_IENavigate question - Does open all web sites

11 posts in this topic

I am trying to create a drop down menu of websites that brings up the selected website in a GUI window.   For this I am using _IENavigate and it works for all the websites except a few and I am at a loss why not.

This does not work:     _IENaviagate($oIE, "https://text4baby.org/")   The message I get is "This program cannot display the webpage"

But this does work:      Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://text4baby.org/")

I do not want to open the IE browser to display the web site.  I want it to open in a GUI window and the majority of the web sites I have do work just like I want them to.  There are just a few that do not and I do not know why.

I've looked through this forum at other similar postings and the response I've seen is if it can be opened in IE it can be opened by using _IENavigate.

What am I missing or not understanding?

Thanx in advance for any suggestions.

DCSS,

I can navigate to that page in an embedded IE browser without problem. Perhaps if you posted the whole script we might be able to suggest a reason why you cannot. When you post the code please use Code tags - see here how to do it. ;)

DCSS,

Where is the rest of it? Or do you expect me to write all the additional code to get that snippet to work? :huh:

Ther are several possible problems that I can see in that snippet. For example:

If $msg = $aDropDownMenuIDs[$i] Then

imples that $aDropDownMenuIDs is a ControlID - so how do you expect:

$sitename = $aDropDownMenuSites[$i]

to work?  Comparing a ControlID and a string is very unlikely to give you a satisfactory result. ;)

So please post the whole script - you know it makes sense. :)

 Sorry. This does work with 90% of the websites I access. It's just a handful where it does not. Also, I get the url from an ini file. I have cut and paste the url from the file into both commands in the first message above with the same results.

DCSS,

No problem - it is just much easier to try and debug when you have some working code. If we try to produce something ourselves it might very well not correspond to your code and so lead us up the garden path - as has been proved time and time again. ;)

Anyway after all that, the URL which gave you problems works fine for me using your code - so we will have to look elsewhere. Do you have any form of HIPS or firewall that might be blocking that particular site? :huh:

If it is a firewall problem, why would it work with  Local $oIE = _IECreate("https://text4baby.org/")  but not with  _IENavigate($oIE, "https://text4baby.org/")?

That's what I do not understand.   We do have a firewall to go through, no HIPS, but the browser has all the settings needed and this site works fine using the browser. 

Knowing it does work for you helps and I will keep digging.    

I haven't used this forum in a couple of years and only do AutoIT scripting sporadically but this forum is a great resource.   Have never been disappointed.

Thanx for your help.

I don't receive any errors when using your code on that site, either.

Googling  "This program cannot display the webpage" returns a lot of info about viruses - no idea if that could be an issue for you or not.

You may want to try out your code on another, similarly configured machine. 

I am running IE10 on Windows 7.

You may want to check out the alternatives to _IECreate_Embedded in my sig...

Thanx Dale,

I have run this on a Windows XP machine with IE 8 and a Windows 7 machine with IE 8. Got the same result on both machines. I also Googled that error message and got the postings abotu viruses. I ran scans on the XP machine just in case and got no viruses. That's when I decided to check the forums here.

What stumps me is why IECreate works as does accessign the site with a browser on the same machine and _IENavigate does not.

I will try it on a few other machines to see if I can get it to work. I will also look at your Alternatives to _IECreateEmbedded.

Thanx again for the suggestions.
