How to detect IE is running, and close?

5 posts in this topic

How to detect IE is running, and close? I know that can close the activated IE by MouseClick ("left", x,y), but if the IE's window is sized or minimized, then location will be wrong? How to do so? And detect the IE is running, by using the WinActivate, right?

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

While 1
Sleep(1000);saves CPU
If ProcessExists("IEXPLORE.exe") then ProcessClose("IEXPLORE.exe")
WEnd

EDIT: @GEOSoft

Processwaitclose won't close it, it would just wait until it closes before continuing the script

No loop terminator in the above! Help gives a good example:

ProcessClose("notepad.exe")

$PID = ProcessExists("notepad.exe") ; Will return the PID or 0 if the process isn't found.

If $PID Then ProcessClose($PID)

Well slap me upside the head but I think you're mistaken Paulie. Check the help file example for ProcessWaitClose()

EDIT:Better slap me twice. The help file could be misleading (couldn't it?). The proper code is something like this

If ProcessExists("IEXPLORE.exe") then
   ProcessClose("IEXPLORE.exe")
   Do
      Sleep(1)
   Until NOT ProcessExists("IEXPLORE.exe") 
EndIf
