I have a problem trying to use _IEAttach to recover control after a Windows Explorer reset (e.g. on Windows 7), since all the
InternetExplorer.Application objects appear to be destroyed by this event. An example of this is when a PC has some kind of fault causing a pop-up error message "Windows Explorer has stopped working". I can simulate this event by using Windows Task Manager to end the Explorer.exe process then to file, new task (run...) Explorer.exe
After this event, _IEAttach gives an @error of:
7 ($_IEStatus_NoMatch) - No Match
However, using WinList() followed by WinGetText() I can recover the URL for an IE session that has lost its
InternetExplorer.Application object which could be used to _IECreate a new session (the $iTryAttach fails) and WinKill() the original session but the result is a if a refresh had been done (any form entries are lost) . Unfortunately form entries do not appear as text or hidden text to Windows so I'm looking for the best way to read the contents of an Internet Explorer screen (even if just text without structure).
When there is no InternetExplorer.Application object (because of some Windows fault) but still with an Internet Explorer session running, I tried to read its contents by a "Select All" & "Copy to Clipboard" but its form entries are blanked and combo boxes choices are all displayed with no way of finding out which ones were selected.
Local $ClipBoardSave = _ClipBoard_GetData() ;not ClipGet() which is text only ClipPut("") ;Clear User's Clipboard Local $sText = "" Local $hWnd = WinActivate("Window Title", "") If IsHWnd($hWnd) Then Local $bStatusCtrlSend = ControlSend("Window Title", "", "", "^a^c") If $bStatusCtrlSend Then Local $bStatusCtrlClick = ControlClick("Window Title", "", "") If $bStatusCtrlClick Then $sText = ClipGet() _ClipBoard_SetData($ClipBoardSave) ;not ClipPut($ClipBoardSave) which is text only
Is there a solution to this please?
Anyone have any idea how to close all open tabs except a specific one I manually open. Assuming I don't know what is open in all the tabs except just the one I want to keep open.
I didn't want to use sendkeys and I was trying to use the following code to list the title (or url) of the 3 open tabs and after I got that part working I would just close the other 2. This sample only displays the title of the first open tab
#include <IE.au3> Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800 $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com") __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) __IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param) Local $aIE $aIE = 0 Local $i = 1, $oIE While 1 $oIE = _IEAttach("", "instance", $i) If @error = $_IEStatus_NoMatch Then ExitLoop ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oIE, "title") & @CRLF) ReDim $aIE[$i + 1] $aIE[$i] = $oIE ;each item holds object $aIE = $i ;first item holds count $i += 1 WEnd MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE) ; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab
Thanks for any and all help
I'm trying to click on Java Dropbox using IE. However, I'm running into problems. There is a Dropbox "Please Select" with two options "Buy" and "Sell".
I'm able to click on a drop box (please see code below) but i'm unable to select "Buy" or "Sell"".
