    VB6 and Selenium --> SeleniumBasic ?

    It seems the selenium can be used with VBA.


    So, can Selenium be used with VB6 ?

    Yes, you can use it from VB6, I have some projects that work with it. If you want some sample code just let me know. I use also Google Chrome so you need the wrapper and the Chromedriver for your Chrome version (https://googlechromelabs.github.io/chrome-for-testing/)

    I installed SeleniumBasic Yesterday, but for me a simple task to open a webpage resulted in a error, something as Class not registered !

    First of all you need to install Selenium wrapper and the chrome driver I've posted (choose the right version for your Chrome).

    You must add to your project the references for "Selenium Type Library" (under Project->References)

    And try a code like this:

    Code:
    Dim Chrome As new WebDriver
    Dim By As new Selenium.By
    Chrome.Get "https://www.yourpage.com"
    'for example you can look for a button css
    If Chrome.IsElementPresent(By.Css("button.btn.btn-secondary")) Then
    'do something
    End If
    ...

    The Chromedriver is ok, but the Selenium Wrapper: which one do you use ?

    The wrapper is the one you posted in your first post.

    Hi zx81sp

    Thank you.

    I could run the code now.


    I´ve also found an updated version for the wrapper see
    SeleniumBasic 3.141.0.0


    https://www.cnblogs.com/ryueifu-VBA/p/13661128.html



    Now I am facing some problems to trap errors. If Selenium gets an error, the vb code stops to run and display a message by default, The line "On Error Goto" does not work for this

    it,'s SeleniumBasic2.0Open source has the source code.But after I recompile, it will also cause frequent crashes and can not be registered for use.
    how to use it without register dll,setup?

    Selenium Basic 3.141, which has a lot of compatibility issues and often fails to install and use.

    The perfect way is to use a web socket connection yourself. The chrome debugging protocol, which does not require any SeleniumBasic wrappers, is the fastest and most stable,

    I use the older wrapper and since it works fine I never tried to find an updated one.

    I don't have errors with the wrapper but will take a look forcing one and will see if it can be controlled.
