Relaunching IE and navigate to a URL when loading takes more time

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone,

When I launch a URL and the webpage takes more time to load (say more than 1 minute), I want the URL to be relaunched.

I used _IELoadWait(). But the control doesn't get pass through the _IELoadWait() command, since the webpage takes more time to load.

I searched some of the older posts related to this topic. But I couldn't work them out.

Please guide me.

Sure Danp2.

Global $oIE_SL_CA = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($oIE_SL_CA, "---URL-HERE---")

The IE window is just passive for long time. But the webpage was not loaded.

I tried the following code after the _IELoadWait()

Local $sStatusMessage = _IEPropertyGet($oIE_SL_CA, "statustext")
MsgBox(0, "Information", $sStatusMessage)

The status text was not displayed since the control didn't get past _IELoadWait().

I tried the following code with time out value as 10 seconds. But the message box I have coded below was displayed only after several seconds when the webpage was completely loaded.

While 1

      _IELoadWait($oIE_SL_CA, 0, 10000) ; Timeout Value in milliseconds

      MsgBox(0, "Information", "ReLaunching")

      _IENavigate($oIE_SL_CA, "---URL-HERE---")

      If Not @error Then ExitLoop

I think the timeout was not considered.

Only after nearly one full minute, the webpage was loaded and the message box was populated.

Is there a way to consider the timeout value alone and relaunch the url when the timeout has occurred?

Try this please


#include <IE.au3>

$oIE_SL_CA = _IECreate()

While 1

    _IENavigate($oIE_SL_CA, "https://google.com", 0) ; change the url

    _IELoadWait($oIE_SL_CA, 0, 10000) ; Timeout Value in milliseconds
    If Not @error Then ExitLoop

    MsgBox(0, "Information", "ReLaunching")


If the Timeout is reached the _IELoadWait Function returns an error.

The script only exits the loop if there is no error, aka the site loading successfully.

      My color of pixel exists more than one place.
      How can I control the position so I find the exact position before I continue in my code?

      Hi dear
      With this script you can print Unicode text in the CMD screen
      the script is  easy to use
      just you  write the text that contains Unicode in the first input
      and the script automatically reflect the code in the second input
       you can copy the text to the clipboard
      or you can try printing the text in the CMD window
      I apologize to everyone for colors and shape if not appropriate
      I'm a blind man and I do not see
      Thank you for your understanding

      Hello all, i have about 20 arrays in my script and i need to delete the first element of each, i have the name of the arrays in another array (its used in another part of the script)  and i tried to passing the names to from that array to the _ArrayDelete function but nothing happens and i get an error code :1 which state that i'm trying to delete an array which is not an array
      code example
      #include <Array.au3> global $allarrays[3] = ['array1','array2','array3'] global $array1[3] = ['1', '2', '3'] global $array2[3] = ['1', '2', '3'] global $array3[3] = ['1', '2', '3'] for $i = 0 to UBound($allarrays) - 1 _ArrayDelete($allarrays[$i], 0) Next _ArrayDisplay($array1) obviously i can just use  _arraydelete over and over however i'm looking for a more elegant way of doing this

      I am trying to use the ControlClick in a "save as"-window to select the path of where to save the document.
      I found out that when in press the icon in front of the path, i select the path. So I am trying to press that button (i have attached a print screen of this window).
      While trying to figure out how i had to use the ControlClick, it said somewhere that i could us Au3Info to find out what title,... i should use with the ControlClick.
      The result of the Au3Info I have attached aswel.
      The ControlClick that i tried are these: (and none of these even move the mouse)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:4]", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:4]", "", "1001", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32]", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("Save project as", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      I don't know what I am doing wrong.
      Should I use a controlID? is my windowtitle wrong?
      Can anyone help me?
      Thanks in advance,
