IE DOM help please

3 posts in this topic

When I try to run the following code I get the following error, any help would be greatly appreciated.

$oIE = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")  
With $oIE
    .Menubar = False
    .Statusbar = False
    .Toolbar = False
    .Addressbar = False
        .Resizable = False
    .Height = "500"
    .Width = "700"
EndWith 
$oIE.document.Title = "Test Title"  
$oIE.document.Body.Scroll = "no"  
With $oIE.document.Parentwindow.Screen
    $oIE.Left = ($oIE.document.Parentwindow.Screen.AvailWidth  - $oIE.Width ) / 2
    $oIE.Top  = ($oIE.document.Parentwindow.Screen.Availheight - $oIE.Height) / 2 
EndWith  
While $oIE.Busy
     Sleep (100) 
WEnd  
$oIE.document.body.InnerHTML = "<b>hello</b>" 
$oIE.visible = 1

Error returned is:

$oIE.document.Title = "Test Title"

$oIE.Document^ ERROR

Answered my own question, for those who want the fix (simple but overlooked)

$oIE = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
With $oIE
    .navigate("about:blank")        ;<-----This was the fix, you must have content loaded for DOM to be available
    .visible = 0
    .silent = 1
    .Menubar = 0
    .Statusbar = 0
    .Toolbar = 0
    .Addressbar = 0
        .Resizable = 0
    .Height = "500"
    .Width = "700"
    .document.body.InnerHTML = "<b>hello</b>"
    .document.body.scroll = "no"
    .document.body.style.border = 0
        .document.Title = "Test Title"
    .Left = ($oIE.document.Parentwindow.Screen.AvailWidth  - $oIE.Width ) / 2
    .Top = ($oIE.document.Parentwindow.Screen.Availheight - $oIE.Height) / 2
    .visible = 1
EndWith

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?
