Can Not Access IE Frames

Recommended Posts

Jester009

Hi guys,

I'm trying to access the IFRAMES of the following URL. But I get an error. Can anybody please explain what's going on?

$oIE = _IECreate("http://www.quickonlinetips.com/archives/2008/08/adsense-ads-below-post-title/")
$oFrames = _IEFrameGetCollection ($oIE)
$iNumFrames = @extended
For $i = 0 to ($iNumFrames - 1)
    $oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection ($oIE, $i)
    MsgBox(0, "Frame Info", _IEPropertyGet ($oFrame, "locationurl"))
Next

I get this error...

D:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3 (3140) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:
Return $o_object.location.href()
Return $o_object.location.href()^ ERROR

???

Add _IEErrorHandlerRegister() near the top of your code. If you get an Access is Denied error, you have a cross-domain security error. Only work around is to open the src of the crame in a new window.

Hi Dale, Thanks for the advice. How do I open the frame in a new window?

I get the Access is denied error.

How do I open the source in another window?

Any help is appreciated...

Try..

$oFrame = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "frame name")
$sSrc = $oFrame.src
$oIE2 = _IECreate($sSrc)

Hi DjDeep00, Thanks for the reply.

I tried the code, but it only launches a blank IE

Make sure $oFrame is an object and that .src returns a valid URL.

I'm pretty sure this thread was abandoned as the last post was 7 weeks ago, but if someone still cares, the urls could have been retrieved like this:

#include <ie.au3>
#include <array.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate("http://www.quickonlinetips.com/archives/2008/08/adsense-ads-below-post-title/")
$sSource = _IEDocReadHTML($oIE)
$aFrames = StringRegExp($sSource,'<IFRAME.*?src="(.*?)"',3)
_ArrayDisplay($aFrames)

Alternatively the source could have been retrieved with InetRead, resulting in faster code.
