HTML Entities

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Today I was working on some Webservices UDF.
As a result I get this kind of data:



I was searching here:


But finally I made this:

#include <IE.au3>

Func _Example()
    Local $sHTML = _
    MsgBox(0, 'TEST', _HTML_DecodeEntities($sHTML))
EndFunc   ;==>_Example

Func _HTML_DecodeEntities(ByRef $sHTML)
    $sHTML = StringReplace($sHTML,'&#xD;','<hr>')
    Local $oIE = _IECreate("about:blank", 0, 0, 1, 0)
    _IEDocWriteHTML($oIE, $sHTML)
    Local $sResult = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)
    Return $sResult
EndFunc   ;==>_HTML_DecodeEntities

      Hi Guys, 
      Since I'm able to get a Dell equipment warranty status thanks to my API key, I'm using an UDF to extract data from an XML file and get the end date. > 
      Thing is, when using InetGet, the original file is in JSON format and the UDF is not working anymore, even if I download the file with the xml extension. Therefore, and when I manually download the page with Chrome, I have a proper XML file where the UDF is working fine.
      Here's my code:
      I even tried to convert the json to xml >
      I took a look here but I don't understand anything :/
      The XML read UDF is just perfect for my needs but I'm stuck here... 
      Thanks for any help you can provide

      Does anyone have any idea why Test() returns 0, while Test2() returns 1?
      #include <IE.au3> MsgBox(0, "", Test() & " " & Test2()) Func Test() Local $oHTML = ObjCreate("HTMLFILE") $oHTML.body.innerHTML = FileRead("Test.html") Return IsObj($oHTML.getElementsByClassName("example")) EndFunc Func Test2() Local $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", 1) Return IsObj($oIE.document.getElementsByClassName("example")) EndFunc Sample Test.html I open in IE before testing:
      <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <body> <p class="example"></p> <div class="example"></div> </body> </html> I'm receiving html text in a response to http request, I need to parse it fast and easy, getElementsByClassName would have been ideal. I'm using version.

      I'm trying to get the HTML code after executing javascript in IE. Here is my code.
      $url = "" $oIE = _IECreate($url) Sleep(3000) ;waiting for executing javascript. But useless. $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE, 0) $sCode &= _IEPropertyGet($oFrame, "innerhtml") & @CRLF Then, I get this error.
      "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3" (2308) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.: $oTemp = $oObject.document.body $oTemp = $oObject^ ERROR After executing javascript, when I view source in IE, there are HTML code like below.
      <html> <head> ... </head> <body> ... </body> </html> What should I do?

      I´m using AutoIt for a long time not only to automate applications but to develop complex stand-alone applications. I am particularly annoyed by the fact that the logic in AutoIt is difficult to separate from the presentation and the standard GUI elements are very inflexible. If you want to create something more sophisticated, you have to use GDI and write many lines for simple effects or animations.
      With these thoughts in mind, I looked around for alternatives and unfortunately found nothing that corresponded to my ideas. Therefore, I have thought of a different solution. I have created this framework in order to separate the logic from the presentation and to use HTML & CSS in my GUI to the full extent.
      Goals of the Framework
      MVC development with AutoIt HTML & CSS GUI in AutoIt Better and more modern package system(UDF) like npm CLI support like Laravel Artisan faster and more structured application development roma() is strongly inspired by Laravel PHP Framework so Laravel users will notice many similarities.
      Unfortunately, I do not have much time for the project at the moment. So I thought to myself, I share it and ask you for support.
      The framework primarily serves for the development of stand-alone applications.
      All necessary settings are preconfigured. You can start immediately with the logic or the view All settings are in one place The logic(controller) and the presentation are clearly separated from each other Development with MVC structure You can develop the GUI in realTimer without restarting AutoIt GUI can be developed in HTML & CSS Any graphic & video integration is possible (.png, .gif etc.). Also everything that is possible in HTML5 and CSS3 JavaScript & Frameworks are supported Debug logs are created including console output It is possible to work with multiple languages All UDFs are contained in the framework. Reloading is not necessary The AutoIt UDFs are also included in the Framework. This ensures that it workds correctly for different Versions of AutoIt The framework also provides functions that are necessary for communication between AutoIt and HTML. For example, evaluation of form data (GET & POST) (documentation for this and examples follow.) I also developed a template engine. (Similar to Laravel Blade) The template engine supports if statements (would like to have help to make loops possible). In the Future I will publish a complete documentation of the template engine and examples. Almost finished is a database package. This makes communication with databases an absolute child's play. So that was it for once. If something else occurs to me, I will update the list. Small Example
      url: http://localhost:8080/welcome ;application.au3 ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ ; Initial ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ #include 'vendor\initial.au3' func _roma_routes() ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ ; GET Request ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ $route_get('welcome', 'welcome') endfunc ;roma\controller\welcome.au3 ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ ; Welcome Controller ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ func controller_welcome() Local $name = 'Eduard', $lastname = 'Tschernjaew' ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ ; passed variable to view (Array are possible) ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ $toView('name', $name) $toView('lastname', $lastname) ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ ; Return a View ;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------/ return $VIEW('welcome') endfunc <html> <head> <title>roma() - Template Test</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hello {{ $name }} {{ $lastname }}</h1> </body> </html>  
      The framework is under the Open-Source license.
      git clone or download the ZIP. 
      [ ] Loop Funktion in Template.au3
      [ ] CLI module like Laravel Artisan
      [ ] Solution approaches, how the framework can be optimally compiled, so that in the compiled state all files are available.
      [ ] Framework Tests & Bugfixes
      roma() is still in development. Documentation and application examples will soon be available. I am looking forward to any Contributing.
      Thanks for Feedback and Contributing
