Just had an idea and wanted to know where to start. I want to download a screenshot of a website automatically into a .png .jpg ect format so I can then set it as my desktop background.
This might be for for news: When the latest news is added to a website a screenshot of that website is saved and added to my desktop background.
I have tried using website that already do the screenshot but you have to open the website and click the button for it to generate one and thus InetGet does not help.
ConsoleWrite("Hello Dolly on Line 1" & @CRLF) #include <IE.au3> ConsoleWrite("Hello Dolly on Line 5" & @CRLF) Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.autoitscript.com") ConsoleWrite("Hello Dolly on Line 10" & @CRLF) Can anyone put me on the right track to troubleshoot this one.. the IE browser is not opening.. it is not my primary browser since FF is but that has not been a problem in the past.. it all seems to work including compile but the generation of the IE browser.. Never had any problem before.. below is the results of the run.. any ideas on where I might look.. that is the only error i get and its only after a 30 second delay.. I suppose a time out..

I am still really new with AutoIT. We are using it to automate logging into web sites and I have encountered problems with focus. The target web page is configured to put the cursor into the first text field (username) when the page is loaded, and when I run the AutoIT script, which does the log in seems like it is just not starting where I expect it to be.
I have been kind of using ToolTip() to kind of help with debugging, but now I am wondering if the calls to ToolTip() are causing the focus to be messed up.
For example, at least visually, when the ToolTip() is called, I can see the cursor disappear from the web page text field and they when I do anything that is supposed to send keystrokes, they are going off somwhere else ("never-neverland").
But when I remove some of the ToolTip() calls, it works correctly.
So the questions I have are:
1) Do the ToolTip() calls interfere with/change where the focus on the target page are?
2) In general, what are the "rules" for where ToolTip can be used "safely" (== doesn't interfere with focus)?
Hi, for a script of mine, I wish to keep a time frame on till how the program will work.. basically, I want the program to read the date and if the read date < 'a particular date', the program continues, else it exit. I don't want to read the time from the computer as the program can be fooled by resetting the pc time. is there a way to read time from internet - so that the user cannot fool the program by date reset? thanks
Hi everyone, hope you are doing fine
Well, I'm currently writing a small script that goes to a certain web page, finds the first link of a specified section and download the file associated to this link.
Depending on the computer that the tool is launched, the script gets the computer model and search in the (provided here) ini file which link to follow.
At first, Dell was kind enough to provide only one link but now, they provide two of them. The first one is now a .txt file ( ) whereas my script has been designed to download only the fist and latest link released for the BIOS Update.
Here's the current code which is working with only the first and latest link of the BIOS category:
So the question is:
In the case of double links like shown in the picture above, how it is possible to tell the script to download only the link containing an the .exe file?
Of course, I could have changed the array result to  instead of  [which is working] but it seems that Dell does that randomly and that I deal with a lot of computer models.
Thanks for the help you can provide,
