_ClipPutHTML

Okay, since I created the _ClipPutHyperlink() function, I figured I might as well just go one step further and open up the whole HTML Clipboard send/put interface and make it really simple to use - not only for simple Hyperlinks, but also for complete pieces of HTML code as well.

Note that 'PlainText' is the optional view of your HTML code that should be free of formatting. This is helpful when pasting to applications that don't accept HTML formatted strings, such as Notepad.

Note also that the HTML code NEEDS to be encoded in UTF-8 format. (For straight-ANSI/ASCII code, you don't need to do anything, UTF-8 encoding only comes into play for Unicode formatting).

Anyway, bundled in the ZIP is the UDF and a short example (same as the below HTMLPut Example).

Additionally, see the sample code for _ClipGetHTML().

Example 1: HyperlinkPut:

; Special Unicode text call
_ClipPutHyperlink("http://www.google.co.jp/",ChrW(0x30B0)& ChrW(0x30FC)& ChrW(0x30B0)& ChrW(0x30EB)& " (Japanese Google)")
; Regular text
_ClipPutHyperlink("http://www.google.com","Google")

- Example 'paste' Output -

Unicode Hyperlink:

グーグル (Japanese Google)

Regular Hyperlink:

Google

Example 2: HTMLPut

; Example is in 'Quote' because Code & AutoIt tags fail to handle this properly at the moment:

Local $sHTMLStr,$sPlainTextStr

$sHTMLStr='<html><head>'&@CRLF & " <title>Page Title</title>"&@CRLF & _

' <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">'&@CRLF & _

"</head>"&@CRLF & "<body>"&@CRLF & "<h1>Headline Text</h1>"&@CRLF & _

"<p>This is a paragraph showing the formatting possibilities using the "&@CRLF & _

'<a href="http://sites.google.com/site/ascend4ntscode/clipputhtml">_ClipPutHTML() functions</a>.'&@CRLF& _

" The regular modifiders, such as <strong>bold</strong>, <i>italics</i>, and <u>underlines</u> work as usual,"&@CRLF& _

" just like all other HTML formatting.</p>"&@CRLF & "<p>Â </p>"&@CRLF & _

"<p><strong>Here's an example list:</strong></p>"&@CRLF & "<ul>"&@CRLF & _

" <li>List <i>item</i> #1.</li>"&@CRLF & _

" <li>List <i>item</i> #2.</li>"&@CRLF & _

' <li>List <i>item</i> #3 with a <a href="http://www.google.com">Hyperlink</a></li>'&@CRLF & _

"</ul>"&@CRLF & "</body>"&@CRLF & "</html>"

$sPlainTextStr="Headline Text"&@CRLF&@CRLF& _

"This is a paragraph showing the formatting possibilities using the _ClipPutHTML() functions."& _

"The regular modifiders, such as bold, italics, and underlines work as usual, just like all other HTML formatting."&@CRLF&@CRLF& _

" Here's an example list:"&@CRLF& _

" * List item #1."&@CRLF& _

" * List item #2."&@CRLF& _

" * List item #3 with a Hyperlink"&@CRLF

_ClipPutHTML($sHTMLStr,$sPlainTextStr)

- Example 'paste' output -

Headline Text

This is a paragraph showing the formatting possibilities using the _ClipPutHTML() functions. The regular modifiders, such as bold, italics, and underlines work as usual, just like all other HTML formatting.

Here's an example list:

  • List item #1.
  • List item #2.
  • List item #3 with a Hyperlink

      Hi,
      At work we have some proprietary website, users have to login to.
      I have "made" an autoit executable to start IE, go the website, login, so the user do not have input their credentials every time.
      By NDA I am not allowed disclosed the URL of the website nor the login credentials
      So I made a fake website and an autoitscript to illustrate my question.
      #include <ie.au3> $oIE = _IECreate ("about:blank", 0, 1, 1, 1) $HWND = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "hwnd") WinActivate ($HWND,"") WinSetState($HWND, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) _IENavigate ($oIE, "http://demo.rkilinc.nl",1) The above start my demo website. The actual website has some links in the footer that I do not want most people click on.
      I contacted the developers of the website and they are thinking of making an option to configure what links to show in the footer, but they said it's not a high priority for them.
       
