Getting a Flash Object from a website

Recommended Posts


Hello all,

I am trying to grab a Flash button from a web page. I am able to gather the name of the button but I don't know which command to use to click on that button.

I have been using:

$obj = _IEAttach ("My Uploads (2) - Windows Internet Explorer", "embedded")

But, this obviously doesn't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Flash objects are not drawn by the browser, and the controls in them are not part of the DOM. There isn't an API there for AutoIt to talk to. You either have to deal with clicking X/Y coordinates and ControlSend() used without a ControlID, or your're out of luck.
