_IE.au3 viewing the full 'a href' with target=

5 posts in this topic

Not sure if this is the correct terminlogy but I am trying to view the full HTML code on all links on a page that have the following in their code.

target="_blank"

So really, I think I just need the "method" (is that right?) In the example from the help file it uses the following code. I am guessing I need something other than the "$oLink.href" to view the part of the code that has target? In this example there is no link with target= in the code, but the webpage I am using it for, I cannot post in a public forum. I was thinking to use "$oLink.target" but that doesn't seem to produce any result other than 0.

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IE_Example ("basic")
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection ($oIE)
$iNumLinks = @extended
MsgBox(0, "Link Info", $iNumLinks & " links found")
For $oLink In $oLinks
    MsgBox(0, "Link Info", $oLink.href)
Next

Thanks in Advance.

Your guess is correct -- the property you want is .target

You can verify this by looking at the MSDN docs... InternetExploerer -> Document -> Link -- see my sig.

Thanks for the link that will be helpful in the future.

I think this is what I am shooting for, based off some help you gave in the past. But I don't quite understand the StringLen part, it seems that this would just return a number, and that would always be true?

****EDIT****

Or is that the point, that it is always true? So change every link to be _top?

************

$sUrl = "http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/linking/_A_TARGET_95y98y108y97y110y107y.html"
$oIE = _IECreate ($sUrl,1)
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection ($oIE)

For $oLink In $oLinks
   If StringLen(String($oLink.target)) Then
        $oLink.target = "_top"
    EndIf
Next

If there is no target= property on the link then StringLen will be 0 and the If will evaluate to False and skip setting the target to _top. If the target= is set to anything, then the StringLen will be a positive integer and the If will evaluate to true (any non-zero value evaluates to True) and it will force target="_top"

Make sense?

Yes it does, you are a very clever man.

Thanks for your assistance.
