error handling, scripting commands

2 posts in this topic

Very new to AutoIt

I see two different 'types' (pasted below) of scripting examples:

? What is the difference bewteen the types? Example1 seems to be more 'object oreinted'? Can they both be used to navigate thru a website? Any advantages to one or the other?

? In the sample scripts I have looked through, I dont think I have seen any error handling (try... catch...). Is there an easy way to identify when a script is failing; ie. the website isnt as expected?

? Is there a way to loop through multiple open windows and close the windows that are not expected to be open?

---- example 1 ------------

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IE_Example ("https://ssl.accesstocare.on.ca/")

$oSubmit = _IEGetObjByName ($oIE, "submitExample")

_IEAction ($oSubmit, "click")

_IELoadWait ($oIE)

------example 2 ------------

run("C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE https://ssl.accesstocare.on.ca/")

Winwaitactive("Better Access To Care - Windows Internet Explorer")

Send("username{TAB}")

Send("password{TAB}{TAB}")

Send("{ENTER}")

WinWaitActive(">> Better Access To Care - Windows Internet Explorer")

send("{tab 15}") ;to be in the url location

Send("{ENTER}")

WinWaitActive("Home Page - Windows Internet Explorer")

send("{tab 17}") ;to be in the url location

Send("{ENTER}")

WinWaitActive("Report Selection - Windows Internet Explorer")

send("{tab 22}") ;to be in the url location

Send("{ENTER}")

WinWaitActive("Waitlist Entries Extract - Windows Internet Explorer")

Thanks for the help

Use the _IE* functions of the IE.au3 UDF (See help file examples) for browser stuff and the regular Win* functions for any Windows dialog boxes that come up.
