Clicking a topic in a forum

Recommended Posts

Kero

I have a script that opens IE and go to different forums in a message board. Now, I want it to randomly go to a topic in a forum. How do I go about doing this? Let's use Autoit's forum as an example. I am using ie.au3 library.

Thanks

_IELinkGetCollection() and Random()

How do I make sure it doesn't click on other links other than the threads only? Also, _IELinkGetCollection returns an object. I do not know how to manipulate objects but I tried to think of it as an array and it doesn't work.

$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection ($oIE)

$numLinks = UBound($oLinks,1)

Example:

$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection ($oIE)
$iNumLinks = @extended
For $oLink In $oLinks
    If StringInStr($oLink.herf,"http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=") Then
            _IENavigate($oIE,$oLink.herf)
           ExitLoop
       EndIf
Next

I am not very good with IE.au3, but this will work.
