Question about _IEBodyReadText ()

Recommended Posts

ehdtkqorl123

What I am gonna do is to grab the contents in <body> of a website called http://asdf.com

So I am gonna use the following function.

#include <IE.au3>

_IEBodyReadText ( ByRef $o_object)

The problem is that I have no idea how to declear the object for the parameter.

I saw

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate("http://asdf.com/")

$sText = _IEBodyReadText ($oIE)

MsgBox(0, "Body Text", $sText)

This works since _IECreate() returns object variable.

But the bad thing is that this functions displays the explorer...

I don't want to open an explorer.. just want to grab the contents by just executing the program.

How can I create an appropriate object for http://asdf.com?

Thanks in advance

Hi ehdtkqorl123,

Is this what you want?

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate("http://asdf.com/")
$sText = _IEBodyReadHTML ($oIE)
MsgBox(0, "Body Text", $sText)

Note that _IECreate allows you to open an invisible browser and then use _IEQuit to close it.
