Closing only hidden IE windows.

Recommended Posts

ParoXsitiC

I have a script that logs into a firewall and then hides the window. Sometimes the scripts errors out or lags out, or we just need to restart the script and it messes up when it tries to create two firewalls. I need a script that can search for all windows that are hidden IE windows and closes them.

This will check if IE is open Then Close all IE Processes

If ProcessExists("iexplore.exe") Then
    ProcessClose("iexplore.exe")
EndIf

Use ProcessList() (or maybe WinList()) to get an array of all IE instances, and loop through the array to check your conditions for closing them.

Hey, finally someone who needs the new feature I added to _IEAttach in the beta... see _IEAttach, Example 5. It creates an array of all browser instances (note that multiple browser instances can be part of a single iexplore.exe process and each can be visible or not). Then use _IEPropertyGet, visible to see it they are visible or not and then _IEQuit to get rid of the ones you want to kill.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. 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?
