How to get the Title of a Link ?

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

How can I take the title of a link, just like the browsers does ? For example , as you know, all the tabs from the browser, have a name, based on what link is opened in them. So how can I take that name of a link with AutoIT and without the help of the browser ?

Yes, the examples are the best methods to explain it better :

Look up WinGetTitle in the help file.

Given a URL, you could use the WinHTTP UDF to read the web page and then extract the title from the returned data.

have a look to all the _IE* function in the help

maybe the _IELinkGetCollection function can be of help for your case

when you have a reference to the link, use the .href property to "extract" the url of that link

(see the example in the help)


sorry, misunderstood your question
what you need should be the ".document.title" property
if you use IE try this as example:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate("")

Great Information Danp2 ! I did what you said, and it worked :

So you just need to get the source of the webpage via this function : _IEDocReadHTML() , then extract the text that is enclosed between the <title> </title> tags !

Thats the name of the link !

Thankyou so much !

      Hi guys
      In this publication I will share with you a function i have written it
      This function enables you to get names of days in three languages
      English, French and Arabic
      It automatically recognizes the language of your system
      If you want, you can customize the display language you want
      English = 0
      Arabic = 1
      French = 2

      Could someone please explain to me how you can use Func_SearchLastState more than once in the same script.
      My situation is I am trying to use it in the same script under different case scenarios:
      Case 1
      Case 2
      Even though these are under different case scenarios the Func_SearchLastState is getting picked up as a duplicate function name.
      How can I use this function more than one in my script without getting the error?

      Choose a directory of link files to replace substring paths.

      Hi everyone, 
      Following this page:
      I have to download the BIOS for the E5440 model. As I don't know in which order Dell will place the description and the link to download the file (also because the 5440 can be put in first) I'd like to make  the following piece of code to search only first the link that deals with the E5440:
      (The only thing I'm sure is that the string E5440 will be either in the first or the second position and I need to download the corresponding link)
      Local $sRead = InetRead('', 1) ConsoleWrite(BinaryToString($sRead) & @CRLF) Local $aData = _StringBetween(BinaryToString($sRead), 'Type: BIOS', 'Category:') TrayTip("", "Downloading latest BIOS Version, please wait...", 10, 3) Local $aLinks = _StringBetween($aData[0], '<A HREF="/', '"><IMG') For $i = 0 To UBound($aLinks) - 1 $aLinks[$i] = '' & $aLinks[$i] Next Local $hDownload = InetGet($aLinks[0], @DesktopDir & "\BIOSE5450.exe", $INET_FORCERELOAD, $INET_DOWNLOADBACKGROUND) Do Sleep(250) Until InetGetInfo($hDownload, $INET_DOWNLOADCOMPLETE) Local $iBytesSize = InetGetInfo($hDownload, $INET_DOWNLOADREAD) Local $iFileSize = Round(FileGetSize(@DesktopDir & "\BIOSE5450.exe") / 1048576) InetClose($hDownload) MsgBox(0, "", "The latest E5450 BIOS (" & $iFileSize & " MB) have been downloaded")
      I was thinking of an string search in the array but all my attempts failed for now.
      Can someone could give me a hand over here.
