IE not attaching to any IE window

4 posts in this topic

Hello!

When I run this script, it opens them all in separate windows. I tried creating an IE in different ways, but all worked pretty much the same way.

I need these three sites to open in a separate window together in tabs.

But note that any combination of one, two or all three of these sites can be conditioned to open (= 1 or 0), though they always must be in a separate window, whether another IE window is already open or not.

P.S. $webXX variables are read from ini file.

$oIE = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
Sleep(1000)

If $webGoogle = 1 Then
    $url = "www.google.com" ; Atea ONE
    $oIE = _IECreate($url, 1, 1, 1, 0)
    ;$Google = _IEAttach($oIE, "hwnd")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    Send("{ENTER}")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
EndIf

If $webFB = 1 Then
    $url = "www.facebook.com"
    $oIE = _IECreate($url, 1, 1, 1, 0)
    ;$FB = _IEAttach($oIE, "hwnd")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    Send("{TAB}")
    Send($pwVIMS)
    Send("{ENTER}")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
EndIf

If $webYT = 1 Then
    $url = www.youtube.com
    $oIE = _IECreate($url, 1, 1, 1, 0)
    ;$YT = _IEAttach($oIE, "hwnd")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    Send("{ENTER}")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
EndIf


_WinWaitActivate("[CLASS:IEFrame]", "")
WinMove("[CLASS:IEFrame]", "", $x, $y, $w, $h)

You can open a new tab using __IENavigate (note the double underscore; search the forum for some examples).

As I found in forums, a handle is not returned by that function, which makes _IELoadWait() not work. I don' think that is an option for me as I need to interact with the page before moving on.

How do open a window of IE with multiple tabs one after another in a stable way?

I have multiple pages like the IF part that need to open if true, some controls are sent to each page when it loads.

$oIE = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
Sleep(1000)


If $web1 = 1 Then
    $url = "https://www.website.com"
    $oIE = _IECreate($url, 1, 1, 1, 0)
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
    Send("{ENTER}")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
EndIf

You don't need to use _IELoadWait with __IENavigate, or with _IECreate, both those functions have a parameter that causes it to internally call _IELoadWait. In fact your example script in post #3 is using _IELoadWait already, so using it twice is just redundant.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
