GUI with an embedded IE-object

Recommended Posts

Lemmens Peter

Hi everybody,

I tried to make a GUI with an embedded IE site...

It works fine for http://www.google.be (link 1)

But it fails for https://pronet.aspex.be/pronetEE/ (link 2) because the website needs a certificate.

I installed the certificate in Internet Explorer and link 2 works fine if tried in Internet Explorer but again does not work any more in the AutoIt-GUI.

I think it has something to to with the line ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2") in the _IECreateEmbedded() function (IE.au3-file)

I tried to replace it with ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application") but it fails also...

Can anybody help please.



#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3> 

_IEErrorHandlerRegister ()
$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded ()
$Gui = GUICreate("Pronet_NOK", @DesktopWidth/2, @DesktopHeight/2, -1, -1, $WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW + $WS_VISIBLE + $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS)
$GUIActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, -1, -1, @DesktopWidth/2, @DesktopHeight/2)
_IENavigate ($oIE, "[url="https://pronet.aspex.be/pronetEE/"]https://pronet.aspex.be</SPAN>/pronetEE/[/url]")

While 1
    $msg = GUIGetMsg()
Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE

The URL is messed up in your post (IPB may have done it, not you).

The behavior for certificats is different based on browser version -- what version do you have and what happens?

You're right. The website is no longer correct. Strange... :P

Try using : https://pronet.aspex.be/pronetEE/

* Using Internet explorer 7.0 and having installed the certificate. I got the correct website. (It's a website asking for a user and password)

* Using the AutoIt I got the message "navigation to the webpage was cancelled.What you can try : refresh the page"

When I refresh the page I got the message "The page requires a client certificate..." (see exact message at the bottom)

It's like not all functionalities are available when using the autoIt-Gui ...
