Do you mean how do you take action on the open IE using Autoit if you didnt create that IE and dont already have control of it?

If so, use this . . .

CODE
#include <IE.au3>

;Take posession of the first open IE

$CloseBrowser = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\", "Window Title")

$oIE = _IEAttach($CloseBrowser, "WindowTitle")

If you know the title of the IE (www.yahoo.com is just Yahoo!) -Then you can just use this

CODE
#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IEAttach("Yahoo!")

I have no idea what you are asking. If you want help here you are going have to be more clear. It took you 5 seconds to write that single line. The average response takes several minutes. If you are asking how to take control of a current IE I have already given you the answer. If you don't understand or that was not what you were asking, I need a detailed response, question, and what you would like it to do. -Otherwise you can post your oneliners till the cows come home.

My rule of thumb is not to put more effort into my answer than the posted invested in the question...

You cannot use ObjGet on InternetExplorer because its instances are not placed into the ROT (Running Object Table).

re: --> IE.au3 V2.3-1 Warning from function _IEAttach, $_IEStatus_NoMatch

Don't make it so complicated. Open a browser to www.yahoo.com and do this:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IEAttach("Yahoo")

Also, please read the documentation and examples in the helpfile. A lot of work went into them to try to anticipate your questions.

#include <IE.au3>
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)  
$title = WinGetTitle("Microsoft Internet Explorer", "")
$len =  StringTrimRight($title, 30)
MsgBox(0, "Full title read was:", $len)
$oIE = _IEAttach($len)
MsgBox(0, "The URL", _IEPropertyGet ($oIE, "locationurl"))

So why are you messing with WinGetTitle? _IEAttach offers all of these match modes:

Optional: specifies search mode

Title = (Default) sub-string of main document title

WindowTitle = sub-string of full window title (instead of document title)

URL = sub-string or url of the current page

Text = sub-string in text from the body of the current page

HTML = sub-string in html from the body of the current page

HWND = hwnd of the browser window

Embedded = title sub-string or hwnd of of the window embedding the control

DialogBox = title sub-string or hwnd of modal/modeless dialogbox

Most all of the match on the substring that you provide.

'Cause your questions do not have enough time invested in them, if you want your questions answered, read the helpfiles, they are quite clear and what you are asking is a simple and sad question that the helpfiles can answer.

The problem is that everyone is trying to help you when they should not be.

I have had some tuff questions answered on this form by the likes of Dale, PSalty and Gary as well as many others. I have also had a few stupid questions answered. -but none of my questions were answered by making others guess what I was asking for or insulting them for trying.

Perhaps if you would spend more time clearly asking your FULLY INFORMED questions then you might get a little more *****FREE******work out of others :P

$oIE = _IEAttach($CloseBrowser, "WindowTitle")

Does this work on non title having third party app generated IE instances?

Like overlays, or app embedded IE instances.

For example, if there is IE popup from a third party application that has no visible title, what is the best way to attach to it?

Something like on event attach?

And how do you determine the elements names without having access to the source?

Look, AutoIt is a very extensive app, and it's hard to wrap your mind around the whole thing.

I have written some complex scripts using some functions, while others remain a complete mystery to me.

I don't understand why/how half of these threads end up in a fight.

We are all just here to learn.

@ Oldschool

-If you posted half the question you just did and I knew, I would be inclined to answer you, but when someone posts one line, reads your response that took minutes, tens of minutes or hours and then responds with another one liner that seems to dismiss your response without a reason or further direction, at what point do you say enough? . . .

As for you first question. I am interested in the answer but don't know. I would repost that questions with a specific title and discription and pm Dale as to its exsistance. I would not suggest a question in the PM just a link. That way others in the form can read it, answer if they can or benifit from what ever Dale gives when he has the time :P

one thing that does come to mind is Au3Info.au3 -it can give info that you may not otherwise see. D:\Program Files\AutoIt3 -For me

_IEAttach has "embedded" and "popup" options taht allow you to attach to to existing embedded IE instances.

To learn about the elements on the page I suggest using DebugBar (see my sig) -- it is extremely well designed, helpful and free.
