Create a browser window and maximize it

Recommended Posts

computergroove
#include <IE.au3>

_IECreate("www.google.com")
Sleep(5000)
WinSetState("Google - Internet Explorer","",@SW_MAXIMIZE)

The browser window opens and it goes to google.com but it will not maximize. I have also tried:

#include <IE.au3>

Local $Browser = _IECreate("www.google.com")
Sleep(5000)
WinSetState($Browser,"",@SW_MAXIMIZE)

Also doesn't work. I'm running windows 8.1 x64 and internet explorer 11.0.9600.16384. Help!

Use the window title like this "Google - Windows Internet Explorer" 

 

Edit - I don't think you need the sleep function.

Local $Ie = _IECreate("www.google.com",0,1,1,1)
;Sleep(2000)
WinSetState("Google - Windows Internet Explorer","",@SW_MAXIMIZE)

You can get the window handle by using _IEPropertyGet ($oIE, "hwnd") :

#Include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com/forum")

$hwndIE = _IEPropertyGet ($oIE, "hwnd")
WinSetState($hwndIE, "", @SW_MINIMIZE)

You can also do like this

$oIE = ObjCreate ( 'InternetExplorer.Application' )
$oIE.Visible = 1
$oIE.Left = 0
$oIE.Top = 0
$oIE.Width = @DesktopWidth
$oIE.Height = @DesktopHeight
$oIE.Navigate ( "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum" )

      Hi all,
      I'm having some trouble restoring a program which uses a normal AutoIT-GUI and is used as a ToolKit for our customers to open different (external) tools, check their network connections or ping different destinations. Almost all customers are running this script on Win7 x64. 
      What do I want to do?
      When the program is already running and the user tries to start it for a second time, it should exit the second instance after activating/restoring the first instance.
      What did I do to integrate this?
      I used a little piece of script found on the forums to prevent opening a second instance and modified it as follows:
      $g_szVersion = "VSOL ToolKit" If WinExists($g_szVersion) Then Local $gState = WinGetState($g_szVersion) MsgBox(0,"","gState = " & $gState) ;For debugging purposes WinSetState($g_szVersion,"",@SW_SHOW) MsgBox(0,"","gState = " & $gState) ;For debugging purposes WinSetState($g_szVersion,"",@SW_RESTORE) MsgBox(0,"","gState = " & $gState) ;For debugging purposes WinActivate($g_szVersion) Exit EndIf AutoItWinSetTitle($g_szVersion) I have tried it with only the @SW_SHOW, only the @SW_RESTORE, both of them in a different order, same difference, it doesn't work.
      What does happen then?
      It detects the current state (when it's minimized) as '5', which means enabled and hidden. After setting the state to show, the state changes to 7. Restoring doesn't change the state. But what is really odd, is that the window doesn't appear but AutoIt seems to create a néw window with the same title as the existing one. 

      It doesn't matter if the window was originally minimized by clicking the minimize button in the GUI or by a line of code in my script. For example, when users open a software package from within my script, a similar function to this one will be called:
      Func VSOL_FFTOOLS_SHOW_DOWNLOADS() GUISetState(@SW_MINIMIZE,$VSOL_BACKEND) ShellExecute(@UserProfileDir & "\Downloads") EndFunc The only thing that does work, is when the window is running in a non-minimized state (somewhere behind the current window), it gets activated and receives the focus when trying to start the second instance.
      If anyone could help me out with this one, I'd be forever thankful :-)
      Thanks in advance!
      Kind regards,
      Jan Geurts

      Hi 
       
      I'm trying to:
      1) Open a hidden browser session
      2) Do some stuff in the background
      3)  Make the hidden window visible
       
      This is my code:
       
      Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2) ;1=start, 2=subStr, 3=exact, 4=advanced, -1 to -4=Nocase $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.google.co.uk/",0,0) $oSearchBox = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "lst-ib") $oSearchBox.innertext = "AutoIT" $oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE,"f") _IEFormSubmit($oForm) WinSetState("Google","",@SW_SHOW)  
      It dosen't work
      The last line does make the window visible but it is an empty greyed out box that disappears as soon as I click on it.
      I have a sort of workaround that hides the browser window as soon as I have created it which works fine:
      $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.google.co.uk/") WinSetState("Google","",@SW_HIDE) . . . WinSetState("Google","",@SW_SHOW) But this looks a bit pants as the newly created window flashes on then off of the screen.
      Am I using the wrong method to make the browser window visible?
      Thanks

      Hello,
      I need to pull data from company intranet website. I created a script that I can give a list of project numbers and it will open up the the related webpage for each project, save the html comments for that project, then move on to the next. 
      However my problem comes in that each time I open up a project it locks it for other users, and if you just exit the page it keeps it locked, you have to actually press the "close" button on the page. So I'm not sure how to deal with this as I end up just locking every project in my name when I run my program as I don't understand the nature of how the website is built. I don't understand how to close with just using my automation code without manually having to press the stupid button. 
      My Function:
      Func Getscript($ProjectAddress) ;getting the page source code and storing it into text file for easy reading it $file = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\source.txt", 10) $IE = _IECreate($ProjectAddress & ".html", 0, 0) $source = _IEDocReadHTML($IE) FileWrite($file, $source) $target_source = _StringBetween($source, "<BODY>", "</BODY>") ; only take content between the specified tags _IEQuit($IE) FileClose($file) return $target_source[0] EndFunc ;==>Getscript  
      Source Code I got from website that I think is relevant:
      function closeForm(){ if(topButtonEnabled("closeButton")){ parent.mainFrame.closeForm(); } } <button id="closeButton" class="saveCloseButton" style="LEFT: 77px;" onclick=closeForm()>&nbsp;Close&nbsp;</button>  
      Any Ideas of how to tell website to either activate the closeform function or just give it the command to close?
       
      Thanks
