Having problems with FFstart()

6 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm trying to open a Firefox window with this code -

If _ffstart() Then

        If _ffconnect() Then
            ;_ffstart()
            If _ff_openurl("http://english.documentation.ff-au3.thorsten-willert.de/ff_functions/_FFOpenURL.php") Then
                MsgBox(0,"","It's open")
            Else
                MsgBox(0,"","Is there a problem")
            EndIf
        Else
            MsgBox(0,"","Couldn't connect")
        EndIf
    EndIf

And I get this as a result =

__FFStartProcess ==> General Error: Error reading registry entry for FireFox.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeMozillaMozilla Firefox*CurrentVersion*MainPathToExe
Error from RegRead: 1

The problem is that the registry entry does oint to the right place for Firefox so what's wrong?? Any ideas please?

Blessings

What OS? 32 or 64 bit? Also, what version of Autoit?

Are you saying the the registry key does exist at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeMozillaMozilla FirefoxCurrentVersionMainPathToExe?

Do you have MozRepl installed?

FF UDF need MozRepl

Thanks so much Universalist, now I know that this won't work either for what I want as I'm trying to do code that will work for many different machines - to download a file from a secure website and I can't rely on other people having this addon... O well. We keep looking.

There is an "extension" UDF (FFEx.au3) that provides some supplemental functions. One of these is _FF_MozRepl_Detect, which can detect if MozRepl is installed and install it if it isn't available.

      Go create a quick account in Zapier and go to https://zapier.com/app/dashboard and make some Zaps!
      Just need to click the specific instance of an .open-menu button and then click its a.run (anchor) element.
      Doing this IE.au3 script just causing to click its container element:
      $target = 1; Target the first instance #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IEAttach("Dashboard - Zapier") $count = 0; $tags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") For $tag in $tags $class_value = $tag.GetAttribute("class") If $class_value = "open-menu" Then $count += 1 if $count = $target Then MsgBox(0, "Instance: ", $count) ; $tag.fireEvent("onmousedown") ; _IEAction($tag, "click") ; $tag.fireEvent("onmouseup") ; Or this but not working ; $tag.Click EndIf EndIf Next I also tried to do it using FF.au3
      $target = 1; Target the first instance #Include <Array.au3> #Include <FF.au3> $count = 0; If _FFConnect(Default, Default, 3000) Then $aArray = _FFXPath( "//div[@class='open-menu']", "", 7 ) ; _ArrayDisplay($aArray) For $tag in $aArray $count += 1 if $count = $target Then MsgBox(0, "Instance: ", $count) _FFClick($tag) EndIf Next EndIf Error: _FFClick ==> No match: $sElement: [number]
      Could some help me how to click such buttons on such kind of a dynamic page?

      I have a script that sends multiple lines of text to a textbox using Firefox. I using _FFSetValue($sCellValue[7], "line one" & @CR & "line two", "id") from ff.au3. If it's a single line of text it works but MozRepl give the following error with multiple lines of text.
      Error:  
      __FFSend: try{FFau3.simulateEvent(window.content.top.document.getElementById('line one
      line two'),'Event','change',13);}catch(e){'_FFCmd_Err';};
      __FFWaitForRepl ==> Error return value: MozRepl ....>
      __FFSend: ;
      __FFRecv:
      __FFSend: FFau3.WCD=window.content.top.document;
      __FFWaitForRepl ==> Error return value: MozRepl ....>
      __FFRecv: !!! SyntaxError: unterminated string literal
      Details:

       [object HTMLDocument] - {mainForm: {...}, location: {...}, getElementsByName: function() {...}, getItems: function() {...}, open: function() {...}, close: function() {...}, write: function() {...}, ...}
      !!! SyntaxError: unterminated string literal
      Will MozRepl plugin for Firefox send multiple lines of text to a textbox?
      Thanks for your help.

      Hey guys, I'm pretty new to autoit and I'm trying to use FF.au3 to extract some cells from a table which looks like that:
       
      <table border="0" cellspacing="5" cellpadding="1"> <tr> <td class="BlueInputKind" align="left" nowrap>HEADING1</td> <td class="BlueInputKind" nowrap>HEADING2</td> <td class="BlueInputKind" nowrap>HEADING3</td> <td class="BlueInputKind" nowrap>HEADING4</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="BlackTextEng" dir="ltr">Text1</td> <td class="BlackTextCenter" valign="top" dir="rtl">Number</td> <td nowrap class="BlackText" valign="top" nowrap>Text3</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="BlackTextEng" dir="ltr">Text1</td> <td class="BlackTextCenter" valign="top" dir="rtl">Number</td> <td nowrap class="BlackText" valign="top" nowrap>Text3</td> </tr> <tr> <td class="BlackTextEng" dir="ltr">Text1</td> <td class="BlackTextCenter" valign="top" dir="rtl">Number</td> <td nowrap class="BlackText" valign="top" nowrap>Text3</td> </tr> My end goal is to:
      If Text1 == something && Number > SomeNumber Then DoSomething I managed to connect to firefox using repl and clicked some links etc but I'm not even close to achieving something like the above. Any help will be appreciated.
