_IECreate("about:blank",0,0,1,-1) IE window hidden

8 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

I have a script that auto enters some data into a web form database. I wish to hide it which is why I used _IECREATE with the option 0 for hidden window.

However, sometimes, in order to check the progress, I would like to show the hidden window when I activate some keypresses

Is there a easy way to do it?

tgreat's method will work, another is using _IEAction($oIE, "visible") and _IEAction($oIE, "invisible") in conjunction with HotKeySet

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?

#RequireAdmin
#include<IE.au3>
#include<File.au3>
#include<GUIConstants.au3>
#include<Array.au3>

HotKeySet("+!h", "hidewindow") ;Shift-Alt-h
HotKeySet("+!s", "showwindow") ;Shift-Alt-s

_FileReadToArray($LinkSource,$Links)
_IELoadWaitTimeout($Timeout)
_IEErrorHandlerRegister()
$oIE=_IECreate("about:blank",0,$IEStatus,1,-1)
For $o=0 to $Repeat
    For $i=0 to $Amount     
        MAIN BODY OF CODE
Next

Func hidewindow()
    _IEAction($oIE, "visible")
EndFunc

Func showwindow()
    _IEAction($oIE, "invisible")
EndFunc

I am sorry did I do something wrong for Hotkey set.

Tried it but it does not seem to hide the window when I pressed Shift Alt h and show it when I pressed Shift Alt s

Just for the window ( not your code )

maybe...

#RequireAdmin
#include<IE.au3>
#include<File.au3>
#include<GUIConstants.au3>
#include<Array.au3>

HotKeySet("{F8}", "hidewindow")
HotKeySet("{F9}", "showwindow")
HotKeySet("{ESC}", "_Exit")

;_FileReadToArray($LinkSource,$Links)
;_IELoadWaitTimeout($Timeout)
_IEErrorHandlerRegister()
$oIE = _IECreate("about:blank");,0,$IEStatus,1,-1)
$oHandle = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, 'hwnd')

;'For $o=0 to $Repeat
;   For $i=0 to $Amount
;       MAIN BODY OF CODE
;Next

While WinExists($oHandle)
    Sleep(20)
WEnd


Func hidewindow()
    _IEAction($oIE, "invisible")
EndFunc   ;==>hidewindow

Func showwindow()
    _IEAction($oIE, "visible")
EndFunc   ;==>showwindow

Func _Exit()
    $oIE = ""
    Exit
EndFunc   ;==>_Exit

$oIE = ""
Exit

I recommend using my method as occasionally use some IE COM functions cause the script to crash so I try to use some Win* functions just because they are safer.
