_IECreate() make hidden instance visible

Recommended Posts

GoogleDude

I am trying to automate some webpage logins ect.. with autoit using _IECreate().

My questions is if I use the below code to create a hidden webpage/IE process how can I bring that same instance visible so the user can see it without creating a new ie process? I looked at _IEAttach() but not sure if that is the correct function. I know the title of the window if it wasnt hidden but not sure what function I can use to make that same instance visible again.

_IECreate("https://www.webpage.com","",0,1)

Thanks,

The more and more I play/learn with autoit the more I like it.

lol. I guess I should have read up on _IEAction()

The below seems to have worked for me. Sorry for the waste of a post.

_IEAction($oIE,"visible")

Strange but for some reason when I "_IEQuit($oIE)" it does close the IE Windows but the process still stays running. If AutoIt spawned off the iexplore.exe process in the first place should _IEQuit($oIE) close the Window and the Porcess? At lease that's what I read from the Help.

How could I get the PID of the iexplore.exe that my script opened via _IECreate()? I guess after _IEQuit() I could close the PID if I could find out which one it was. I just dont want to close all iexplore.exe via ProcessClose() as I may have other webpages or IETabs open that I dont want to close

Multiple IE instances use the same iexplore.exe process. Wne the last instance attached is closed (quit) the process runs down.
