NAME Mozilla::Mechanize::Link ^

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

SYNOPSIS ^

sorry, read the source for now

DESCRIPTION ^

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

METHODS ^

Mozilla::Mechanize::Link->new($link_node, $moz)

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.

$link->url

Returns the url from the link.

$link->text

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

$link->name

NAME attribute from the source tag, if any.

$link->tag

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

$link->click

Click the link (does this fire onClick?).
