Report Bug in _IEDocInsertHTML

Recommended Posts

Using function _IEDocInsertHTML  with autoit 3.2 and internet explorer 9 give back the following message:

$_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType, Expected document element.

Looking at IE.au3 you can see a if block:

If Not __IEIsObjType($o_object, "browserdom")  Or __IEIsObjType($o_object, "documentcontainer") Or __IEIsObjType($o_object, "document") Then
        __IEConsoleWriteError("Error", "_IEDocInsertHTML", "$_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType", "Expected document element")
        Return SetError($_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType, 1, 0)


If you limit the control to __IEIsObjType($o_object, "browserdom") the function works, so probably something goes wrong with the evaluation. You can easily reproduce the problem with the following code:

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.autoitscript.com")

Local $oBody = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "body", 0)

_IEDocInsertHTML($oBody, "<h2><font color=red>This HTML is inserted After Begin</font></h2>", "afterbegin") _IEDocInsertHTML($oBody, "<h2><font color=red>This HTML is inserted Before End</font></h2>", "beforeend")


Hope this Helps.

If you are using a version as outdated as 3.2 (the final release was over 5 years ago) then you will not get a lot of sympathy - nor understanding as I doubt anyone here (except perhaps Zedna) runs anything that old. I suggest you update and see if the problem still exists. ;)
