Problem with embedded IE object

4 posts in this topic

I have an embedded IE object in a GUI which keeps giving me the error:

IE.au3 V2.3-1 Error from function _IELoadWait, $_IEStatus_InvalidDataType

The code which is causing the problem is

CODE
$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded ()

$GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 5, 110, 390, 160)

$sHTML = "<h1>Hello World!</h1>"

_IEDocWriteHTML ($oIE, $sHTML)

If I use _IENavigate instaed of DocWrite, it works. What am I missing here.

That can't be all of your code... we need something we can run that demonstrates your problem. I obviously just get an error trying to run that. Are you actually getting an error, or just a notification? (does your script stop completely, or do you just see the "error" in your console?)

The trouble is that a container is created with _IECreateEmbedded, but no document to write to. Just add this prior to your _IEDocWriteHTML:

_IENavigate($oIE, "about:blank")

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?
