This fails with syntax error on “PageTitle = oIE~document~title” on the new release.

Went back to 4.1.1 and it works.

Several of my apps failed. Could not get the “document” object.

url = 'https://www.wireless.att.com/olam/dashboardAction.olamexecute'

oIE = .OLEObject~New("InternetExplorer.Application")
oIE~Visible = .True
oIE~Top = 1
oIE~Left = 1
oIE~Width = 1000
oIE~Height = 1000

oIE~navigate(url)

Do 600 While oIE~readyState < 4 | oIE~busy = 1
Call Syssleep 0.1
End

PageTitle = oIE~document~title

Say Page PageTitle

    Hi Gary,

    Can you add what the Windows version and IE versions you are using. Also explicitly state if both the failing case and the successful case are on the same operating system using the same version of IE.

    Thanks.

    Also, can you add the exact print out of the syntax error.

     
  • Windows 7, 64 bit. IE 10. Yes, it is the same Windows and IE. I installed Rexx 4.1.3 and it failed. I uninstalled Rexx 4.1.3 and installed 4.1.1 and it works.

     
  • Had to reinstall 4.1.3.

    16 *-* PageTitle = oIE~document~title
    

    Error 97 running C:\Rexx\My Tools\Retirement Tools\Fail.rex line 16: Object method not found
    Error 97.1: Object "an OLEObject" does not understand message "TITLE"

    Press ENTER key to exit...

     
  • Also WORKS on 4.1.2 Rexx.

    The problem here is that Internet Explorer, for whatever reason, does not follow Microsoft's guidelines for OLE.

    It's too bad you hadn't tested the beta during the 2 months it was available, this could have been fixed before the release.

     
  • Normally, I would test, but I was hiking the Appalachian Trail for 2 months. Just got back.

    Well, I certainly can't fault you there. ;-) Hiking the Appalachian Trail, that's something I envy.

     
  • Just back from two months on the Appalachian Trail.

    No really, able to test.
