problem with IE getobjbyname and linkclickbytext

7 posts in this topic

when I use _IEgetobjbyname() and _IElinkclickbytext() they always answer 0, even if the link isnt there...

I have tried using @extended, and that turns up 0 no matter what also (doesn't matter whether the object/link is there or not). does anyone know how to fix this?

Example: I go to a web page with a link named "click here" and use _IElinkclickbytext() or _IEgetobjbyname() and it turns up 0... @extended turns up 0 also.

Then i go to a web page without the link named "click here" and then it does the same thing.

I cant see any problems :lmao::ph34r:

#include <IE.au3>

$a = _IECreate ("http://www.google.com")
$b = _IEFormGetObjByName ($a, "f")
$c = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($b, "q")
$d = _IEPropertyGet ($a, "hwnd")
WinSetState($d, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)
_IELoadWait ($a)
_IEFormElementSetValue ($c, "Failure")
_IEFormSubmit ($B)
_IELoadWait ($a)
_IELinkClickByText ($a, "President of the United States - George W. Bush")

I'm not trying to click on something (unless I have to), I am trying to find out how many instances there are of a certain link. sorry if my first post was confusing.

ok, so for example...

there is 2 "click here" links on the page.

I want a function to return 2 (or @extended to return 2), and then if I navigate to a different page, without any "click here" links, the function would return 0.

is that a good enough explanation?

They don't work that way. Please read the Return Value docs in the helpfile.

You'll need to loop through _IELinkGetCollection checking the.innerText property and count yourself.
