Use the object variable returned by the function _IECreate and try using "$o_object.visible = True". see if that works.

EDIT: The $o_object would be replaced by whatever variable you used to hold the return value from _IECreate.

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.

You also can get the handle of the IE instance, so you can use WinSetState and Winxxx functions to manage the Window :

$o_object = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd")
WinSetState($o_object,"", @SW_SHOW)
WinActivate($o_object)

OK. One more minor issue. :)

Iecreate is loading a page that loads a logon page (.aspx). My script auto fills the logon form and submits it then another page shows content I want to read. The page that loads has the same URL that iecreate used. I want to read the html content of the page from after I logon. The problem is that every time I use htmldocread and the URL or var from is create is shows me the HTML data of the logon page. How can I read the HTML content of the page that is displayed after the form is submitted?

Thanks,

~GD
