_IElinkclickbytext with variable?!


Recommended Posts

With _IElinkclickbytext I can only click on links like this: www.google.com

Now I'd like to know a solution for clicking links on this format: www.google.com/db36ed3b723dh382dh78dh23

The first part of the link is always the same, but the remainder is always different, so I need a variable or something like this.

You say you are using _IELinkClickByText, but it appears that you are really trying to key off of the href of the link insead of the link text displayed in the browser.

In any case, you can either use _IELinkClickByIndex or you can take full control by using a combination of _IELinkGetCollection and _IEAction with "click" - e.g.

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate("your-url")
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection ($oIE)
$sHref = "string to look for"
For $oLink In $oLinks
    MsgBox(0, "Link Info", $oLink.href)
    If StringInStr(String($oLink.href), $sHref) Then ; Force String just in case you hit a null value
        _IEAction($oLink, "click")

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?

Thank you very much for this script it helped me for a long time!

Now I have a problem.

I have the same links like this: www.google.com/db36ed3b723dh382dh78dh23

but I now I have a few identical links in this format.

For exaple: google.com/1234784748444444





With your script I put in the area "string to look for" the string "google.com/1234", but then it will open only the first link. Can you change the script, that it will open all links?

Thankfully Giwan (and sorry for my bad English).

That would quickly clutter the screen, unless this is some sort of click-scam money bot....

but I digress.

You'd have to look into possibly opening a new browser when it finds the string "1234" .... _IECreate($oLink.href)

That are only three links to open, so I don't think that it would sclutter the screen.

I thought it could go with an additional instruction like string + 1 or so. I am not so good in programming, so I it does not help me really what you have written Blue Drache <_<... You have to make examples :)...
