is it possible to send click on random links on a website?

3 posts in this topic

I have a website which has 10 links.

I want AutoIT to click on them randomly

for example, Link1, link2, link3 ...

it will click on link4, then sleep, then click on link 1

what I did :-

_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "link1")
sleep(1000)
_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "link2")

So, I dont want to write for link 3 or link 4 and so on continuously.

is it possible to do so?

Do you want to cycle through those links or really randomize it?

For $i = 1 To 8 Step 1
    _IELinkClickByText($oIE, "link" & $i)
    Sleep(1000)
Next

The one above will click link1 - link8

For $i = 1 To 8 Step 1
    _IELinkClickByText($oIE, "link" & Random(1, 8, 1))
    Sleep(100)
Next

This one will click a random link between the numbers 1 and 8. And that 8x in a row.

Hi...thanks a lot for your reply. I think I missed one part... I want to cycle through those links ... :) randomilze not so necessary for me

After clicking on Link1, script must go back to previous page, then it will send click on link2

Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.google.com")
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://mypage.us/demo")
For $i = 1 To 2 Step 1
    _IELinkClickByText($oIE, "link" & $i)
    Sleep(10000)
Next
_IEQuit($oIE)
http://mypage.us/demo => this page has all the links.

So, in this script, its opening google, going to my site, clicking on Link1

but not going back to my site to click on Link2 and IE gets closed :(

Sorry I missed the part :( so ...need your help :(

 

Ok...so far I did this:-

Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.google.com")
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://mypage.ys/demo")
For $i = 1 To 10 Step 1
    _IELinkClickByText($oIE, "link" & Random(1, 10, 1))
    Sleep(10000)
    Next
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://mypage.ys/demo")
For $i = 1 To 2 Step 1
    _IELinkClickByText($oIE, "link" & Random(1, 10, 1))
    Sleep(10000)
 Next
Sleep(10000)

How do I keep it looping? :(

 

Ok... I fixed this

 

for random

#include <IE.au3>
Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.google.com")
For $i = 1 To 25 Step 1
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://mywebsite.us")
    _IELinkClickByText($oIE, "link" & Random(1, 25, 1))
    Sleep(10000)
    Next

for 1 by 1

#include <IE.au3>
Local $oIE = _IECreate("www.google.com")
For $i = 1 To 25 Step 1
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://mywebsite.us")
    _IELinkClickByText($oIE, "link" & $i)
    Sleep(10000)
    Next

Thanks you for your help :)
