Hi guys !

I'm trying to automate Internet Explorer and I've reached sort of a plateau . I need to get a reference to an object ( login button ) who's source looks like this :

<input type="image" src="img.jpg"/>

How could I get a reference to this kind of object ? I tried using _IEImgGetCollection , I tried looking for it in the FormElementCollection , but nothing seems to work. Any ideas ?

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?

Get the collection of "input" tags and find the one you want:

$colInputs = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "input")
$iInputCnt = @extended
ConsoleWrite("Debug: There are " & $iInputCnt & " input tags" & @LF)
$n = 0
For $oInput In $colInputs
    ConsoleWrite("Debug: " & $n & ": innerhtml = " & $oInput.innerhtml & @LF)
    If $oInput.src = "img.jpg" Then MsgBox(64, "Found", "Found input tag at index = " & $n)
    $n += 1
Next

:)

P.S. Well, it takes all the fun out of it if Dale posts better answers before I get my over-complicated one posted... :)
