All the best,
I´m trying to use the command "WD_LoadWait" because I want to pause the script until the web page fully loads in Firefox but I don´t know how to use it.
Here´s the full help
; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _WD_LoadWait ; Description ...: Wait for a browser page load to complete before returning ; Syntax ........: _WD_LoadWait($sSession[, $iDelay = 0[, $iTimeout = -1[, $sElement = '']]]) ; Parameters ....: $sSession - Session ID from _WDCreateSession ; $iDelay - [optional] Milliseconds to wait before checking status ; $iTimeout - [optional] Period of time to wait before exiting function ; $sElement - [optional] Element ID to confirm DOM invalidation ; Return values .: Success - 1 ; Failure - 0 and sets the @error flag to non-zero ; Author ........: Dan Pollak ; Modified ......: ; Remarks .......: ; Related .......: ; Link ..........: ; Example .......: No ; =============================================================================================================================== Func _WD_LoadWait($sSession, $iDelay = Default, $iTimeout = Default, $sElement = Default) Local Const $sFuncName = "_WD_LoadWait" Local $iErr, $sResponse, $oJSON, $sReadyState If $iDelay = Default Then $iDelay = 0 If $iTimeout = Default Then $iTimeout = $_WD_DefaultTimeout If $sElement = Default Then $sElement = "" If $iDelay Then Sleep($iDelay) Local $hLoadWaitTimer = TimerInit() While True If $sElement <> '' Then _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $sElement, 'name') If $_WD_HTTPRESULT = $HTTP_STATUS_NOT_FOUND Then $sElement = '' Else $sResponse = _WD_ExecuteScript($sSession, 'return document.readyState', '') $iErr = @error If $iErr Then ExitLoop EndIf $oJSON = Json_Decode($sResponse) $sReadyState = Json_Get($oJSON, "[value]") If $sReadyState = 'complete' Then ExitLoop EndIf If (TimerDiff($hLoadWaitTimer) > $iTimeout) Then $iErr = $_WD_ERROR_Timeout ExitLoop EndIf Sleep(100) WEnd If $iErr Then Return SetError(__WD_Error($sFuncName, $iErr, ""), 0, 0) EndIf Return SetError($_WD_ERROR_Success, 0, 1) EndFunc
Any sugestions or examples?
Internet Explorer is nearly dead, newer versions of Firefox can't any longer be automated using Stilgar's FF UDF.
Hence more and more users (including me) need to look at automating Webbrowsers using WebDriver.
That's why I have started to create a tutorial in the wiki.
It should describe all necessary steps from intallation to usage.
I'm still collecting ideas for the tutorial - that's where you come into play.
What do you expect to see in such a tutorial?
Which browsers should be covered (Firefox, Chrome and Edge are settled)? Any questions for the FAQ? Which (high level) coding examples do you expect (like "How to attach to a running browser instance") ... Like to see your comments
Add "Tools" section and add ChroPath plugin. Done. FAQ: "How to attach to a running browser instance". Done. Explain the difference between iuiautomation, iaccessible, autoit, webdriver. Done. The AutoIt FAQ 40 has been extended. Detailed description of each function. Done Example for "how to deal with downloading". Use function _WD_DownloadFile. Example for "how to deal with popups (alerts, print or save dialog). Use function_WD_AlertRespond to respond to a user prompt. Example for "how to deal with multiple tabs". Use functions _WD_NewTab (create a new tab), _WD_Window (close or switch to a tab) and _WD_Attach (attach to existing tab).
In this UDF there are only a few functions (or better if called wrappers), but I hope to add more as I go and, even better, to receive suggestions and advice on new features and techniques to improve and expand it.
I hope you can have fun with the Browser Control
