#include <IE.au3> error?

Recommended Posts

TotalAuto

Hi All

I am new to AutoIT, its community, and pretty much programming in general. 

After a bit of online research, I decided to focus on AutoIT as my first programming attempt as it seems quite powerful and amazing once you become advanced at it. I have read some introductory pdfs which where good, including from the guy I think who invented it. I also watched various sketchy youtube videos, checked out the forum etc. I have to admit it's a bit confusing starting off but I reckon if I just keep pushing forward with continual hard work I can only get better.  

My first AutoIT project has been to open Internet Explorer and automatically log into Twitter to save doing it manually. I plan to run this after windows start up via task scheduler. I am using the #include <IE.au3> UDF but for some reason about 20% of the time I receive the following orange error notifications at the bottom of the editor (pic attached). When it happens the IE browser just doesn't open but the program continues to run which mucks up the script. 

Does anyone know why this is happening and how it can be fixed? Also is there some other better, less error prone way, to open IE and automatically log in?

I have tried to use the Get Object NAME and ID commands to insert the username and password (i.e. the xxxxxxxxxx's) but when I right click to use "Inspect element" there is no name or id. It seems to be some sort of java script reference?

I am using Windows 7 with latest updates and Internet Explorer version 11.

As this is my first post I hope I am following protocols, and if not, please let me know and I will improve.

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the forum.

As a first hint it would be good if you share your code (if to long that part which is failing but in a way that it is running stand alone). Therefor you find in the editor the code button "<>" where you can fill in your code (snippet). It will highlight syntax as known in SciTE for better reading and is fast to copy.

If you look to the help file for _IECreate() you find the part about errors:

@error: 1 ($_IEStatus_GeneralError) - General Error
3 ($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) - Invalid Data Type
4 ($_IEStatus_InvalidObjectType) - Invalid Object Type
6 ($_IEStatus_LoadWaitTimeout) - Load Wait Timeout
8 ($_IEStatus_AccessIsDenied) - Access Is Denied
9 ($_IEStatus_ClientDisconnected) - Client Disconnected
@extended:  Set to true (1) or false (0) depending on the success of $iTryAttach

So add the following line after your _IECreate() code:

ConsoleWrite("error: " & @error & @TAB & "extended: " & @extended & @CRLF)

Nearly almost every function will set the @error macro with a number if an error occur. And sometimes the @extended macro too. These you can read out directly after the function to debug your code. Presenting us this error number or message as found in help file will lead to right direction better.

Regards, Conrad

Hallo Conrad

Thank you for your kind welcome to this forum and your useful advice. I will make sure I post my script from now on. I will also try the error code your suggest to try and work out why my problem occurs.

Although it is early days, and I do not have much programming experience, I feel like I am making progress. Slow and steady wins the race.

Cheers

Daniel

      Hey. I'm working on a new project and was wondering if there is a better way to "update" my Column E array. 
      Here is my code: 
      Local $nI  = 0                                                            ;Creates a name index of 0: nI = Name index Local $nII = 1                                                            ;Creates a name index of 1 for second loop: nII = Name Index 2 For    $iN = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1                                       ;Checks the roster for any names that appear twice      For $iN2 = 0 To $IndexRows Step 1          if $d_Names[$nI] == $d_Names[$nII] And $d_Names[$nII] <> "" Then              Local $timeSheetName = _ArraySearch($e_Names, $d_Names[$nI], 0, 0, 0, 0, 1)              ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Found it", $d_Names[$nI] & " In column E on Row " & $timeSheetName)              Local $eI  = $timeSheetName + 1              ;ConsoleWrite($timeSheetName & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite($eI & @CRLF)              ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF)              _Excel_RangeInsert($OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, "E" & $eI & ":F" & $eI, $xlShiftDown)                                                                          ;Inserts a empty cell in columns E and F.              _Excel_RangeWrite($OpenWorkbook, $OpenWorkbook.ActiveSheet, $d_Names[$nII], "E" & $eI)                                                                         ;Fills the empty cell in columns E with the doubled name              $aArray_Index = 2                                           ;Array element counter              For $Index = 2 To $IndexRows Step 1                        ;Loops through every row in the Excel file unto no rows are found or a null row is found                  $Array_Value_E = _Excel_RangeRead($OpenWorkbook, Default, "E"&$Index)                  $e_names[$aArray_Index] = $Array_Value_E                ;While the code loops every value in column E is stored in the E array (updating the array)                  $aArray_Index += 1              Next              ExitLoop          EndIf      Next      $nI  += 1      $nII += 1 Next Basically, It checks a roster for people whose name appears twice then inserts a new "row" for that person because they work in two different departments.
      I have to find that name however in Column E if two appear in column D. My code works but I think it is not as efficient as it could be. 
      Any ideas on how to improve the "update" for my array?
      (once it finds the double names in Column D it then searches for that name by going name by name in the Column E array and once it finds it inserts a new row. However, the E array doesn't have that new row stored in it so I have to "update" the array to properly find the next name)
      Any and all tips would be greatly appreciated. 
       
      NOTE: Just assume I'm opening the excel file properly please do not add that code in, it only complicates your answer.

      Hi,
      I was looking into a way to delete a registry key (not a specific value, an entire key) if it is present. I was considering using RegRead and RegDelete. However, RegRead appears to only read values, not just keys. Is there a way to delete an entire registry key if it is present? I have heard that the below function may help.

      The purpose is to try find the difference in days. Any suggestion?
