get a IE collection if images with a specific file name

Recommended Posts


I have many images on an IE page. there are 4 with file name "expand_btn.gif" and I want to get them into a collection and then click them all

I can get all images - _IEImgGetCollection ($oIE)

but how to get only the 4 I'm interested in and click them all

the code below just clicks the first one - clicking a button of above does change the structure of the page - do I have to redo the collection get?

If the page reloads after a click you need to get the collection again. You can use the optional Index parameter on the _IEImgGetCollection or you can loop through the collection with a a For Next loop as you see in the emaple for that function, sut use the .src property to check the image source.

It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
