Tabed Borwsing

4 posts in this topic

I have writen a program that switches between tabs this works ok but i am having trouble with the tab when i try to click a control in the second tab it always seems to send the click to the original tab and not any other tabs that i create.

I am fairly new to autoit but i am getting there

#include <IE.au3>
#include <string.au3>
AutoItSetOption ("RunErrorsFatal", 0)
$oIE = _IECreate()

HotKeySet ("{ESC}", "MyExit")
AutoItSetOption ( "WinTextMatchMode", 2 )

;                   open tabs and go to recruiter
opentabs()
firstrecbut()
recruit ()


Func MyExit ()
    Exit
EndFunc



Func recruit ()
    
    $oImg = _IEImgGetCollection ($oIE, 2)

    $z = 0
    Do
        _IEImgClick ($oIE, "A.gif?1183931061", "src",2)
        Send ("{CTRLDOWN}")
        Send ("{TAB}")
        Send ("{CTRLUP}")
        _IEImgClick ($oIE, "A.gif?1183931061", "src",2)
        Send ("{CTRLDOWN}")
        Send ("{TAB}")
        Send ("{CTRLUP}")
        sleep(1000)
        
        $z = $Z + 1
    Until $z > 350


EndFunc

Func status()
    autoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
    $x = StatusbarGetText("Internet Explorer")
    While $x = "wait"
        $x = StatusbarGetText("Internet Explorer")
    WEnd
EndFunc

Func opentabs()
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://silver.darkthrone.com/recruiter")
sleep(2000)
Send ("{CTRLDOWN}")
Send ("{t}")
Send ("{CTRLUP}")
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://silver.darkthrone.com/recruiter")
Sleep(2000)
endfunc

Func firstrecbut()
$oImg = _IEImgGetCollection ($oIE, 2)
_IEImgClick ($oIE, "A.gif?1183931061", "src",2)
        Send ("{CTRLDOWN}")
        Send ("{TAB}")
        Send ("{CTRLUP}")
sleep(2000)
$oImg = _IEImgGetCollection ($oIE, 2)       
_IEImgClick ($oIE, "A.gif?1183931061", "src",2)
Sleep(5000)

EndFunc

You approach could work, although it is not the way I would do it. I would use _IEAttach embedded to get the individual tabbed instances once they are created (which, unfortunately is broken in 3.2.10.0 and should be fixed inthe next beta release :-( )

You can also make use of an undocumented __IENavigate function that allows you to do more work with tabs (search the forum for it or look at the source of IE.au3).

One thing I had to do in your code was to put in another sleep after you switched tabs to give it a chance to change before trying to do anything with the bew browser instance in the other tab.
