New IECreatePseudoEmbedded() with few important improvements


Recommended Posts


I created a function that create embedded IE frame in autoit GUI.

The benefits of this function over _IECreateEmbedded() in IE.au3 are very critical:

1) IECreatePseudoEmbedded() will create IE frame from the laset IE verison that installed on the computer.

_IECreateEmbedded() supports up to IE7.

The benefits of this function over the other functions from here:

'?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

1) the first benefit is that when my function start internet explorer for the frame, you will not see the IE window in full screen for about a second before the frame is created.

I upgraded the technique of the my predecessors. so now the frame is created in a more clean way.

2) I did Optimzation in some areas

3) The IE frame will create without having to finish to load the page and open internet explorer.

4) If error occurred, then you will see in the frame the reason of the error.

Thank you very much for slbmeh , DaleHohm , JohnOne .

With their example, I got inspired.



#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <GuiEdit.au3>

#include <WinAPIEx.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#Include <Array.au3>



Func Example($Url)
    Local $Form1 , $Button1 , $IE_Pid , $Close_Button , $IECreatePseudo , $oIE , $aMain , $nMsg

    #region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
    $Form1 = GUICreate("", 705, 671)
    $Close_Button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Close", 600, 632, 89, 25)
    $IECreatePseudo = IECreatePseudoEmbedded($Url, $Form1, 8, 16, 673, 609)
    If IsArray($IECreatePseudo) Then
        $oIE = $IECreatePseudo[0]
        $aMain = $IECreatePseudo[1]

        If IsObj($oIE) Then
            GUICtrlSetPos($oIE, 0, 0, 600, 632)

    #endregion ### END Koda GUI section ###
    WinSetOnTop($Form1, "", 1)

    While 1
        $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
        Switch $nMsg
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE , $Close_Button

You need tp download the UDF and then copy the function IECreatePseudoEmbedded() into the example.

I hope you find it useful.

Please check the code and tell me if it works properly.
If there are bugs, please report to me. I wish you would fix problems by yourself (if you find any) and give me the patch here. I would love to have improvements.

When you report me, please include in your report the following:
* Your operating system, 64bit / 32 bit

Thank you
