Calling _IECreate too fast disables hidden feature? Aka: Browsers wont hide? Huh?

2 posts in this topic

I just noticed something. It might be that I'm running IE8 & Windows7

When I run this:

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

Result: Hides Window!

When I run this:

_IECreate ("https://www.google.com",1,0,0,0)
Msgbox(0,"","Click When ready")
_IECreate ("https://www.google.com",1,0,0,0)

Result: Hides Window!

When I run this:

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

Result: Does not hide window... They Get called, but then pop up windows a few seconds later.

Stats (I've done this too. 'The Workarounds'):

1.) YES: add #RequireAdmin to your code

2.) YES: add the target website to the Trusted Sites security zone in IE,

3.) YES: turn off "Protected Mode" in IE, or

4.) YES: disable UAC.

Is this normal? I wanted to create 20 instances of my _IECreate using a for loop and put the objects in an array, but they all showed up for some reason. This is my debugging of it.

Can't duplicate your environment. It's not a problem with IE7 and XP Pro:
#include <IE.au3>

Global $oIE[4]
For $n = 0 To UBound($oIE) - 1
    $oIE[$n] = _IECreate ("https://www.google.com",1,0,0,0)
Next

Sleep(5000)

For $n = 0 To UBound($oIE) - 1
    _IEAction($oIE[$n], "visible")
    Sleep(1000)
    _IEQuit($oIE[$n])
Next

This works fine for me.

:P
