Need IE.au3 help to detect words

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

Need a few pointer on how to accomplish this

The portion of html code

<td style="background-color:Red;font-family:Verdana;font-size:Smaller;font-weight:bold;">device_test</td><td style="background-color:Red;font-family:Verdana;font-size:Smaller;">falcon62</td><td style="background-color:Red;font-family:Verdana;font-size:Smaller;">1/15/2003 6:34:11 PM</td><td style="background-color:Red;font-family:Verdana;font-size:Smaller;">abnormal</td><td style="background-color:Red;font-family:Verdana;font-size:Smaller;">288</td><td style="background-color:Red;">

I would like to know what command could be used to detect the background-color RED for falcon62. This would than be shown using a msgbox.

Kindly advise

OK, pointers.

I'd suggest using the IE Management UDF, IE.au3

I'd then use _IETagnameGetCollection to get the TD elements on the page ($oTDs = _IETagnameGetCollection($oIE, "td")

I'd then loop through the TDs looking for your falcon62 text with _IEPropertyGet($oTD, "innertext")

Once I found the correct element, I'd again use _IEPropertyGet($oTD, "outerhtml") to get the the TD tag HTML that I could parse through to find the background-color value.

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?
