IE Get Source URL For Downloaded File

Recommended Posts


Im working on a script that when a .torrent file be clicked on in your web browser you would be prompted to 1. download/execute the file localy or 2. send the URL to a server so the server can handle it... but i dont see anyway of doing this, except to download the file localy then upload it to the server and thats alot more complicated then just sending the URL. any ideas?

also, taking a step back this problem could be avoided if the HTTP-POST type=file was possible

this script would be designed for uTorrents webUI interface for anyone whos familiar... basicly its a web interface for the program that among other things can accept URL's as a means of adding new files to download, as an alternative it also accepts files via the HHTP-POST type=file method i see the 'work around' method but i dont understand the example, as it contains no urls or other comparable fields

im out of ideas.. thank for any tips!

I guess i should start by trying to understand the 'work around' for HTTP-POST type=file

here is the code from help file:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IE_Example("form")

; Hide the browser window to demonstrate sending text to invisible window
_IEAction($oIE, "invisible")

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "ExampleForm")
$oInputFile = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "fileExample")

; Assign input focus to the field and then send the text string
_IEAction($oInputFile, "focus")
$hIE = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd")
ControlSend($hIE, "", "[CLASS:Internet Explorer_Server; INSTANCE:1]", "C:\myfile.txt")

MsgBox(0, "Success", "Value set to C:\myfile.txt")
_IEAction($oIE, "visible")

maybe im way off here, but based on the code in this example, this isnt what im looking for... i dont see any data about what URL the 'file' is being uploaded to, or anything of the such...
