_IELinkClickByText using wildcard?

3 posts in this topic

Hello, is it possible to use wildcards with _IELinkClickByText?

For example whenever the word "print" is in the link it would be clicked.

"printer-friendly version"

"print this article"

"printable version"

If not is there a way to do this?

Use _IELinkGetCollection, loop through till you find what you want and then use _IEAction - click

$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink in $oLinks
    If StringInStr(String($oLink.innerText), "what-I-Want") Then
        _IEAction($oLink, "click")
        ExitLoop
    EndIf
Next

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?
