hi, i faced a problem when trying to make a script to automate my email.

i am using firefox

what i am trying to do is to wait till the window has loaded the page i am waiting for, for example, lets say i wanna wait till the current window shows the "keyword" on the middle left of the page. i dont actually care for the position at this time (maybe later) but what i want is a function that finds that keyword occurrence and returns me true if so, false if not.

also if possible id need a function to check if the page has loaded yet.

For web page automation, I have utilized the following techniques ...

StatusBarGetText()

view source or InetGet() > clipget() or file save > parse or search

ScreenOCR utility -- $$$ - parses screen fonts to ascii text.

I have been watching the rapid development of the beta w/ hopeful anticipation of

having superior handling methodologies available soon.

another solution would be to use a freeware text-only browser, such as Lynx.

This works for me too. What I do in IE is Send() tabs until the correct frame has focus, use Send() for ctrl-a, ctrl-c to copy all contents to the clipboard. After this, I run ClipGet() and search it using StringInStr().

This way works great for me.
