_IEGetObjByName() or _IEGetObjById() not an option

6 posts in this topic

I have a webpage in which I want to click on a View Document button. There is no shortcut key, and the hmtl code only reflects a Value="View Document", ie not Name or ID paramter. I could not find a _IEGetObjByValue() function in IE.au3

How can I click on this button?

Thank you.

Is it in a form? Then _IEFormElementGetCollection. Else, _IETagnameGetCollection and _IEAction with click.

I continue to marvel at your fast response and support of your IE functions.

Yes, it is a form and have tried your suggestion. Not sure of my logic so here it is.

$oCollections = IEFormElementGetColletion($oIE)

$iNumCollections = @extended

_IELinkClickByIndex($oIE, $iNumCollections -1)

It clicks on the first link as opposed to the button which is the last link. Any further comments are greatly appreciated.

Suggest you run some of the example in the help file.

Form elements and links are different things.

_IEFormElementGetColletion takes a form object for input not the browser...

Tank you for your advice. I utilize the postings for examples. Where can I find the help files you mention? I am familiar with the IE.au3 directory but no actual examples without quering the posts.

"AutoIt HelpFile" in the AutoIt group in your Windows Start menu. It is very well done for everything (not just IE. au3 :) )
