Why cant I get InternetExplorer object?

4 posts in this topic

I cant understand the reason, but the following script doesnt work correctly on my computer:

$o_object = ObjGet("","InternetExplorer.application")

if @error then

Msgbox (0,"InternetExplorerTest","Error Getting an active InternetExplorer Object. Error code: " & @error)

exit

else

$o_object.navigate("http://www.google.com/")

$o_object.visible=1

endif

Before running the script several webbrowser windows are opened, the programm instantly finishes with Msgbox shown.

; Example 1 - Attach to a browser with "AutoIt" in its title, display the URL
; *******************************************************
;
#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach ("AutoIt")
MsgBox(0, "The URL", _IEPropertyGet ($oIE, "locationurl"))

Have a look at this

It doesn't work on anyone's computer. InternetExplorer does not put its instances on the ROT (running object table) so ObjGet will not work. As Shevilie ponts out, take a look at the source for _IEAttach to see how it can be done instead.

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?
