IE Click Page Location

Is there a way to click a given area on a web page?

I know many functions (_IEAction, _IEImgClick, etc.) that could theoretically do this, however, I have a page that has multiple div's nested.

I can identify the area (i.e. the "top" and "left") of where I would like to click through finding the background image of a div on a lower z-index. However, clicking that specific div will not do anything: I have to simulate a click on an "unknown" div that is layered above it on the z-index. These divisions do not have id's or names, just some styling in the outerhtml.

Is there a way to click on that "area"?

Below is an example of how the html of the divisions look for an "instance" I would like to be able to click:

<DIV style="BACKGROUND-IMAGE: url(http://url_removed/resource/webfrontend/townlayer/building_harbour.png); Z-INDEX: 40016; POSITION: absolute; WIDTH: 128px; BACKGROUND-POSITION: 0% 0%; HEIGHT: 128px; TOP: 1232px; LEFT: 2176px" Step="5" Frame="1"></DIV>
<DIV style="BACKGROUND-IMAGE: url(http://url_removed/resource/webfrontend/townlayer/animations/anim_harbour_01/animseq_harbour_01.png); Z-INDEX: 40016; POSITION: absolute; WIDTH: 128px; BACKGROUND-POSITION: 0px 50%; HEIGHT: 128px; TOP: 1232px; LEFT: 2176px" Step="4" Frame="0"></DIV>
<DIV style="Z-INDEX: 990000; POSITION: absolute; WIDTH: 128px; HEIGHT: 80px; TOP: 1280px; LEFT: 2176px" id=69649></DIV>
<DIV style="BACKGROUND-IMAGE: url(http://url_removed/resource/webfrontend/ui/building_level_display_bgr.png); Z-INDEX: 500000; POSITION: absolute; WIDTH: 24px; HEIGHT: 24px; TOP: 1322px; LEFT: 2229px" id=69649>
<DIV style="POSITION: absolute; TEXT-ALIGN: center; WIDTH: 24px; HEIGHT: 24px; COLOR: #ffbd78; VERTICAL-ALIGN: middle; TOP: 1px; FONT-WEIGHT: bold; LEFT: -1px">7</DIV></DIV>

_IEPropertyGet has an example of getting coordinates and then using MouseMove. Use it as a guide and then use MouseClick instead.

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?
