# Firefox with random window size

## Recommended Posts

hello  everyone,

I'm new with AutoIT and just looking for a way to open Firefox with random window size

i have tried too many different samples from the web, some how it works but i can't make it works with Firefox

MozRpel and ff.au3 installed

right now i can open Firefox with this code, but i still can't control the window of Firefox

; open firefox

#include <ff.au3>
_FFStart()

; open firefox with random size

Can you show us the code you tried that didn't work? Also, have you considered using WinMove to set the window's size once FF has loaded?

here some of the scripts i tired from the web

Example()

Func Example()

; Wait 10 seconds for the Notepad window to appear.
Local $hWnd = WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]", "", 10) ; Retrieve the position as well as the height and width of the Notepad window. We will use this when we have to move the window back to the original position. Local$aPos = WinGetPos($hWnd) ; Move the Notepad to the x, y position of 0, 0 and set the height and width at 200, 200. WinMove($hWnd, "", 0, 0, 200, 200)

; Wait for 2 seconds to display the new position of the Notepad window.
Sleep(2000)

; Move the Notepad window back to the original position by using the array returned by WinGetPos.
WinMove($hWnd, "",$aPos[0], $aPos[1],$aPos[2], $aPos[3]) ; Wait for 2 seconds to display the original position of the Notepad window. Sleep(2000) ; Close the Notepad window using the handle returned by WinWait. WinClose($hWnd)
EndFunc   ;==>Example
; open firefox

#include <ff.au3>
_FFStart()

WinMove(_FFStart(), "", 0, 0, 400, 400)
; For window size 1024 * 768
$customWidth = 1024$customY = 768

If $CmdLine[0] = 1 Then WinMove($CmdLine[1], "", 0, 0, $customWidth,$customY)
_Middle($CmdLine[1], "") EndIf Func _Middle($win, $txt)$size = WinGetClientSize($win,$txt)
Local $y = (@DesktopHeight / 2) - ($size[1] / 2)
Local $x = (@DesktopWidth / 2) - ($size[0] / 2)
Return WinMove($win,$txt, $x,$y)
EndFunc

and here i found some topics about resizing,

i'm not really good in coding the reason i still can't run it with firefox

thanks

You need to get the handle of the FF window. To do that, you can use _FFWindowGetHandle() --

#include <ff.au3>
_FFStart()

$ffhwnd = _FFWindowGetHandle() WinMove($ffhwnd, "", 0, 0, 400, 400)

Im curious about what you mean with random size, do you really mean random? as in: anything between 0 and total width, and 0 and total height?

This works for me, as i think you described it

$Proc = Run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe") _Random() Func _Random() WinWait('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]') Local$aPos = WinGetPos('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]')
Local $Handle = WinGetHandle('[CLASS:MozillaWindowClass]') Local$x = Random(0, @DesktopWidth)
Local $y = Random(0, @DesktopHeight) ConsoleWrite('$x - '& $x &'$y - '&$y&@CRLF) Sleep(3000) WinMove($Handle, '', $aPos[0],$aPos[1], $x,$y)
EndFunc

excellent  it works! it was just missing this part for testing the window control

$ffhwnd = _FFWindowGetHandle() now i will try Careca's code for the Random part thanks ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites 58 minutes ago, careca said: Im curious about what you mean with random size, do you really mean random? as in: anything between 0 and total width, and 0 and total height?

I plan to publish the code on GitHub.
In the indefinite future, when the project becomes more functional, if @Danp2 accepts it, I hope it may be included in the main WebDriver UDF.

I am waiting for yours feedback and help in the further development of this project.

REMARK 1:
As so far this UDF only supports GoogleChrome.
Adding support for other browsers shouldn't be difficult, I just didn't need to.

REMARK 2:
For now, this project is working but still as a early BETA, so please do not discuss, ask questions, or post examples or snippets of code that pertain to any function of this UDF in other part of this forum, until it is found acceptable. Simply: discusion and tests only here in this topic.

