Using CreateObj ("shell.explorer.2")

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I created a GUI that contains 2 tabs with 2 embedded Internet Explorer instances.

To create the embedded instances of the browser I have used the exemple in the help file with the shell.explorer.2 method

Local $tab,$tabIresolve,$tabEtest

$Form1 = GUICreate("Little Toolkit", 1100, 550, (@DesktopWidth - 1100) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 520) / 2, BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS, $WS_CLIPCHILDREN))
$tab = GUICtrlCreateTab(10, 30, 1090, 420)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1,$GUI_DOCKAUTO)
$tabIres = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("iRe")
$oIE = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")
$GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj ($oIE, 10, 50, 1090, 400)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1,$GUI_DOCKAUTO)
_IEnavigate($oIE,http://www.google.com)
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_SHOW); will be display first
$GUI_Button_iRe = GUICtrlCreateButton("iRes", 710, 480, 100, 30)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0x73C9FF)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x0)
$GUI_Button_iReTopics = GUICtrlCreateButton("Topics", 900, 480, 100, 30)
GUICtrlSetColor(-1,0x73C9FF)
GUICtrlSetBkColor(-1, 0x0)
$tabE = GUICtrlCreateTabItem("test")
$oIE2 = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")
$GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj ($oIE2, 10, 50, 1090, 400)
GUICtrlSetResizing(-1,$GUI_DOCKAUTO)
_IEnavigate($oIE2,"http://www.google.com")
GUICtrlCreateTabItem(""); end tabitem

GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

 

 

After I tested the script for about 10 times to see if there were some issues with the script I started to have problems with the normal browser. When I was trying to open the normal internet explorer, while the autoIT script was closed, the browser couldn't load the required page and after a few second it was crashing. The internet explorer closed automatically. But here is the thing, when I was opening the google page from favorites the browser was working.  I'm using IE 7.

Does this error have something to do with the fact that I used the shell.explorer.2 method when I embedded the IE in the GUI?

I'm very interested to know you opinions.
