Prob: Opening a hyperlink hidden

4 posts in this topic

I think this goes best with a lil example:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://www.dutchleader.nl/zoek.php?zoek=vendetta",0, 0)

_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "http://www.criminalsloco.eu/totalclan.php?x=Vendetta")

(u must allow popups for dutchleader.nl else this wont work I guess)

In the example the script creates an instance of IE hidden....this works nicely!

The problem is that when the script opens the hyperlink in a new IE instance that instance wont be hidden.

I found this in the help:

When opening a local HyperTextApplication (.hta) file, Internet Explorer will open a new browser process for it that will not be accessible through the object variable returned by _IECreate. To control this new browser you must use _IEAttach with the "embedded" option.

Still...I havent figured out how 2 get this done...the window of the opened hyperlink just has to be hidden :S

Plz help...thx in advance.

Your popup is not a .hta, so taht comment does not directly apply.

Using _IEAttach to get a reference to the new window using any of the modes EXCEPT embedded or dialogbox followed by _IEAction with the "invisible" parameter should work for you.

_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "http://www.criminalsloco.eu/totalclan.php?x=Vendetta",0,0) ;last "0" opens the link hidden
