Editing a post in Click a link on a webpage in IE

Recommended Posts


Hi I like the potential....

IN scrips and scraps;

Click on Links

It does not still find exact matches, though! -or ? don't know the syntax;

    $doc = $obj.document

   $links = $doc.links

   $found = 0

   For $link in $links

      $linkText = $link.outerText

      If ($linkText = $searchText) Then

EDIT - I thought this script had a problem; but I see it is just that I don't know how to retrieve the text items from the variables - or ? from the function; I cannot use "return" from the function to seem to get any text?

Can anybody please help? *** -I will post on Support as well, thanks

Best, Randall

Hmmm... perhaps I was not clear enough on what that function does? It is not expected to return anything useful... it is expected to simply click the link for you as though you had done it with the mouse...

Do I misunderstand your question or do you misunderstand the intent of the script?

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?
