_IEAttach() to an embedded browser control

3 posts in this topic

So, another post got me thinking... can you _IEAttach() to a browser embedded as a control in an AutoIt window?

My demo is two scripts. One creates an AutoIt GUI with an embedded IE object for a control. The second script looks for the first one, and offers to navigate it to Google's page.

; Script One - The Embedded IE GUI

#include <ie.au3>
#include <guiconstants.au3>

Opt("GuiOnEventMode", 1)

$hGUI = GUICreate("Embedded IE", 600, 400)
GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_Quit")
$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 10, 580, 340)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("OpenOffice.org", 125, 360, 100, 30)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Go")
$Button2 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Mozilla", 375, 360, 100, 30)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "_Go")
_IENavigate($oIE, "about:Blank", 0)
GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(20)
WEnd


Func _Go()
    Switch @GUI_CtrlId
        Case $Button1
            _IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.OpenOffice.org", 0)
        Case $Button2
            _IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.Mozilla.org", 0)
    EndSwitch
EndFunc   ;==>_Go

Func _Quit()
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_QuitoÝ÷ Ù«­¢+ØìMÉ¥ÁÐQݼ´Ñй9Ù¥Ñ((¥¹±Õ±Ðí¥¹ÔÌÐì()!½Ñ-åMÐ ÅÕ½ÐííM

Running the first script, then the second detects the GUI and get the control handle, but _IEAttach() fails on no match.

Can a brother get a poke with the clue stick...?

Try _IEAttach with "embedded" using the GUI window title instead of using "hwnd"

Doh! :whistle:

I had to look up the HWND option in the help file, and EMBEDDED was right there below it. How did I miss that?

Works fine with just that change:

$oIE = _IEAttach("[CLASS:AutoIt v3 GUI; TITLE:Embedded IE]", "embedded")

:">
