Very Simple: Toying with IE

Recommended Posts

ers03

Hi,

I just started using AutoIt about an hour ago and I've been having fun toying around with it and marveling at what is possible with it.. I've read through the forums and have been trying to get some of the _IE functions to work.

I can use _IECreate to open a webpage no problem. I've been frustrated though trying to set forms to display just a simple string. I've been through numerous simple examples and have even copied the code verbatim to no avail. Here's the code - Just for good measure I try to close the window at the end, but that does not work either.

#include <ie.au3>
$page = _IECreate ("http://www.google.com")
$forms = _IEFormGetCollection ($page, 0)
$felement = _IEFormElementGetCollection ($forms, 1)
_IEFormElementSetValue ($felement, "test")
_IEFormSubmit ($forms)

_IEAction($Page,"quit")

The page opens up (2 windows for some reason), goes to google, then just sits there. Can someone help? Thanks!

I copy/pasted your code and the AutoIt does the same thing - opens google in IE (along with a second, blank window) and sits there. So I guess it's not a syntax problem!

See the notes about Vista UAC in the _IECreate section of the helpfile.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
