How to get reference to PDF object embeded in IE


Recommended Posts

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.

Today thanks to @Danyfirex help, and thanks to this topic, I was able to make better AcrobatReader Viewer.

Quick example:

As I remember old version of FoxIt reader had exposed ActiveX interface, the current one needs commercial license, and maybe because of this fact I'm not able to get it works.
Current version of FoxIt Reader open PDF as default in windows, but in my script still AcrobatReader is used... interesting.

I've tested in a machine without foxit or acrobat and it does not show the PDF file. It show as a download progress file and then request to open with a default pdf viewer in my case SumatraPDF. Of course it will not work because there is not any object registered/associated to .pdf like acrobat and foxit do.

 

Saludos

It would be interesting to try it on a machine without Foxit or Acrobat installed. I'll try to find time....

Please check:

with Foxit Reader.

I will wait for your's response in Acrobat Reader - ActiveX Viewer.

      I have a few questions:
      BACKGROUND
      I am using Oracle Application Testing Suite's OpenScript 13 (Eclipse IDE), Oracle Java 6, and AutoIt.
      My goal is to access a given Internet Explorer browser window (`$ieTitle`), send the keystroke of "shift-control-s" for "Save As" functionality to be invoked, so that I can download a (PDF) file to a given location ($fileName).
      The code within the script `DownloadPdfFile.au3` is
      $ieTitle = $CmdLine[1] $ieControl = "AVL_AVView31" $fileName = $CmdLine[2] ControlFocus($ieTitle, "", $ieControl) ControlSend($ieTitle, "", $ieControl, "+^s") ; Save as dialog $winTitle = "Save As" ; wait for Save As window WinWait($winTitle) ; activate Save As window If Not WinActive($winTitle) Then WinActivate($winTitle) ControlFocus($winTitle,"","Edit1") ControlSetText($winTitle,"","Edit1",$fileName) Sleep(2000) ControlClick($winTitle,"","Button3") Exit 0 So I compiled it with SciTE-Lite (32-bit Version 4.4.6 , creating `DownloadPdfFile.exe`, and so within my Java code, I have
      String command = autoItExePath + " " + scriptPath + " \"" + winTitle + "\" " + directoryPath.toFile().toString() + "\\Form9Report" + sdf_ddmmmyyyy.format(new Date()) + ".pdf"; try { Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(command); process.waitFor(); } catch (Exception e) { logger.error("Exception " + e.getMessage(), e); } The output would be like `C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe C:\...\AutoItScripts\DownloadPdfFile.au3 "https://****.com/****.exe?temp_id=**** - Internet Explorer" C:\...\Report05Apr2022.pdf"` which does run without the $cmdLine successfully. 
      When executed by Java, I see in the taskbar an icon, which I right-click has "[Check] Script Paused" and "Exit".
      Questions:
      (1) How do I unpause the script?
      (2) How do I avoid having the script paused?
      Any help is appreciated.

      Hi all,
      I've been using the following code for many years for the sole purpose of tracking my app usage via Google Analytics:
      ;GOOGLE ANALYTICS $AppStatsName = @ScriptName $GA = _IECreate("https://mywebserver/apps/stats/" & $AppStatsName & ".html", 0, 0, 0, 0) The app simply calls a blank .html page on my webserver which only contains the GA tracking code.
      The $iVisible parameter is set to "0" in my case, which means the IE browser is invisible to the user.
      I noticed in Windows 11, the URL is called in the Edge browser and is not invisible.
      So, I wonder if anyone out there has any suggestions on calling a URL invisibly on any operating system?
      Thanks!
