What to do when a link isn't a link?

Recommended Posts

fleone

I have a table of data that is generated by a javascript. Each row of the table highlights on hover and shows a GIF that appears to be a link to the specific data. When I look at the properties of the link, it is just an image (/controlPanel/images/actions-hover-left.gif) and the only thing I can find that seems like it is a link is an onclick="javascript:gradeAssignment('nnnnnn');return false; **The 'nnnnnn' is a variable, different for each "assignment" that has been submitted for a grade.

The original version of this script just called a link using IEGetObjectbyName, and since the grading program was updated, it isn't able to find that link.

So, can anyone tell me what I have to do in order to launch that javascript?

Thanks!

I tried adding the Function "IEEval" to my AutoIT script and have to admit I have no idea what it is supposed to do.

It looks like Return $o_object.document.parentwindow.eval ($s_eval) is supposed to supply the onclick=javascript:gradeAssignment as a variable?

Then I should replace what was submitting the mouse click before with a call to this function?

I am not even sure of what I don't know at this point ;)

The event onclick="javascript:gradeAssignment doesn't occur until a tablerow in the assignment table is activated with a mouse over.

So I guess what I need to do is know how to "trigger" the javascript:gradeAssignment each time the assignmentsGrade.asp window is opened, or the focused window.

Is there any other information that I can provide that would be beneficial in figuring this out?

Thanks so much for the help so far. I just don't know if it is what I need....

You'll likely need to get a reference to the gif or table cell and then call _IEAction, click

I think I know what you mean, but I also think I have isolated the root of my issue. What I have found is that until one of the table rows is highlighted, the onclick=javascript:gradeAssigment isn't available. Until that mouseover occurs, there is no item to select.

So, what I now have to work out is how to activate the tablerow in such a fashion as to present the onclick=javascript:gradeAssignment event. Then have that continue to happen as each assignment is graded and the window changes.
