_IECreate was hidden, now it not, why . . .?

5 posts in this topic

The following code starts a hidden IE. It was working friday, now it is displaying . . . anyone have any idea why?

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("http://messaging.sprintpcs.com/textmessaging/compose", 0, 0); creates hidden IE window

;$oIE = _IECreate("http://messaging.sprintpcs.com/textmessaging/compose"); Creates IE window

Full code below. Thanks :)

CODE
include <IE.au3>

#include <Inet.au3>

#NoTrayIcon

$PublicIP = _GetIP()

$oIE = _IECreate("http://messaging.sprintpcs.com/textmessaging/compose", 0, 0); creates hidden IE window

;$oIE = _IECreate("http://messaging.sprintpcs.com/textmessaging/compose"); Creates IE window

$oForms = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "composeForm"); Finds the "Form" to send the SMS

$oNum1 = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForms, "phoneNumber"); Finds the "Phone Number" Field

$intNumber = "SprintNumberHere" ; "Phone Number"

_IEFormElementSetValue($oNum1, $intNumber); Sets the phone number field

$oMessage = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForms, "message"); Finds the "Message" field

$sMessage = "Your IP address is " & $PublicIP & " as of today's date." ; "Message"

_IEFormElementSetValue($oMessage, $sMessage); Sets the Message field

$oCallBack = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForms, "callBackNumber"); Finds the Callback Field

$intCall = "SprintNumberHere" ; "Callback Number"

_IEFormElementSetValue($oCallBack, $intCall); Sets the CallBackfield

_IEFormSubmit($oForms)

All I can think is to insure you are not including an old version of IE.au3... check out the console output from _IE_VersionInfo().

I'm using v2.2-1 on this machine update 5/9/7

When I get home this evening, I will have to check the machine at home that it was working on. Vista, around the same install data, maybe a couple weeks later, we shall see. Thanks for the response. :)

Unfortunately, Vista is a new kettle of fish. Please see this thread for a possible, albeit stinky, workaround: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...c=47920&hl=
