question about ie.au3

Recommended Posts



i just discovered ie.au3 (too late ?).

Indeed, i'd like to know how i can find the information about the names i'd like to use in the methods "IEFormGetObjByName" for example.

To make it simple, i'd like to create a script that behaves like this :

1) go to "http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/" (sounds familiar ?)

2) click on forum (still familiar ?)

3) click on "general help and support" (still ?)

4) search "help ie.au3" on the search box at the bottom left (not familiar for you maybe)

5) click on the result "Newbie confused with IE.au3 " (should be the first)

6) be happy ! ;)

Thank you in advance, with such a small script, i'll be able to do what i've got in mind.

It's good to see that your trying to figure it out on your own.

The reason why your code is not working is because "Gift Shop" is not text, it's an image with coordinate mappings.

<map name="Map">
    <area shape="rect" coords="414,12,497,31" href="http://www.autoitscript.com" alt="Home">
    <area shape="rect" coords="498,12,575,31" href="http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/" alt="AutoIt v3">
    <area shape="rect" coords="576,12,651,31" href="http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?" alt="Forum">
    <area shape="rect" coords="652,12,724,31" href="http://www.cafepress.com/autoit" alt="Gift Shop">

indeed i'm trying to figure it out ...

after reading again and again ie.au3 i'm a little bit confused.

it seems my only choice is to know where to click without ie.au3 (_IEImgClick doesnt seem appropriate)

if so, how can i cant figure out how to find automatically the coords i want to click on ...


Thanks for helping.
