Copy a file into the IE's temp internet cache

Recommended Posts

Another noobe question.

Is it possible to write an AutoIt script that can copy a local file, say an HTML file, into IE's Temporary Cache so that it looks as if it had been downloaded and does not need to be rechecked nor updated from the web on the next call?

The goal is to copy local content into the cache so when called it avoids some security issues of local/remote content mixes.

So, the script gets a request fro a file, copies the file to the cache and sets the appropriate file parameters. Then tells the caller to go get it now.

Any possibility of some code to do such?

I suggest you're going to need to start by making yourself an expert on how IE or FireFox handles file cache management. The basic questions are not AutoIt questions so you are not likely to find such specific knowledge here.

For IE I'd suggest Microsoft's managed newsgroups, MSDN nd Google searches.


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

MSDN docs: InternetExplorer Object, Document Object, Overviews and Tutorials, DHTML Objects, DHTML Events, WinHttpRequest, XmlHttpRequest, Cross-Frame Scripting, Office object model

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?
