# Ie.au3 Won't Ienavigate

## 8 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm completely new to AutoIt, so I was trying some of Dale's scripts, but only got as far as line 2 before hitting a problem (not good)

My whole script is...

; Script Start - Add your code below here

#include <ie.au3>

$o_IE = _IECreate () _IENavigate($o_IE, "http://www.google.com")

Exit

but when I run this, I get....

>"C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\SciTE\CompileAU3\CompileAU3.exe" /run /beta /ErrorStdOut /in "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\firstgo.au3" /autoit3dir "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta" /UserParams

>Running AU3Check (1.54.1.1) params: from:C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta

+>AU3Check ended.rc:0

>Running:(3.1.1.113):C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\autoit3.exe "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\firstgo.au3"

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\Include\ie.au3 (246) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

$o_object.navigate ($s_url)

$o_object.navigate ($s_url)^ ERROR

+>AutoIT3.exe ended.rc:0

>Exit code: 0 Time: 1.212

A new IE window opens, but just sits there with 'about:blank' and thats it.

Why is this. I'm sure it's blindingly obvious to anyone with a bit of experience, but I just can't see it.

Please help

It works fine for me, make sure you're using the beta version of autoit, and au2exe. You can do this quite simply with the AWESOME tutorial Valuater has put together for autoit newbies.

come on... he's running 3.1.1.113 as the output shows.

I think its best to put in a com error handler as defined in the Beta helpfile which will tell you what the COM error is....

There have been several posts on subjects like this as well ....

Hi,

he is using the beta as you can see here

>Running:(3.1.1.113):C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\autoit3.exe "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\firstgo.au3"

But, it works for me, too.

So long,

There has been a very obscure timing issue that can cause this trouble. At least it WAS obscure -- for some reason there have been a lot more reports of it recently. I have posted some test code here that I am hopeful will address the issue once and for all. So far I have not gotten any feedback on it however, so if you would please try the modified functions and report your results.

Thanks,

Dale

Edit: I shouldn't say I haven't gotten ANY feedback... I have a little but not enough to feel confident since I cannot reproduce this myself.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Dale - that's done the trick. Absolutely fantastic, I can't wait to get into this some more and I think ie.au3 will be really useful. Much appreciated.

Cheers
