Downloading using Internet Explorer - Not InetGet

5 posts in this topic

Hey,

My current project is a very special file downloader. It searches a forum for data i put in an array, and loads the topic.

After that it searches the attachment, and from there i'm stuck!

Because: The forum requires a login. Using _IE*** functions, i logged myself into the forum but i cannot download the file with InetGet. I really need to download it with Internet Explorer, and i don't want to resort to manipulating the "File Download" prompt from IE.

So, does anyone have a suggestion how to handle this? I'd really appreciate your input!

Thanks!

Due to security restrictions, IE does not allow automated file downloads through script. You'll need to manipulate the file dialog with SEND or ControlSend commands.

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?
