Hi Everyone,

autoit newbie here.. I need IELoadWait for a new pop up window which is the output of a link from a main IE window.

I have the following code.

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://somesite.url")

_IELoadWait ($oIE)

_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Link")

$oForm = _IEFormGetObjByName ($oIE, "form1")

$oSelect = _IEFormElementGetObjByName ($oForm, "name2")

_IEFormElementOptionselect ($oSelect, "sometext", 1, "byText")

_IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Link2")

upon hitting link2, a new IE window will pop up with the result, this is where i need to use IELoadWait as i need to have the output completed first before taking any action.

i've tried _IELoadWait ($oIE) but it didn't work as apparently, that one ($oIE) is for the initial URL specified at the start of the script.

i've also tried the following

$test = _IELinkClickByText ($oIE, "Link2")

_IELoadWait ($test)

but it doesn't seem to work too...

any help would be greatly appreciated.

When you click the link and the new pop up window appear $oIE still points to the old window.

You need to assign it to the popup using _IEAttach.
