This page has so many images etc. that it takes a lot of time for them to download all.... however this button is visible almost immediately .... so what should i do ?

I dont know the IE include very well (whether it has some form of "wait till the page loads") but I will say that waiting works. You need to make sure you wait before _IEGetObjByName so the page can actually load. This worked for me.

#include<IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate("http://skurfit.com",0,1,0,0)
sleep(5000)
$Btn = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "browse")
_IEAction($Btn, "click")

look for something else rather than the sleep, but this tested the concept.

Another things to consider... DOM elements have a readyState (as well as overall Documents and the browser). readyState's you can look for would be 3 (can also be "interactive) or 4 (can also be "complete").

Once the button has a readyState value of 3 or 4 you can interact with it. You can monitor the readyState with _IEPropertyGet with the "readyState" prameter. Note that you may need to add _IEErrorHandlerRegister() to prevent COM errors you can get from trying to examine a not-yet-existing element from being fatal.

Thanks a lot even I didnt look at the help file before posting the error... lol.

Please help me also to enter value in the input element for browsing ... i want to use

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName($oIE, "")

$oQuery = _IEFormElementGetObjByName($oForm, "")

_IEFormElementSetValue($oQuery, "www.gmail.com")

but unfortunately i cannot see the name of the form on the html source of the page

Actually, this would probably be the fastest, most reliable solution:

#include<IE.au3>
_IEErrorHandlerRegister()
$oIE = _IECreate("http://skurfit.com",0,1,0,0)
$Btn = 0
While Not IsObj($Btn)
    $Btn = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "browse")
    Sleep(100)
WEnd
_IEAction($Btn, "click")
