Help Needed Making IE Web Text Based RPG Bot

7 posts in this topic

I'm new into AutoIt, and have been looking through the IE UDF examples online and in the AutoIt help file, and I haven't been able to find anything as of yet that will quite do what I need. I can login to a site just fine, I just need a way to test for different text on the page, and depending on what it sees navigate to a certain link. For example, a page loads and on the page is the text "You failed." When it sees that I would want it to click the try again link. Then it waits for new page to load and then it goes through the else if nest or loop or whatever to see what matches and if, for instance, "You failed," comes up again it clicks try again, or if "You were successful," comes up after who knows how many times it will click return to clan halls link or whatever. If someone could please help with this it'd be very appreciated. Thanks in advance.

That clicks on text yes, but what if when you click on a link several different variations of things can happen? So I need some sort of code that can bring up a page, wait for it to load, then go through an array or loop or something that says, if it sees apple, click bananna, if it sees grape click orange. That kind of thing. The page is in php so the text isn't constant basically.

That code goes through testing for different variations of text but as far as I could tell it only clicked on one link. Let me try to explain what I need better.

Browser goto url: http://www.dragonmachine.com

login with username and password

Wait for page to load.

If it says on the page, "It is a new day!", click the Continue link.

Wait for new page to load.

Click Forest link.

Wait for new page to load.

Click Search Suicidally link.

Wait for new page to load.

If it sees Until End link clikc it.

Wait for new page to load.

If it doesn't then check to see if it says Search Suicidally again. If it does go back to that line of code and keep doing the Search Suicidally link, wait until new page loads, Until End.

Kind of hard to explain, but hopefully this kind of helps. I appologize for any confusion, but I learn best by example. So thanks so much for your help.

Looks like the funtion you are missing is _IEBodyReadText (and perhaps _IELoadWait)

$sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)
If StringInStr($sText, "It is a new day!") Then
    ; do stuff
EndIf

But the last part can change depending on if it's a normal new day or what caused it. So basically just the newday.php part will be the same.

Is there a way I can have AutoIt use an already loaded page? For instance, I want to test some code on the already loaded IE page. The game I'm playing is random so I need to be able to test different variations of things when I see them, so I can be sure it's doing what I need it to. Thanks so much for your guys's help.
