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.

But, Thank you for your views on the topic, will keep in mind.

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.

      I have a script that just adds some keyboard shortcuts for things like displaying the current song and artist, moving the window to the side so it won't pop up in my way, and play/pause, next song, previous song (these are the only 3 to still work since they don't need the window handle.)
      In some update recently, Spotify's window class swapped from "[CLASS:SpotifyMainWindow]" to "[CLASS:Chrome_WidgetWin_0]". Using the new class in my controls doesn't seem to work, I've tried getting the window handle from the process handle (_GetHwndFromPID($PID)) but that seems to fail as well.
      Does anybody have some idea of a way I could get this script working again?
       
      edit: seems like discord has the same window class name, so could be some issue with this? Still not sure of a way to solve the issue though, I added a function to get the handle of the active window and can just use that now, but it was able to find it on its own before on spotify startup or script startup which would be preferred.
       
      Thanks!
