Closing all IE tabs except a selected one

Recommended Posts

nassausky

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.

      Hello,
      I'm trying to read a div element and wait until it hits 100%.
      The structure is like :
      <div class="progress-bar" style="width: 48.0219%;  overflow: hidden; "></div>
      And want to wait until :
      <div class="progress-bar" style="width: 100%;  overflow: hidden; "></div>
      because afther this there will be an redirection whish i don't know the URL from and want to catsh this URL.
      And want to push a button on this redidertion page.

      Is there a best pratice way how to do this or is there a better way to wait for the redirection?
      Maybe wait until button exist or something?

      Does anybody could give me some tips about this challange?
       
      thnx in advanced.

       Hi Guys,
      Could you please try out my script on win10 machine (simple site scrape)? One of my users complains it doesnt work on his win10, but it works fine on my win7. The error he gets is on the .FireEvent call. I think it is admin rights or IE / Edge issue, but don't have win10 to test it out.
      Thanks in advance.

      I have a goofy problem. I am hoping someone could shed some light. The example is not going around the text box. It is way off. 
      I have seen some post blaming IE 11, however I have IE11 on my desktop and it works fine.
      Is there anything I can do that might fix this?

      Hello,
      I try to get all the text from a news site around a subject.
      The first run I get all the text inside a attribute in an array.
      When i try to go back and reload another page it chrashes and think it because "$oIE.GoBack"
      I couldn't find anything in the help/forum around this subject.
      Do I need to reload the $oIE or something afther an X.GoBack?
      The error i got is :
      if $oTag2.GetAttribute("class") == "NewsDetail" Then if $oTag2^ ERROR I'm not shure why I got this error, maybe someone could explain?
      Also I'm open for some pointers in this test script because I'm pretty new in working whit the IE.UDF
      Maybe there is an simpler way to get the same results?

      test script:
      #include <IE.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Array.au3> HotKeySet("{ESC}", "Terminate") Global $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.iex.nl/Zoeken/Nieuws.aspx?q=air%20france") ;get first subject Global $oLink1 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "ctl00_ctl00_Content_LeftContent_NewsSearch_repNews_ctl00_linkNews") Sleep(500) _IEAction($oLink1, "click") Sleep(500) Global $oTags = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") Global $aResults[1] For $oTag In $oTags if $oTag.GetAttribute("class") == "NewsDetail" Then _ArrayAdd($aResults, $oTag.innerTEXT) EndIf Next $aResults[0] = UBound($aResults) - 1 _ArrayDisplay($aResults, "Episodelist") ConsoleWrite($aResults[1] & @CRLF) $oIE.GoBack ;get second subject Global $oLink2 = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "ctl00_ctl00_Content_LeftContent_NewsSearch_repNews_ctl01_linkNews") Sleep(500) _IEAction($oLink2, "click") Sleep(500) Local $oTags2 = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "div") Local $aResults2[1] For $oTag2 In $oTags2 if $oTag2.GetAttribute("class") == "NewsDetail" Then _ArrayAdd($aResults2, $oTag2.innerTEXT) EndIf Next $aResults2[0] = UBound($aResults2) - 1 ConsoleWrite($aResults2[1] & @CRLF) Func Terminate() _IEQuit($oIE) Exit EndFunc ;==>Terminate

      I'm trying to write an autoit script to select from the dropdown list as you see in the attached picture. 
      I read the help page for _IEFormElementOptionSelect, but I cannot grasp how to correlate that with the source code that I'm seeing. any suggestions?
