Use AutoIT to run thought a list of URLs?

9 posts in this topic

I saw this done before, but now I wish try this for myself.

Can someone provide me the codes/ways you would use to be able to use AutoIt to run/visit a list of URLs.

example:

I would like the script for this program, so that when I click it. the program will run through a list of URLs (As in visit a website then replace that with another website, *visiting a list of URLs)

www.google.com

www.yahoo.com

www.myspace.com

I want it to just visit each website

Hi, and wellcome! :)

You can use ShellExecute inside a loop..

Dim $aURL_List[4]

$aURL_List[0] = 3
$aURL_List[1] = "www.google.com"
$aURL_List[2] = "www.yahoo.com"
$aURL_List[3] = "www.myspace.com"

For $i = 1 To $aURL_List[0]
    ShellExecute($aURL_List[$i])
Next

That's awesome, but is it possible to replace the URLs rather than opening up a new tab/window for it? Because I wish to use AutoIt get views on 10+ of my videos, and I really wish there is a way to just open a URL then replace that with the next URL so I wouldn't have to open 10+ windows for all URLs.

Take a look at the IE.au3 tools by dale.

You can use the _ienavigate to then navigate the same IE browser to each website individually rather than opening them all in different browsers.

Hope that helps.

It's depends on what browser is used, for IE Brickoneer answered, for the Opera/Firefox, search on the forum for WWW_OpenURL +Opera/Firefox (i posted few examples).

I used to do scripts like that a lot :)

I usually did them like this : I wrote the links in a textfile and then I visited each one .

AutoIT has file support , so I guess it would be easier like this instead of hardcoding them in your script.

Here is a sample code you could use :

#RequireAdmin

#include <IE.au3>

HotKeySet("!z","NextLink");

Dim $PathToFile,$FileHandle,$Line,$browser;

$PathToFile=InputBox("Input","Enter the path to the file containing the links");

$FileHandle=FileOpen($PathToFile,0);

If @error<>0 Then
    MsgBox(0,"Error","Error Opening the File");
    Exit
EndIf

$browser=_IECreate();

While 1
    Sleep(300);
WEnd

Func NextLink()
    Local $Line=FileReadLine($FileHandle);
    If @error=-1 Then
        MsgBox(0,"Sorry","Ran out of links!");
        Exit;
    Else
        _IENavigate($browser,$line);
    EndIf
EndFunc

It's pretty straightforward . You press Alt+Z to jump to next link .

See ya !