Hi, I am struggling in setting the value of a textarea based on the value of clipboard (that contains a long web page source codes). If I use _WD_SetElementValue, it freezes after some time, or appears to be pressing tab and goes out of focus. I can also use send keys but i need the script to run in the background.
Here is the full script:
#Include "Chrome.au3" #Include "wd_core.au3" #Include "wd_helper.au3" #Include "WinHttp.au3" #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> #include <Excel.au3> Local $sDesiredCapabilities,$sSession SetupChrome() _WD_Startup() $sSession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities) _WD_LoadWait($sSession) _WD_Navigate($sSession, "http://demo.borland.com/testsite/stadyn_largepagewithimages.html") _WD_LoadWait($sSession) Global$sSource = _WD_GetSource($sSession) Local$Paste = ClipPut($sSource) Local$sData = ClipGet() Local $aArray = 0, _$iOffset = 1 While 1 $aArray = StringRegExp($sData, '(?s)<p>.*</p>', $STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH,$iOffset) If @error Then ExitLoop $iOffset = @extended For$i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1 Local$Paste = ClipPut($aArray[$i]) Local $sRegExData = ClipGet() ;MsgBox(0, "", "$sRegExData = " & $sRegExData) Next WEnd _WD_Navigate($sSession, "https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_textarea_placeholder") _WD_WaitElement($sSession,$_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "iframe#iframeResult") Local $sElement1 = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "iframe#iframeResult") _WD_FrameEnter($sSession, $sElement1) _WD_WaitElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//html/body/textarea")$textarea = _WD_FindElement($sSession,$_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//html/body/textarea") _WD_ElementAction($sSession,$textarea, 'click') ;WD SetElementValue(SsSession, Stextarea, $sRegExData) <-- I can do this but the focus goes out, or the browser freezes _WD_FrameLeave($sSession) sleep(2000) Send("^v") _WD_LoadWait($sSession) _WD_Shutdown() Func SetupChrome() _WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe') _WD_Option('Port', 9515) _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"')$sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c": true, "args":["start-maximized","disable-infobars"]}}}}' EndFunc ;==>SetupChrome Can someone help me please, or re-direct me to the right path? TIA!

• This is for those pages that seem to load when you use _FFOpenURL(), but they have a text saying "please wait while we load your page..." but according to _FFOpenURL() the page has loaded.  An example seen in popular sites is the Cloudflare page saying "Checking your browser before...". It's the opposite of pausing a script until an element is visible on a page. It takes Elements in the form of id, xpath or text search.
Global $BrowserPort = 4242 Global$TimeOut = 60000 Global $LocalHost = "127.0.0.1" Func _FFWaitWhileElement($thiselement, $elementtype = "xpath",$timeoutms = 60000) _FFConnect($LocalHost,$BrowserPort, $TimeOut) Local$Element Local $ElementFound = 1 Local$TimeoutCountdown = 0 While $ElementFound <> 0 And$TimeoutCountdown < $timeoutms If$elementtype = "xpath" Then $Element = _FFXPath($thiselement) EndIf If $elementtype = "id" Then Local$ConstructXPath = ".//*[@id='" & $thiselement & "']"$Element = _FFXPath($ConstructXPath) EndIf ; MsgBox(0, "",$Element) Local $ElementXPathTextContent = _FFCmd("FFau3.xpath.textContent") ; MsgBox(0, "",$ElementXPathTextContent) Local $ElementXPathInnerHTML = _FFCmd("FFau3.xpath.innerHTML") ; MsgBox(0, "",$ElementXPathInnerHTML) If $ElementXPathTextContent = "_FFCmd_Err" Or$ElementXPathInnerHTML = "_FFCmd_Err" Then $ElementFound = 0 Else$ElementFound = 1 EndIf If $elementtype = "text" Then$ElementFound = _FFSearch($thiselement) ; MsgBox(0, "",$ElementFound) EndIf $TimeoutCountdown += 1000 _FFDisConnect() _FFConnect($LocalHost, $BrowserPort,$TimeOut) WEnd Return $ElementFound EndFunc _FFConnect($LocalHost, $BrowserPort,$TimeOut) _FFOpenURL("https://www.site.com/page", True) _FFWaitForElement("Please Wait...","text", 60000) MsgBox(0,"","Page finished loading") It's pretty simple, hope it helps some of you who are working with FF.au3 :)

