First I'll explain what i want to do. I want to write a script that will click on a link if its there and if its not there then it will click a different link... Can someone please Explain how to do it using the easiest way for a newb ;)

Eg. lets say i go to addictinggames.com and then i wanna search for a game and if the game isn't there then click a different link and then search that page for that link... and i would need the script to loop.

so if you can please explain this in the easiest way possible i owuld be a happy camper... and if you are gonna write a sample script could you pt notes in that say like: ;Link to search for

or

;Link To click if first link isn't found

I suggest you check out the IE Automation UDF Library

The primary function you'll want is _IEClickLinkByText -- it returns 1 if it finds your link to click on, 0 if not. You can then do other processing based on the result.

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?
