_IEPropertyGet($oIE,"busy")

I've had a problem trying to use _IEPropertyGet with BUSY...

We have a secure, internal website that opens in IE11. I can't share it.

I want to have an AUTOit exe running continuously to warn our staff in certain circumstances.
To do that, I want to look at the page and  if it meets my criteria, I want to insert some HTML.

I use  ControlGetHandle("[ACTIVE]", "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]") ;
to get the handle of the currently active instance of IE.
That works fine.

I then use __IEControlGetObjFromHWND($hControl_curr)
to get the object. 
But, I can't use _IEPropertyGet  on the object to determine if the window is busy.
After looking in IE.au3 I believe that the reason is that the object is an HTMLWindow2 
which doesn't work for  object.Busy.

I then tried to find the parent window object starting from using _IEPropertyGet (object,"hwnd")
but, that also fails.

I can't tell if the object is busy.
I can't find the "parent" window to see if it is busy.
Should I care if the window is busy before inserting the HTML?

Is there an easier way to safely insert HTML?

Try to use _IEAttach

correct

this example show you why:

#include <IE.au3>
Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.google.com")
Local $oWindow = $oIE.document.parentwindow
MsgBox(0, '', ObjName($oWindow))

Try to use this:

Local $oDocument = $oControl_curr.document
_IELoadWait($oDocument)

btw.

next time when you want to post ConsoleOutput try to post it as "Quote" or as "Code" but choose "Plain Text"

This will be more readeable.
