not a clue !

Is it possible to auto refresh a web page ?

15 posts in this topic

As my login name states I have not a clue, I just stumbled on this program and forum.

What I am wondering is it possible to auto refresh a web page.

I use a forum and tend to leave it on the same page , I would like it to auto refresh about every 10 seconds so as I get an upto date listing of it.

a t b not a clue ! :)

If you use Opera as a browser the auto reload feature is included and activable in the right click menu.

Thanks that is just what I needed, works great for what I want it to do.

I did try to put the script above into practice, well managed it to get me an error box !

Thanks to you all for your pointers on this, will use Opera till I get a better understanding of how to create these properly.

;end copy

this script is as simple as it gets just copy the code and save it as REFRESH.AU3

ezzetabi gave up on you and gave you the easy way out! :)

StrictlyBallin24 took the time to write and comment some code (teach you to fish)

what kind of error are you getting?

p.s. ezzetabi I know you would write dozens of lines of code if needed be

but I just need to know what can go wrong with this simple script

I see no way for an AutoIt error, maybe he changed window and sent a F5 to the wrong program since there are no checks after the first.

So maybe it is better...

HotKeySet("{F11}", "_Terminate");Press F11 to stop this program

Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
$ie = WinGetHandle("Internet Explorer");Assuming you use IE and this is the only IE window you have open
If @error Then Exit

WinActivate($ie)
WinWaitActive($ie)

While 1
   Send("{F5}")
   Sleep(10000)
   
   While Not WinActive($ie)
      Sleep(100)
      If Not WinExists($ie) Then Exit
   WEnd
WEND

Func _Terminate()
   Exit
EndFunc

The only reason i can think it went wrong is thet I got involved in something I know nothing of. Dont know my ar*e end from my elbow on this stuff. Took a copy of script, opened up one of the samples , deleted all contents and pasted script, changed title and saved, all this was in notepad. tThen I tried to get it into AutoIt. When you have all stopped laughing and wiped the tears from yer face, any ideas and a very basic guide very much needed.

I think it is not a smart idea calling ourselves not a clue !, noob or similar silly names. When you'll be an Autoit master you'll will be still "not a clue !" :)

"not a clue !" post...

;Ten pages script...

may sound strange, doesn't it?
