Create a browser window and maximize it

5 posts in this topic

#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" )

      Good morning
      I would like to know if I can use the Excel UDF to manipulating a .csv file without having Office installed on the PC I'm going to work...
      I read somewhere that it could be done, but I'm here to ask and be sure of what I remember... 
      I'd like to post another question...
      How can I retrieve the handle of a windows from a PID of an .exe?
      I have my script that does a ShellExecute ( which returns the PID of the .exe ), and then, switching a parameter read from a .ini file, adapt the Window on the screen ( Maximize, Minimize, On Top )...
      I tried, but without having success with this:
       
      #Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #AutoIt3Wrapper_Outfile_x64=prova.exe #EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI **** #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIEx.au3> #include <Array.au3> Local $sFileConfigurazione = @ScriptDir & "\configurazione_exe.ini" If(FileExists($sFileConfigurazione)) Then Local $aSezioniIni = IniReadSection($sFileConfigurazione, "CONFIGURAZIONE_EXE") If @error Then MsgBox($MB_ICONERROR, "Errore!", "Errore durante l'apertura del file: " & @CRLF & $sFileConfigurazione & @CRLF & "Errore: " & @error) Else ; Lancio dell'applicativo indicato nel file di configurazione Local $iPID = ShellExecute($aSezioniIni[1][1]) Local $hWnd If($iPID <> 0) Then Local $aWinList = WinList() For $i = 1 To $aWinList[0][0] If(WinGetProcess($aWinList[$i][1] = $iPID)) Then $hWnd = $aWinList[$i][1] EndIf Next Switch($aSezioniIni[2][1]) Case $aSezioniIni[2][1] = "MIN" WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MINIMIZE) Case $aSezioniIni[2][1] = "MAX" WinSetState($hWnd, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) Case $aSezioniIni[2][1] = "TOP" WinSetOnTop($hWnd, "", $WINDOWS_ONTOP) EndSwitch EndIf EndIf EndIf It just set on top the .exe I'm launching...
      Thanks

      Hello,
      Let's take a simple example to illustrate my case.
      I open a webpage with the command _IECreate and I parse all its elements :
      #include <IE.au3> $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.york.ac.uk/teaching/cws/wws/webpage1.html") $oElements = _IETagNameAllGetCollection($oIE) For $oElement In $oElements ConsoleWrite("Tagname: " & $oElement.tagname & @CRLF & "Id: " & $oElement.id & @CRLF & "InnerText: " & $oElement.innerText & @CRLF & "--------------------------------" & @CRLF) Next Now let's imagine I simulate a click with MouseClick to the link "lesson two" at the bottom of this webpage. A new webpage will open :
      http://www.york.ac.uk/teaching/cws/wws/webpage2.html
      I'd like to get the elements (tagname, id, innertext) of this new webpage, just like I got them for the first webpage. But for this, I presume I would have to get a new $oIE2 Object variable of an InternetExplorer.Application, in order to be able to use the _IETagNameAllGetCollection once again.
      How am I supposed to do this ?
      Thank you !

      Hi,
      I'm using the IE.au3 library to parse elements in a webpage and get their (x,y) coordinates.
      Main commands I'm using are :         
      $oIE = _IECreate($myWebPage) $oElements = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "label") $windowleft = $oIE.document.parentwindow.screenLeft $windowtop = $oIE.document.parentwindow.screenTop $oElementPosX = $windowleft + _IEfindPosX($oElement) $oElementPosY = $windowtop + _IEfindPosY($oElement) Now things become a bit tricky when i simulate a scroll in my webpage :
      $oIE.document.parentwindow.scroll(0, $myScrollY) Because once this is done, the coordinates of the elements are still what they were before the scroll.
      I can manage this problem by keeping track of the number of pixels I have scrolled, and compute the new "real" ($oElementPosX, $oElementPosY).
      But I'm pretty sure there's a more efficient / more elegant way to do it.
      What's more in some situations, when I click some controls in the webpage, the webpage adds new elements and shifts the controls below by a random number of pixel, so my workaround can't be used...
      So here's my question : Is there a way to "refresh" the calculation of label coordinates ($oElementPosX, $oElementPosY) after a scroll ?
      Thank you !
      EDIT : I forgot to post the _IEfindPosX and _IEfindPosY functions (found somewhere on this forum) :
      Func _IEfindPosX($o_object) Local $curleft = 0 Local $parent = $o_object If IsObj($parent) Then While IsObj($parent) $curleft += $parent.offsetLeft $parent = $parent.offsetParent WEnd Else Local $objx = $o_object.x If IsObj($objx) Then $curleft += $objx EndIf Return $curleft EndFunc Func _IEfindPosY($o_object) Local $curtop = 0 Local $parent = $o_object If IsObj($parent) Then While IsObj($parent) $curtop += $parent.offsetTop $parent = $parent.offsetParent WEnd Else Local $objy = $o_object.y If IsObj($objy) Then $curtop += $objy EndIf Return $curtop EndFunc

      Hello,
      I'm trying to save source of a particular webpage using its URL. When i tried to save source code using following command it works fine
      $IE = _IECreate( 'www.example.com', 0, 0 )
      But my problem is different I've saved different URL in my excel sheet, that's why, I tried to use "$IE" command in this way;
      $URL = _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook1.Activesheet, "C1")
      $IE = _IECreate($URL, 0, 0 )
      But It's unable to fetch source codes using URL placed in excel sheet 1 at cell No. "C1".
      Please guide me what's wrong with my codes and how can I make it possible to use URL placed in excel sheet instead of copying URL every time in "_IECreate" command.
      Thanks
