How to change OnEvent script in IE?

Recommended Posts


Hi guys.

I was just wondering, is there a way to change a on event script in ie object?

I'm using

to add an event, but how about reading and editing existing OnEvent script?


<a class="TRT" onclick="alert('script to be obtained,edited...!');
 href="#">link text</a>

Study this:

#include <IE.au3>

$sHTML = ""
$sHTML &= "<html><head></head><body><h1>Hello</h1><a class='TRT' onclick=""alert('script to be obtained,edited...!');"" href=""#"">link text</a></body></html>"

$oIE = _IECreate()

_IEDocWriteHTML($oIE, $sHTML)

$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink in $oLinks
    If StringInStr($oLink.outerhtml, "script to be obtained") Then
        $sId = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "uniqueid")

_IEHeadInsertEventScript($oIE, $sId, "onclick", "alert('foobar');")

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. 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?
