Switching between IE applications

Recommended Posts


I am trying to navigate between open windows and having trouble doing so. Here is my script:

Dim $ih[12];6 websites
dim $site[12]   
#include <IE.au3> 
    $site[3] = "http://www.drudgereport.com";geographical forecast
    $site[4] = "http://www.weather.gov/outlook_tab.php";national map
    $site[5] = "http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/610day/610temp.new.gif";6 to 10 day
    $site[6] = "http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/814day/814temp.new.gif";8 to 10 day
    $site[7] = "http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/long_range/seasonal.php?lead=01"; Long Range

$weather1 = _IECreate ($site[3], 1, 1, 0)
    WinSetState($weather1, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    $weather1 = WinGetTitle($weather1)
$weather2 = _IECreate ($site[4], 1, 1, 0)
    WinSetState($weather2, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    $weather2 = WinGetTitle($weather2)
$weather3 = _IECreate ($site[5], 1, 1, 0)
    WinSetState($weather3, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    $weather3 = WinGetTitle($weather3)
$weather4 = _IECreate ($site[6], 1, 1, 0)
    WinSetState($weather4, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
    $weather4 = WinGetTitle($weather3)
    _IEAction ($weather1, "focus")

The _IEAction won't focus back on my original web site. I'd like to copy and paste pictures on these web sites into a power point application.

Use _IEPropertyGet to get the hwnd, then use the hwnd with WinActivate

IE.au3 issues with Vista - Workarounds

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?
