Which browser to work with AutoIt

Recommended Posts

DoomSack

Hello Everyone ,
                           I am really confused right now about which browser to choose to work with AutoIt. I have been using IE but honestly, IE crashes more often and is not really as customized as any other browsers out there. So here are my questions.
1. which browser to choose ? (e.g: firefox, chrome, etc)

2.why?

That's it .

Would like to here everyone's detailed suggestions, so as to make a really good decision.

Thank you All.

What makes you sure that the same problem will not arise with FireFox or Chrome?

Good question, I don't know and that is why I am asking the question here before trying it for myself and wasting my time learning everything. Mostly, someone or the other might have worked with it and they can show their generosity by sharing their views, so that I can take a decision.

Thank you

I would first try to find the cause of the crash. "Running for 2 hours" sounds like you are running the script in a loop. There might be a memory leak causing the crash.
Which error message do you get when your script crashes?

Can you post your script so we might have a look at it?

Yes, I am running the script in a loop. Sorry I cant share the script. But, probably the cause is due to cache memory, i.e. what I think. the script includes constantly opening webpages, and the loop runs for almost 2k times and maybe the cache is the cause.

And I don't get any error message, the script just waits for the web page to load and exits. Meanwhile, internet explorer stops working and windows ask me to debug the IE or close IE.

Check the memory consumption while running. Maybe you need to release some ressources after each loop.

Why automate? Just start the Task-Manager and then your script and watch how memory consumption increases.

All browsers are fine. See ff.au3 chrome.au3 ie.au3

Generic iuiautomation in examples section can deal with safari to.

Check if you cannot use inetget functions.

No need to Fix your computer, just use Firefox.

Details: all others are simply a right royal pain in the arse to use ... especially IE.

Whenever I run my script I close the applications first run ccleaner and then run my script and I leave. I return back to my system after couple of hours. That is why I want a solution to this problem in a way that I don't have to do anything manually.

      Hello friends, I have a simple question, can I have a variable that is not reset, even if my program is closed?
      That is, I want to make a program that can only be opened once, have a variable $ ini = 0, when it is opened for the first and only time it becomes $ ini = 1, so that it can not use the program a second time, as if it was a test software.
      I do not want the variable to depend on a reading of an external file that is easily manipulated. Thank you.

      My program has to first search for names in Column D that do not match up with column C. I got that search to work using arrays. It was slow and I could not figure out how to delete them so I just manually put coded the names that do not belong. I found their cell location but I do not know how to store that location and delete it.
      This is what I have so far.
      Local $NameToDelete1[6]  = _Excel_RangeFind($OpenWorkbook, "Smith, Bill") _ArrayDisplay($NameToDelete1, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeFind Example 1", "", 0, "|", "Sheet|Name|Cell|Value|Formula|Comment") _Excel_RangeDelete($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $NameToDelete1[2], $xlShiftUp)  
      Please help, I wanted to have this program done yesterday but I did not see this problem until yesterday.

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work

      #include "..\Include\Array.au3" #include "..\Include\File.au3" #include "..\Include\AutoItConstants.au3" Local $aRetArray Local $sFilePath = "n.csv" _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, ",") ; _FileReadToArray($sFilePath, $aRetArray, $FRTA_COUNT, ",") _ArrayDisplay($aRetArray, "Original", Default, 8) The above code shows two versions of _FileReadToArray and both don't work as expected.
      The first one doesn't use the comma as a delimiter. (so I get a single column array)  I tried adding "Default" between $aRetArray and "," then it told me it had an incorrect number of parameters. 

      I looked again at the documentation:
       
      #include <File.au3> _FileReadToArray ( $sFilePath, ByRef $vReturn [, $iFlags = $FRTA_COUNT [, $sDelimiter = ""]] )
      And I with or without the flags params I should be getting a 2D array due to my file being a csv. 
      I then tried a regular flag, $FRTA_COUNT, and it tells me that I'm using a variable $FRTA_COUNT while it's not declared. Tried putting in 1 instead and it told me again, incorrect number of params.

      I need to perform a subtotal in excel and I would like to automate this process using Autoit if possible like always any and all help will be greatly appreciated. 
      I can not find a good example but the two from Microsoft. Here is one of the two from msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vba/excel-vba/articles/range-subtotal-method-excel
      I do not really understand how to translate this into AutoIt, but I gave it a try and here is what I have.
      $OpenRange      = "A1:E200" $xlSum          = -4157 $Added_Array[2] = [2, 3] $OpenRange.Subtotal("B1", $xlSum, $Added_Array, True, False, True) I just need to perform a subtotal on a range based on a header called department, and then perform a sum on the results.
