Get IE History

Recommended Posts

AutID

This is more tricky than I thought it would be. I have been searching for some time now and can't seem to find an answer.
To find the IE history manually I go to "C:UsersuserAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsHistory" and from there I select the subfolder(Today, Yesterday etc...) and check the files in it.

So following this logic I came up with this which should normally work but it doesn't.

#include <File.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
Local $File = RegRead ( "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders", "History" )
;ConsoleWrite($File & @LF)
Local $hSearch = _FileListToArray($File, Default, Default, True)
_ArrayDisplay($hSearch)

It returns some other files besides the Today, Yesterday folders.
I assume this happens because they are not actually folders however since FileListToArray second parameter is set to default, which means all files if I understand correctly, then it should also return the paths of theToday folder.

Anyone any ideas on this?

Hello and sorry for being away. Happy new year to everyone.

I have tested both of them but they both use a third party app to be able to read the history which I am trying to avoid.
Something else someone?

      Strange thing. When I load a page in IE and inspect, the elements are clearly there but when I try to find them using _IEGetObjById or _IETagNameGetCollection or even using JS right in the IE console, the elements can't be found.
      Have you guys even encoutered something similar?
      Site's HTML
      <div id="lastdays"> <div class="radio"> <span class="radio"><input id="lastdays_radio" type="radio" name="rangepanel_group" value="lastdays_radio"></span> </div> <div class="content"> <label for="lastdays_radio">Za posledních</label> <label for="lastdays_radio"> </label> <input name="lastdays_days" type="text" value="1" maxlength="3" id="lastdays_days" class="text days" onclick="document.getElementById('lastdays_radio').checked=true;" onfocus="document.getElementById('lastdays_radio').checked=true;"> <label for="lastdays_radio"> </label> <select name="lastdays_period" id="lastdays_period" class="combo" onclick="document.getElementById('lastdays_radio').checked=true;" onfocus="document.getElementById('lastdays_radio').checked=true;"> <option value="D">dnů</option> <option value="W">týdnů</option> <option selected="selected" value="M">měsíců</option> </select> </div> </div> document.getElementById("lastdays_days"); //returns null in IE

      Greetings!
      I am in need of your guidance once again. I searched the forums for clicking in span, clicking by class, clicking without an ID or Name, etc., but I am unable to find a solution for my problem.
      I am trying to expand this tree in IE. There is an arrow ( > ) that i need to click, but I can't find a way to do it . Alternatively, I can double-click the text "Servers", but that seems to be even more troublesome. I will have to do this 2-3 more times as the tree expands.
      There appears to be an ID for the tree, simply called "tree", but that isn't working when I send a click to it.

      ;Open an IE session and navigate to pgAdmin. Global $oIE = _IECreate($pgAdmin) ;Maximize the IE window. WinSetState(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd"), "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) Sleep(2000) ;Expand the tree $oTree = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "tree") _IEAction($oTree, "click") Any ideas?

      Hello all!   I'm stuck at a seemingly simple part of my script. Using IE, I'm filling out a web form that involves clicking a "Browse" button and selecting a file. Once the file explorer dialog opens, however, I am unable to control it.
      I have a string, which is the name of the file I want, and I'm trying to insert it into the 'File name:' text box in the dialog (which already has focus), but it doesn't get inserted. I've tried ClipPut and Send. 

      What's even more concerning is, when I close the dialog, the string is then pasted into the very next window that has focus, which is often SciTE. It's like that Browse's file open dialog halts all processes. Once it's closed, the script continues.
      ;~ Open a IE window and navigate to the login page. Global $oIE = _IECreate($urlBBLogin) _IELoadWait($oIE) ;~ Recognize the form on this page (login input boxes). Local $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "login") Local $oTextLogin = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "user_id") Local $oTextPass = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "password") ;~ Enter the Automation user credentials into the form. _IEFormElementSetValue($oTextLogin, $bbUsername) _IEFormElementSetValue($oTextPass, $bbPassword) ;~ Click the Login button. _IEFormSubmit($oForm) _IELoadWait($oIE) ;~ Navigate to the feedfile upload page. _IENavigate($oIE, $urlUpload) _IELoadWait($oIE) ;~ Click the Browse button Local $Browse = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "feedFile_chooseLocalFile") _IEAction($Browse, "Click") Local $Browse = WinWait("Choose File to Upload") ;~ Open the file we created. WinActivate($Browse) Send($finalFile) Has anyone else experienced this problem? Any ideas to get around it? Am I approaching this the wrong way?
      Any support is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.

      I used the below to wait for it to load until the 60ms timeout but still it isnt working  :
       
      #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
      #AutoIt3Wrapper_Outfile=ps_test.exe
      #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
      #include <Constants.au3>
      #include <IE_v1.au3>
      If $CmdLine[0] < 2 Then
         MsgBox($MB_OK, "Usage", "ps_WAN <username> <password>")
      Else
         wan($CmdLine[1], $CmdLine[2])
      EndIf
      Func wan($email, $password)
       $oIE = _IECreate()
      $ieo=_IENavigate($oIE, "https://cccc")
      _IELoadWait($ieo,0,60)
       Local $hWnd = WinExists("Windows Security")
      if $hWnd = 0 Then
         MsgBox($MB_OK, "Usage", "timeout")
         EndIf
      ControlFocus("Windows Security", "", "[CLASS:DirectUIHWND]")
      ControlFocus("Windows Security", "", "[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]")

      I am trying to wait for a pop up in IE with the title of "filed". I believe it is in a IE-frame.  I am not having any luck attaching to it. The best thing I have been able to do is find the title using the below code. 
      Is there a way I can just make AutoIt wait until it finds the  "Filed" value from the below code?
      Thank you for any help, I am probably making this harder then it really is. 
      $oIE = _IEAttach("Meditech") $oInputs1 = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") For $oInput1 in $oInputs1 If StringStripWS($oInput1.innertext,1) = "Filed" Then $target = $oInput1 ExitLoop Else $target = "NOT FOUND" EndIf Next I have tried different variations of
      _IEAttach("MEDITECH","Filed") WinWaitActive("MEDITECH", "Filed") Here is what the popup looks like.
