clicking on javascripted link

Recommended Posts


i was trying to run something with a variation of these two:

_IELinkClickByIndex($oie, "testlink", 1)

$isc = _IEGetObjByName($oie, "testlink")

_IEAction($isc, "click")


$Source = _InetGetSource($oie)

$LinksArray = _StringBetween($Source, "<a href=", ">")


The sourse snipplet for the link is this:

<a href="java script: parent.doURL('0987312409857230498709872346AF898724',null,'get',false,'yes', false)">testlink</a>

i'm not getting anything returned however. any ideas on how i might simulate a "click" on this link?

Sometimes it's enough to navigate this script:

$sURL = "java script:parent.doURL('0987312409857230498709872346AF898724',null,'get',false,'yes', false)"
_IENavigate($oIE, $sURL)

lol ok for some reason the post makes it "java script" so relate it as "java<nospace>script" for that matter.
