How to do things in the background of IE

10 posts in this topic

Okay I'm looking to make a program that will go to Neopets website, login, go to a section of the site, grab the source from this section, click on a link. All invisibly with no IE window, I'm not asking for the script to do this, I'm just wondering what syntax i'd use to do this.

Also, I need the grabbing the source, and clicking the link part to be fast.....

I always prefer using _InetGetSource, I find IE more difficult.

#include <Inet.au3>
$Source = _InetGetSource("www.google.ca")

I plan on using _InetGetSource but I need to be able to visit links invisibly as well. Then send a success or fail back to my GUI. Edited by SteveO

_IECreate has an option to make the IE instance invisible. See the helpfile. For links, see the _IELink* functions. To get source, see _IEBodyRead* or _IEDocRead*

But would this be fast? IE, when you can actually see the window tends to be slow....is it faster when you can't see the window?

Yes, but test for yourself.

I just need it to go to

http://www.neopets.com/donations.phtml?

Search for a specific string like 100 Gold...compare it to what the user requested....say they requested 2000 Gold, check to see if 100 gold if > 2000 gold, then click the link for the item, or leave it alone depending what the user specified.
