Recommended Posts

Hi

I am trying to save a pdf that is open with Internet explorer.

_IEaction($oframe,"saveas")

Does not appear to respond when its a pdf but works when it is a normal page. I have found a few threads where other people have struggled with this also but they were quite old (2 years or so)

Does anyone know if this i now possible?

Cheers

Unfortunately, IE.au3 cannot help you here. The PDF viewer replaces the MSHTML container that host webpages with its own. This does not interact using standard DOM or InternetExplorer methods. It may have its own, but I have never seen them documented.

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?
