get handle of IE to attach to

Recommended Posts

wolle7

Hi,

I want to open a local html page. Then I want to get, with the title of that page, the corresponding handle. On that handle I want to attach an IE.

My problem is, that with every _IEnavigate a new window of IE is opened. I guess I have the wrong classname, but which one is the correct one ?

shellExecute ("iexplore.exe", @ScriptDir & "\lcgw_start.html")
WinWait ("LCGW - START")
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
$IEhandle = WinGetHandle("classname=IEFrame", "lcgw")
$oIE = _IEAttach ($IEhandle, "HWnd")
_IELoadWait ($oIE)
_IENavigate ($oIE, "http://mydomain.com")
_IELoadWait ($oIE)

What is the correct classname so only one IE window is openend when I use _IENavigate.

Cheers Wolle

_IENavigate() does not normally open another browser window. I'm not sure how you would get it to do that. You could just replace that script with two lines of code:
#include <IE.au3>

$sURL = "file:///" & StringReplace(@ScriptDir & "\lcgw_start.html", "\", "/")
$oIE = _IECreate($sURL)
_IENavigate ($oIE, "http://mydomain.com")

The _IELoadWait() is done by default, and WinTitleMatchMode = 4 functionality has worked by default for the last several version of AutoIt (though it's not required here anyway).

:D

Edit: Modified demo to use proper "file:///" URL syntax.

If you're running Vista, see the UAC notes for _IECreate in the helpfile or upgrade to IE8.
