Opening A Web Site Without Loading The Images?

Macro Express can only use the functions of a program to manipulate it. If this feature is available in IE then you should be able to get Macro Express to do it by using the Internet Explorer features. If this is not an Internet Explorer feature, than Macro Express cannot do it.

Hello Jason

 

Thanks for your reply!

I googled hoping to find a Command-Line Parameter to tell IE not to download the images.. But it seems to be there isn't.

 

Anyway, it was only to make the web load faster.. As Im using the "Wait for Web Page" ME Feature the waiting can be quite long because the page in question has a lot of little gifs and jpgs!

 

Thanks again,

 

Strathos

Hello again

 

Just if anyone needed to do the same. I found a simple way to do this.

 

You can set IE not to dowload the images of a web in its settings.

IE saves its settings to the windows registry!

 

So, all I had to do is find where they were written.

I found it on a Chain called "Display Inline Images" placed somewhere deep in the registry.

 

Then I made a macro like this one:

 

//Set Show images "No"

Variable Set String %T98% "no"

Write Registry String: "Display Inline Images"

 

 

//Set Show images "yes"

Variable Set String %T98% "yes"

Write Registry String: "Display Inline Images"

Hello Joe

 

I always knew that I could change settings within IE. I just didnt want ME to go to Tools->Internet Options->Advanced and Multimedia Twice every time I needed that webpage to load (after all it was to make things quicker).

 

The solution I posted is basically changing the IE settings writing on the Window's Registry

 

Thanks for your time,

 

Strathos.
