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;Show GUI _IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.autoitscript.com") $timer = TimerInit() $oLink = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "a", 3) ;takes 1ms ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($timer) & @CRLF) $timer = TimerInit() _IEAction($oLink, "click") ;takes 135ms ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($timer) & @CRLF) While 1 Local $iMsg = GUIGetMsg() Select Case $iMsg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ExitLoop EndSelect WEnd
Attach to IE:
#include <IE.au3> Local $oIE = _IEAttach("My Embedded Web control Test", "embedded") $timer = TimerInit() $oLink = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "a", 3) ; 5000ms ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($timer) & @CRLF) $timer = TimerInit() _IEAction($oLink, "click") ; 850ms ConsoleWrite(TimerDiff($timer) & @CRLF)

Anyone have any idea how to close all open tabs except a specific one I manually open. Assuming I don't know what is open in all the tabs except just the one I want to keep open.
I didn't want to use sendkeys and I was trying to use the following code to list the title (or url) of the 3 open tabs and after I got that part working I would just close the other 2. This sample only displays the title of the first open tab
#include <IE.au3> Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800 $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com") __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) Local $aIE $aIE = 0 Local $i = 1, $oIE While 1 $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", $i) If @error = $_IEStatus_NoMatch Then ExitLoop ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "title") & @CRLF) ReDim $aIE[$i + 1] $aIE[$i] = $oIE ;each item holds object $aIE = $i ;first item holds count $i += 1 WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE) ; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab
Thanks for any and all help
I'm trying to click on Java Dropbox using IE. However, I'm running into problems. There is a Dropbox "Please Select" with two options "Buy" and "Sell".
I'm able to click on a drop box (please see code below) but i'm unable to select "Buy" or "Sell"".
Local $sMyString = "Please Select" ;############ ENTER ############# Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE) For $oLink In $oLinks Local $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText") If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then _IEAction($oLink, "click") ExitLoop EndIf Next
