Help with ClipGet()

7 posts in this topic

Hello everybody, i'm new to AutoIt (started using it today), and i'm making a simple bot to auto task some of my work.

I have done 80% of the script, now i need one last help to finish it. The script im making is to google something, and as the google sites positions change i gotta be sure when clicking a link, so i think that if i copy the link to clipboard and then add a function like "If link contains x word then click it", this function will check if the link in the clipboard contains "x" word and then act else go to next action.. Something like that... I dont really know if ClipGet() will work, so if anyone could help me.. Thanks for your time.

There is a UDF (User defined function) for interacting with Internet Explorer that might be more reliable than clicking on the links.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

If ClipGet() = 'x' Then Msgbox(64,'Info','Matched')

Clipget() will only retrieve text

BTW it would be better to use the Href property to get the Link URL as suggested by BrewManNH

Can anyone just "simplify" this action for me:

#include
_IELinkClickByText(ByRef $o_object, $s_linkText [, $i_index = 0 [, $f_wait = 1]])

I think this will work for me, Thanks once more.
