_IEGetObjByID in a While

Recommended Posts


google can't help me, so i've created an account and hopefully some of u can help me with my code.


My code should overwatch a status div (well, it is a span, but with id) in IE, while it is changing during the game. It is working, but it'll go on error in a few rounds.

While 1

   $oIE = _IEAttach("Game")

   Local $oDiv = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "banner")
   Local $array = _StringExplode($oDiv.innertext, " ", 0)

   If($array[0] = "State 1") Then
      ToolTip("State 1")
   ElseIf($array[0] = "State 2") Then
      ToolTip("State 2")
   ElseIf($array[0] = "State 3") Then
      ToolTip("State 3")
   ElseIf($array[0] = "State 4") Then
      ToolTip("State 4")

So this is roughly the code, where my error will occur. After 1-5 Rounds it will get me to this:


"C:\..." (37) : ==> Variable must be of type "Object".:
Local $array = _StringExplode($oDiv.innertext, " ", 0)
Local $array = _StringExplode($oDiv^ ERROR


So it seems that _IEGetObjByID will sometimes get a false, so that _StringExplode cant explode the Object into the array.


Tried many things:

- Put the IEAttach over the While

- Tried to If IsObj on various positions in the code


but none of them will work for me. Only when i will put up the sleep-timer, the code will work longer, but i'll reach a timing, where some states wont be recognized.


Some Answers, before someone would ask:

- I Use Attach, because this Game has a complicated Login System over another platform, then will need me to type in a security code, so i want to start ie with the game, login and then hit "go"

- i need the game states to recognize, what i have to do in the next round

- yes i got the whole error handle thing imported, but that wont help out for now, i descriped the error


Hopefully u can suggest me a solution or maybe another method to do this. Cant go for PixelGetColor, because the state will only be signalized in text form in a span.


Thanks !
