InetGet correct way of checking error during downloading a file

4 posts in this topic

I am using this code to Download a file 
I don't know correct way of checking error during downloading

Global $DownloadStatus = InetGet($url, $fileName, Default, $INET_DOWNLOADBACKGROUND)

While 1
    $ArrayOFDownloadStatuts = InetGetInfo($DownloadStatus)
    If Not $ArrayOFDownloadStatuts[4] = 0 Then
            MsgBox(0,"Error","Error During Downloading")
    If $ArrayOFDownloadStatuts[2] Then

I am using that code but don't know why it gives error during downloading the file 

is it wrong way of checking error or is there network error on my pc ? :P 
thank you :D

From help file:   fifth element (at index 4) - The error value for the download. The value itself is arbitrary. Testing that the value is non-zero is sufficient for determining if an error occurred - so I assume that if that element has value of zero than there is no error. You could also do something like this:

$ArrayOFDownloadStatuts = InetGetInfo($DownloadStatus)
If @error Then
;do something

      I'm trying to use InetGet function to download multiple images from a website, some pages having three images, some pages having 4 images some of them having more...

      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

      Hi everyone,
      My script uses IE11 on Win7 to log in to a site and enters data into a couple of forms. Upon clicking a link this data is used by the site to generate a PDF report.
      With my current set-up if I do this manually the PDF opens in a new IE tab and I can download or print it. If I right-click the link that creates the PDF and choose Save Target As the PDF is generated and the Open/Save As dialogue at the bottom of the screen opens. All good.
      However I would like the script to automatically download the PDF and close IE and then exit. Closing IE (_IEQuit) and exiting the script are easy enough, but I'm struggling getting the script to download the PDF.
      The link to generate the PDF contains a unique number each time the page with the link is reached, so it's not static. The link position however, using _IELinkGetCollection I can tell the link to generate the PDF is always the 10th one from the end of the page, so using $iNumLinks - 10 I am able to click the link.
      What I believe I need to use is InetGet however the problem I've been facing is that the link isn't static and I haven't worked out a way to access the link by index - is this possible?
      Here is the website HTML for the section containing the link although I don't think it's of much use but it at least shows the format of the link (I can't post a link as it's a password protected area)...
      <div class="rmButton right"><a title="Generates a PDF version of the market report in a new window." href="/rmplus/generatePdf?mr_id=60991" target="_blank">print/save as pdf</a></div> The full link just for completeness - visiting it will give a HTTP 500 unless logged in.
      And here is the code that clicks this link opening the generated PDF in a new tab...
      $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE) $iNumLinks = @extended $PrintPDF = _IELinkClickByIndex($oIE, ($iNumLinks - 10)) So, how to use InetGet to visit that link? Or is there a way to Save As the newly opened tab? I've tried _IEAction($oIE, "saveas") but it seems not to work in a tab containing only a PDF.

      What does it mean, when InetGET() returns @Error=13?
      This script worked exactly once to download a single JPG image file from a WebCam, GANZ, Model "ZN-MD221M". Any later tries failed
      The URL (see script below) doesn't work in FF, IE, Chrome either. In FF it's trying to download the image for maybe 5 Minutes, then FF is giving up, displaying this message:
      Die Grafik "http://ADMIN:1234@" kann nicht angezeigt werden, weil sie Fehler enthält. In English about this: The Image <url> can't be displayed, as it contains errors.  
      Wireshark traces shows simply no "answer" to the "GET" for the image file. This is my script:

      ; GANZ Cam im Bunker #include <inet.au3> HttpSetProxy(1) $URL="http://ADMIN:1234@" ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $URL = ' & $URL & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $file="C:\temp\bunker\bunker.jpg" FileDelete($file) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $File = ' & $File & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console $result=InetGet($URL,$File,1+2) ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $result = ' & $result & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console The console output is this one:
      >"C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\..\AutoIt3.exe" "C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\SciTE\AutoIt3Wrapper\AutoIt3Wrapper.au3" /run /prod /ErrorStdOut /in "H:\DATEN\PUBLIC\Bunker\Script\Mittags-ein-Schuss.au3" /UserParams +>17:18:39 Starting AutoIt3Wrapper v.15.920.938.0 SciTE v.

      so Inetget() returns "Size of download = 0 bytes", and @error=13, what does this error code mean?
