Hello all, 

i need to run a test on a web site: "http://www.equities.com/directories/hedge-funds"

so obviously i used:

Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.equities.com/directories/hedge-funds")

but now i need to click every box in the page (Total of 15) and click the one by one.

i cannot get the data to click them.

Can anyone help??

Thank in advance

Look in the help file for a function called: _IELinkGetCollection()

In the help there's the following example:

#include <IE.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>

Local $oIE = _IE_Example("basic")
Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
Local $iNumLinks = @extended

Local $sTxt = $iNumLinks & " links found" & @CRLF & @CRLF
For $oLink In $oLinks
    $sTxt &= $oLink.href & @CRLF
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Link Info", $sTxt)

Then you could just use the function _IEAction() to click each link.

Something like this maybe:

#include <IE.au3>

Local $oIE = _IECreate("http://www.equities.com/directories/hedge-funds")
Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)

For $oLink In $oLinks

I hope this makes sense.

PS: I haven't tested this script, but got a feeling it should work as is.
