_INetGetSource coming back with strange characters

Recommended Posts

This function does not appear to be returning the correct characters for a site, but the code of the page of the site shows the right characters? Can someone show me how to correct this, or is this a bug in the function? Actually I corrected it in my code, but just replacing these characters, but should they even be part of the string?

Here is the two strange characters:
“
.â€.

 

#include <Inet.au3>
#include <String.au3>

$linc = "http://www.dictionary.com/browse/diablo?s=t"

$str = _INetGetSource($linc, 1)
; has this in it ;“devil.”.
$str = BinaryToString($str)
ConsoleWrite($str)
$str = _StringBetween($str, '<div class="def-set">', '</div>', 1)
MsgBox('', 'raw data', $str[0])

 


All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."

as you use Inetget with param $BString = True Delete line #7

 

Sorry that was trying both, the first time I had a 0 in there, as I tried both to remove the special characters that are appearing...

Given that the website explicitely declares that: "charset=utf-8", I'd use "$str = BinaryToString($str, $SB_UTF8)". But then the ConsoleWrite won't display everything as they are (MsgBox will).

Thanks, that did the trick.

Both works:

  • Inetget reading binary:
#include <Inet.au3>
#include <String.au3>

$linc = "http://www.dictionary.com/browse/diablo?s=t"

$str = _INetGetSource($linc, 0)
$str = BinaryToString($str, $SB_UTF8)
FileWrite('Test.txt',$str)
$str = _StringBetween($str, '<div class="def-set">', '</div>', 1)
MsgBox('', 'raw data', $str[0])
ShellExecute('test.txt')

The second one gets the same thing as I stated in the OP - the strange characters.

      Hello.
      I create a function that saves the log to an html file.
      File html are included picture (conversion to Base64)
      Everything works OK.
      But I do the actions:
      screenshot to the png file (smaller than bmp) per disk (  _ScreenCapture_Capture(@ScriptDir & "\screenshot.png")  ) convert image from disk to base64 I need help to optimize the script:
      - screenshot to memory (do not save to disk) - convert this object to png in memory - invoking the conversion of png image from memory to base64 The first step _ScreenCapture_Capture("") create handle to an HBITMAP in memory
      How to convert image in memory to png?
      How to use Func _ConvertToBase64
      I attach my code
      #include <ScreenCapture.au3> #include <Date.au3> Global $RaportFileName = @YEAR & "-" & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & "_" & @HOUR & "_" & @MIN & "_" & @SEC & ".html" $text = "This is first line text" & @CRLF &"and this is next line" _Raport($text, 1) FileWrite(@ScriptDir & "\" & $RaportFileName, "</pre></html>") ; #FUNCTION# ==================================================================================================================== ; Name ..........: _Raport ; Description ...: ; Syntax ........: _Raport($sText1[, $Screen = 0]) ; Parameters ....: $sText1 - a string value. ; $Screen - [optional] an unknown value.

      I need to find a way to get the HTML from a website that has HTTPS. This is what I have tried:
      - WinHttp (Only worked on HTTP NOT HTTPS)
      - InetGet and _INetGetSource Function (Not working for HTTPS)
      - IE.au3 (Does work but it's too slow for my needs)
      If anybody can point me on the right direction, I would really appreciate it.

      Hi,
      So, I am trying to automate and simplify the retrieval of data from our company website (made by an outside company). I've had experience with IE manipulation via autoIt however, this one is a bit tricky for me.
      I have a table that has 81 cells which are buttons. What im trying to get is the information in "data-content" tag. 
      <a id="bookedVehicleLinkButton" class="btn btn-sm btn-block btn-xsm btn-success" data-toggle="popover" data-placement="bottom" data-original-title="Trip Details" data-container="body" data-content="Plate No: UGQ-857<br />Model: TOYOTA GRANDIA GL" href="javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$ctl00$masterContentPlaceholder$reservationContentPlaceholder$bookingDataList$ctl00$vehicleDataList$ctl28$bookedVehicleLinkButton','')">IXARA (LITO SULIT)</a> Tried using the following:
      $oTagsCell = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "td") For $item in $oTagsCell $test = _IEPropertyGet($item, "innertext") ClipPut($test) Next $oTagsTable = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "table") For $item in $oTagsTable $test = _IEPropertyGet($item, "innertext") ClipPut($test) Next $oTagsLink = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "a") For $item in $oTagsLink $test = _IEPropertyGet($item, "innertext") ClipPut($test) Next I don't receive any errors from my aforementioned attempts however no luck in getting those "data-contents". Attached is a screenshot, I do the looking of elements in chrome but the codes are for IE. And if you might ask, the cells (or buttons) have the same ID.
       
      Thank you guys for any inputs.

      Hi,
      At work we have some proprietary website, users have to login to.
      I have "made" an autoit executable to start IE, go the website, login, so the user do not have input their credentials every time.
      By NDA I am not allowed disclosed the URL of the website nor the login credentials
      So I made a fake website and an autoitscript to illustrate my question.
      #include <ie.au3> $oIE = _IECreate ("about:blank", 0, 1, 1, 1) $HWND = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd") WinActivate ($HWND,"") WinSetState($HWND, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) _IENavigate ($oIE, "http://demo.rkilinc.nl",1) The above start my demo website. The actual website has some links in the footer that I do not want most people click on.
      I contacted the developers of the website and they are thinking of making an option to configure what links to show in the footer, but they said it's not a high priority for them.
       
      I discovered, that by click F12 and deleting the <footer> element the footer is delete from the live page view (until the page is reloaded off course)
      I want to automate the removal of the footer, without using things like send().
      I tried getting the footer with _IEGetObjById and deleting it with _IEAction, but that didn't work.
      Does any one has an idea how I could delete the footer directly from view with an autoit script?
      TIA, Jem.

      Hay guys
      Just had an idea and wanted to know where to start. I want to download a screenshot of a website automatically into a .png .jpg ect format so I can then set it as my desktop background.
      This might be for for news: When the latest news is added to a website a screenshot of that website is saved and added to my desktop background.
      I have tried using website that already do the screenshot but you have to open the website and click the button for it to generate one and thus InetGet does not help.
      Any Ideas?
