6 posts in this topic

Keep getting this error any ideas?

Return $o_object.document.body.innerText

Return $o_object.document.body^ ERROR

Error: Variable must be of type "Object".

How can I stop the script from crashing if i get an _IE error?

Without sample code I cannot tell you why you get the error.

To prevent script abort, use _IEErrorHandlerRegister()

Here is the loop it breaking on

Case $dif >= 10000
            _IEErrorHandlerRegister ()
            $begin = TimerInit()
            $HTML = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)
            ConsoleWriteError(@error)
                If @error = 3 Then;($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) = Invalid Data Type
                MsgBox(0,"Error","No HTML")
                $HTML=''
                Sleep(1000)
                EndIf
            $SOURCE = _IEBodyReadHTML($oIE)
            ConsoleWriteError(@error)
                If @error = 3 Then;($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) = Invalid Data Type
                MsgBox(0,"No SOURCE","")
                $SOURCE =''
                Sleep(1000)
            EndIf
            _IEErrorHandlerDeRegister()

No problem here...

Working Script

#include<IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("www.autoit3.com")

;Case $dif >= 10000
            _IEErrorHandlerRegister ()
            $begin = TimerInit()
            $HTML = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)
            ConsoleWriteError("TEST ********" & @CRLF & @error)
                If @error = 3 Then;($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) = Invalid Data Type
                MsgBox(0,"Error","No HTML")
                $HTML=''
                Sleep(1000)
                EndIf
            $SOURCE = _IEBodyReadHTML($oIE)
            ConsoleWriteError("TEST ********" & @CRLF & @error)
                If @error = 3 Then;($_IEStatus_InvalidDataType) = Invalid Data Type
                MsgBox(0,"No SOURCE","")
                $SOURCE =''
                Sleep(1000)

Val is right. It will depend on what $oIE is pointing to and the document that it contains. For example, a PDF document will cause errors with this call because it exposes completely different objects, properties and methods to InternetExplorer.

Please try to create a reproducer.
