Use this to open your webpage:

run( "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE -new http://www.google.com","")

The key to this line is the "-new" switch, which will open IE in a new window. Enjoy!

I've been using that alot lately but one question I was wondering about and have had a hard time get working is a func to wait for the page to load before continuing. I use sleep right now but sometimes pages don't load in the time i gave it. It would be nice to have it run after the page is loaded. any ideas?

WinWait ( "title of page" )

Using IE.au3 (see my sig) and the AutoIt beta, the following will open a webpage and will wait for the webpage load to be fully completed before returning control back to your script:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate() _IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.google.com")

heres the exact code i have in scite

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate() _IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.google.com")
send("test")

I'm used to using a func like func("title","whatever",whatever")

Is this code of yours supposed to be the same?

Based on the error message about the ObjName function it also looks like you are not actually running the latest beta -- if your're using SciTe, make certain you use Alt-F5 instead of F5 alone to run the code or it will not use the beta when it runs.

I have done as you said and all is much better. Although i get this error in the log at the bottom. heres my script as a test

#include <ie.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate() _IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.google.com")

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\ie.au3 (776) : ==> Unable to parse line.:

If IsObj($o_object.elements) Then If IsObj($o_object.e^ ERROR

I am really new with the program, using these UDFs. what am i doing wrong?

It would still appear that there is something wrong with your IE.au3 download. I'm guessing that you would get the same error in a script that had nothing but the #include <IE.au3>

I'd suggest that you delete all copies of IE.au3 from your system and do the download again making certain that everything goes smoothly.

I can't believe how difficult this is OK heres what I've done. I've installed SciTe4AutoIt3.exe, SciTe4Au3Upd.exe and AutoIT3_UDF_Update_3.1.0.exe. My defs are set to 3.1.1.76 beta. I have right clicked and saved the IE.au3 from the first post in your sig. Says there is 1000+ d/ls of it. IE.au3 is saved to c:\program files\autoit3\include

using this script as a test, should put in the word test in the google search after its loaded.

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate() _IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.google.com")
send("test")

if I hit F5 alone i get this.

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3(275,39) : ERROR: ObjName(): undefined function.

I am at my cpu at work now too so I know its not PC related. only 1 copy of ie.au3 on this one. I have also tried F5 and alt+f5 in IE.au3 only and I get the same message. Am I d/l it from the wrong spot?

Running: (3.1.1.0):C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe

Now that you've included more of the SciTe console output you'll see that you are not in fact running the Beta when you execute with Alt-F5. It should reference 3.1.1.63 or higher for this to work.

I'm a little surprised that IE.au3 doesn't give you an error prior to line 776, but it certainly won't work with 3.1.1.0

Please go to the Downloads section, Beta at the bottom of the page, AutoIt and install the most recent beta on top of what you already have. Make certain the the new version number is reflected in the SciTe output when you run with Alt-F5.

Thanks. I tell you if it wasn't for the support of people like yourself this program would not be where it is today. A program is only as strong as the community that supports it. thanks again
