Recommended Posts

I am trying to read text from firefox using the FF.au3 script.

But foreign letters are not displayes correctly; letters like "ö", "ä", "č", "ć".

What am i doing wrong?

Here is an example of the problem:

#include <FF.au3>

_FFStart("www.wetter.de","", 2)

$text = _FFReadtext()


Here is the result i get:


What am i doing wrong?

Thank you

No this is not your fault, the encoding is not correct.

Try this :

MsgBox(0, "", BinaryToString(StringToBinary($text, 1), 4))

Br, FireFox

Yes, thanks i managed it with BinaryToStrung().

Is it possible tor read the text of a Firefox  Tab that is currently in background.

I would like to be able to work on other tabs, while the script reads text on a background tab, but  if i use:


This function reads text but only on the current active tab, so if i browse through the tabs it always just reads text on the tab that i currently use.


Any solution?

Thank you
