Need a help in _IELinkClickByText function

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

I am new to AUTOIT and i doubt this would be a silly doubt to ask ,but as i was not able to figure it out for more than a day I am asking here

I'm having trouble in using _IELinkclickbytext function .I am trying to click a link with the following html syntax but not able to do.


<span class="actionLinks ">
<a class="actionItemName" href="/console/analyze/addtoquickanalysis.do?id=26041672&structureid=SYS&appid=2279" title="Add to Quick Analysis">CPU <wbr></wbr>Util<wbr></wbr>izat<wbr></wbr>ion <wbr></wbr>%</a>

Auto IT code I used


Local $sMyString = "CPU"
Local $oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink In $oLinks
    Local $sLinkText = _IEPropertyGet($oLink, "innerText")
    If StringInStr($sLinkText, $sMyString) Then
        _IEAction($oLink, "click")


Can anyone help me where i am wrong.

Your thread title mentions _IELinkClickByText, but that isn't in your code. Also, you didn't explain what didn't work in the code. Did it not find the link? Were there any errors shown in the output window? Etc.

Also, have you checked to see if the site uses Frames?
