# How do I unblock a clientside javascript popup

## Recommended Posts

Im using ie.au3 to run a client-side web page in a embedded browser in a gui.

the web page has dialog boxes links.....the linked dialog boxes contain javascript and when they open the active-x security warning is diplayed under the address bar.

How can i suppress the active-x warnings?

The web page i'm running is a wysiwyg editor, the pop-up dialog box's are color pickers/insert tables..... etc..

I could change the popups to modal types but it would be heaps of changes to the javascript so hoping there is a workaround.....

cheers

Can you create a small reproducer (see my sig) to test with?

can't think of a small basic example right now.

wysiwyg editor embedded from : openWysiwyg

selecting table or forecolor opens a dialog popup because it running client side gives the security warning.

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
;#include "test2.au3"

_IEErrorHandlerRegister ()

$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded () GUICreate("Embedded Web control Test", 640, 580, _ (@DesktopWidth - 640) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 580) / 2, _$WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW + $WS_VISIBLE +$WS_CLIPSIBLINGS)
$GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 40, 500, 365)

GUISetState()       ;Show GUI
;_IEPropertySet ($oIE, "scrolling", "no") _IENavigate ($oIE, "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\beta\Will\openwysiwygv1.4.6cWill\exampleWill.html")
;_IENavigate ($oIE, "about:blank") ;_IEDocWriteHTML ($oIE, $temp) _IEAction ($oIE, "refresh")
$oIE.document.body.scroll="no" ; Waiting for user to close the window While 1$msg = GUIGetMsg()
Select
Case $msg =$GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
ExitLoop

EndSelect
WEnd

GUIDelete()

Exit

Not sure why an example is required unless the question is being misunderstood.

Whenever IE opens any file running from your hard drive that contains script of any type it will throw up the activex security warning:

html:

<html>
<body>
<script type="text/javascript">
//
</script>
</body>
</html>

if this page was embedded in a gui there is no warning...

If a page embedded in a gui needs to open a popup and the popup contains scripting........how to suppress the security warning?

The example is required so that the question is not misunderstood.

When I open your HTML above in IE I get no warning.

Please take a moment to provide more detailed steps so that there is no question about what you are trying to fix.

Interesting, i'm using IE7 with all settings set to IE's defaults.

When any html file from my HD that contains scripting (javascript etc) is opened with IE the warning is displayed:

If your not getting that warning your "Automatic prompting for ActiveX controls" setting is disabled.....

IE7's help file:

Can I turn off the Information bar?

Yes, you can, but we don't recommend it. If you do want to turn it off, you have to turn it off for each type of message.

Thanks, now it is clear what you are seeing. I have "Allow active content to run in files on My Computer" selected in advanced Internet Options. When I disable that and simply open popup.html in a browser I get the information bar as you describe (no need for the GUI).

I think that the easy way to avoid the information bar from appearing would simply be to change the filename of popup.html to "popup.hta". HyperText Application files run in a different security context.

The other way to deal with it would be to manipulate the information bar once it appears. It is actually a Win32 control and can be accessed with standard AutoIt Win* and Control* functions.

The control has these characteristics:

Control ID: 37425

ClassNameNN: Button1

It is easy enough to click on it, but that creates a popup context menu where the desired element is "Allow Blocked Content...". I do not know how to select options on this menu but it is likely that others do.

I suggest you repost and reformulate your question as strictly a question about selecting an option from a popup context menu, giving popup.html and the information about the control and the option you want to select and see if you can get the answer.
