Google TV Script?

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I was wanting to write a Script, that would check for the google tv easter egg. I know that there is a fantastic IE.au3 UDF, but some concepts of this script need clarification. What needs to be done is, I need to be able to login into gmail(which I can do) Then check for a mouse over image(which I can't do) if the image is a mouse over( aka the image changes when mouse over) then exit script, if it does not, log out, then repeat. Any ideas on that tricking mouse over image check?

Thanks!

This is what I have so far.

;Script to get Google TV

#include <H:\AutoIt\plugins\IE.au3>

Run('C:\program files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE')

While not ProcessExists('IEXPLORE.exe')
    Sleep(1000)
WEnd

Sleep(1000)
ControlClick('Kweb - Microsoft Internet Explorer','','Edit1')
Send('{BACKSPACE}')
ControlSend('Kweb - Microsoft Internet Explorer','','Edit1','gmail.com')
Send('{ENTER}')
Sleep(3000)

WinWaitActive('Welcome to Gmail - Microsoft Internet Explorer')
ControlClick('Welcome to Gmail - Microsoft Internet Explorer','',

arggg....just looked at IE.au3, there is easier way...here it is now....

;Script to get Google TV

#include <H:\AutoIt\plugins\IE.au3>


_IECreate('www.gmail.com')

WinWaitActive('Welcome to Gmail - Microsoft Internet Explorer')
;ControlClick('Welcome to Gmail - Microsoft Internet Explorer','',

The last part is what I am having an issue with right now. I use the window info tool, and the username and password boxes don't have a classID, nothing like that. can't figure out how to type my username and pass in there in the script.

This is what I have now. It is all manual, at this point, a message box pops up asking if the mouse over image changed. Is there anyway to automate that part? It is very static I know, but I just need it to work on my pc. I will then fine tune it later. How do I detect if a mouse over takes place on this page??? ahhH!

;Script to get Google TV

#include <H:\AutoIt\plugins\IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate('www.gmail.com')

$usrname = 'autoitpwns@gmail.com'
$pss = 'irlike2pwn'

$Msg = 7
$Attempt = 1

While $Msg == 7
WinWaitActive('Welcome to Gmail - Microsoft Internet Explorer')
WinSetState('Welcome to Gmail - Microsoft Internet Explorer','',@SW_MAXIMIZE)
$fGoogleTV = FileOpen('H:\AutoIt\GoogleTv.txt',1)
FileWriteLine($fGoogleTV,'Google Login Attempt  ' & $Attempt & @CRLF)
FileClose($fGoogleTV)
$Attempt += 1
Send($usrname)
Send('{TAB}')
Send($pss)
Send('{TAB 2}')
Send('{SPACE}')
AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
    While StatusbarGetText("Internet Explorer") <> "Done"
        Sleep(150)
    WEnd
    While StatusbarGetText("Internet Explorer") <> "Done"
        Sleep(150)
    WEnd
Sleep(2000)

MouseMove(76,152)
Sleep(500)
$Msg = MsgBox(4,'','Did the mouseover image appear?')
    If $Msg = 6 Then
        Exit
    Else
    MouseMove(1237,118)
    MouseClick('left')
    Sleep(2000)
EndIf
WEnd
Sleep(500)

Well I can't help you out with the script, However I might make your journey a little less bumpy.

http://www.fatalfarm.com/main.html

Unfortunately, (Even though this would have been fantastic) this google tv thing is a HOAX. If you watch the youtube video of 'HOW-TO' you'll notice at the end a credit to FatalFarm. FatalFarm is a group of film makers who make parody intros for well-known TV shows (ie. ALF, CHEERS, BAYWATCH...etc). This is also one of their little movie projects.

The idea for the script could be useful in other situations, but it will not work 'EVER' for the purpose you are intending for.

Sorry I was just as hyped about this as the next guy and even tried it manually about 10x's **grr to me** I normally don't fall for this sorta thing but the videos were well done and believable (I guess a good mix for a excellent HOAX)

Let me see if I can find the link you'll love it. Ahh! here we go.
