IE-Builder not responding

16 posts in this topic

I am using the latest AutoIT and SciTE.

I can run IE-Library4.au3 under SciTE using Alt+F5

I can open web page and load source in the builder

But once I do a HTML Element or Anchor Tag. or Image Tag.... it will display the correct content but it will freeze and not responding to anything afterward

This is running under Win2k

Anything I should check?

I am also wondering if I installed the builder correctly because I do not have all the graphic icons in Builder displayed correctly; of the 3 top right hand side icons, I only have the Go icon displayed..the other two are blank; of the 6 icons on the top left, I only have the top 3 displayed correctly, the lower 3 icons are blank.

I extracted the zip file and copy the folder under C:\Program FIles\AutoIT3\IE-Builder

is it right?

Thanks.

i had a problem with that after the last beta update... however that was fixed... are you sure you have the latest IE.au3 builder????

2

you didn't copy it correctly because all of the icons are there

i just downloaded it to my desktop, ran it, and everything was fine... including the icons for the buttons ( win Xp )

try downloading it again

Wow! you are so fast! Thank you Valuater!

yes, you are right, I was using the version 4, the new version 5 does not freeze.

Sill have problem with icons:

I downloaded the zip file from the link in this post:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st=0&p=137835

the zip file only includes 4 bmp files, IE-Library5.au3 and Examples.txt so unless the builder uses icons from some other shared directory, there are only 4 to use.

I know there are discussions on many threads on using the builder, please advise on the best thread or doc to get started.

Thank you !

Hmm, normally Valuator would tell you this wasn't the support forum... :o:geek:

1) Icons:

I did that... the program run and it displayed many icons (from my desktop?).

I tried to get it to check the IE-builder but which file I should have it checked?

the tool only look for *.exe *.dll *.ocx...file type

2) Other UI differences

Compare my IE-Builder UI display with the one on http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...topic=19368&hl=

I also noticed that my first button is called "IE-Builder" and yours called "View Builder", mine has IE.au3 syntax..and other differences...

Here is my environment:

SciTE Version 1.67 Jan 13 2006 22:22:59

AutoIT version: 3.1.1.0

Beta: 3.1.1.107

IE-Library5.au3 creted February 18 2006 11:15:22 pm

IE.au3 created Feburary 12, 2006 3:10:46 pm

Are the IE-Library5.au3 and IE.au3 the latest? if not, where can I get the latest? thanks.

Just do the same thing..... thats all you need to run IE.au3 Builder

Press Tools > Beta Run

if the icons worked on that the icons should work on IE Builder

( you have the correct version BTW )

see attached UI snapshot.

I have 4 bmp files in IE-Builder\Images

back.bmp

forward.bmp

refresh.bmp and

go.bmp

they correspond to the 4 icons displayed correctly. Where are the other icon bmp located?

Also I do not have any things in the drop down box for core functions, frame functions...is this correct?

Thanks a lot, Valuater!

You have all the pics... the reason i had you run the example above from the help file was to make sure that the "Built-in" icons are available... the icons that are missing from your picture are from that same source thats already on your computer...

example.. from my script

; set button pics

GUICtrlSetImage($Favr, "shell32.dll", 208)

... this is the same "star" that should show up in the help example above #208 from the shell32.dll

i also noted that your picture does not show the tiltle of the current view correctly... the "Builder View" that is underlined is enlargened

i dont know... maybe you have an older video driver... i dont think i can help you with any of that

really sorry... and thanks for trying so hard... maybe someone else with your type of system can see this post and help you more

anyways..... good luck

Thank you very much Valuater for your help.

Now I know why you asked me to run the example program. I run the progamm again and look at the icons more carefully, I only have 107 icons..no wonder 208 will be a blank. Some of my files are wrong or out of date?

After some sleep, I think I figured out that the missing icons is due to the difference between Win2k and XP.

IE-Builder uses XP based system resources which is different from Win2k.

On a different subject: Anyone knows why my function dropdown box is empty? e.g. for Core Functions, Frame functions,... do I need to put Ie.au3 in a specific place for IE-Builder to pickup the info? or again due to OS difference?

Thanks for any advices.

Yes. it is a Win2k specific problem for IE-Builder..

I install all on a XP system and now everything look good.

Thanks very much for helping out a newbie.
