NAME Mozilla::Mechanize::Link

Mozilla::Mechanize::Link - Mimic WWW::Mechanize::Link


sorry, read the source for now


The Mozilla::Mechanize::Link object is a thin wrapper around HTML link elements.


Initialize a new object. $link_node is a Mozilla::DOM::HTMLElement (or a node that can be QueryInterfaced to one); specifically, it must be an HTMLAnchorElement, an HTMLFrameElement, an HTMLIFrameElement, or an HTMLAreaElement. $moz is a Mozilla::Mechanize object. (This latter is a hack for `click', so that new pages can load in the browser. The GUI has to be able to enter its main loop. If you don't plan to use that method, you don't have to pass it in.)

Note: Although it supports the same methods as WWW::Mechanize::Link, it is a completely different implementation.

Returns the url from the link.

Text of the link (innerHTML, so includes any HTML markup).

NAME attribute from the source tag, if any.

Tag name ("A", "AREA", "FRAME" or "IFRAME").

Click the link (does this fire onClick?).
