IE and dynamic html

Recommended Posts


Not sure what to search for after "dynamic html" turned up blank.

I click a link by text, next thing, some more html appears with another link I'd wish to click by test.

The html is not there when $oIE is created.

My question is What do I search for here to get me started?

Is there a way do load the current document again, with the new html in it, or something like that?

The dom will always 'refresh'.  You just need to 'load wait', or if it's truly html created by javascript (which means the html is fully loaded, as far as the browser knows, but dom objects are still being created), or something, you need to loop for your dom object to be present.

Note: my sig IEbyXPATH does a loop for the dom object you specify via xpath.  This works for both the load wait, and the dynamic html scenario...make sure you have an error handler active, since the DOM is not always quereyable.
