_IELinkClickByText, but what if

Recommended Posts


Something like this: Click :) here

Can I do something like this?:

_IELinkClickByText($IE, "Click", 0, 0) ; just part of the text (think I tried that)


_IELinkClickByText($IE, "Click (something to skip image) here", 0, 0) ;Don't know how to tell it to skip the image

I'm a newbie.Sorry if I don't reposed to your replays very fast.

_IELinkClickByText check the .outerText property of the link. In your example, that is "Click here" with two spaces embedded. Why not click on the image instead with _IEImgClick?

You can also loop through the links and examine them and take actions on them as required.

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IEAttach("_IELinkClickByText,")
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE)
For $oLink in $oLinks 
    ConsoleWrite(_IEPropertyGet($oLink, "outerText") & @CR)

If you looked at innerHTML you'd see this for that link:

Click <IMG title="" style="VERTICAL-ALIGN: middle; outline: none; MozOutline: none" alt=rolleyes.gif src="http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/style_emoticons/autoit/rolleyes.gif" border=0 emoid=":rolleyes:" so_prevBGColor="null" so_prevWidth="20" so_prevTitle> here

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?
