Before Broadcom took over Symantec, I was able to use the following code as the base to scrape daily definition downloads from the web. Since the pages were moved over to the Broadcom web servers, I get a page full of what I believe may be JavaScript instead of the fully rendered page that lies behind it. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can read the full rendered webpage using AutoIt?

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE_DEFS = _IECreate("https://www.broadcom.com/support/security-center/definitions/download/detail?gid=sep14", 0, 0, 1, 1)
$sString_DEFS = _IEBodyReadHTML($oIE_DEFS)
MsgBox(0, "https://www.broadcom.com/support/security-center/definitions/download/detail?gid=sep14", $sString_DEFS)

The above code will show the JavaScript, but if you go to the URL in a browser that has JavaScript enabled, you will see the fully rendered page that I would like to access. I hope my question makes sense, and I would appreciate any suggestions to get this working again.

All the best,

scroll the page

and after find a link use stringregrexp and  match all href

or  i remember  the  big company have also FTP anonymous  for download tools or other , try to look if symantec  have  , google is our friend , bye

When I ran my example, I thought I saw the rendered HTML but I appear to have been mistaken.  So I removed it.

Removed example since it was incorrect.

All the best,

When I am writing a script to scrape a website, there are several ways that I go about it:

1) If the html is fully available, then that is the easiest way to go about it

2) I download the file manually in the browser, and then I copy the download link from the browser itself and see if the actual download links have a commonality that would allow me to download the files I need without actually knowing pulling the download link from the web page:



3) In the even that the file download link doesn't directly reference the file, like in the case of the file at this url: https://www.sordum.org/files/downloads.php?easy-context-menu

then I use the wget tool and have it handle the redirections and force the file download into the file format that I know it is supposed to be in.  So, using the above example, I know the file is supposed to be a zip file, so I would run the wget command 
wget https://www.sordum.org/files/downloads.php?easy-context-menu -O"Path\to\save\file\file.zip"

Oh, also, wget is native to linux operating systems, but there is a very decent windows port of wget available here

Thanks for the reply, @MattHiggs. This is something new to try as I have been unable to get at the files any other way. I haven't played with WGET much, but I'll give it a shot. Manually downloading a handful of different definition sets, every night, from this site: https://www.broadcom.com/support/security-center/definitions/download/detail?gid=sep14
is getting kinda old.

Again, thanks for your reply, I was at an impasse.


P.S. Part of the issue is also that the download files names change a few times a day...which is why I need to scrape the fully rendered Javascript (HTML) page each time.

      This project has been discontinued!
      Here a small tool I wrote to update my Sysinternal tools collection without the need to download always the whole package or visiting the site to check for updates. I know that there are several tools available (also some tools written in AutoIt) but here another one for the collection. It was good exercise for me to code it.
      Some files from the live web site cannot be downloaded although they are visible!
      Here the download link of the source code only: AutoIt Sysinternal Tools Synchronizer v0.99.6 build 2020-09-23 beta.7z  (1557 downloads previously)
      -=> Requires AutoIt version or higher / tested on Win8.1 real machine and some VMs: Win7 / Vista / Win10
      Compiled exe only: @MediaFire
      Just select the Sysinternal Tools folder or create one and press the synchronize button to download the selected items. Click on AutoIt label (near to left upper corner) to open menu.
      Special thanks to LarsJ, Melba23 and mesale0077 for their help. 
      I've still some ideas to implement which are more gimmick related, so it is not finished yet...
      If you want to add your language please check out #Region Language. Thanks. 
      Please report any bug or if you have any suggestions.
      The language of the tool tip from each of the executable in the left list view were automatically created using Google translator and weren't checked for correctness.

      Making the integration between AutoIt and the BrowserControl easier may facilitate the development of interesting programs. Just think of all those (fantastic) libraries and frameworks available for javascript that could be integrated and exploited in an AutoIt program. For example, to graphically present the results of an AutoIt processing in the GUI, ... and many other possibilities. Providing the basic functions to implement this synergistic interaction is the purpose of this post (if for no other reason, just even to collect some tests done over time here and there, so as not to leave them scattered and easily find them in just one place)
      In this UDF there are only a few functions (or better if called wrappers), but I hope to add more as I go and, even better, to receive suggestions and advice on new features and techniques to improve and expand it.
      _WebBrowser_GUICtrlCreate Create an Internet Explorer 'Browser Control' _WebBrowser_SetHTML Set a new HTML listing in the BrowserControl _WebBrowser_CSS_Inject Creates into the html document a CSS node element with embedded the passed CSS _WebBrowser_JS_Inject Creates into the html document a javascript node element with embedded the passed javascript _WebBrowser_JS_Eval Evaluates a passed string as JavaScript code and executes it _WebBrowser_JS_setTimeout Calls a javascript function or executes a javascript code snippet [option after a specified delay] _WebBrowser_JS_ElementGetRef Retrieves a reference to an element suitable to be used from AutoIt _WebBrowser_ExecuteDotNotation Get a reference to an object's child member or the value of a property, by means of a dotted path _WebBrowser_BasicHTML Returns a basic html page listing (a little enhanced than about:blank) The three examples provided in the attached ziped file are a bit 'improvised' and do not take advantage of all the possibilities offered by the underlying javascript libraries used. They are just three "hello world" scripts to test the ABC of the interaction with the "BrowserControl".
      (ToDo: Interaction with javascript custom events)
      Bug reports, creative criticisms and suggestions (particularly regarding the interaction with javascript custom events) are welcome
      I hope you can have fun with the Browser Control
    • By Chimp
      This is a little experiment that makes use of a "Browser Control" embedded in a GUI in order to be able to use AutoIt, HTML, JavaScript and CSS all together.
      This little toy will only work on systems with IE11.
      The purpose is to drag all the names of the scientists & drop on the right ones. (among scientists it has also infiltrated an intruder). I hope you find it entertaining.
      I've posted it here in the hope to have some suggestions on how to improve it all (I mean the interaction between Autoit Javascript html and css). Thanks

