Can anyone tell me why this _IEAttach isnt working

Recommended Posts


I was hoping to get this to change the body of the page to 'Test' where the already opened IE is 'Google'. IECreate is not an option as the IE will be opened before the script should run.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong when attaching?

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IEAttach ("Google")

$sPage = "<HTML><HEAD></HEAD><BODY>Test</BODY></HTML>"

This does work. I would like to addto/or change the body though

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IEAttach ("Google")

MsgBox(0, "The URL", _IEPropertyGet ($oIE, "locationurl"))

What do you expect that code to do?

Yue do an attach and then you assign a value to a variable. There is nothing in that code that takes any action at all.

To rewrite the page you can use either _IEDocWriteHTML or _IEBodyWriteHTML.

Please see the examples in the helpfile.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
