Is it possible to access DOM document Object from Chrome?

Recommended Posts

Vitaliy4us

It is possible to create an object from IE application (method ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")  is used for this aim):

$oIE = _IECreate(URL)

and then to have an access to DOM document object:

$oDoc = $oIE.document

Is there any way to do the same for Chrome and FireFox?

Yes, I know that chrome.au3 library is available. But my question is different. I'd like to know is it possible to get DOM document object in the same way as IE.au3 does.

Yes, it is "quite" possible but you must create entire UDF by your own.

Of course you can use

No. My question is still about the document object, but not about the UDF. You can easily avoid using IE.au3 to get document object from Internet Explorer:

Local $oIE = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
$oIE.visible = 1
$oIE.navigate("www.google.com")
Sleep(5000)
$oDoc = $oIE.document

Is there any way to do the same for Chrome?

I would be very grateful if you would point me to the place in the specified scripts where the document object is obtained for using in AutoIt

@Vitaliy4us You haven't explained what you intend to do with it once you have the document object reference. Please provide a detailed explanation so that we can better assist you.

IE provides the possibility to get document object without any additional libraries or UDF. And having this object you are able to do everything. It means no JSON, no HTTP, no web driver, nothing else is necessary. Very simple, just because the object

ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")

could be created. As far as I can see, no other browser allows to do the same. Because of this we need all those UDFs (and you did this great job, thank you). So I'd like to know what is the difference between the browsers and why it happens.
