Finding Text Then Moving Mouse To That Location


Recommended Posts


I'm new to ME and this forum so any assistance you can give me will be grately appreciated.


I am trying to create a macro that will search for a word within a web page (this word is variable) and once this is found move the mouse to that word location.


I've thought along the lines of using the IE find- this then highlights the word but I don't know how to then get the mouse to move to the word location.


Kind regards,


Matthew Ball

Welcome to the group matty and ol3ears!


Are you looking to move the mouse because you want to click on a link that consists of the text you searched for? Unfortunatly, I think that Internet Explorer, like Microsoft Word, cannot make use of the Mouse Move to Text Cursor Position command.


If you want to engage a link, have the macro close the Find dialog, set focus to it, and hit the Enter key. Use Text Type command and enter <ESC><TAB><ENTER> to do the three steps.
