Hey people, im not sure im looking the right thread, so point me if im wrong ok.

For Internet Explorer: Right Click Properties

COM/?ID=5 File

^ Ok this is a button or link if you will on a web site.

Firefox: Inspect Element

<a class="menulink" href="?id=5">Help</a>

So you can see ID is same, Im wanting to script for Internet Explorer to click this link/button.

I know i can do it with mouse coords, but that is a crude way of doing it.

Now, am i needing to use COM for a script or what?

Can anyone point me in the right direction please.

I dont want a hand out, i want to read it for myself.

Also, notices the info tool is not really helpful on web unless im using it wrong.

All i need is some information links or what ever help you guys can pass on.

Thank you anyone who can point me to threads or sample scripts to look at.
