_IEcreate

Why does it give me a error for _IEAttach while I'm not even using it?

btw, the msgbox DOES work, I just need to open a page with that link each time...

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate ("http://www.facebook.com/friends/?everyone&ref=tn")
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection ($oIE)
For $oLink In $oLinks
    If StringInStr($oLink.href ,"http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=") Then 
        $new_link = StringReplace($oLink.href, "http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=", "http://apps.facebook.com/inthemafia/status_invite.php?from=")
        MsgBox(0, "Link Info", $new_link); match all links that contain the word status_invite
_IECreate($new_link, 1)
    EndIf
Next

I'm using _IECreate and get a error for _IEAttach???

Because the last call to _IECreate is submitted with the second parameter set to 1 ($fTryAttach)

yeah it's not attaching them to another window...

but are the links correct?

The problem is that you can't attach because you are trying to match to a window that doesn't exist.

Depended on the extra information that href is holding apart from the string you changed. If you're asking if the call is correct then I see no problem with _IECreate($new_link). If it'll eventually navigate to the correct page is depended on the href of the previous link.

so to say it im simple language...

the text in the msgbox changes every time and that's each time the link I want to open. If that text changes, then the right page loads?

I know I'm a dumbass... took me 3h to figure this out...

If you didn't want to use _IEAttach(), then why did you set the $f_Attach parameter? Just do _IECreate($new_link) without the 1. What you got was a routine Warning, not an ERROR. It looked for a matching instance to attach to, because you told it to do that with $f_Attach = 1, and didn't find it, so a routine Warning was output before trying to open the page in a new instance of IE.

Erm?? HELP!!!!! how can I get the right page open?

The stuff about attaching has nothing to with "the right page" opening. Add some error checking to your script to see if the URL is right:
#include <IE.au3>

Global $sURL = "http://www.facebook.com/friends/?everyone&ref=tn"
Global $sSearch = "http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id="
Global $sReplace = "http://apps.facebook.com/inthemafia/status_invite.php?from="
Global $oIE, $oLinks, $new_link

$oIE = _IECreate($sURL)
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink In $oLinks
    If StringInStr($oLink.href, $sSearch) Then
        $new_link = StringReplace($oLink.href, $sSearch, $sReplace)
        ConsoleWrite("$new_link = " & $new_link & @LF)
        _IECreate($new_link)
    EndIf
Next

If it fails, examine the output to the console to see what's wrong, or cut/paste the new URL from the console to a browser to see what's up (that's easier to do from the SciTE console than from a MsgBox() dialog).

:P

You may want to add tabs to avoid creating several new processes of IE.

#include <IE.au3>
Dim Const $navOpenInNewTab = 0x0800

Dim $o_IE = _IECreate('http://www.google.com/')
$o_IE.Navigate2('http://www.yahoo.com', $navOpenInNewTab)

The thing to note about the new URL that it doesn't matter if it's correct or exist, it's your responsibility to use a correct one, but to open a new tab without getting run-time errors.

Please note that _IECreate does not create a new ieplore.exe process just because it opens a new window. Creating the new browser instance in a new tab may make sense for other reasons, but it is not required in order to share an IE process. IE shares a single iexplore.exe over multiple instances by default.

@Overlord - the browser creation failure is, in every instance I've seen, caused by a temporary issue on your system. You could have exhausted some system resource or more likely have an iexplore.exe process running on your system that is not responding properly. One of the following should clear this issue: 1) Kill all iexplore.exe processes, 2) logout, 3) reboot, 4) reinstall windows, 5) buy a new computer, 6) get a job at WalMart instead.

Typically you don't need to go past step 1)

GREAT,

thx everybody (Especially Psalty for cleaning up a bit. Authenticity, TY also for the tabbing :-)

@Dale : tip nr1 did it. But I figured that part out already. ty anyway.

now the script is running way better.

Just a question now.

Is there anything I can do so that it doesn't open 99% of the pages twice?

thx again everybody!!

Oh man... why didn't you say that before I got to step 6?! Now I'll have to keep the job as a greeter just to pay for the computer!

Go back to using the $f_Attach option in _IECreate(), and remember this time that the Warnings are normal (Errors are not) if it doesn't already exist.

:P
