Make _IECreate turn visible later

Recommended Posts


I have a script that starts like this

$oIE = _IECreate('www.url.com', 0, 0)

I want the window to be invisible while the script is navigating to the right page, once it finds the right page I want it to turn visible so I was wondering if there was a function to turn an invisible _IE window to visible _IETurnVisible or something like that.

Global $IE

_IE("www.google.com", 5000)

Func _IE($URL, $Sleep)
$IE = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application.1")
$IE.Visible = 0
$IE.Visible = 1

Using _IE functions:

_IEAction ($oIE, "visible")

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?
