$hog = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "button")

For $x In $hog

Msgbox(0, "", $x.name)



This loop finds two buttons with names on the page.

Button 1 and Button 2... I seem to be missing something, how can I capture the second button name as I have tried the following code...

$y = $hog[0].name

$z = $hog[1].name

This is the variable I want..

I must be formatting it wrong... as the loop above displays what I am looking for, and I want to capture the second one in the variable $z but it does not work... what have I done wrong?

When the for loop above runs it displays the name of the two buttons... perfectly...

But I cannot seem to capture them. The links I am using throw an error.

Thanks for the suggestion, but the name changes on every load so I do not have the name, I have to wait for to load to find out what it is..

However I find this works but is cumbersome.

$hog = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "button")

For $x In $hog

$dat = $x.name



So what happens is when the loop finished $dat end up with the last variable in the iteration and that works fine, but only because the last one [0], [1] of the two items is the one I want so its still in $dat and I can use it ok, but what I really need is the format to grab it without the loop..

its something like $dat = $hog[1].name or $hog.name[1] but they don't seem to work.

Can anyone see my error?

$oButton1 = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "button", 0)

$oButton2 = _IETagNameGetCollection ($oIE, "button", 1)

ConsoleWrite("Button1: " & $oButton1.name & @CRLF)

ConsoleWrite("Button2: " & $oButton2.name & @CRLF)
