Recommended Posts

Hello

I am trying to get chrome to save it's current webpage to a pdf using autoit.  I wold like to save the file into a folder on the desktop called "ChromeFiles" .  However when I use the send command chrome only occasionally responds.

Thank you

Simon

      Hi guys, i want to convert WebKit/Chrome timestamps that i've found in chrome cookie database to Human-Readable time (if possible, with UTC or GMT offset).
      Example of WebKit/Chrome timestamp: 13228999534132232 Output that i want: 2020-03-18 20:16:56 This site has a tool to do this work, but i wonder how to convert this time (this timestamp's time bases are 1600/01/01) to human-readable time:

      Hi everyone! i have Two-Problems:
      I've used this code to decode and export cookies from Google Chrome application's "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cookie" file but i can't receive any data: #include <CryptProtect.au3> #include <SQLite.au3> #include <SQLite.dll.au3> Global Const $g_sLoc_Output = @ScriptDir & "\Cookies.txt" If FileExists($g_sLoc_Output) Then FileDelete($g_sLoc_Output) EndIf $hFO_Output = FileOpen($g_sLoc_Output ,1) If $hFO_Output <> -1 Then FileWrite($hFO_Output, Chrome()) FileFlush($hFO_Output) FileClose($hFO_Output) EndIf Func Chrome() Local $q, $r, $sOutput, $sLoc_ChromeDB = EnvGet("localappdata") & "\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cookies" If FileExists($sLoc_ChromeDB) = False Then Return "" _SQLite_Startup() If @error Then MsgBox(16, "SQLite Error", "SQLite3.dll Can't be Loaded! - " & $__g_hPrintCallback_SQLite & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Exiting application") Exit -1 EndIf _SQLite_Open($sLoc_ChromeDB) _SQLite_Query(-1, 'SELECT host_key, name, value, encrypted_value FROM cookies', $q) While _SQLite_FetchData($q, $r) = 0 $sOutput = $sOutput & r[0] & @CRLF & r[1] WEnd _SQLite_Close() _SQLite_Shutdown() Return $sOutput EndFunc I've used this code too for decrypt my saved passwords and export from Google Chrome application's "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Login Data" file but i can't get decrypted data: #include <CryptProtect.au3> #include <SQLite.au3> #include <SQLite.dll.au3> Global Const $g_sLoc_Output = @ScriptDir & "\Credentials.txt" If FileExists($g_sLoc_Output) Then FileDelete($g_sLoc_Output) EndIf $hFO_Output = FileOpen($g_sLoc_Output ,1) If $hFO_Output <> -1 Then FileWrite($hFO_Output, Chrome()) FileFlush($hFO_Output) FileClose($hFO_Output) EndIf Func Chrome() Local $q, $r, $sOutput, $sLoc_ChromeDB = EnvGet("localappdata") & "\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Login Data" If FileExists($sLoc_ChromeDB) = False Then Return "" _SQLite_Startup() If @error Then MsgBox(16, "SQLite Error", "SQLite3.dll Can't be Loaded! - " & $__g_hPrintCallback_SQLite & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Exiting application / Zavolej Honzovi") Exit -1 EndIf _SQLite_Open($sLoc_ChromeDB) _SQLite_Query(-1, "select * from logins;", $q) While _SQLite_FetchData($q, $r) = 0 $sOutput = $sOutput & "======================| " & $r[7] & " |======================" & @CRLF & "Login URL: " & $r[0] & @CRLF & "Email/User: " & $r[3] & @CRLF & "Password: " & _CryptUnprotectData($r[5], "") & @CRLF & @CRLF WEnd _SQLite_Close() _SQLite_Shutdown() Return $sOutput EndFunc Thanks!

      Internet Explorer is nearly dead, newer versions of Firefox can't any longer be automated using Stilgar's FF UDF.
      Hence more and more users (including me) need to look at automating Webbrowsers using WebDriver.
      That's why I have started to create a tutorial in the wiki.
      It should describe all necessary steps from intallation to usage.

      I'm still collecting ideas for the tutorial - that's where you come into play.
      What do you expect to see in such a tutorial?
      Which browsers should be covered (Firefox, Chrome and Edge are settled)? Any questions for the FAQ? Which (high level) coding examples do you expect (like "How to attach to a running browser instance") ... Like to see your comments
       
      ToDo-List:
      Add "Tools" section and add ChroPath plugin. Done. FAQ: "How to attach to a running browser instance". Done. Explain the difference between iuiautomation, iaccessible, autoit, webdriver. Done. The AutoIt FAQ 40 has been extended. Detailed description of each function. Done Example for "how to deal with downloading". Use function _WD_DownloadFile. Example for "how to deal with popups (alerts, print or save dialog). Use function_WD_AlertRespond to respond to a user prompt. Example for "how to deal with multiple tabs". Use functions _WD_NewTab (create a new tab), _WD_Window (close or switch to a tab) and _WD_Attach (attach to existing tab).

      Hello Experts,
      I have Zero experience with Autoit + Adobe Acrobat, and I really in need to get this working as PoC.
      I am trying to automate some manual actions below are the steps I would like to do.
      INPUT to script : 
      1. PDF file to open
      2. String that I would like to add as \\Server\Directory name
      Steps : 
      1. Open the file in Adobe Acrobat Pro
      2. Browse to View > Tools > Send For Review > Open (see image 1)
      3. On the launched tool bar click on "Send for Shared Connecting" (see image 2)
      4. Next select option "Automatically Collect comments on my..." in dropdown and click 'Next' (see image 3)
      5. Select radiobutton "Network folder" and paste the input "\\Server\Directory" in text field and click 'Next' (see image 4)
      Experts, I would really appreciate a quick script which I can run and get rolling.
      Please note, I would not likwe to rely on MouseClick and/or cordinates match approach.
      PLEASE SUPPORT!!!!
      Makz
