Set User Agent in winhttprequest - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to change the user agent of a winhttprequest request.

HttpsSetUserAgent("my user agent")

has not changed it.

$oHTTP.SetRequestHeader ("user-agent", "my user agent")

did not work either. The user agent always remained

Maybe a typo ? HttpSetUserAgent  NOT HttpsSetUserAgent

EDIT :

Set a Com Errorhandler at the top of your script, e.g.

[...]
Global $oErrorHandler = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "_MyCOMErrFunc") ; COM Errorhandler

[...]

Func _MyCOMErrFunc($oError)
    ConsoleWrite(@ScriptName & " (" & $oError.scriptline & ") : ==> COM Error intercepted !" & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.number is: " & @TAB & @TAB & "0x" & Hex($oError.number) & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.windescription:" & @TAB & $oError.windescription & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.description is: " & @TAB & $oError.description & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.source is: " & @TAB & @TAB & $oError.source & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.helpfile is: " & @TAB & $oError.helpfile & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.helpcontext is: " & @TAB & $oError.helpcontext & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.lastdllerror is: " & @TAB & $oError.lastdllerror & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.scriptline is: " & @TAB & $oError.scriptline & @CRLF & _
            @TAB & "err.retcode is: " & @TAB & "0x" & Hex($oError.retcode) & @CRLF & @CRLF)
EndFunc   ;==>_MyCOMErrFunc

Should it automatically call this function in the event of an error? I believe HttpSetUserAgent() only sets the user agent for InetRead() and InetGet().

Here is my code:

$oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
HttpSetUserAgent("Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/91.0.4472.77 Safari/537.36 Edg/91.0.864.41")
$oHTTP.Open("GET", "https://xgamerguide.sytes.net/test", False)
$oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("content-type", "text/html;charset=UTF-8")
$oHTTP.Send()

Here is what arrives on the server:

Quote

XX.XX.XX.XXX - - [06/Jun/2021:13:13:19 +0100] "GET /test HTTP/1.1" 404 169 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; Win32; WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5)"

If that's what you believe, then why did you show an example using HttpSetUserAgent() that is not also using InetRead() or InetGet()?  :huh2:

Why didn't you show an example of your script that used the .SetRequestHeader method?  The syntax of the .SetRequestHeader method, that you used above, is correct and should have worked if the rest of the script was okay.

 

A simple search of this forum for "HttpSetUserAgent" OR ".SetRequestHeader" would have yielded NUMEROUS working examples.  None of those working examples would have shown the HttpSetUserAgent() function being used with a HTTP request COM object.  By the same token, none of those working examples would have shown the .SetRequestHeader method being used with a Inet* function.  So how exactly did you come up with your example script that you posted and the "yet unseen" example script that "did not work" using the .SetRequestHeader method?
