Embedded IE fails to load webpage

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I encountered this strange issue while working on a freelance project, I cannot give you the webpage/website on which this is happening because it is an internal site which is inaccessible externally. I am attempting to create a GUI with an IE control embedded in it, but when I navigate to the desired address, it shows a blank white page.

The webpage does load if I use a different browser or normal (non-embedded) IE instance.

I managed to get my hands on the source of the blank page:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

                </td>
            </tr>
        </table>
    </body>
</html>

The ieframe.dll resources are a point of interest. I am not sure how the server is able to detect the embedded instance of IE :unsure:...

Any suggestions? Here is a basic outline of the script:

#include <IE.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Main()

While True
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func Main()
    ; Create GUI
    $hGUI = GUICreate("", $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT, $iLeft, $iTop, $WS_POPUP)
    $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
    ;$oIE = _IECreate() ; This works, but it is not embedded in the GUI
    GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT)
    GUISetState()

    ; Navigate to the URL and authenticate
    _IENavigate($oIE, $URL)
EndFunc

Thank you for the advice in advance!

@TheDcoder
In the Help file it is stated to set the style $WS_CLIPCHILDREN to the GUI, since there may be visualization issue without that style.
Does the script return any error after functions calling? :)

It did indeed help! Instead of the white blank page it did show an error when I added the style: "Navigation was cancelled" (or something along those lines).

What really fixed the issue was navigating to about:blank before performing any other actions (including navigation), so the working code looks a bit like this:

#include <IE.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

Main()

While True
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Func Main()
    ; Create GUI
    $hGUI = GUICreate("", $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT, $iLeft, $iTop, $WS_POPUP + $WS_CLIPCHILDREN)
    $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
    ;$oIE = _IECreate() ; This works, but it is not embedded in the GUI
    GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 0, 0, $GUI_WIDTH, $GUI_HEIGHT)
    GUISetState()

    ; Initialize by navigating to about:blank
    _IENavigate($oIE, 'about:blank')

    ; Navigate to the URL and authenticate
    _IENavigate($oIE, $URL)
EndFunc

Navigating to about:blank was indeed mentioned in the helpfile, but it only stated that we "must therefore use _IENavigate() to navigate this browser to 'about:blank' after it has been embedded into the parent application and before you attempt any operations that rely on having a document loaded (e.g. _IEBodyWriteHTML())". I did notice it initially when I was writing code, but I decided to navigate directly to the URL since I did not have to perform any operations relying on having a document loaded... now guess other operations are effected too :think:

Could the issue be the result of the embedded browser version using a very old version of IE? I vaguely recall a thread where you can adjust this, but you'll need to locate it on your own. 😉

Not really sure about that as I am pretty sure only one version of IE is present in an installation of Windows. Thanks for the tip but I have fixed my issue by navigating to about:blank first :)

Exactly!
It doesn't seem to affect any other "action" less the automatic navigation to the about:blank; by the way, happy to have helped (even if a little bit) :)

      Hey there!
      I am having a problem with clicking a button in IE. As you can see in the code, there would be a class name to click it, but since this button exists several times with exactly the same code, I can only use the "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" to separate it from the others. But this part is just pure text without any classification. 
      "<div class="checkmark" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" class="icon" viewBox="0 0 16 16" data-v-1e5b1f70=""><circle cx="8" cy="8" r="8" data-v-1e5b1f70="" /></svg></div>Noch nicht veröffentlicht"
      I was trying to click it with:
      #include <IE.au3> local $oNNVs = _IEFormGetCollection($oIE2) For $oNNV in $oNNVs If String($oNNV.innertext) = "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" Then _IEAction($oNNV, "click") EndIf Next and:
      $inputs = $oIE2.document.getElementsByTagName("div") For $input In $inputs If $input.innertext == "Noch nicht veröffentlicht" then $input.click() EndIf Next But nothing seems to work. Thanks for the help!

      Update: Download the latest version here.
      As my first stab at GUI scripting, I'm trying to write a simple graphical interface for Grep for Windows. I have a basic GUI, but I'm stuck on one point and nothing I've tried so far works. The sticking point is that while the Tab key works to move focus from one input control to the next, clicking the mouse on any but the first input does nothing. This seems like a basic feature of GUI functionality that should work out of the box (like Tab), but clearly I'm missing something. I tried (among many other things) Melba23's technique in the post below, but this doesn't do what I'm after -- getting the left click to set the insertion point for user input. Would greatly appreciate a pointer or two. 😉
      Here's my code so far:
      ; Grep for Windows -- GUI [CLD] #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", -2) #cs FileInstall("X:\nix\search1.ico", @TempDir & "\search1.ico") FileInstall("X:\nix\grep.exe", @TempDir & "\grep.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\sed.exe", @TempDir & "\sed.exe") FileInstall("X:\nix\libiconv2.dll", @TempDir & "\libiconv2.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\libintl3.dll", @TempDir & "\libintl3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\pcre3.dll", @TempDir & "\pcre3.dll") FileInstall("X:\nix\regex2.dll", @TempDir & "\regex2.dll") #ce ; $sDefFs = @ScriptDir & "\.txt" $sOut = "" $iX = 20 $iY = 20 $hgGGrep = GUICreate("Grep for Windows: Simple TeXT search", 600, 600) GUISetState(@SW_SHOW, $hgGGrep) ; Obtain value of control: GUICtrlRead() ; left, top, width, height ; $iX, $iY, $iX + n, $iY + m ; $hgIco = GUICtrlCreateIcon(@ScriptDir & "\search1.ico", $iX, $iY, 10) $hgGL0 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Enter a string or regular expression" & @CRLF & "(space between words means ""OR"")", $iX + 50, $iY, 250, 30) $hgSch = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 50, $iY + 40, 325, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgXyZ = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("cAsE-sEnSiTiVe", $iX + 50, $iY + 65, -1, -1) $hgExe = GUICtrlCreateButton("Search", 400, $iY + 40, -1, -1) $hgFL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 100, 250, 20) $hgFs1 = GUICtrlCreateInput("d:\path\*.txt", $iX + 110, $iY + 100, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL2 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 120, 250, 20) $hgFs2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 120, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, -1) $hgFL3 = GUICtrlCreateLabel("Filespec", $iX + 50, $iY + 140, 250, 20) $hgFs3 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", $iX + 110, $iY + 140, 250, 20, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,-1) $hgOut = GUICtrlCreateEdit($sOut, 25, 190, 550, 400, $ES_LEFT, -1) GUICtrlSetState($hgSch, $GUI_FOCUS) While 1 $nMsg = GUIGetMsg() Switch $nMsg Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE Exit EndSwitch WEnd ; #cs _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgSch)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs1)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs2)) _WinAPI_SetFocus(ControlGetHandle("Grep for Windows", "", $hgFs3)) #ce Thanks in advance.
