Can't click in confirmation window

Recommended Posts



i've got a weird problem:

When my script does the following command

_IELinkClickByText($oIE, "delete",0,0)

then the link is executed fine. A javascript alert-window opens and is waiting for a "OK" or "Cancel" command. How can I click "OK" or even send "{ENTER}" to the active window?

My script hangs on this position. It goes on, when i've manually clicked "OK" or "Cancel". All script commandos are being ignored at this time.

Is there a trick with the _IELinkClickByText command? I don't want to wait for the result of the confirmation window... I just want my script to continue its work until it's done.

Anybody got a clue?

Here's the javascript-code:

function askDelete( myUrl, ID )
        if ( confirm("Do you want to delete ID  " + ID + "") )

Get a reference to the link with _IELinkGetCollection (either by looping and looking a the attributes) and then look at the 2nd example for _IEAction in the helpfile.
