Trouble with Javascript Post Back When Identifying URL

In a page I am working, there is a link that looks like this

<a id="page2_V_lnkAddBookmark" href="javascript:__doPostBack('page2$V$lnkAddBookmark','')">Add a Bookmark</a>

When I try to identify the URL with the following I get this error: "unable to find suitable URL"

find link=Add a Bookmark


find url=javascript:__doPostBack('page2$V$lnkAddBookmark','')

Any suggestion on how to handle this post back?


  • @sven is it possible to use the id?

    link id=page2_V_lnkAddBookmark
  • If you use HTTPFox or similar to spy on what is submitted, you could maybe replicate the behaviour of the javascript using post data=

    @cherub is right, there is no use in extracting the URL here as it is javascript that gets executed on a click. You have to use "modify url" and "post data".
