Download a variable link

Hi everyone, 

Following this page:

http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e5450-laptop.html

I have to download the BIOS for the E5440 model. As I don't know in which order Dell will place the description and the link to download the file (also because the 5440 can be put in first) I'd like to make  the following piece of code to search only first the link that deals with the E5440:

(The only thing I'm sure is that the string E5440 will be either in the first or the second position and I need to download the corresponding link)

Local $sRead = InetRead('http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e5450-laptop.html', 1)
ConsoleWrite(BinaryToString($sRead) & @CRLF)
Local $aData = _StringBetween(BinaryToString($sRead), 'Type: BIOS', 'Category:')

TrayTip("", "Downloading latest BIOS Version, please wait...", 10, 3)

Local $aLinks = _StringBetween($aData[0], '<A HREF="/', '"><IMG')

For $i = 0 To UBound($aLinks) - 1
    $aLinks[$i] = 'http://downloads.dell.com/' & $aLinks[$i]
Next

Local $hDownload = InetGet($aLinks[0], @DesktopDir & "\BIOSE5450.exe", $INET_FORCERELOAD, $INET_DOWNLOADBACKGROUND)
 Do
        Sleep(250)
    Until InetGetInfo($hDownload, $INET_DOWNLOADCOMPLETE)
Local $iBytesSize = InetGetInfo($hDownload, $INET_DOWNLOADREAD)
    Local $iFileSize = Round(FileGetSize(@DesktopDir & "\BIOSE5450.exe") / 1048576)
InetClose($hDownload)


MsgBox(0, "",  "The latest E5450 BIOS (" & $iFileSize & " MB) have been downloaded")

I was thinking of an string search in the array but all my attempts failed for now.

Can someone could give me a hand over here.

Thanks to both of you for giving me help :)

But, there's is something I can't figure out, here's my current code:

I can't understand why the last one is not working as only the variable and what to find has changed... and of course, I double check that what I want to fond for the latest is present on the page. (when I inspect it or if I switch to the page source)

Could you, please help again? Thanks ;)

Hmm this looks like a great confusion between declaring an array, walking through an array [$i] and selecting the first element of an array [0]
Please try this one and guess what  :)

Edit
BTW be careful with the syntax, $a... is for arrays, $s... for strings, and $b... for booleans

#include <String.au3>
f_e5440Drivers()

Func f_e5440Drivers()

Local $sRead = InetRead('http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e5450-laptop.html', 1)
Local $aDataBIOS = _StringBetween(BinaryToString($sRead), 'Type: BIOS', 'Category: Communications')
Local $aDataGraphics = _StringBetween(BinaryToString($sRead), 'Category: Video', 'Type: Firmware')
Local $aDataNetwork = _StringBetween(BinaryToString($sRead), 'Category: Network', 'Type: Utility')


TrayTip("", "Downloading latest drivers, please wait...", 10, 3)

Local $aLinksBIOS = _StringBetween($aDataBIOS[0], '<TR><TD>', '</TD></TR>')
Local $aLinksGraphics = _StringBetween($aDataGraphics[0], '<TR><TD>', '</TD></TR>')
Local $aLinksNetwork = _StringBetween($aDataNetwork[0], '<TR><TD>', '</TD></TR>')

Local $slinksBIOS = ""
Local $sLinksGraphics = ""
Local $sLinksNetwork = ""


For $i = 0 To UBound($aLinksBIOS) - 1
;~     $aLinksBIOS[$i] = 'http://downloads.dell.com/' & $aLinksBIOS[$i]

    If StringInStr($aLinksBIOS[$i], "E5450") Then
        Local $a2LinksBIOS = _StringBetween($aLinksBIOS[$i], '<A HREF="/', '"><IMG')
        $sLinksBIOS = 'http://downloads.dell.com/' & $a2LinksBIOS[0]
        ConsoleWrite($sLinksBIOS & @LF)
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

For $i = 0 To UBound($aLinksGraphics) - 1
;~     $aLinksGraphics[$i] = 'http://downloads.dell.com/' & $aLinksGraphics[$i]
    If (StringInStr($aLinksGraphics[$i], "Intel HD, HD 4000/4200/4400/4600/5000/5100/5200/5300/5500 Graphics Driver") AND StringInStr($aLinksGraphics[$i], "Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 32-bit OS")) Then
    Local $a2LinksGraphics = _StringBetween($aLinksGraphics[$i], '<A HREF="/', '"><IMG')
        $sLinksGraphics = 'http://downloads.dell.com/' & $a2LinksGraphics[0]
    ConsoleWrite($sLinksGraphics & @LF)

    Local $a2LinksNetwork = _StringBetween($aLinksNetwork[$i], '<A HREF="/', '"><IMG')
        $sLinksNetwork = 'http://downloads.dell.com/' & $a2LinksNetwork[0]
        ConsoleWrite($sLinksNetwork & @LF)
    ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next
EndFunc

mikell, 

For my defense, and I don't know why, I never got used to that... Despite I read help file or so, I don't know, my mind seems to put that away... 

Anyway... Thanks for the tip, for sure this is now working as expected and I can finalize my work.

Regarding the syntax, I know a for arrays, b for booleans, etc... that was just for my not to get lost with all these arrays... :) 

But a good thing is that now, I understand them a bit better :)

Have a great day.

