Closing all IE tabs except a selected one

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

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[1]
$aIE[0] = 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[0] = $i ;first item holds count
    $i += 1
WEnd

MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE[0])

; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab

 

Thanks for any and all help

I use loops to wait. That way it’s dynamic.  I detest and refused to use static waits Because they are wasteful in most cases.

Thanks Danp2 & Earthshine. According to the docs, _IECreate waits for the page to load by default. I tried waiting using both methods in the past but not cleanly so I figured I would try it again like you both suggested.

First using a large sleep of 5 seconds after all the navigations took place and the first page loaded up alone and the program sat in a long sleep cycle. I would of force killing the autoit script after about 40 seconds.  

Second I remarked the sleep command then added _IELoadWait after each navigation but _IELoadWait loads the tabs immediately and still shows only 1 result . Here is what I tried the 2nd time.

#include <IE.au3>

Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800
$oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com")
_IELoadWait($oIE)
__IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param)
_IELoadWait($oIE)
__IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param)
_IELoadWait($oIE)
;Sleep(5000)


Local $aIE[1]
$aIE[0] = 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[0] = $i ;first item holds count
    $i += 1
WEnd
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE[0])
; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab

 

Not giving up I know both of you seem to have tried this before so I did it again with just the 5 second sleep after the Create & Navigation commands but this time it worked like a charm.  Odd. I tried it a few more times and now it's working as so

#include <IE.au3>

Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800
$oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com")
;_IELoadWait($oIE)
__IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param)
;_IELoadWait($oIE)
__IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param)
;_IELoadWait($oIE)
Sleep(3000)


Local $aIE[1]
$aIE[0] = 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[0] = $i ;first item holds count
    $i += 1
WEnd
;MsgBox(0, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE[0])
; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab

Great now my question to everyone is how can I get _IELoadWait to work correctly as method 1 above doesn't but instead skips to the loop after it and doesn't recognize all the open tabs

OK working on it a bit, I wanted to figure it out on my own.. (You guys are great though), I went through the IE.AU3 file and it wasn't documented really but I got an idea that the 2nd parameter was maybe if I wanted to pause the loading and the 3rd parameter was a timeout value which might wait longer than the default. 

#include <IE.au3>

Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800
$oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com")
;_IELoadWait($oIE,0,5000)
__IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param)
_IELoadWait($oIE,0,5000)
__IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param)
_IELoadWait($oIE,0,5000)



Local $aIE[1]
$aIE[0] = 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[0] = $i ;first item holds count
    $i += 1
WEnd
;MsgBox(0, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE[0])
; This doesn't return the list of tabs in the console just the first tab

 

Hmm  it's still not consistent so for now until I get a more definitive answer why it isn't waiting correctly I added a little more delay to the _IELoadWait as so

#include <IE.au3>

Const $ie_new_in_tab = 0x0800
$oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com")
_IELoadWait($oIE,250,3000)
__IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param)
_IELoadWait($oIE,250,3000)
__IENavigate($oIE, "https://www.google.com/", 1, $ie_new_in_tab) ;(obj,url,wait,param)
_IELoadWait($oIE,250,3000)



Local $aIE[1]
$aIE[0] = 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[0] = $i ;first item holds count
    $i += 1
WEnd
MsgBox(0, "Browsers Found", "Number of browser instances in the array: " & $aIE[0])

I had to take back my solution since it wasn't consistent

I believe the issue you are running into is that $oIE always points to the first tab and not at any of the subsequent tabs. So each call to _IELoadWait is checking the first tab, instead of the most recent one. You will have to get an object reference to the desired tab before you can check it's status with _IELoadWait.

      The following code creates a IE blank window
      Local $oIE = _IECreate()  
      But when i use Navigate to the URL, it open the URL in Microsoft Edge instead if IE.
      _IENavigate($oIE,$url)  
      What should i do to navigate in IE.
      Complete code :
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <IE.au3> #Region TESTING Local $url = 'https://www.youtube.com' Local $oIE = _IECreate() _IENavigate($oIE,$url) #EndRegion Console Output
      IE.au3 T3.0-2 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IESTATUS_ClientDisconnected (-2147023174, Browser has been deleted prior to operation.)  
      I have searched the forums but did not find such kind of post.
      Other posts were describing How to use Edge using Web driver selenium.
       
