After find text in Chrome using scripted CTRL + F, how to I find it's location & click it?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I need to click on a text that is not presented as a link, it looks like this:

<li><a id="send-message">Send Message</a></li>

The thing is, if it was a regular link, I can easily script sending keys to find the text and then send an enter key.

But it doesn't work, the only way to activate it is by clicking with the mouse.

Anyway I can send a click to the position it's found on? The only solution I can think of is using a software to compare 2 screenshots, one before selecting the text "Send message", the other inmediatedly after and seeing where most of the difference in the image is.

Any cleaner solution?

Have you looked into the UDF for Chrome?

I see that in its features it has:

_ChromeInputClickByName($objname, $index = 0, $timeout = 5)
_ChromeInputClickByType($type, $timeout = 5)

Which sounds like what you're attempting to do.

Ctrl f then click on the found text? - this function will click on the highlighted text you search for using ctrl F... This is setup to use the standard green highlight colour as my firefox not sure what version, think its latest firefox..

func highlightclick()
$coord = PixelSearch(0, 0, @DesktopWidth, @DesktopHeight, 3725432)
If Not @error Then
    MouseClick("left", $coord[0], $coord[1], 1, 0)

;script would be something like
send("Send Message")
