clicking on a table link in IE

4 posts in this topic

I looking to see if someone might be able to help.

I have a webpage that appears to have links but they are actually inside of a table. I tried to use _IELinkClickByText and _IEImgClick but neither one worked. Attached is a sample of the source and a screenshot of the page. Any help would be appreciated.

As you point out, they are not links... they are text inside <SPAN> tags with onclick Javascript events.

So, something like this:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach("Microsoft Certificate Services")
$sMatch = "Server Authentication Certificate (Monday July 24 2006 4:28:41 PM)"
$oSpans = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "span")
For $oSpan in $oSpans
    ConsoleWrite($oSpan.innerText & @CR)
    If $oSpan.innerText = $sMatch Then
        ConsoleWrite("Found It" & @CR)
        _IEAction($oSpan, "click")
    EndIf
Next

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?

Thanks. I'll give it a try ... how do I go about making a change to my id. I looked around but couldn't find the right option.

Send a PM to one of the moderators and they can change it for you. :whistle:
