Embedded IE Frame in GUI

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone know what the syntax would be for loading an embedded IE Frame in a GUI that uses IE8 Compatibility View?

I have the code to load a normal gui with ie frame but not sure about loading the frame in IE8 that uese Compatibility View?

Thanks,

GD

Say more about what you are trying to do. It can be controlled in the HTML source with:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />

I have a small web based box/server "http://192.168.1.127/home.html" that will only work with IE8 if you use Compatibilty View from Page Drop Down in IE. I am trying to make a simple gui that checks if IE8 is present on the machine the script is run on and if it detects IE8 I need it to create the embedded ie frame using compatibility view. If it detects IE7 then compatibility view is not needed.

hope this helps.

thanks for the reply,

GD

Thanks I will read that msdn blog and see what I can come up with. I am not so sure on how to format the syntax for HTML source in autoit though. where in the code would I put your sample from above?

still reading........

Something like this:

IEHeadInsertMeta($oIE, "X-UA-Compatible", "IE=EmulateIE7")

Func IEHeadInsertMeta($o_object, $s_httpEquiv = 'Content-Type', $s_content = 'text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1')
 $o_head = _IETagNameGetCollection($o_object, "head", 0)
 $o_element = $o_object.document.createElement('meta')
 $o_element.httpEquiv = $s_httpEquiv
 $o_element.content = $s_content
 $o_head.appendChild($o_element)
 Return 1
EndFunc

If you look at the codebox in your post you will see that the last line was clipped. It's a problem with the height settings for codeboxes which Jon hasn't managed to fix yet although it will be fine if they click "popup" to get the code. I realize that almost anyone can figure out to add an EndFunc line to the code displayed but I thought you might want the heads up. Solution is to add a comment line below your code or better, above AND below.

Thanks George, although it looks fine here in IE8 -- is it unique to certain browsers?

Looks fine in Opera 9.64 too, so it's probably another Firefox bug (wouldn't be the first bug in FF on this new forum software)

Not sure if it's browser related or not, might even be a screen resolution issue. I'm using IE7 at the moment but I can boot into Win 7 later and have another look in IE8. Although there is still a drastic difference in the screen resolution between My XP and My Win 7 so it might not tell me anything anyway. I do know that the IPB main page is messed at 1024x768 so I'm pretty sure they are not testing at all resolutions.
