How to read text content from hta application

7 posts in this topic

Hi All,

Please help as im new to Autoit.

Im having Hta application which internally uses a java script file to display actual text content in the hta application. Please tell me how to extract text from hta application(main content in a external .js file).

sample code:

$oIE = _IEAttach ($oIE, "embedded")

If @Extended Then

MsgBox(0, "", "Attached to Existing Browser failed")

EndIf

$oH = _IEPropertyGet ($oIE,"innerhtml")

MsgBox(0,"",$oH);

Code sample displays only the current tags of hta but not the actual content of the .js file which is used in .htm file.

Regards,

Ramnath

Should be:
$oIE = _IEAttach ($vID, "embedded")
Where $vID is either title or HWND of the control. See the help file entry for _IEAttach().

If you just want the text from the hta file then you could use FileRead. If you need to extract a particular section then could use StringRegExp.

$text = FileRead("some.hta")
$section = StringRegExp($text,$someSearchCondition)
;or perhaps
$section = _StringBetween($text,$start,$end)
