jokeeffe Posted October 5, 2004 Report Share Posted October 5, 2004 Hello - I am trying to automate downloading files from a frequently updated web page. This involves finding links on the web page and clicking on them. I can do this relatively easily in IE, using IE's Edit -> Find command: Edit -> Find Enter link text Cancel Find dialog <TAB> to select link <ENTER> to goto link However, my problem is that there are many links on the page with the same name, and I want to only activate the ones that I have not previously visited. What I would really like to do is to highlight a link using the technique shown above, then move the mouse to that link so that I can examine the pixel color, and then decide whether or not to follow the link based on the pixel color. But I haven't been able to find any way to move my mouse to the currently highlighted text in a web page, or to the link which currently has focus. Any ideas on how to accomplish this, or alternate techniques that might be helpful? Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
