_iebodyreadhtml Search?

4 posts in this topic

im trying to search for a specific line of text in a result of _IEBodyReadHTML.. trying to figure out how to search for the text.

I have been searching the functions list on autoit website and the only thing ive come up with is WinGetText but i am unsure if this function will get text out of a variable or just out of a windows window.

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance.

If you want just the text you can look at the source for _IEBodyReadHTML and create your own function that uses .innerText instead of .innerHTML

thanks for the tip, the problem is i need the script to search for a specific string of text once it has read it and that is what i dont know how to do.

im pretty much an autoit noob :)

well i did some playing around and came up with this.

$html = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)
$var = StringInStr( $html, "the SunTrust web site will be temporarily unavailable")
;Msgbox(0,"Value of", $var)
If $var = 177 Then
    _IEQuit($oIE)
    BlockInput(0)
    MsgBox (4096, "SunTrust", "Suntrust Website Currently Down for maintenance", 20 )
    Exit
Else
EndIf

Func _IEBodyReadText($o_object)
    If IsObj($o_object.document) Then
        SetError(0)
        Return $o_object.document.body.innerText
    Else
        SetError(1)
        Return 0
    EndIf
EndFunc

prob not the best way to do it but it works. any tips for future use would be great.

thanks again dale for the text tip.

StringInStr is probably the best function to use -- as you have.

I'd be concerned about using a specific character position though as the slightest page change can break that. StringInStr will return 0 if it does not find the substring (and 0 evaluates as False, any other value to True) so you could do:

If $var Then

Also, if you are looking for a specific substring like that you shouldn't need that custom _IEBodyReadText function -- _IEBodyReadHTML should be usable just as well.
