Call a Javascript function in a webpage using Microsoft.mshtml class in c#.net 2005

I need to create an automated system in c# in order to be able to navigate thru Purolator's website since they don't have any webservices to do request to there server.

I am able by using the mshtml.HTMLInputElementClass class to navigate and fill all fields but when I get to adding my package infos, I need to click on a <A HREF> with a onClick in it.

/////
<a href="javascript:LocalAddRow();"><span class="FieldTextLink" id="ctl00_CPPC_lblInsert">Add a Row</span></a>
/////

Does any one has an idea on how I would do it?


Thanks,

Thanks, it worked great,

Here is, as reference, the code I have used to make it work.

          String code = "LocalAddRow();";
            try
            {
                IHTMLDocument2 doc1 = (IHTMLDocument2)ie.Document;
 
                if (doc1 != null)
                {
                    IHTMLWindow2 parentWindow = doc1.parentWindow;
                    if (parentWindow != null)
                        parentWindow.execScript(code, "javascript");
                }
            }
            catch { }
