6 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I’m new to the community and am in need for some help scripting an automation to open a url then right click on that page, click on save picture as (or keyboard stroke down 7 times I guess). The problem im getting is that with the following script im able to  open the url but the mouse clicks occur in the autoit editor and not in the browser. 

 

$url1 = "blah blah blah"  

ShellExecute("iexplore", $url1)

MouseClick("left", 100, 100, 1, 5)

MouseClick("right", 100, 100, 1, 5)

 

I hope you can help J

 

Kind Regards,

M Singh

for automating a website it's better to use the functions of IE.au3, for example:

_IECreate;or
_IEAttach

Hi, thank you for your response, I will change the script to use _IECreate, im unable to do this while at work but will try this tonight. Do you think this will help with the right click currently not being in the browser?

The IE.au3 has more than this 2 funcs. Have a look in the help and test the func's and the examples. Best starting is:

; Open a browser with the basic IE.au3 introductory text displayed

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IE_Introduction("basic")

and read the Introduction.

 

edit:

$sUrl='https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/180835-how-to-open-url-and-mouseclick-in-browser/'  ;to be canged
ShellExecute($sUrl)
$hwnd=WinActivate("bla-bla-Windowtitle")
WinWaitActive($hwnd,'','')
MouseClick()    ;to be canged
MouseClick()    ;to be canged

should do the job.

pid changed to hwnd

Hi, i ran the same code with the click references but it only opens the url and doesnt do the mouseclick. I'll explain what im exactly trying to do, i want to open the url, right click, save image as, save to a folder on my c://

I need to automate this as i need to do this for over 400 images, each on seperate urls. I hope you can help.
