help with a new program

Recommended Posts

nafberger

I am new to autoit, I read thru the documentation, I would like to design a program as follows:

I have a list of 10 internet shortcut files in my internet explorer favorites folder

Usually, if I want to print a page from each of the favorites files, I need to do that manually of course.

I would like to design a program which should open each internet shortcut file, display the page, somehow click the print option in the bottom of the page, (or add "/print" to the end of the url address in the address bar) and make ctrl-p, and print one page of each.

Now the second part, from displaying the print page onwards is somewhat clear to me how to do it by following the WinZip install demonstration in the documentation, but on the the beginning I wave no clue how to do it, can some one help me please.

Thank you

I'd first try ShellExecute with the correct "verb". That would launch my default browser (the default action for the files anyway) Firefox opens subsequent pages in new tabs by default.
