Create a browser window and maximize it

Recommended Posts

#include <IE.au3>

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")

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

Get Scite to add a popup when you use a 3rd party UDF -> http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/scite/docs/SciTE4AutoIt3/user-calltip-manager.html

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)
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" )
