Re: [SUGGESTION] TRY CATCH OR ONERROR IMPLEMENTATION

Nice idea. The Imacros folks need to give us at least a little programming abilities inside the macro. If would be good if you could tell what was happening while the macro was playing instead of having to wait until it finished.

Re: Imacros Brower causes Internet Explorer to open

I have not tried the version 7 but I think I have fixed the problem. In my code, after clicking on an HREF link it opens a new tab and I have a TAB T=2 command to go to that tab. I put a WAIT SECONDS=1 before the TAB command and have not seen the issue since. Pretty weird but will advise if it appea...

Re: Imacros Brower causes Internet Explorer to open

Thanks Tom, The macro goes to http://www.bbb.org and does a search for let's say "roofing contractors". The search will generate 20 entries per page (see attachment). The PHP code below is inside of a loop (1-20). I have stripped this down for readability. The last line of this code snippet is the p...

Re: Where can I start learning VBS, and iMacro scripting

iret is just a made up variable name. Most every function returns some value back to the calling program. It is usually a number but could also be a character string. The return code is usually used to indicate success or failure of the function. You save the return code into a variable and then che...

Re: Where can I start learning VBS, and iMacro scripting

There are a number of VB script examples on this website but my advice would be to use a different programming language. My favorite is PHP as it is free, has many add-ons and if much more feature rich than VBS. The general steps for scripting Imacros are: 1. iim1 = CreateObject("imacros") - this cr...

Re: Need Help with iimSet ()

Actually, it is working now. I have no idea what fixed it. Worked on this for hours and now it mysteriously works. Go figure.

Imacros Brower causes Internet Explorer to open

I'm running Imacros 6.5 Scripting Edition. During iimplay() inside of a scripted loop I am getting a new IE browser opening up on the screen. This seems to happen at random during the loop. Also, new tabs are opened on the IE instance. There is Javascript code on the website I'm testing with calls t...

Need Help with iimSet ()

I'm trying to use iimSet to set a variable in a macro created in memory using PHP.

"\r\n"; $iim1->iimSet ("NAME", "joe"); $iim1->iimPlay ($mymacro); The problem is tha...

How to know how many tabs are open

I've seen this addressed by a few others but no real solution. How do I know how many tab are open in the Imacros Browser. A particular website I use uses popups to notify the user about upcoming events, system status etc. The Imacros Browser opens a new tab for each one of these notifications. Ther...

Need Example Using PHP

I've been using VBScript for a while and want to migrate to PHP. In VB you can build your macro inline like this: MyMacroCode = "CODE:" MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode+"VERSION BUILD=5200814" + vbNewLine MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode+"TAB T=1" + vbNewLine MyMacroCode = MyMacroCode+"TAB CLOSEALLOTHERS" + vbNew...

Re: Any C Language samples available?

Thanks, but I'm looking for C as opposed to C++. Since C is not object oriented I wanted to see how the iim functions would be called.

Thanks,
