HTML web page generation

5 posts in this topic

I've looked around the forums and in the IE.au3 and I'm still not sure how to begin. I would like to use autoit to generate html pages based on an excel file's cells. I know how to use excel and how to read cells and have autoit move around in excel. I attempted to use a huge send function, but with all the quotes in the source, it wouldn't work. I was going to make a few variables and have those variables put into the text of the source. I was going to have the finished text product pasted into MS word and have it save as html, I know how to do that. My only issue is replacing the various places with the new information. Maybe I should do a string search where it has to match the previous cell perfectly in order to replace the text with the new information. Maybe I would just open up MS word with the text of the page and have use Word's replace tool. Anyone with ideas?

Not sure why you'd want to mess around with pasting text into Word when AutoIt has the ability to write out a file directly (check the help file for FileOpen, FileWriteLine, etc). However, I don't quite understand how you have this set up, what you want your script to accomplish, and what exactly you're having trouble with. Could you post the code you have and point out the problem area? Maybe provide an example and explain the "ideal" output?

CODE
><a href="/filepath/filepath.exe"><img src="../filethumb.jpg" alt="free" width="84" height="63" border="0" lowsrc="/filepath/filepath.exe"></a></p>

<p>Download the <a href="/filepath/filepath.exe

Here is an example of my html page...I will have multiple pages with the same structure...

I will have an excel spreadsheet with the following example data

Filepath Thumnailpath width Height

Birds Birdsthumb.jpg 75 44

Where autoit will pull the filepath column cell, and replace "filepath" with "birds", replace "filethumb.jpg" with "birdsthumb.jpg, and replace the corresponding width and height accordingly.

Therefore making a new web page with the new filepaths to the new files, the new img sources, and the new picture dimensions based on the new cells. I'd imagine it would be some sort of string replace where i would search for the previous cells...and replace with the new cell information?
