IENavigate gives cached page

Recommended Posts



I got a nice script that does some automated task on a web page, using _IENavigate(). My problem is that _IENavigate() sometimes gives a cached page, not a fresh one as it would if I manually clicked the link.

I use _IEAction($ObjIE, "refresh") as a workaround, but it takes more time because it reloads the full page.

Is there any way to solve this?

Unless there is some elaborate Javascript associated with the link on that webpage you won't get a different response by clicking on it than you do by using the function in AutoIt -- they both use the same method.

Regarding your question, you can use an undocumented function in IE.au3 -- __IENavigate

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?
