IE Page Loading - Error Protection

5 posts in this topic

So far, to ensure that a page is loaded correctly, I just read the text on the page and see if I can find a word unique to the page I'm trying to load. My current method is as follows:

$oIE = _IECreate()

_IENavigate($oIE, "http://google.com)
_IELoadWait($oIE)

;Makes sure page is loaded
$pageText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)
$check = StringInStr($pageText, "Advanced Search")

If $check = 0 Then
    Do
        Sleep(30000)
        _IEAction($oIE, "refresh")
        $pageRefresh = _IEBodyReadText($oIE)
        $check = StringInStr($pageRefresh, "Advanced Search")
    Until $check > 0
EndIf
;-----------------------------------

However, I was wondering if there is a better way to do this. Perhaps there is a function or a method to read the url that is currently loaded?

The main thing I'm looking for is how to detect the url of the current page. That way, I can more easily accommodate for login pages.

Thanks in advance for any help.

From the help file:

Several IE.au3 functions call _IELoadWait() automatically (e.g. _IECreate(), _IENavigate() etc.). Most functions that do this also allow you to turn this off with a $f_wait parameter if you do not want the wait or if you want to call it yourself.

#include 

$oIE = _IECreate("http://google.com")

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

Many web pages with logins use a standard Windows API to pop up a dialog box. The page in IE will not finish loading until the pop up dialog is dealt with. Of course, this is not an issue if the login is HTML code on the page.

And if the former is the case, see the new example for _IEAction (Example 2) in the latest AutoIt release to find a method of dealing with it (I found I was answering this question several times a week, so I made certain the example got into this release).
