Clicking All Of The Same ObjectName Buttons..?

5 posts in this topic

$IE = _IECreate(http://website.com)
$button = _IEGetObjByName($IE, "button")
If Not @error Then 
_IEAction($button, "click")
EndIf
_IELoadWait($IE)

there are more than one of these same Object names ( name="button" ) on a website that i want to click all at once or one after the other, which ever way is possible..

What would the code look like to achieve this..??

If you pass -1 in for the second parameter of _IEGetObjByName you get a collection back instead of a simple object reference. Also, whenever you call taht function, @extended will contain the number of matching objects in the collection and you can refernce them one at a time using the index parameter.

Be aware however, if clicking on the button causes a refresh of the page, all other button references will be invalidated and you must get them again.

In that case, assuming then buttons come back in the same configuration after the refresh, you could make note of how many there are on the first call and then reference them one by one...

$oIE = _IECreate(http://website.com)
$oButtons = _IEGetObjByName($IE, "button", -1)
$numButtons = @extended
For $i = 0 to $numButtons - 1
    $oButton = _IEGetObjByName($oIE, "button", $i)
    _IEAction($oButton, "click")
    _IELoadWait($oIE)
Next
