Shell.Explorer.2 COM obj issue

3 posts in this topic

hi all,

i am a newbie to Autoit It,i was going through COM objects and i am stuck at a point.

The problem that i m facing is i m not able to use "navigate" with the "Shell.Explorer.2"

I m using Autoit v3 and have IE6 installed in my system

following is my script :

$oIE = ObjCreate("Shell.Explorer.2")

$oIE.visible = 1

$oIE.navigate( "www.google.com" )

please let me know if i am doing something wrong here

the Error message i get in the SCiTE Editor is like this

$oIE.navigate( "www.google.com" )^Error

Note :

1.I am able to see the "Microsoft Web Browser" with the OLE Viewer,so its not that this com object is not present in my system

2. Also,this is not the case with "InternetExplorer.Application.1" COM obj

the below mentioned script runs without any error

$oIE = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application.1")

$oIE.visible = 1

$oIE.Navigate( "www.google.com" )

So please let me know what the error with "Shell.Explorer.2" com obj is,

thanks,

ravi

That object is intended to be embedded... you cannot interact with it until you give it a container (notice that your .visible produced no result). See GuiCtrlCreateObj or _IECreateEmbedded

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?
