Autoit Script quit without any error using InetGet Function

Recommended Posts



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...

I wrote belong codes to work with autoit and having issues when autoit find not matching url available then autoit just script stopped without any error and I just want to same all the avaialble images on the website if links are not more left then script should moves on but script just stopped...

Here is complete scenerio

I've so many webpages with random number of images are hosting on those pages, in below code, InetGet able to download first three files easily and when it reaches to 4th link that is missing on the webpage that's why script stopped just but I want autoit to download only those images those are links are available and rest of files needs to be skipped automatically for this page if on the next page 4th link of image avaiable then autoit script needs to download 4th one also.

Furthermore, please help me to download files with it's original names instead of whatever name I want to same them like in InetGet I've to give some name to the file that I'm willind to download instead of original name that is available online.

Please Help me.

Here i my code;

$File6 = @ScriptDir & "\images_source.txt"
$txt6 = FileRead($File6)
$target_source7 = _StringBetween($txt6, 'src="', '"')
if Not @error Then
InetGet ( $target_source7[0], @ScriptDir & '\Description\Image1.jpg'); 1st image download coz link is available 
InetGet ( $target_source7[1], @ScriptDir & '\Description\Image2.jpg'); 2nd image download coz link is available
InetGet ( $target_source7[2], @ScriptDir & '\Description\Image3.jpg'); 3rd image download coz link is available
InetGet ( $target_source7[3], @ScriptDir & '\Description\Image4.jpg'); 4th image not able to download coz link is not available and script just stopped

Have you tried:

Do you have a copy of images_source.txt that we can use to get the original file names?

$File6 = @ScriptDir & "\images_source.txt"
$txt6 = FileRead($File6)
$target_source7 = _StringBetween($txt6, 'src="', '"')
if Not @error Then
InetGet ( $target_source7[0], @ScriptDir & '\Description\Image1.jpg', 0, 1); 1st image download coz link is available 
InetGet ( $target_source7[1], @ScriptDir & '\Description\Image2.jpg', 0, 1); 2nd image download coz link is available
InetGet ( $target_source7[2], @ScriptDir & '\Description\Image3.jpg', 0, 1); 3rd image download coz link is available
InetGet ( $target_source7[3], @ScriptDir & '\Description\Image4.jpg', 0, 1); 4th image not able to download coz link is not available and script just stopped

Hey Subz,

Basically I saved website source first into text file that is "images_source.txt" then use the codes next I quoted above but every URL having different number of image-URLs that's why when I removed the code of InetGet of 4th line it works for me on current URL's source code but on next pages I've more image URLs that's why I have to skip rest of images coz If I remove 4th line my script can only download first 3 files and rest of them I've to skip but I want to download all the images that a source code contains. ....So please guide me how can I pass the loop or something similar that can avoid showing me problem what I'm facing now...

Try this code:

#include <Array.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <InetConstants.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.rodsbyreid.co.nz/gallery.html")
Local $oImages = _IEImgGetCollection($oIE)
Local $aImages[0][2]
Local $hImage, $sImage, $sGallery = @ScriptDir & '\Description\'
For $oImage In $oImages
    $sImage = $sGallery & Execute("'" & StringRegexpReplace(StringTrimLeft($oImage.src, StringInStr($oImage.src, "/", 0, -1)), "%([0-9a-fA-F]{2})", "'& Chr(0x$1) &'") & "'")
    _ArrayAdd($aImages, $oImage.src & "|" & $sImage)
_ArrayAdd($aImages, "http://www.rodsbyreid.co.nz/noimageexists.jpg|" & $sGallery & "\noimageexists.jpg")
If FileExists($sGallery) = 0 Then DirCreate($sGallery)
For $i = 0 To UBound($aImages) - 1
    If FileExists($aImages[$i][1]) = 0 Then
        $hImage = InetGet($aImages[$i][0], $aImages[$i][1], $INET_FORCERELOAD, $INET_DOWNLOADBACKGROUND)
        Until InetGetInfo($hImage, $INET_DOWNLOADCOMPLETE) Or InetGetInfo($hImage, $INET_DOWNLOADERROR )

      Why I can't get more than two simultaneously background downloads?
      Simultaneously background downloads with InetGet() works! It was just server limitation from which I downloaded files.

      Hello there,
      I am using the function InetGet example in the help files on a website and getting the error 13. First, I searched the help files and the forum for a list of errors to consult to no avail. I suspect this is a 400's server reply based error but it would be nice to get more info about it.
      Please help, thanks.

      Hi Guys, I need help. I have searched the forum before posting and i couldn't find anything. The code below works fine when downloading files from "http" sites, but when trying to download from "https" sites, no files are downloaded. I tried different sites and I experience the same problem everywhere. Is there something I'm missing or doing wrong? Please note that I'm not a programmer and I'm new to this. I'm just using logic wherever i can to get things done. your help will be highly appreciated.

      ; Wait for the download to complete.

      First script here. Thanks for taking the time.
      I want to download a file from my dropbox or other cloud file host and I want autoit to read the file and proceed.
      Here are the references I've gone through, it's just I'm not familiar yet with autoit so I'm looking for advice:
      How would I start out downloading a text file from dropbox and if in the file there is a 1 then it will proceed with the rest of the script if there is a 0 or if the file cannot be downloaded I want it to just end.
      Thank you for taking the time to read this and I apologize in advance if this seems very trivial for some but this is my first script and I'm hoping this is the correct place to ask this question.

      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 > https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/185717-js-json-to-xml/
      I took a look here https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/104150-json-udf-library-fully-rfc4627-compliant/ 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