      I'm working on an interface and I have a problem with zoom management. In desktop mode it works and in android cell mode it seems to work fine too. However, on a Windows tablet, it seems to have a problem ... Basically what I'm trying to do is display a modal in bootstrap 4. But when on the tablet I zoom, my modal s really big and out of my screen. On the android mobile, I remove the zoom before displaying the modal but on the Windows tablet I am unable to reproduce the same behavior.
      My toggle function to reset zoom before display modal  ( Yeah it maybe sketches but I'm not find other solutions)
      function resetZooming() { if (zoomOut) { $('meta[name=viewport]').attr('content', 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, maximum-scale=1'); setTimeout(resetZooming, 1000); zoomOut = false; }else{ $('meta[name=viewport]').attr('content', 'width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0'); zoomOut = true; } } And I call this function under my event
      $("#modalCreationForm").modal("show"); resetZooming();  
      If you have any ideas
      Thank you

      The DOM allows to do anything with elements and their contents, but first we need to reach the corresponding DOM object, get it into a variable, and then we are able to modify it. *
      Well, this little tool (although it is not very nice aesthetically) allows you to get visually a "selector" usable to reference DOM objects.
      Once you have the "selector" of an element you can pass it to the javascript querySelector() function that will return a reference to that element.
      To use this tool you have to:
      1) open the web page you want to inspect into IE browser
      2) run this script (if it find more instances of IE running, it allows you to chose one)
      3) move the mouse over the browser. The "selector" of the element below the pointer is catched automatically while hovering. To copy the selector in the clipboard just right click on the element.
      As you can see, while hovering, the element pointed by the mouse is highlighted with a thin red dotted frame to allow you to better "take aim"
      when the selector is copied to the clipboard a little acoustic signal is emitted as a confirm, then you can paste it in your listing where you need it.

      suppose we want automate the login to the AutoIt site with our username and password.
      I've already prepared a very simple "template" where are missing some important parts without which the script can't work. Missing parts are the references to the elements of the AutoIt web page that we have to manage by our script.
      well, here is where the tool I have just posted here above comes to our help.
      follow this steps:
      1) in IE open the AutoIt site at the forum page (https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/)
      2) run the above tool (select the IE instance and/or bring it to front if needed)
      3) when the script is "ready", move the mouse over the "Existing user? Sign In" string and right click the mouse button. Doing so the "selector" of that element is copied to the clipboard. Now we can paste it in our AutoLogIt.au3 script as value of the $sSignIn variable.
      4) now click on the "Existing user? Sign In"  to open the "Sig In" session from where we will copy selectors of each of the 2 input box Username and Password, in the same way as we have already done in step 3, and paste those selectors to the $sInputUserId and $sInputPasswd variables respectively.
      5) do the same for the "Sign In" Button and paste it's selector to the $sSignInButn variable
      6) of course also fill the $sMyUserId and $sMyPasswd variables with your data.
      That's It. Run the AutoLogIt script and it should Log you on automatically to the forum.
      #include <ie.au3> $sMyUserId = "" ; <-- your userid here $sMyPasswd = "" ; <-- your password here ; set selectors here $sSignIn = "" ; <-- SigIn element selector here $sInputUserId = "" ; <-- UserId input selector here $sInputPasswd = "" ; <-- Password input selector here $sSignInButn = "" ; <-- Sig In button selector here $oIE = _IECreate("https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/") ; here is how to use the QuerySelector javascript function $hDOM_Element = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sSignIn) ; get the "sign in" link element ; perform a click action on the above element $hDOM_Element.click() ; or _IEAction($hDOM_Element, "click") as well ; fill the username input $hDOM_Element = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sInputUserId) $hDOM_Element.value = $sMyUserId ; fill the password input $hDOM_Element = $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sInputPasswd) $hDOM_Element.value = $sMyPasswd ; .... or also using the dot notation directly .... $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sSignInButn).click() Sleep(5000) ; this should logout $sMenu = "body > div:nth-of-type(2) > header > div > ul > li:nth-of-type(6) > a:nth-of-type(2)" $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sMenu).click() $sLogOut = "body > ul > li:nth-of-type(9) > a" $oIE.document.QuerySelector($sLogOut).click()
