Download a variable link

10 posts in this topic

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.

Local $sRead = BinaryToString(InetRead('http://downloads.dell.com/published/pages/latitude-e5450-laptop.html', 1))
; a funny way
Msgbox(0,"link", StringRegExpReplace($sRead, '(?is).*?([^"]+E5450\w+\.exe).*', "http://downloads.dell.com$1"))

Thanks to both of you for giving me help :)

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

Func f_e5440Drivers()

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 $bLinksBIOS[$i] = _StringBetween($aLinksBIOS[0], '<A HREF="/', '"><IMG')
        $bLinksBIOS[$i] = 'http://downloads.dell.com/' & $bLinksBIOS[$i]
        ConsoleWrite($bLinksBIOS[$i] & @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 $bLinksGraphics[$i] = _StringBetween($aLinksGraphics[0], '<A HREF="/', '"><IMG')
        $bLinksGraphics[$i] = 'http://downloads.dell.com/' & $bLinksGraphics[$i]

EndFunc

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>

Local $slinksBIOS = ""

Local $sLinksNetwork = ""


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

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.

      So I have a loop that keeps reading data from an array and searching it for the same value. If the value is no there it does work then adds the value to the array to prevent it from doing the same work.
      If _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) = -1 Then Work.... _ArrayAdd($ID,$filearray[$i]) EndIf This is in a for loop hence $i
      So what is happening is the code works great for several hours. After a period of time _ArraySearch($ID,$filearray[$i]) will result in -1 even if $ID = $filearray. So it ready as if there is no data in the array. Anyone have this problem? 
       
      Also I am just running in using F5 not compiling it and running it if that makes a difference.

      I am reading a CSV file which is tab seperated as below.
      Local $aArray = FileReadToArray($file) And now, I am splitting this main array record wise so that Array contains internally another arrow to represent each row.
      For $i = 0 to (UBound($aArray) - 1) ;MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[$i]) $aArray[$i] = StringSplit(StringStripCR($aArray[$i]), Chr(9),2);Chr(9) for tab ;_ArrayDisplay($aArray[$i]) Next Afther that, _ArrayDIsplay is able to see the individual internal arrays.
      _ArrayDisplay($aArray[1]) But If I try to access the individual element of it as below.It is not showing any result.
      MsgBox(0,"",$aArray[1][1]) Any suggestion, below is the sample csv file.

      Need some help understanding why the ConsoleWrite works inside 2nd For loop but not out side. Between Audit Wiki, Help file , Forum searching (lots of code reading), and YouTube ( shout out to TutsTeach), I have not been able to find the reason why. 
      $sIniPath = "installLog.ini" ; - Get section name $iniSctionNames = IniReadSectionNames($sIniPath) ; - Get Keys and Vaules For $a = 1 to UBound($iniSctionNames) - 1 $keys = IniReadSection($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[$a]) For $b = 1 to UBound($keys) - 1 $oldSysInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[1], $keys[$b][0], "") $PntIPInfo = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[2], $keys[$b][0], "") $NewPCInfor = IniRead($sIniPath , $iniSctionNames[3], $keys[$b][0], "") ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ;ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo & @LF) Next ConsoleWrite($oldSysInfo) My intention is to use the variables later for Listboxes.
