_IECreateEmbedded and _IENavigate to server with a port

3 posts in this topic

I'm trying to create a simple GUI with an embedded IE control to log into some sites here at work. The GUI is nothing fancy, so I won't bother posting. It's an IE object created with _IECreateEmbedded, then placed in the GUI with GuiCtrlCreateObj and navigated with _IENavigate.

The problem is that instead of the server login window popping up (standard windows "Connect to..." login message window), the connection fails and I get an IE error page. The same page works fine in normal IE and with _IECreate as expected. The basic URL structure is

http://server.domain.xyz.com:8080/admin.asp

I'm wondering if the port 8080 is throwing it off somehow. I can't think of any general www pages that use this kind of login box anymore to do additional tests unfortunately. So does anyone know if this is a known problem or have a similar one? Possible solution?

I don't know of any publicly accessible sites with alternate ports, but :80 in the syntax doesn't hurt it:
#include <IE.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 800, 600)
$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 10, 780, 580)
GUISetState()
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com:80/linking/linking_famsupp_70.html")

$colLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink in $colLinks
    If String($oLink.InnerText) = "this link" Then
        _IEAction($oLink, "click")
        ConsoleWrite("Popup should be displayed" & @LF)
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

Do
    Sleep(20)
Until GUIGetMsg() = -3

;)

Thanks for the reply. Perhaps it's the popup box then. It's not an IE popup like your example, but a server login popup box. It's actually a windows dialog box, like when you connect to a remote server and you have to authenticate with your login info.

Here's an example. Normally, trying to download this file pops up the same login box. Here, it just fails and no login box is displayed.

#include <IE.au3>

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 800, 600)
$oIE = _IECreateEmbedded()
GUICtrlCreateObj($oIE, 10, 10, 780, 580)
GUISetState()
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://download.eset.com/download/win/eav/eav_nt32_enu.msi")

Do
Until GUIGetMsg() == -3

_IECreate("http://download.eset.com/download/win/eav/eav_nt32_enu.msi")
