VBScript IE Window Update

Posted on 2009-05-12

Hi,

Having some problem with updating IE windows with a VBScript! Basically I have 3 IE windows - window 1 launches window 2 and window 3, when window 3 is open window 2 closes. The problem I am having is then when the command to open the window is launched I can no longer reference the previous window to set values (see <HERE> below). Any ideas?

Michael
Do While (objExplorer.Document.Body.All.OKClicked.Value = "")
 
	Wscript.Sleep 250                 
		 
	'If BCOP is launched...
	If objExplorer.Document.Body.All.OKClicked.Value = "BCOP" Then
 
		<HERE> objExplorer.Document.Body.All.OKClicked.Value = ""
		Set objExplorer2 = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
		objExplorer2.Navigate "about:blank"   
		objExplorer2.ToolBar = 0
		objExplorer2.StatusBar = 0
		objExplorer2.Left = (intHorizontal - 600) / 2
		objExplorer2.Top = (intVertical - 100) / 2
		objExplorer2.Width = 600
		objExplorer2.Height = 100 
		objExplorer2.Visible = 1     
		objExplorer2.Document.Body.Scroll = "no"
		objExplorer2.Document.Body.Style.Cursor = "wait"
		objExplorer2.Document.Title = "Opening the Barnardo's IT Code of Practice"
		objExplorer2.Document.Body.InnerHTML = "<face=Calibri><b> Please wait whilst the Barnardo's IT Code of Practice is opened </b>"
		BCOPOpen = "False"		
 
		'Launch Barnardo's IT Code of Practice
		Set objExplorer3 = WScript.CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application", "IE_")
		objExplorer3.Navigate "file:" & strDestination
		objExplorer3.ToolBar = 0
		objExplorer3.StatusBar = 0
		objExplorer3.Visible = 1
	
		Do while (BCOPOpen = "False")
			Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2") 
			Set colProcess = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process")
 
			For Each objProcess in colProcess
				If (objProcess.Name = "AcroRd32.exe") Then
					BCOPOpen = "True"
				Else
				End If
			Next
	
			Wscript.Sleep 500
			<HERE> objExplorer2.Document.Body.InnerHTML = objExplorer2.Document.Body.InnerHTML & "."
		Loop
 
		objExplorer2.Quit     
Loop

Solution should be very easy. Just create variables before the entire DO - LOOP construct and assign them EMPTY values, then during the window opening sequence assign values to those variables that can then be called upon at any time in the script. Something like below:

sVariable1 = Empty
sVariable2 = Empty

Do While (objExplorer.Document.Body.All.OKClicked.Value = "")
      ...
      ...
      If something happened here Then
            sVariable2 = "SomeValue"
      End If
      ...
      ...
Loop


Hope that helps you.
