Newbie: ie.au3 frame problem

Recommended Posts

Hello,

This is the first time I'm using AutoIt. I'm running the latest Beta version.

My problem is that the _IEFrameGetObjByName command gives following error:

Line 769 (File "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\Include\IE.au3):

If $obeject.document.tagname = "FRAMESET" then If$object.document^ERROR

Error: The requested action with this object has failed.

My script I wrote:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("http://www.jura.be/fs_main.jsp") WinSetState("", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) _IELoadWait($oIE)

$oFrame = _IEFrameGetObjByName($oIE, "fMain")

And here the HTML source:

There is something wrong with your IE.au3 file, because line 769 should read like this:

If $o_object.document.body.tagName = "FRAMESET" Then Share this post Link to post Share on other sites Sorry, Made a little error when typing the error message: Line 769 (File "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\Include\IE.au3): If$object.document.body.tagName = "FRAMESET" then

Sorry,

Made a little error when typing the error message:

I tried your sample code and received no error. Can you reproduce this? If so, there really may be something wrong with your IE.au3 file.

Also, if you had to type in the error message I would assume you are not using SciTe... I highly recommend it.

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?

I just reinstalled Autoit and the Beta version. This are the names of the setup files:

-autoit-v3-setup.exe

-autoit-v3.1.1.130-beta-Setup.exe

And I installed SciTe.

But I still get the same error. And I'm using the ie.au3 file provided with the beta version.

Now I also installed everything on my own laptop and there it's working fine.

Very strange. Is there any other program that can interfear with AutoIt scripts?

You can verify the version of IE.au3 used with this function:
_IE_VersionInfo()

If you are using SciTe, this will display the version number to the console, otherwise you can examine the values of the array returned (see the helpfile). It should be T2.0-5 or higher.

The only time I've seen strange behaviour like you describe on one machine is when there was a zombir iexplore.exe process running on the system. Suggest you get out of all browsers, look at the process list and kill any iexplore.exe that remains. Failing that, try again after a reboot. Failing that, try to figure out what is different between your machines.
