Here is my code:

func _depotMD()
    $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com", 0,1)
    $page = _IEbodyReadtext($oIE)
    $sIs1 = StringInStr($page,"Server Login")   
    if $sIs1 > 1 then 
        _IEAction($oIE, "visible")  
            $page = _IEbodyReadtext($oIE)
            if $page = -1 then sleep(1)
            $sIs1 = StringInStr($page,"Orders\By Person")
            $sIs2 = StringInStr($page,"authorized")
        until $sIs1 > 1  or $sIs2 = 36
        if $sIs1 > 1 then           
        if $sIs2 > 1 then 
            MsgBox(48, "Authorzation Required!", "You are not authorized to access the Depot website.", 5)

I'm using this method to see if one of 2 pages comes up when someone tries to access a website. My problem is when the page is in transition in the Do loop, _IEbodyReadtext will sometimes cause a crash of my script:

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3 (2143) : ==> Variable must be of type "Object".:

Return $o_object.document.body.innerText

Return $o_object.document.body^ ERROR

I can change the delay to 500 on the last line, but that still leaves the possiblity of a crash. What would be a good way to check to see which one oif the 2 pages I'm on the lookout for show up?

I tried putting after the _IEbodyReadText a error check. - If $page = -1 then sleep(1). Didn't work

Put _IELoadWait($oIE) just before the _IEBodyReadText

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?