      I discovered, that by click F12 and deleting the <footer> element the footer is delete from the live page view (until the page is reloaded off course)
      I want to automate the removal of the footer, without using things like send().
      I tried getting the footer with _IEGetObjById and deleting it with _IEAction, but that didn't work.
      Does any one has an idea how I could delete the footer directly from view with an autoit script?
      TIA, Jem.

      Programs like Ditto are a great augmentation to the Windows clipboard where it keeps a list of items you copy and paste and you can go back to days, weeks, months later. It also comes in handy for multiple copied items you need to paste over and over again.
      https://sourceforge.net/projects/ditto-cp/
      Windows 10 also now has a clipboard history capability (though not as robust, I think, as Ditto).
      https://www.windowscentral.com/how-use-new-clipboard-windows-10-october-2018-update
      I would like to simulate this type of clipboard history into my own apps independent of Windows' clipboard, but I haven't a clue as to where to begin.
      Thank you in advance for any suggestions, examples, shelved codes. ☺

      I'm creating a tool which automatically saves screenshots.  I've found that some images appear corrupt after saving.  I've narrowed the source down to screenshots taken from within an RDP session via the Ctrl+Alt+Plus (PrtScn equivalent) and Ctrl+Alt+Minus (Alt+PrtScn equivalent) key combos.
      Here is the example code:
      #include <ClipBoard.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> If _ClipBoard_IsFormatAvailable($CF_BITMAP) Then ConsoleWrite("+Bitmap found on Clipboard" & @CRLF) If Not _ClipBoard_Open(0) Then MsgBox(16, "Error", "_ClipBoard_Open failed") Exit EndIf $hClipboardImage = _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_BITMAP) _ClipBoard_Close() _GDIPlus_Startup() $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hClipboardImage) $sCLSID = _GDIPlus_EncodersGetCLSID("JPG") _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFileEx($hBitmap, @ScriptDir & "\" & TimerInit() & "_Clipboard_Image.jpg", $sCLSID, 0) _GDIPlus_BitmapDispose($hBitmap) _GDIPlus_Shutdown() Else MsgBox(48, @ScriptName, "No Bitmap found on Clipboard") EndIf If you copy a local window to the clipboard via Alt+PrtScn the above works fine.  If you copy a window in an RDP session via Ctrl+Alt+Minus it saves the image, but the left-hand edge appears to contain a few pixels sliced off the right-hand side of the bitmap (see two attached images for examples; one good, one bad).  If you paste directly into MSPaint, the image appears correctly, so the clipboard contents is good. It seems to be the process of converting the bitmap handle to an image file via GDIPlus which corrupts it (though I may be wrong about this).
      I've tried inspecting the contents of the clipboard via the _ClipBoard_EnumFormats example and I've noticed the clipboard from the RDP session contains a couple more formats;
      Local:
      Clipboard formats ..: 3 Clipboard format 1 .: Bitmap Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 RDP:
      Clipboard formats ..: 5 Clipboard format 1 .: DataObject Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 Clipboard format 4 .: Ole Private Data Clipboard format 5 .: Bitmap However the _ClipBoard_GetDataEx function is specifying the $CF_BITMAP constant for the format, which both instances contain, so I'm not sure the extra formats have any impact?
      I've tried using a combination of _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_DIB) and _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory in an effort to write the binary directly to a file, instead of using a bitmap handle, however this doesn't appear to work and just returns a zero and doesn't set @error to anything, which isn't covered in the help file (a failure should return a zero and set the @error level to something).
      I've hunted around the forums and tried everything I can think of. I can normally figure most things out without posting but I've been dipping in and out of this script for a few months now and have finally thrown in the towel and must ask you guys for help, which isn't a decision I take lightly.  Your help is, as always, greatly appreciated.

      Is there any UDF to remove all anchor tags <a> with a particular class (and also its sub elements completely) in a html document.
      Here the classes are browse and breadcrumbs
      Like in the below image.


       
      I am not able to find that option in IE.au3
       
      Please suggest.
