hello! ive have been trying to use IF statement in order to automate a web page. Apparent all the logic that goes through IF is considered TRUE by the compiler!



Local $oButtons = _IETagNameGetCollection($browser, "b")            ;gets all the Element with <b> tag
For $oButton In $oButtons                                            ; loops through the element with <b> tags
 If $oButton.outertext == "Next Chapter:" Or "Next Chapter: " Then    ;only click the elements with outertext "Next Chapter" 
_IEAction($oButton, 'click')                                           ; it clicks all the elements with <b> tags

It is because your if statement is badly written.  You should consider reading help file to understand the very basic of the language.

If $oButton.outertext = "Next Chapter:" Or $oButton.outertext = "Next Chapter: " Then

== is case sensitive, and applies only to strings while = is not.

No problem.  Enjoy your reading.  BTW be careful with the ending space when comparing string that can be tricky...

Use instead :

If StringStripWS($oButton.outertext, 3) = "Next Chapter:" Then
