ie.au3

10 posts in this topic

i think i have finally lost it. I can't find IE.au3 anywhere. I thought maybe it came with AutoIT but i dont see it and i dont even get anything useful when i google it. Is there a place i can download it and use it from? thanks.

Ok i got it and the beta and im workign with it so thanks for that part. however, now i have a question again. I have a program ( the Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit), which actually runs as an Executable but all it really is is a bunch of web pages that open (which cannot be run individually). Is there a way to use ie.au3 to reference the currently open window instead of launching a window with a page in it. I want to click on links in the setup program but cant find a way to reference the window.

Excellent. thanks.

You'll want to use _IEAttach

p.s. ObjGet is part of the solution, but requires iterating through a collection of ShellWindows to find what you need. _IEAttach also uses other methods...


Free Internet Tools: DebugBar, AutoIt IE Builder, HTTP UDF, MODIV2, IE Developer Toolbar, IEDocMon, Fiddler, HTML Validator, WGet, curl

I was wondering if that woudl be it. But now i seem to be up against something mroe difficult as i feared. As i mentioned im trying to automate the setup for Microsoft Shared Computer Toolkit. The GUI they provide loads as a .hta file. However, _IEAttach always has some problem with finding this once its open, let alone clicking one of the 4 buttons that are in there.

When i check the code below i see it does have "Internet Explorer_Server1" there so i dont understand why i cant interface with it. thanks again.

Try this:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach ("Profile Manager", "embedded")

Try this:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach ("Profile Manager", "embedded")
Worked like a charm. It attached and click on the button. But now, and i feel useless at this point cause i can't seem to get this to play nice with microsoft coding, i cant do the next window. Here's the code, its all convoluded where the code comes from for the page itself because its a jumble of .vbs and .hta files, but i cant even get the autoit to recognize it. It opens, and the _IEattach wont respond until i close it and reopen it for some reason.

I have tried using _IEDocReadHTML and various "getcollection" functions but they all return 0 value for the little page.

Again, thanks for the help. I hate to ask so many questions, but its just seems this application wants to hate me every step of the way. I've even used the ScriptWriter to see what im missing, but it cant automate this window either. Not even a simple {ENTER} when the window pops up and is in focus.

Try this:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach ("Profile Manager", "embedded")

;;; click your button

$oIE2 = _IEAttach ("User Accounts", "embedded")

;;; whatever you need to do with this window
