Need help Website Navigating with HTTPRequests and WinHttp

Recommended Posts

CT83

(Sorry if this topic is in the wrong section, please suggest a better place if so.:))

Hi! a newbie here, since a few weeks i have got the basic hang of Pixelsearch, Controlclick, Imagesearch functions and now would like to proceed to Automating Internet navigation.

In this case i am trying to develop a Script which will keep a watch on amazon page and notify me when the price of a commodity drops. I can program the latter part but i still am in search of a better way to , navigate and basically watch webpages with out actually having them on the screen

Therefore, I need some guidance with HttpRequest, and Winhttp functions, can anyone please refer me to tutorials, links and example scripts for a complete noobbie? Some detailed Video Tutorials, and Guides would just be icing on the cake.:>

Sorry, if this sounds too naive. Hoping for positive replies^_^

Do you know what it returns?

No sir, I have no idea how to use these functions. And I am not familiar with them at all. I just need to know to use them, i mean the basics. I was hoping some one here could guide me, To get my basics of network programming right. I am extremely sorry if this is too intrusive, just a geek trying to learn. o:)

If you're trying to learn, then I suggest downloading AutoIt and SciTE and look at the help files and example scripts or look here for some tutorials.

      Hello
      Opertation Sys: Win7 x64
      Problem: Connecting to webs using TLS 1.1 +
      Description: WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1 using TLS 1.0 by default, i need higher version to connect into some webs.
      Dim $oHttp = ObjCreate("WinHTTP.WinHTTPRequest.5.1") $oHttp.open ("GET", "https://howsmyssl.com/a/check", False) $oHttp.Option(9) = 128 ; 128 - TLS 1.0, 512 - TLS 1.1, 2048 - TLS 1.2, 2056 - TLS 1.1 & TLS 1.2 $oHttp.Send ConsoleWrite($oHttp.responseText & @CRLF) ; at end of the respond you can check your TLS version. Mine is: {"tls_version":"TLS 1.0","rating":"Bad"} Error: $oHttp.Option works only with parameter 128 (TLS 1.0) other values make error {Bad parameter}
      Additional: I've done this tutorial about enabling TLS in registry: <link>
      Thanks for support.

      Hi All
      i am currently trying to add a function to my project that can send SMS, i have gone with Twilio for the sms service that use a REST API.
      I have never worked with an API before, and could use some help.
      I can get my function working with using cURL.exe and copy past command from the website with the following code. And thats great unfortunately i am have issue with character like æøå when sending a SMS appears like a box or ?. this does not happen if i do it from the website so it looks like a Unicode issue in curl.exe.
      I have done some searching on the forum and understand that i should be able to implement this curl command with the WinHTTP UDF from @trancexx so i don't need a third part exe and it might fix my charater issue.
      Unfortunately i really don't understand how i am to change curl commands to the WinHTTP and i was hoping some good maybe give me an example i could learn from.
      Thanks in advanced
      i have removed the AuthToken number from the script.
      _SendSMS("00000000","SomeOne","SMS body info") Func _SendSMS($SendTo,$SendFrom,$Msgtxt) $AccountSID = "ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc" $AuthToken = "Auth Token number" $Data = '"https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/'&$AccountSID&'/Messages.json"'& _ '-X POST \ --data-urlencode "To=+45'&$SendTo&'" \ --data-urlencode "From='&$SendFrom&'" \ --data-urlencode "Body='&$Msgtxt&'" \ -u '&$AccountSID&':'&$AuthToken&'' ShellExecute(@ScriptDir&"\curl.exe","-k "&$Data) ;~ curl 'https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc/Messages.json' -X POST \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'To=+4500000000' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'From=Reception' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'Body=Test Body' \ ;~ -u ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc:[AuthToken] EndFunc

      Hello friends, i have a working curl command that show informations about my account on binance.com, but_it dont work with autoit code without curl.exe.
      I want to do it without curl, because the whole process much Slower_ with StdoutRead (I want get the response in variable.)
      My Curl command in Autoit:
      This 2 are works, but_ i would like to do it without curl.exe
      $apikey="XYZ" sCommand = @ScriptDir & '\curl.exe -k -H "X-MBX-APIKEY: ' & $apikey & '" -X GET "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account?' & $request the same in .bat  file
      curl.exe -k -H "X-MBX-APIKEY: XYZ" -X GET "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account?timestamp=1514917812000&signature=85bdee77e53cd521e1d5229fbfb459d53799c42b3fa4596d73f1520fad5f965a" (I use curl with -k option which allows curl to make insecure connections, because there is problem with the sites certificate, (cURL error 60))
       
      I tried many variations, this is the latest... I cant get the same response.
      curl $error message (I changed ): {"code":-2015,"msg":"Invalid API-key, IP, or permissions for action."}
      autoit version $error message (Response code:400): Mandatory parameter 'timestamp' was not sent, was empty/null, or malformed.
       
      $request = $query & '&signature=' & $signature $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1") $oHTTP.Open("GET", "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account", False) $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("X-MBX-APIKEY", $apikey) $oHTTP.Send($request) $oReceived = $oHTTP.ResponseText $oStatusCode = $oHTTP.Status If $oStatusCode <> 200 then MsgBox(4096, "Response code", $oStatusCode) EndIf  
      thanks

      Hello,
      I have been struggling with this for nearly 20 hours, and I just cannot seem to figure out the formatting for the header request.
      To test this, you will need to use this api key I set up for your testing purposes. (note, I sent tracexx a direct message about this as I didn't realize I could limit API restrictions until just now, so I am now hoping on of you may have the answer on hand)
      I need to be able to GET balance and POST orders.
      Right now, I can't get past the 401/403 errors on my own.
      I believe the Content is formatted for JSON, but using the JSON format didn't work for me ( although that may be because I'm an idiot and formatted something wrong).
      I want to get:
      GET balance page POST delete order page Here is a temporary API key + Secret API key with only the "View Balance Page" and "Delete Order" functions enabled:
      Access-key: tq6GeUrEvfxyF-LG
      Secret Access-Key: cZlz75K1wb8-Ed67pRaXvUWTPW6RTH9q

      Here is the site's API guide (I followed this closely and doubt the error is there): https://coincheck.com/documents/exchange/api#libraries
       
      And here is running source code (needs those keys inputted) which will hash the above keys to the required HMAC SHA256:

      HttpHeaderWatcher v1.0.1.3
       

      Some time ago, some members asked how to see the Http Requests.
      There are quite a few external applications but not in AutoIt!
      HttpHeaderWatcher in association with WinPcap, very modestly solves this lack.
       
      Once done this http watcher, i asked me : why not Re-build a WinHttp Request in AutoIt from a selected Request in one Click ?
      So i have added a "Create au3" button who open the WinHttp Request of your choice in AutoIt format in SciTE Editor.
      Voila voila, hope it can help ! 
      Buttons were made online with chimply.com the easy and free buttons generator !
