sub ClickLink {#$LinkName, $popup,$CheckForMessageBox, $Index,$nowait
Description: Clicks on a  Link

How To:

Just look at the text of the link on the page:


<p><a href="">Simple Automated
Module For Internet Explorer</a><br>

ClickLink("Simple Automated Module For Internet Explorer");

If $CheckForMessageBox is set to 1 samie is supposed to Verify a messagebox, but I think that's stubbed out in the latest build for now.

Use $Index if there are links on the same page or frame with the exact same text.

Cookbook recipe

use Win32::OLE;
use Win32::SAM; #use Win32::Slingshot;

$| = 1;
my $URL = "";
my $seconds;

$Win32::OLE::Warn = 3;

$seconds = Navigate($URL);
print "Checkbox.html page took $seconds seconds to load\n";
$seconds = ClickLink("test link below");
print "testlink.html took $seconds seconds to load\n";

Further Notes:

The second parameter $popup is optional.
It tells samie that the FormButton is going to raise a popup window.

The third parameter $CheckForMessageBox is optional.
It tells samie that a message box will appear when this button is clicked.
With this paramter set to 1 samie will resume the process to react to the message box.
This process must first be started with a call to VerifyMessageBox.

The fourth parameter $Index is optional. It is used when there is more than one link with the same $LinkName.

The fifth parameter $nowwait is optional. It is used when you don't want samie to call WaitForDocumentComplete
or WaitForDocumentCompleteForPopup after you click the button.
