Ouch :wtf:

I'm looking into it. The URL is still there, and it's accessible via ACC, so it looks promising :think:

Big thanks to Kudos for the heads up :thumbup:

Could this script be modified to get the Status Bar information (or whatever it's called now) at the bottom left of most browsers?

No, sorry. The status bar is not available via the API this script is based on.

BUT it's trivial to access it via JavaScript: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc ... dow/status

Is there a way to get a list of all browser tabs open in chrome?

Hello all,

I was using this great script in one of my program and have been informed that it had some problems in Firefox.

Atnbueno, did you make progress on the fix? Any hint ?

JnLlnd or Jeeswg : any new info on the bug?

Thanks! ;)

EDIT : I have just tested JnLlnd's script in previous page and the URL in Firefox 58 seem to work well (I have tried 5/6 urls).
So does someone still have a problem? Can we have a URL example of where it was failing?

I retested it with 57.0.4 and upgraded to 58.0.1 today and found no URL not working with both versions. This is kind of good news :-)

Is it possible to have this code activate a hotstring only if the tab URL contains a string?

Ultimately I'd like to know the same thing, as it would save me some lines of code in order to determine which page I was on, and not have to eliminate each option.

I am really at the learning phase of AHK, and am still figuring out the big stuff, but, my goal would be to use the functionality in my YouTubeTV script. There are, currently, essentially 4 different URLs used

youtubetv.com/
youtbetv.com/library
youtubetv.com/live
youtubetv.com/watch/gobbledlygoop (where the gobbledygoop is, apparently, random text related to the currently playing live video)

When not on the "watch" (live video) URL, I'd like for my MCE Remote direction buttons (right, left, up, down) to move the mouse in the appropriate direction, using "MouseMove", but, when on the "watch" screen, it will use those buttons for video control (Left - jump back / Right / jump forward).

Of course, since the "gobbledygoop" is there, I'll have to code for all the OTHER screens, unless I can parse or test the variable.

Could it be done with an "if Var contains" statement?

if sURL contains watch
Send Right
else
MouseMove 100, 0, 1, R
Return

Anyway, thanks for the awesome work! As I learn more, this is going to be extremely handy!

Works like a champ. I'm very happy!

Right::
{
sURL := GetActiveBrowserURL()
WinGetClass, sClass, A
if sURL contains watch
send l
else
MouseMove 250, 0, 1, R
Return
}

Thanks atnbueno for your awesome work! Don't guess you'd have any idea how to SEND a URL to Chrome while in Kiosk mode, would you? :D

Hey Antonio,

I was wondering if you know how to make your script work for Brave browser - https://brave.com/

Thanks!

I have the same problem. The script doesn't work with Firefox v61.0.1. The row Acc_Init(), cChildren:=Acc.accChildCount, Children:=[] causes the Error 0x800706B5 - Die Schnittstelle ist unbekannt (The interface is unknown). Is there a solution, please ?

in chrome 67 and 68 if you have a new tab window as the main window this wont work

to test click to get a new tab in chrome and then run to get list of windows, u will get blank even if you have 5 other regular websites opne
