#1767 closed Bug (Rejected)

_IETableWriteToArray does not handle Rowspan, ColSpan, and strips tags inside data fields

Reported by: ibigpapa@… Owned by: Gary
Milestone: Component: Standard UDFs
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


UDF Function:



The cells that are spanned are left blank.

  1. Repeat data from Colspan cell into the cell(s) it spans
  2. Insert a token into the spanned cell(s) that show it was spanned allowing the user to decide what to do the with the cell

The row(s) that are spanned are filled with data from the incorrect column. This results in column fields being misaligned.

  1. Copy data from rowspan cell into cells it spans
  2. Insert a token into spanned cells that show it was spanned allowing the user to decide what to do the with the cell

Strips Tags:
html tags inside the <td> or <th> fields are stripped. This can result in a table nested inside another one to be lost.
Parameter to give the user a choice to strip fields.

Reproduction Variables:

I have attached a script that will show the issue and display the array results in a message box. Tested on current Beta and Stable versions of AutoIt.

Version Tested:
AutoIt Stable :
AutoIt Beta :
IE.au3 Stable : 2.4-1
IE.au3 Beta : 2.4-1

I would be happy to help develop additions after reviewing development guidelines.
