Hello. I am new to this forum and I really need help with this macro on macro express.


Im trying to create a macro which finds a specific word on a web page.


If the word is found I want it to open another macro which I have made.


However, what I have done doesnt work as such.




Here's what I have:


Activate Window. "Windows Internet Explorer"


Then I want to click edit at the top of the web page. Select All


Clipboard Copy


Variable Set String %T1% from Clipboard


If Variable %T1% contains "word"


Macro Run: The "word" was found


End If



I cant get the macro to find a word on a web page and then open another macro which I have.


Should I use If Control %C1% ( %C1% being word, for example. ) Visible or If Variable %T1% contains "word"

It sounds like you're on the right track, where is it failing?


I don't understand your last comment about using controls.


BTW you can and should used named variables and divorce yourself from the old ME# variables.

I managed to complete this macro without having to use a variable. In the end, I decided to use If Clipboard rather than If Variable or If Control.


< ACTIVATE2:word - Windows Internet Explorer><WAITWIN2:000010:000000:word - Windows Internet Explorer><SPEED:00001><MMS2:57,69><LDN><LUP><MSD:1295><MMS2:69,142><LDN><LUP><CLIPC><IFOTH2:16:1:word.><MACRUN2:word.><ENDIF>




Oh and thank you very much for your interest Cory. Have a great day!

To start the macro you can select from "Activations" looking for "window title" [Picture]


To optimize your code use the key Strg.+A to select all text from webside without mouse click.


Here is the optimized code:

<WAIT FOR WINDOW TITLE Title="word - Windows Internet Explorer" Partial="TRUE" Wildcards="FALSE" Indefinite="FALSE" Hours="0" Minutes="10" Seconds="0"/>
<DELAY Flags="\x02" Time="300"/>
<COMMENT Value="Select all text at the window"/>
<TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<CONTROL>a"/>
<DELAY Flags="\x02" Time="300"/>
<COMMENT Value="Copy and check the text"/>
<DELAY Flags="\x01" Time="1"/>
<IF CLIPBOARD Option="\x01" Text="word." CaseSensitive="TRUE"/>
<MACRO RUN Use_ID="FALSE" Name="word." ID="-1" Wait="TRUE"/>


Why do you want to start another macro if you can do everything in one?
