StatusbarGetText returns nothing

Recommended Posts

Guest wmak

Hi all, I have a problem using the StatusbarGetText function and would like to ask for some help here.

This is my script:

;Open an Internet Explorer browser

Run ("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Sleep (2000) ; make sure IE is loaded and the word "Done" is displayed in the status bar

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

$ln = StatusbarGetText("Internet Explorer")

MsgBox( 0, "Title", $ln & @CR & @error)

When the script is run in a W2k3 Server, the $ln is nothing (or empty) and @error returns 1.

When the script is run in a WinXP SP2 box, the $ln is still nothing (or empty) but @error returns 0.

I am not concern about the return value of @error at this point but I really need to know how to make the StatusbarGetText to work.

When I use Window Spy, I can see the word "Done" in the Stauts Bar Text section.

Would someone explain to me why the above script is not working?

I am using v3.0.102.

Thank you in advance.

I have the same problem with one of my PC (just 1, the others are working). How did you eventually solve it?

I have upgraded AutiIt to and using IE 8

Ah, yes, should not expect that! Good thing you expert guys are around :graduated:

It is running WinXP SP3.

This is the code that i use for all IE web site apps:

While StatusbarGetText($WebTitle,"",1)<>"完成" And _




The Chinese characters are for my friends who run Chinese IE.
