Help With Internet Explorer Automation Udf Library

Recommended Posts


I need to make a script to extract from this site :


Some infos (temp,humd,..) every day at 8 o'clock.

I ´m using UDF library for Internet explorer. I think, i can use it to perform this action.

But it´s very dificult to find the ID´s or name of the html elements who hold the information.

i use this :

_IETableGetObjByIndex($oIE, 4)

But this code extract to me a long string with all the sub-strings inside the weather table. Maybe i can make a parser to have the information but i want to know if he exist an order way.

Thanks for your help.

Take a look at this script that I made a while back. It should at least get you headed in the right direction. If I get a break from all the troubles we are having from lightning I'll see what I can put together.

Edit: Reread your post.

Thanks for your response.

How can you know, than the informations are stok into the table number 2 ?

i need to know where to find my information.

$oTable2 = _IETableGetObjByIndex($oIE, 4)

$aWeather = _IETableWriteToArray($oTable2)

MsgBox(4096, "Test",$aWeather[0][0] ,100)

Whith this code i view all the content of the weather table at the cell [0][0] of the 2D array.

there is an other array into this cell ?

First off with the code you provided you are actually reading the fifth table.


; This reads the first table
$oTable = _IETableGetObjByIndex($oIE, 0)
; This reads the second table
$oTable = _IETableGetObjByIndex($oIE, 1)

I haven't had much time, but this is what I've come up with so far.

#include <IE.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#Include <GuiListView.au3>
#include <GuiStatusBar.au3>

$Form1 = GUICreate("Prónostico horario", 620, 440, 200, 125)
$List1 = GUICtrlCreateListView("Characteristics|Numbers", 8, 50, 600, 350)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("GO", 240, 20, 33, 21, $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON)
$StatusBar1 = _GuiCtrlStatusBarCreate ($Form1, 620, "", $SBT_TOOLTIPS)
_GuiCtrlStatusBarSetMinHeight ($StatusBar1, 35)
_GuiCtrlStatusBarSetText ($StatusBar1, ' Click the "GO" button.')
$Progress1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress(410, 412, 200, 20)
GUICtrlSetResizing($Progress1, $GUI_DOCKSTATEBAR)
GUICtrlSetState($Progress1, $GUI_HIDE)
While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $msg = $Button1
            _GUICtrlListViewDeleteAllItems ($List1)
            _GuiCtrlStatusBarSetText ($StatusBar1, ' Gathering data, Please Wait....')
                GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, 0)
                GUICtrlSetState($Progress1, $GUI_SHOW)              
                If @error Then
                    MsgBox(0, "Connection Error!", "There was a problem connecting to the internet.")
                    _GuiCtrlStatusBarSetText ($StatusBar1, ' Check you internet connection and try again.')
                $oIE = _IECreate ()
                GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, 10)
                _IENavigate ($oIE, "http://espanol.weather.com/weather/hourbyhour/MXCL0013")
                GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, 20)
            ; Get a reference to the eighth table on the webpage (where the data is stored)
                $oTable = _IETableGetObjByIndex ($oIE, 7)
                GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, 70)
            ; Read the table cells into a 2-D array
                $aProfile = _IETableWriteToArray ($oTable)
                GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, 80)
                _IEQuit ($oIE)
                GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, 90)
            ; Write the array contents to the listview
                For $i = 0 To UBound($aProfile, 2) - 1
                    If $aProfile[0][$i] == 0 Then ContinueLoop
                    Local $lv_item = GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($aProfile[0][$i] & "|" & $aProfile[1][$i], $List1)
                GUICtrlSetData($Progress1, 100)
                _GUICtrlListViewSetColumnWidth ($List1, 0, $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE)
                _GUICtrlListViewSetColumnWidth ($List1, 1, $LVSCW_AUTOSIZE_USEHEADER)
                _GuiCtrlStatusBarSetText ($StatusBar1, ' Reading data complete.')
                GUICtrlSetState($Progress1, $GUI_HIDE)
