Repricing website - is it possible with autoit?

Recommended Posts


Dear community,

I hope you can help me out on this one. Cause it's a bit hard for me to start, since it's my first time with AutoIT... :*

I need to know, is this a possible thing to do with AutoIT?


The point from where I'm starting is:

- I have a website

- There is a foreign website which sells goods at daily calculated prices


What I'm trying to do is:

- create a script for MY website that refreshes these prices of the foreign website at a certain time, let's say once a day at 6 pm, and show the results at my website content


Thank you very much for your help & information

Welcome to the autoit forum :)

What you need is php, or another web oriented language.

AutoIt is not designed for this.

Br, FireFox.


OS : Win XP SP2 (32 bits) / Win 7 SP1 (64 bits) / Win 8 (64 bits) | Autoit version: latest stable / beta.
Hardware : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10Ghz / 8 GiB RAM DDR3.

My UDFs : Skype UDF | TrayIconEx UDF | GUI Panel UDF | Excel XML UDF | Is_Pressed_UDF

My Projects : YouTube Multi-downloader | FTP Easy-UP | Lock'n | WinKill | AVICapture | Skype TM | Tap Maker | ShellNew | Scriptner | Const Replacer | FT_Pocket | Chrome theme maker

My Examples : Capture toolIP Camera | Crosshair | Draw Captured Region | Picture Screensaver | Jscreenfix | Drivetemp | Picture viewer

My Snippets : Basic TCP | Systray_GetIconIndex | Intercept End task | Winpcap various | Advanced HotKeySet | Transparent Edit control

It may not be designed for it, but what you describe is entirely possible.

My guess the actions would be

Grab the page that has the price

Scrape the data with stringregex

Compose a page to overwrite your page with the new data.

Write the page

refresh your web server.
