help getting IEFrame url

3 posts in this topic

I can get the url of the main browser window with _IEGetProperty, but when I have AutoIt open up the popup,

I can't seem to get the url address. My script looks something like this:

$line = "javascript:popup_on('down_','4161','1','')"
$ago = _IENavigate($ObjIE, $line)
;  (The popup comes up here)
_IELoadWait($ObjIE)
$addy = _IEGetProperty($ObjIE, "locationurl")

So the value for $addy is always the main browser url and not the popup.

Is there anyway to get the popup url??

There is not enough of an exmple here for me to know for sure, but my quess is that when you perform the _IENavigate you are only executing a Javascript function that results in creating a NEW window -- the original window is still there and is still pointing to the same URL as before. If a new window is created, the only thing I know to offer right now is _IEAttach(), but it requires that you know something about the created window (like URL or Title etc.). Also, if the "popup" is the special "popup object" then it really has no URL and cannot be connected to with _IEAttach.

It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

The _IEAttach function works great, I never thought to do that! Thanks!
