Custom Inet Browser

Recommended Posts

well, as you can read from the title, im building a custom internet explorer browser basically ( my first try at using COM objects, with or without autoit ^^ ) and i've got a pretty good start. But i have run into a problem that i can not seem to shake out and fix with $var.GoForward and $var.GoBack =( if the 'user' hasnt made a history (? array ?) then when they click the "back / forward" button i get this:

C:Documents and SettingsHP_Owner.MAINDesktopBrowseIt.au3 (74) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.: 
$InetExplorer.GoBack^ ERROR

$InetExplorer obviously being the InetExplorer OBJ i created, and GoBack being the COM event initiated by the user pushing the "Back" button...

so i guess my question is this, can anyone point me in the right direction of solving the fatal error(s), i've searched the forums but i don't really know what "keywords" to use =P and with this specific COM the help file is of no help =(

anyways if ya can or can't thanx for atleast reading =)

-edit- Typos / added .au3 file

Take a look at the example for _IECreateEmbedded which adds a COM error handler to handle exactly this issue.


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

Alternative to _IECreateEmbedded? better: _IECreatePseudoEmbedded  Better Better?

IE.au3 issues with Vista - Workarounds

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?

wow nice thanx daleholm :whistle:

looks like im trying to 're-invent' the wheel so to speak on alot of this ( it could be done with those _IE*Function calls in ie.au3 but im doing this more for the COM experience than the browser stuff xD
