From Old to New

Recommended Posts

I am undergoing a very large overhaul of updating my old scripts that use IE.au3 (the original) to the new version. But I am having a hard time getting used to the new version, after I got used the older one. Can you help me rewrite this simple script, so that it works with the new version? It would help me get a grasp on things, so when I take on my more elaborate scripts, it won't be soo hard.

Thanks in advance.

Func Edit_Descriptions_Page ($var)
;Edit Description on the IE Page
sleep (2000)
$o_SearchForm = _IEFormGetObjByIndex ($o_IE, 0)
$o_Keywords = _IEFormElementGetObjByIndex ($o_SearchForm, "description" & $var)
Sleep (2000)
Sleep (2000)
$description_text = ClipGet ()
ToolTip ($description_text)
Sleep (1000)
ToolTip ("")

If $description_text = $CIS_AA_Text Then
    _IEFormElementSetValue ($o_Keywords, $CIS_AA_Text_NEW)
Sleep (1000)

If $description_text = $CIS_Text Then
    _IEFormElementSetValue ($o_Keywords, $CIS_Text_NEW)
Sleep (1000)

If $description_text = $FA_Text Then
    _IEFormElementSetValue ($o_Keywords, $FA_Text_NEW)
Sleep (1000)

If $description_text = $DA_Text Then
    _IEFormElementSetValue ($o_Keywords, $DA_Text_NEW)
Sleep (1000)

If $description_text = $SF_Text Then
    Sleep (1000)
    GUI_3_Pick_Categories ()
    If $Ubound_Value > 1 Then 
        $SF_Text_NEW = $SF_Text_NEW_ies
    $Description_New = StringReplace ( $SF_Text_NEW, $xxxxxxxxx, $String_Replacement)
    _IEFormElementSetValue ($o_Keywords, $Description_New)

I don't see anything in that script that would be different from T1 to T2. What troubles are you having?

There are new features in T2 for you to take advantage of, but that causes no update trouble. There are some functions that have been removed and some that have been renamed... these will give you function not found errors in T2.

There is a compatability include file in the basenote for T2.0 that you can use that should allow all your T1 scripts to run without modification in T2, but will give you console warnings when it uses deprecated functionality.


Edit: added more info...

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?
