GetUrl() ?

10 posts in this topic

Is there any autoit function that can call a url such as: "http://www.website.com/test/WriteForm.asp?u_input=Test" without opening a browser window?

I have tried InetGet() but it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks

#include <IE.au3>

_IECreate ( [$s_Url = "about:blank" [, $f_tryAttach = 0 [, $f_visible = 0 [, $f_wait = 1 [, $f_takeFocus = -1]]]]] )

Just call it invisible? :-/

I need to send the query string "u_input=Test" to the "WriteForm.asp" file.

in flash i can use:

getURL("WriteForm.asp?u_input=Test", "0", "POST");

I dont know if autoit can do something like this or not.

Not sure what your trying to do but this would work for IE

$IEInstance = Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Internet Explorer\Iexplore.exe " & $url, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)

Is there any autoit function that can call a url ... without opening a browser window? .... InetGet() ... doesn't seem to work.

When I can't accomplish what I need with INetGet() I've been forced to use the IE.au3 functions. Have you looked at the Help file and the option settings for _IECreate()?

This from the Help file....

$f_visible Optional: specifies whether the browser window will be visible

0 = Browser Window is hidden

1 = (Default) Browser Window is visible

; *******************************************************
; Example 5 - Create an invisible browser window, navigate to a website,
;               retrieve some information and Quit
; *******************************************************
;
#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate ("http://sourceforge.net", 0, 0)
; Display the innerText on an element on the page with a name of "sfmarquee"
$oMarquee = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "sfmarquee")
MsgBox(0, "SourceForge Information", $oMarquee.innerText)
_IEQuit ($oIE)

Maybe try this:

#include <INet.au3>

_INetGetSource ("http://www.website.com/test/WriteForm.asp?u_input=Test")

Basically sending the return value to null.

The asp page just writes the value of "u_input" to a text file on the server.

Thanks for all the tips guys, I'll try them out.

Ok, here is my finished script.

it checks your machines ip address, and fit it changes, the new ip address is written to a text file on a server.

I had been using a script that used blat.dll to email the ip address to me but due to some limitations it would no longer work.

Thanks for the quick help.

#include <Inet.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Global $szLastIP = FileRead("ip.txt")
Global $iCheckEvery = "5"
Global $url="http://www.website.com/test/WriteForm.asp?u_input="

While 1
    $szCurrentIP    = _GetIP()
    $szLastIP = FileRead("ip.txt")  
    If $szCurrentIP <> $szLastIP  And $szCurrentIP <> -1 Then
        $szLastIP   = $szCurrentIP
        FileDelete("ip.txt")
        FileWriteLine("ip.txt",$szCurrentIP)
        $IEInstance = Run(@ProgramFilesDir & "\Internet Explorer\Iexplore.exe " & $url&$szCurrentIP, @SystemDir, @SW_HIDE)
        Sleep(2000)
        ProcessClose($IEInstance)
        Sleep($iCheckEvery * 60000)
    EndIf
WEnd