      Edit: I am working in Windows10. Recently many changes have been done by Microsoft to IE and Microsoft Edge. (2020)
      Earlier in 2019 this was working fine.

      Hi everyone,
      I have created a ListView that is in a tab, and I want to display an image in that tab, with the ListView on top.
      However, the image still appears on top of my ListView.
      If I remove the tabs everything works. 
      I looked at the autoit documentation and the <GuiListView.au3> documentation , I can't figure out how to display a background image, and put on top a ListView, inside a tab. 😥
      Here is the code:
      Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1) $Form1 = GUICreate($Titre, 700, 627, $Form1Width, $Form1Height); main window $tabulation = GUICtrlCreateTab(148,0,700,580); creating tabs $tab1=GUICtrlCreateTabItem("Tab 1"); first tab GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_SHOW); this tab is selected by default $Pic1 = GUICtrlCreatePic("image.jpg", 0, 30, 700, 627) GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE). $idListview = GUICtrlCreateListView("list 1|list 2|list 3", 200, 50, 390, 200) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) While 1     Sleep(100) WEnd Thank you in advance.

      I'm trying to create script that would login on my SAP WEBI "web page" and replace some uploaded excel files. But i'm having problem on even the log in.
      These are user fill elements with Firefox Inspector
      <input type="text" id="_id0:logon:CMS" name="_id0:logon:CMS"> <input type="text" id="_id0:logon:USERNAME" name="_id0:logon:USERNAME"> <input type="password" id="_id0:logon:PASSWORD" name="_id0:logon:PASSWORD"> LogOnButton
      <input type="submit" id="_id0:logon:logonButton" value="Log On" class="logonButtonNoHover logon_button_no_hover" onmouseover="this.className = 'logonButtonHover logon_button_hover';" onmouseout="this.className = 'logonButtonNoHover logon_button_no_hover';">  
       
      My example, I tried _IEGetObjByName and _IEGetObjById but the script only open page but will not even fill out the form
        #include <IE.au3> Call("signIn") Func signIn() Global $oIE = _IECreate("http://192.xxx.xxx.xx:xxx/BOE/BI") Sleep (5000) Local $server = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "_id0:logon:CMS") Local $username = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "_id0:logon:USERNAME") Local $password = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "_id0:logon:PASSWORD") Local $button = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "_id0:logon:logonButton") _IEFormElementSetValue($server, "TestServer:1000") _IEFormElementSetValue($username, "MyUserName") _IEFormElementSetValue($password, "MyPass") ; THIS PART ABOUT BUTTON CLICK I DONT UNDERSTAND AT ALL $sSelector = "body > div:nth-of-type(2) > div > div:nth-of-type(3) > div > table > tbody > tr > td > table > tbody > tr > td > table > tbody > tr:nth-of-type(1) > td > div > div:nth-of-type(1) > form > div:nth-of-type(5) > button" $signInUC = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sSelector) _IEAction($signInUC, "click") EndFunc ;==>signIn  
      I would be very grateful for any help

      Hello ,

      A website I am trying to login with my credentials.
      And retrieve the cookie into a text file.
      Unable to do so.
      Is it that certain,  Httponly , type - are not allowed to be fetched.

      Then further ,
      I will be checking every 5 minutes if my session is active , else re-login and re-fetch the cookie.
      For the second part , I will probably fetch some table and see if not in appropriate format do Part 1 : Fetch Cookie - again.
      Any better way , tips would be appreciated.
       
      Thanks

      Hello! Thanks you for looking at my post
      **No source code I'm sorry work related can't copy information**
      I've been using autoit for about 1 year. 
      I'm having trouble automating a click on an internet explorer web page and I've tried a lot of examples from help pages and forums already. The object I'm trying to click on isnt always in the same spot so I can't use mouse click or control click, I have tried to use the different get collection options and clickbyname, or index or get object. I'm just struggling. 
      Description of object I'm trying to click -- 
      HTML Code looks like <a ng-click.. "Click Here" it appears it's just a click able object named "click here" that opens a hidden window by running a script inside the web page. I'm not able to grab the information from the window unless it's open so I have to automate this click somehow. 
       
      I understand it's difficult to assist without having something to look at, I apologize for that sincerely and appreciate and assistance and suggestions.
