Clicking a javascript link within an iFrame

Recommended Posts


Hi guys,

I have seen there is a bunch of similar topics, but for some reason (probably because I´m really a beginner with AutoIt and do not have other programming experience) what I have seen there didn´t really help me.

Here is what I have -

<iframe id="x" name="x1" title="x2" src="...">


<a class="yy" id="yy1" title="yy2" onkeydown="yy3" href="javascript:void(0)" target="" onclick="yy4">yy5</a>


End result - I need to click the link within the iframe.

I already tried ControlClick and _IELinkClickByText.. unfortunately this was in vain.

_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "yy5") resulted in

--> IE.au3 V2.4-0 Warning from function _IELinkClickByText, $_IEStatus_NoMatch

ControlClick - tried different combinations, nothing worked, without any errors in the log. Also, I could not get any information about the ControlID, because the AutoIT info tool is showing absolutely the same info for everything on the page..

I know that I probably have to use either _IEFrameGetObjByName or _IEFramgeGetCollection, but I am too dumb to implement this :)

The only few strings I have at the beginning are to open the page:

#include <IE.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate()

_IENavigate($oIE, "http://..")

I would really appreciate your help and suggestions!

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
