Weird error

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I always get error when I end this process "iexplore.exe" and the ' if ' statement won't work, It will always do whats inside the statement when I end the process...

Errors:

--> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IEPropertyGet, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType
--> IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IEQuit, $_IESTATUS_InvalidObjectType

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("www.google.com", 0, 1, 0, 1)

While ProcessExists("iexplore.exe") = True

        Sleep(50)

        If _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "locationurl") = "https://www.youtube.com/" Then
            MsgBox(0,"","you on youtube?")
            _IEQuit($oIE)
            ExitLoop
        EndIf

WEnd

Bad English...

Where is the value of the $oIE variable set in your script? Post a runnable script and you'll get better help.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I just ran your script and didn't get any error messages, and when I went to youtube I got the message box. So, it's working here for me on Win 10.

Try closing IE when it finish loading, without going to youtube and you will still get the msg...

You get that error message because the Object you created in the _IECreate line no longer exists, you closed the window, and therefor the variable $oIE now has an object reference that doesn't exist any longer. That's how it's supposed to work.

And to be clear, now that _IEPropertyGet errors, the return value from it is now 0, and a string, when compared to a number, is converted to a number itself, and a string is equal to zero as a number.