      Hello
      Can we pause and resume the download in the InetGet function?
      If is possible, what is the solution please?
      I used this code To manage the download

      #include <INet.au3> func _downloader($name, $linc, $filepath, $RTLF = false, $link = false) global $downloader = GUICreate("downloader", 400, 200, -1, -1, $WS_CLIPCHILDREn, $RTLF, $link) global $path = $filePath $labelTxt = GUICtrlCreateLabel("downloading " & $name, 50, 10, 200, 20) global $labelTxt0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("downloaded size 0 MB " & "OF 0 MB", 50, 60, 300, 20) global $Progress = "" global $sText = ""     For $i = 1 To Random(5, 20, 1) ; Return an integer between 5 and 20 to determine the length of the string.         $sText &= Chr(Random(65, 122, 1)) ; Return an integer between 65 and 122 which represent the ASCII characters between a (lower-case) to Z (upper-case). next global $labelTxt2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("0%", 50, 80, 50, 20) _GUICtrlEdit_SetReadOnly(-1, true) GUIStartGroup("") global $beep = GUICtrlCreateCheckBox("use the progress beep notification", 150, 120, 200, 20) GUIStartGroup("") $button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Cancel', 130, 150, 180, 25, 0x01) $iIndex = 0 global $Target global $url GUIStartGroup("") global $Progress = GUICtrlCreateProgress(50, 90, 150, 20) global $Target = $filepath global $url = $linc global $path = $filepath global $hDownloadNo = _RSMWare_GetData($url, $Target) global $status = false AdlibRegister("SetProgress") global $onprogress = false, $curent = false GUISetState(@sw_Show) While 1 Switch GUIGetMsg() Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, $button $asc = MsgBox(4132,"exit download?","if you click yes the downloading will be cancel, do you want to cancel it ?") if $asc = 6 then AdlibUnRegister("SetProgress") GUIDelete() If $hDownloadNo <> 0 Then InetClose($hDownloadNo) exitLoop endIf EndSwitch if $status = -1 then $status = 0 $hDownloadNo = _RSMWare_GetData($url, $Target) $onprogress = false $curent = false elseIf $Status = 1 then $status = $path GUIDelete() AdlibUnRegister("SetProgress") exitLoop endIf WEnd return $status endFunc Func _RSMWare_GetData($url, $Target) Local $hDownload = InetGet($url, $Target, 1, 1) Return $hDownload EndFunc ;==>_RSMWare_GetData Func SetProgress() Local $state If $hDownloadNo <> 0 Then $state = InetGetInfo($hDownloadNo) If @error = 0 Then $infor = "downloaded size " & Round(Execute(InetGetInfo($hDownloadNo, $INET_DOWNLOADREAD) / 1048576), 2) & " MB of " & Round(Execute(InetGetInfo($hDownloadNo, $INET_DOWNLOADSIZE) / 1048576), 2) & " MB " $onprogress = Round(Ceiling(($state[0] / $state[1]) * 100)) if not (InetGetInfo($hDownloadNo, $INET_DOWNLOADSIZE) = 0) then if $onProgress <= 0 then $onProgress = 0 GUICtrlSetData($Progress, $onProgress) GUICtrlSetData($labelTxt0, $infor) GUICtrlSetData($labelTxt2, $onProgress & "%") if _isChecked($beep) then if $onprogress > $curent then beep((100 + $onprogress * 20), 100) $curent = $onprogress endIf endIf endIf If $state[2] Then If $state[3] Then InetClose($hDownloadNo) $status = 1 else InetClose($hDownloadNo) $status = -1 endIf endIf EndIf endIf EndFunc ;==>SetProgress

      Hi,
      I'm looking for a way to take a number value from a Row2 of a 2D array and according to this check if files that appear in rows 3-11 in the array exists.
      For example, if the number in Row2 is 5 I need to check for the files in Row 3-6 only, if it is 6 than rows 3-7 and so on.
      I thought on using a FOR loop but I have very little experience with those.
      Can you suggest the best way to do what I need?
      BTW, the files in Rows 3-11 will usually have blank value for any row above the number in Row2 (e.g. Row2 = 5 so Rows3-6 will have values but 8-11 be empty), The values I need are in Column 1 of the array, the name of the key from the INI file that the array was created from is in Column 0.
      Full Example:
      Row2 of Array:
      Col0 = Games# - Col1 = 5
      Rows3-6
      Col0 = Exe2 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe3 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe4 - Col1 = Path To File
      Col0 = Exe5 - Col1 = Path To File
      I need that if Row2 is 5 to check these above for rows if the file exists, if it was 6 then the next row as well and so on up until number 10 in Row2 as it can't go above 10.
      So basically for whatever number in Row2 from 2-10 need to check 1-9 rows from 3-11 to see if the files in Col1 exists and if any of them don't exist it should call a function that shows an error message.
      I'm pretty sure I have the first line of the for look correct:
      For $i = 1 To $aAIO[2][1] Just not sure how to continue from there, also not sure if $i should be equal 1 or 2.
      Help will be appreciated.

      Hi everyone, 
      I'm currently writing a script that allow me to list all currently installed software on a computer but some of the are listed in the HKLM64 hive of the registry whereas 95% of all others are in the HKLM "normal" one.
      Thing is, I'd like to combine these two reg key into one single ListView item.
      Here's my code so far, knowing that it's working on both cases (changing to HKLM64 or HKLM short)
      Thanks in advance for the help
