How to get reference to PDF object embeded in IE

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I was allways wondering How to get reference to AcrobatReader  object and after all to the PDF file embeded in IE.

Today I was here:

http://www.vitoplantamura.com/index.aspx?page=axvncviewer

 

there is such a interesting html:

<html>
<body>

<script language="JavaScript">

function rsChange ()
{
    var ax = document.all.TestObj;
    if ( ax.readyState == 4 )
    {
        if ( ax.IsInitialized == false )
        {
            window.setTimeout( "rsChange();", 100 );
        }
        else
        {
            ax.Server = "192.168.1.3";
            ax.Connect ();
        }
    }
}

</script>

<OBJECT language='javascript' ID='TestObj' CLASSID='CLSID:36D64AE5-6626-4DDE-A958-2FF1D46D4424' WIDTH='640px' HEIGHT='480px' onreadystatechange='rsChange();'></OBJECT>

<br><br><br>

Don't forget to do a "REGSVR32 UltraVncAx.dll", before viewing this page.<br>
The timer trick in the rsChange() function is required to get the windowful ActiveX initialized properly, before letting the ActiveX create the VNC client child window.

</body>
</html>

 

When I analyze this then I start to wonder about this line:

 var ax = document.all.TestObj;

 

EDIT: above fraction was only an introduction, describing where it came my question.

 

And now then the question arise :

How I can use document.all to get the refrence to specified AxObject in this Case I mean to AcrobatReader opened in IE ?

EDIT: of course I mean a case when I have opened document in IE.

      Hi!
      Does anyone have any idea why Test() returns 0, while Test2() returns 1?
      #include <IE.au3> MsgBox(0, "", Test() & " " & Test2()) Func Test() Local $oHTML = ObjCreate("HTMLFILE") $oHTML.body.innerHTML = FileRead("Test.html") Return IsObj($oHTML.getElementsByClassName("example")) EndFunc Func Test2() Local $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1) Return IsObj($oIE.document.getElementsByClassName("example")) EndFunc Sample Test.html I open in IE before testing:
      <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <p class="example"></p> <div class="example"></div> </body> </html> I'm receiving html text in a response to http request, I need to parse it fast and easy, getElementsByClassName would have been ideal. I'm using 3.3.12.0 version.

      Hi,
      I'm new to AutoIt but it looks great.
      I want to get the text from Internet Explorer when hovering the mouse over an image, the statusbargettext function appears to be the way to go.
      When running via a hotkey I return a blank, but the msgbox works. Do you know what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks

      Hi guys
      Looking to automate...I have PDF files...Need to convert them all to 2 pages each but more specifically, retain only the first and last.
      Searched a lot and hitting the wall....Any ideas? Just directions would do...
      Not sure how to "print to file" and I believe |ShellExecuteWait($sFilePath, " /h /p", "", "print", @SW_HIDE)| doesn't give options of what pages...
