Hi guys,

Ive written a script using IE.au3, its actually my first script using these wonderfull UDF's so im alittle lost as to solve the error im getting. The script ive written simply logs into a webpage that has a log in prompt.

Heres the bones of my script.

#include <IE.au3>

$username = "username" Spassword = "password"$oIE = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://mywebpage.com/") ; get pointers to the login form and username and password fields$o_form = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "login")$o_login = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "user")$o_password = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($o_form, "password") ;Set field values and submit the form _IEFormElementSetValue($o_login, $username) _IEFormElementSetValue($o_password, $password) _IEFormSubmit($o_form)

Exit

Heres the error im getting.

Line 709 (File "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\Include\IE.au3"):

Until ($oTemp.document.readyState = "complete" Or$oTemp.document.readyState = 4)

Untill ($oTemp.document.readyState ^ ERROR Error: The requested action with this object has failed. This error dosent occur everytime I run my script, it seems to only occur on random excutions. What is the cause of this error? and any suggestions on how I can go about fixing it? Nova.

Yes. I'll post T2.0-2 in a few minutes... I am expecting it to squash this problem once and for all. The _IEFormSubmit calles _IELoadWait for you and there is a small timing window there this error can occur. I've finally bit the bullet and implemented a scheme for COM error handling in IE.au3 that will make IE.au3 resilient to these sorts of transient issues. Dale P.S. Valuator is correct that most of the situations that could experience this error were addressed in previous versions of T2.0... T2.0-2 closes this last hole.

Is it the link I posted above?

Ok ive downloaded what I believe is the newest version of IE.au3 version T2.0-2 from http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...25629&hl=IE.au3 and now when I run the script I posted abov I get this error as soon as the script is run everytime.

It appears I've injected a problem into T2.0-2, but I cannot reproduce it.

Can you post a small snippet of code that will reproduce this problem?

thanks,

Dale
