Finding a link by its href?

21 posts in this topic

Here's what I have so far.. (just the basics)

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE =_IECreate("http://google.com",0,1,1)
$o_link = _IEGetObjByName($oIE,"") ; This line isn't right. How do I get the link by where it's pointing to?
_IEAction($o_link,"click")
_IELoadWait ($oIE)
_IEQuit ($oIE)

$arr[0]="hip"
$arr[1]="hip"
;^^ hip hip array. ^^

If you know the href in advance, why can't you just navigate to it?

I could navigate to it.. would that work if they did a referrer check?

That depends on the site. Just try it.

Nope. "Please use the correct gateway". (a.k.a. "I'm a paranoid freak with referrer checks on every page").

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE =_IECreate("http://infiniteadds.org",0,1,1)
$o_fid = _IEGetObjByName($oIE,"friendid")
$o_submit=_IEGetObjByName($oIE,"action")
_IEFormElementSetValue ($o_fid, "21802680")
_IEAction($o_submit,"click")
_IELoadWait ($oIE)

_IENavigate($oIE, "http://infiniteadds.org/addvip2.php?fid=21802680&addid=112997804&key=c52092001e5c5a42679d35884ac1c109")
_IELoadWait ($oIE)
Sleep(5000)
_IEQuit($oIE)

It's a site where I promote a band. With all of the promotions that I run, they get 100+ friend requests per day (which is a lot).

So you are trying to bot your advertisements?

hmmm.. yes? It's not against the ToS. You can log in every 30 minutes to be added to the list of people to be added. So.. instead of doing it myself, I just make a bot to do it. I'm not cheating the system or anything. I'm just making it so that I can save time, not cheat them, you know?

Ok, that's fine then. I'm not really sure how to find it but I suppose you could find all anchors and look at each one until you find one that matches. Or better yet, does it have an ID?

No link ID. Could I just count links, and say to click the 47th link or something?

Well, if it's always in the same place, then yes, that should work.

Well.. the only problem is this: I know the placement if you count from the bottom.. but not the top. haha.

The link is toward the bottom (let's pretend it's in the footer), so they won't change it.. but they'll change the content above it. Any way to count from the bottom up?

By the way, thanks for answering all of these questions for me. I'm a total noobbbbbbb. :)

Take a look at _IELinkGetCollection.

A small example:

$oIE = _IE_Example ("basic")
$oLinks = _IELinkGetCollection ($oIE, 0)
$iNumLinks = @extended
MsgBox(0, "Link Info", $iNumLinks & " links found")

$last_link = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE, $iNumLinks - 1); -2 means 2nd last link and so on

MsgBox(0, "Last link is: ", $last_link.href)

$oIE = _IE_Example ("basic")

That's where I'd create/navigate an IE window, right?

Yes that's the handle to the IE object, often a _IECreate.

The lower part of that example is actually perfect. Good thinking, Pain.

$last_link = _IELinkGetCollection($oIE, $iNumLinks - 1); -2 means 2nd last link and so on

See if this works for you.

I actually know very little about the IE stuff. I am a software developer, a web developer, a Windows automator, but not a web automator. :)

Really? I'm just a sixteen year old kid, trying to balance school, homework, sports, work, and learning stuff on the computer.

No specialties for me. :)
