Adding numbers in url string (Please Help)

6 posts in this topic

Hello, I am trying to edit a code in autoit.

Currently the code will open a webpage and then load a page and cache the page into a folder for me. However, when it reloads the page I need it to fill in the red X with a number. Here is the line where I would like the numbers to be added

_IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.testwebsite.com/start=X0")

For example, I can start on "/start=10"

but when my page refreshes I need it to display 20 then 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and etc

When it gets to 100 I need it to go to 100 and then 200, 300, 400, 500 and etc.

It would be helpful if I could inform it on what number I would like it to stop at but if I cant, 1000 would be a great stopping point.

------I already have the rest of the entire code-----

I just need help on getting autoit to add the numbers and then allow it to show up in the url when the screen refreshes

 

THANKS SO MUCH in advance !!!!

Simple For loops will work

$url = "http://www.testwebsite.com/start="
$txt = ""
For $i = 1 to 9
   $urltogo = $url & $i & "0"
   $txt &= $urltogo & @crlf
Next
For $i = 1 to 10
   $urltogo = $url & $i & "00"
   $txt &= $urltogo & @crlf
Next
Msgbox(0,"", $txt)

Edit

or

Local $url = "http://www.testwebsite.com/start=", $txt = ""
For $i = 1 to 19
   $urltogo = $url & (($i<10) ? $i : (Mod($i, 10)+1)*10)*10
   $txt &= $urltogo & @crlf
Next
Msgbox(0,"", $txt)

Another idea:

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

Global $num = 10

$Form1 = GUICreate("", 154, 44)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Hit", 8, 8, 75, 25)
$Label1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel($num, 104, 16, 36, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit
        Case $Button1
            _NumHit()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func _NumHit()
    If $num > 90 AND $num < 1000 Then
        $num += 100
    ElseIf $num < 100 Then
        $num += 10
    EndIf
    GUICtrlSetData($Label1, $num)
EndFunc

And another.

Local $url = "http://www.testwebsite.com/start=30"
Local $iStop = 600

Local $sNewUrl = StringRegExpReplace($url, "^(.+?)\d+$", "${1}") & _NumHit(StringRegExpReplace($url, "^.+?(\d+)$", "${1}"), $iStop)

MsgBox(0, "Result", "Old Url = " & $url & @LF & @LF & "New Url = " & $sNewUrl)


Func _NumHit($num, $iEnd)
    If $num < $iEnd Then
        If $num >= 100 And $num < 1000 Then
            $num += 100
        ElseIf $num < 100 Then
            $num += 10
        EndIf
        Return $num
    Else
        Return $iEnd
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_NumHit

Okay, so obviously I am the Ultimate Noob here at AutoITscript. And any of you helping me can obviously do this piece of code if you really wanted to LOL

So I am still having problems.

I would like the script to automatically go to the next page of google, by auto filling the last part of the url and the refreshing to the next search page, caching the current screen in my chosen folder. I have edited it to the best of my abilities but it just shoots right to page 1000. This is so awesome and so close I have posted the entire code below, hopefully someone can help me tweak it to work perfectly.

THANK YOU everyone for posting all the codes you have. This AutoITscript stuff is intense, and I see that there are many ways for a question to be answered. There is just no simple fix to a broad question. So I hope by me posting the entire script can help all of you in assisting me in perfecting this script. 

#include <IE.au3>
#include <array.au3>
#Include <File.au3>
#include <string.au3>
#include <INet.au3>

$googleProfilePage = InputBox("Profile Page", "Please enter the progile url?");
$i = 1;This will keep track of how many pofiles we have pulled from google

$oIE = _IECreate($googleProfilePage);This will open the google Page

While 1;This will run forever
   if $i = 1 Then;This is so it waits for me to login on the first one
      msgbox(1, "Ready?", "Let me know when you are ready?");
   EndIf;This is so we skip this if we dont want to login
   If $i = 1001 Then;
      Msgbox(1, "Done", "I belive we are done");
   EndIf

$RandomSleepTime = Random(500, 2000);This will give a random wait time for the webpage
$RandomSaveTime = Random (500, 1000);This will give a random sleep time for the saving of the data

_IELoadWait($oIE);Waits for the webpage to load

Sleep ($RandomSleepTime);Sleeps for assurance
$googleData = _IEDocReadHTML($oIE);Reads the google HTML
Sleep (100);This is a sleep for assurance
$FileLocation = ("C:\Users\Donna\Desktop\google-scrape\profile_" & $i & ".html");This gives the file location as a varibale

_FileCreate($FileLocation);This will create the file in the location specified
FileOpen($FileLocation);This will open the file in that location
FileWrite($FileLocation, $googleData);This will write the data to that location


Sleep(500)

$url = "https://www.google.com/search?q=test&start="
$txt = ""
For $i = 1 to 9
   $urltogo = $url & $i & "0"
   $txt &= $urltogo & @crlf
Next
For $i = 1 to 10
   $urltogo = $url & $i & "00"
   $txt &= $urltogo & @crlf
Next

Sleep(500)
_IENavigate($oIE, $urltogo )


Sleep ($RandomSaveTime);Sleeps for assurance

$i = $i + 1;This will make it go to the next profile for orginization
WEnd;This is for when we are done NEVER

THANKS AGAIN!!!!

If you want something faster you can do it like this

$url = "https://www.google.com/search?q=test&start="
$dir = @desktopdir & "\google-scrape\"
If not FileExists($dir) Then DirCreate($dir)
For $i = 0 to 9
   $urltogo = $url & $i & "0"
   $content = BinaryToString(InetRead($urltogo))

   $FileLocation = $dir & "profile_" & $i & ".html"
   FileOpen($FileLocation, 1)  ; open the file in writing mode
   FileWrite($FileLocation, $content)  ;This will write the data to that location
   FileClose($FileLocation)
   Sleep(100)
Next
