[jawsscripts] Re: Get IE Document from window handle

Adding on to Doug's suggestion.
You can also store the object variable in default as a global so you can
reference it.
One thing I have noticed is this seems to work at the window level, but
trying to store a pointer to a more specific item on the page, such as a div
or frame, gets lost/erased when the page updates, even if the page just does
a refresh.
So you have to start at the window, and navigate the DOM to find the
information you're seeking each time.

That should work to get the DOM for a page that you're opening from a
script, but not so much for a page that's already open. For that, you can
setFocus() to the window, grab the IEGetCurrentDocument() result, and
setFocus() back to where it was before, which you can of course save in
advance with getFocus(). This is not as clean as would be a new optional
hwnd parameter to IEGetCurrentDocument(), but it at least works where you
really need it. I recommend use of speechOff/speechOn and maybe a pause()
after the return of focus, to avoid extra speech during this little stunt.

This will help in getting the window handle of an IE window using the DOM.
Var
Int trigger,

("internetexplorer.application", 0) else let o = CreateObject

o.navigate("www.blindtunes.net/currentVersion.htm")
while trigger != 1
let safety = safety+1
Delay (10, 1)
let theIE = o.hWND
if theIE != 0 then
let trigger = 1
endif
if safety == 10 then
let trigger = 1
endif
endwhile

This should help.

Unfortunately I don't think so.

Hi all,

Just wondering if in JAWS 13, FS has finally introduced a function to return
the DOM of an IE window by handle.

Thanks for your kind attention,
Kamil
