How to getElementsByTagName?

Recommended Posts


Wonder why there is no command "getElementsByTagName" as in javascript..It seems like that would be a very useful tool.

so I am trying to modify the next best command.. can someone help me..

Func dolinks_now()
$oElements = _IETagNameAllGetCollection ($oIE)
For $oElement In $oElements
if $oElement.tagname = "h1" then msgbox(0, "", $oElement.innerText)
; Msgbox(0, "", $oElement.tagname & ":" & $oElement.innerText & @CRLF)

When I remove the ; from the msgbox.. that works fine but it gives all of the elements one by one..

What I want to do is extract just one set such as "H1" or "li" you get the idea.. I tried using the If statement but it fails..

Can someone point me to the correct command...

And then once I get all the "H1" if there is more than one can I pick it with something like.

if $oElement.tagname(2) = "h1" then msgbox(0, "", $oElement.innerText)

By adding say a 2 to get the 3rd H1 tag... 0,1,2

You didn't see _IETagNameGetCollection() right below _IETagNameAllGetCollection() in the help file?
