Save IE URL from Address Bar

Recommended Posts

MacBain00

I'm in the process of learning AutoIT, but I'm a bit stuck. I have the original link save in a string, open an IE window, log in, etc. Once you log in, the url name changes accordingly with a random string now in the url to track your usage. I need a way to get that URL, save it in a string, and the change it to do a specific logout function. Basically the question is, how do I save that URL. I tried _IEPropertyGet, but that requires you to have an object (which I think is the original $oIE link that I created). Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I'm sure that there is a better way to do this using one of the IE.au3 UDFs, but I would use ControlGetText

Edit: Test this from within SciTE:

ConsoleWrite(ControlGetText("AutoIt Forums", "", "Edit1"))

i think it could be the $oIE var that u use in IEPropertyGet but i'm not sure. try:

"locationurl" Retrieves the URL of the resource that Internet Explorer is currently displaying.

Another way of getting the url while the window is open is to do alt + d, then cut it, and save it.

You can use _IEAttach to get an object reference to an existing browser.

Thanks for all the helps guy. Fast responses are truly appreciated. I finally did get it. I was opening the IE window incorrectly and didn't have a sleep command in there to give the page time to load.

Dim $addressbar = ""

$addressbar = _IEPropertyGet($StudySite, "locationurl")

MsgBox(4096, "Title", $addressbar) ;display the address found

That's how I got it to work.

Thanks again.

This is an actual extension of the original problem. I saved the original and changed it to what i need it to be in $StringAddress. Now I need to paste that string into the URL address bar and go to that new site. How is this accomplished?

Thanks again for any help

You might also want to take a look at using te keyboard shortcuts that are already built into IE

ALT+D selects the text in the address bar.

Edit:

The full list of shortcuts for IE7 can be found here

http://dundats.mvps.org/Internet/InternetE.../IE7_keybrd.htm

Most also apply to previous versions of IE

If using IE.au3, use _IENavigate

I know the last reply on this topic was (almost exactly) 5 years ago, but I post this for everyone who, like me, stumbles upon this topic, trying to find a way to read the IE adress bar. This works just fine for me:

ControlGetText("[CLASS:IEFrame]", "", "Edit1")

Used with MsgBox to see the effect:

MsgBox(0, "", ControlGetText("[CLASS:IEFrame]", "", "Edit1"))

Hope this will be of use to someone. ;-)

SOry for newbie question. I want write addres after function into my text file.

$url_aktualny = ("$function_reading_http_addres_from_$oie")
$url = ("url.txt")
FileWrite($url, $url_aktualny)

Which command to read the value that was saved by the form of http:// or www.

And IE window:

Local $oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()

Just don't want spam with new topic :)
