Waiting for IE page to load... with a twist

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

Okay.. I have an autoit script that is supposed to click links on a webpage (this is done by mousemove commands, mouseclickdrag, and send) keypresses.

Currently, I'm using the sleep command (5000), which means that I am giving enough time for a page to load before the script continues.

I believe that there is an include called IE.au3 that allows autoit to wait for a page to load before proceeding. But as far as I can see, this can only be done if you're waiting for a single page to load, without doing any more navigation.

Any ideas on how I could use that function so that it waits for internet explorer to load any page, regardless of whether it has navigated away from the inital page it was at?

Thanks guys!

There is a function in IE.au3 called _IELinkClickByText that will wait for a page load to complete or any page (by default, but this can be overridden).

_IENavigate waits by default as many other functions do and you can also call _IELoadWait any time you want to.

Check out the examples in the helpfile.

Hi Dale!

The script that I am writing involved clicking certain links, radio buttons, and then clicking one more button (rather than just a link itself).

How would I use the IE include to do this?

Please work through the examples in the helpfile - a lot of work went into them and they all run as stand-alone scripts. Please run them and play with modifying them - I promise you'll learn a lot. Start with the functions I mentioned above.
