Hi adegard, thanks for this, it looks a very promising RPA tool. The TagIE example for kijiji.it is particularly impressive. I have a couple of notes:
1) The github archive doesn't appear to have the icons needed. A GIF is below.
2) On my system, I needed to change references to i_view32 to i_view64, which is of course minor.
I really appreciate your work, and look forward to updates.
Regards,
burque505

@burque505 - Are you running the script with Unicode AHK?

Worked fine for me. I guess you might check that the file's encoding is UTF-8. All I did was download and extract the zip.

@hczx3 ha ok!

1) New Release on Github: Log Window Disable during FindClick (chrome automation examples)

2) I'm posting on Github a lot of script examples for marketing, job search, social network: https://gist.github.com/search?q=TagIE

You can share also your script for community :lol:

@kczx3, all I did was download the zip and run it. Result as above.
Changing the file encoding to UTF-8 in Sublime Text, it now looks like this:

Solved, for me anyway. @adegard, my hat's off to you. This is really good stuff.
I changed the font to Symbola at the top of the GUI section like so:

Code: Select all

;BUTTON
Gui Font, s20, Symbola
and presto:

Thank you so much @burque505 for your help and compliments!

New Release:
1) updated the font line

Code: Select all

Gui Font, s20, Symbola
as you find it works (could other user confirm they don't have issu again?)
2) checked 32 or 64 bits OS, to launch the correctly Irfanview and IE_selector

Please give a check, thank you!

your welcom @leosouza85!

I need to add some other functions like frames or mouse events.... for advanced users ... For now you can also use native DOM functions. There's another good tool I use from @Joe Glines, very complete for that: Web-Scraping-AutoHotkey-Writer1.07.ahk (http://the-automator.com/web-scraping-with-autohotkey/)

Thank @leosouza85, if you have a specific request, it's fine. I'll make my best.
Also feel free to post your automation script ideas on Gist ... Could be great for me and other...

New Release in GitHub:
- tclick("ele") ---> "ele" could be also the text of a link or button (copy Innertext with iWB2 tool) -

example:

Code: Select all

#include TagIE.ahk 

tnav("https://www.autohotkey.com/","")
 
tclick("Forums")
 
tclick("Scripts and Functions")

tclick("Guidelines: sharing code, no pranks, etc.")

ExitApp

Esc::ExitApp

Thanks again, @adegard, you are really working fast on this! What a nice tool.
Although Symbola works great for me, I suppose others may have default fonts that work just as well (I certainly don't).
Maybe this Symbola download link will help someone.
By the way, the example scripts has #Includes for TagIE.ahk and TagIE_Editor.ahk in another location, so of course I copied both to the 'examples' subdir.