• So I was trying to write a function that can find a button (or any other XPath Element) and scroll the page + move the mouse to the location of the button.
My logic for this was:
1. get position of button using _FFGetPosition
2. get inner dimensions of browser window and total dimensions of page
3. divide total dimensions by inner dimensions to get number of page down operations
4. use Mod() to get remaining pixels offset
5. MouseMove() and add requisite offsets for Titlebar etc (what the +5 and +54 is for in the last line)
Example Code:
_FFConnect($LocalHost,$BrowserPort, $TimeOut) Local$Button = _FFXPath(".//*[@id='thisbutton']") Local $ButtonPosition = _FFGetPosition($Button) Local $ElementWidth =$ButtonPosition[0] Local $ElementHeight =$ButtonPosition[1] Local $InnerWidth = _FFCmd("window.content.innerWidth") Local$InnerHeight = _FFCmd("window.content.innerHeight") Local $PageWidth = _FFCmd(".body.offsetWidth") Local$PageHeight = _FFCmd(".body.offsetHeight") Local $PGDNNo = Int($ElementHeight/$InnerHeight) Local$PGDNMod = Mod($ElementHeight,$InnerHeight) ; MsgBox(0,"","$ElementX: " &$ElementWidth & @CRLF & "$ElementY: " &$ElementHeight) ; MsgBox(0,"","$InnerWidth: " &$InnerWidth & @CRLF & "$InnerHeight: " &$InnerHeight) ; MsgBox(0,"","$PageWidth: " &$PageWidth & @CRLF & "$PageHeight: " &$PageHeight) ; MsgBox(0,"",$PGDNNo) ; MsgBox(0,"",$PGDNMod) Local $iter = 1 While$iter <= $PGDNNo WinActivate($BrowserWindowClass,"") _FFCmd("window.content.scrollByPages(1)") $iter += 1 WEnd MouseMove($ElementWidth + 5, $PGDNMod + 54) This isn't working. In some cases, it's not doing the page down operation the number of times needed, or not accurately pinpointing the location. I think there may be something wrong with the logic I'm using. What am I doing wrong? Thanks. • By Sanja Hello forum, I have the problem that I can not use Firefox in combination with WebDriver when using AutoIt on some websites. Of course it does not work with the very website I need it to work with. As soon as I want to open the desired website, I get the little robot icon which tells me that the "browser is under remote control" and the website stays blank. I CAN open the website (www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de) but I get blocked when I want to go to my account, to be precise. I am using AutoIt 3.3.14.5 I have checked my FireFox version. It is up to date. Also the special browser drivers like gecko etrc. are up to date too and everything works fine with the WebDriver demo. It seems that another user also had the same problem, but the thread has already been closed and the users solution (setting security lower did not work for me). I mean I can only choose between "standard", "strict" and "customized". On "customized I unchecked everything but it still would not change anything. I also have checked Google Chrome and MS Edge. Same result. I tried swiching profiles (only with FireFox). Same result. I tried to acess a previously opened FireFox session where I manually logged in by using this code snippet: _WD_Option('Driver', 'C:\Path\to\the\executable\geckodriver.exe') _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log trace --connect-existing --marionette-port 2828') _WD_Option('Port', 4444) Obviously I adjusted the path of the geckodriver.exe but it did not work at all on my computer. So far my code is really basically nothing but I can not even start to code. I myself am not a real coder and I know only the very basics like loops, conditions and variables. ---------------------------------------- ; Script Start #include <Array.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <File.au3> #include <GuiComboBoxEx.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <StringConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include "wd_core.au3" #include "wd_helper.au3" #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Local$sDesiredCapabilities, $sSession,$sElement SetupGecko() $_WD_DEBUG =$_WD_DEBUG_None _WD_Startup() $sSession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities) _WD_Navigate($sSession, "https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/m-meine-anzeigen.html?sort=CREATION_DATE_ASC&keyword=winter") Exit Func SetupGecko() _WD_Option('Driver', 'geckodriver.exe') _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log trace --marionette-port 2828') _WD_Option('Port', 4444)$sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities":{"alwaysMatch": {"moz:firefoxOptions": {"args": ["-profile", "' & "C:/Users/myaccount/AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/0123456.default-release" & '"],"log": {"level": "trace"}}}}}' EndFunc ;==>SetupGecko Func SetupChrome() _WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe') _WD_Option('Port', 9515) _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--verbose --log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"') $sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c": true, "excludeSwitches": [ "enable-automation"]}}}}' EndFunc ;==>SetupChrome Func SetupEdge() _WD_Option('Driver', 'msedgedriver.exe') _WD_Option('Port', 9515) _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--verbose --log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\msedge.log"')$sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"ms:edgeOptions": {"binary": "' & StringReplace(@ProgramFilesDir, "\", "/") & '/Microsoft/Edge/Application/msedge.exe", "excludeSwitches": [ "enable-automation"], "useAutomationExtension": false}}}}' EndFunc ;==>SetupEdge --------------------------------------
I left the three setup functions in, because I do not care what browser I use as long as I can start coding.
Also, please understand that I am not trying to be lazy here. I do not want someone to code for me. Maybe the problem is very basic, but I just do not know how to eliminate that restriction.
Is it something I need to uncheck in the browser settings or is it more complicated? If you need more information, I will be happy to provide those.
If somebody has an idea or a solution, I would very much appreciate it.

Edit:
I am not bothered by the robot icon itself. I do not care about it.  If I try to acess my regular ebay account: "https://mesg.ebay.de/mesgweb/ViewMessages/0" it works like a charm despite the notification that the browser is remotely controlled.
My problem is, that the first website does not load for some reason ONLY when the browser is remote controlled.
