scite au3 recorder not detecting scrolling

Recommended Posts

i was trying to record to see if recorder can detect scrolloing so i recorded myself first opening a page on google chrome and then scrolling down and clicking on a link but when i tried to run the code the scrollling didnt work though it did perform rest of the actions then i tried to scrolll using keyboard keys and it worked so then my question is it just a problem with my pc not installing autoit properly or that function mouse scrolling dosent work in general or its just with google chrome that the scrolling function has problems

I don't use the recorder much but as far as I am aware it does not record mouse scrolling. Here is an example using the MouseWheel function.

#region --- Au3Recorder generated code Start (v3.3.9.5 KeyboardLayout=00000409)  ---

#region --- Internal functions Au3Recorder Start ---
Func _Au3RecordSetup()
Local $aResult = DllCall('User32.dll', 'int', 'GetKeyboardLayoutNameW', 'wstr', '')
If $aResult[1] <> '00000409' Then
  MsgBox(64, 'Warning', 'Recording has been done under a different Keyboard layout' & @CRLF & '(00000409->' & $aResult[1] & ')')


Func _WinWaitActivate($title,$text,$timeout=0)
    If Not WinActive($title,$text) Then WinActivate($title,$text)

#endregion --- Internal functions Au3Recorder End ---

;change for your computer
Run('"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"')

_WinWaitActivate("New Tab - Google Chrome","")
_WinWaitActivate("Autoit - Google Search - Google Chrome","")

Send("{TAB}") ;<<<< tab needed to give window focus

#endregion --- Au3Recorder generated code End ---

;give time for page to load

;scroll down
MouseWheel("down", 100)

ya i too tried using mousewheel function but it didnt work anywhere not just google chrome maybe my pc has got problems well i got a possible solution using 

#include <IE.au3>


$oIE = _IECreate("http://freshmeat.net/")

$oIE.document.parentwindow.scroll(0, $oIE.document.body.scrollHeight)

found it on googling a bit on forums this works pretty well

If you are going to use IE functions and you are trying to click on a link then you should look at _IELinkClickByText and _IELinkClickByIndex in the help. That way you don't have to scroll at all.

Simple example.

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("google.com")
_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "Images") <<<clicks on the image link

ya well i tried using these functions for instagram page 

in their user profile if a person has many images you usually scroll down and more images load well thats what the scrolling was required for since i tried to use these functions to send a click on the load more more option they have at the bottom of page but when i run _IELinkClickByText  nothing happens _IE status shows no match found so m guessing its not a link n just a javascript function which gets active when it cumz in view or focus
