_HTML.au3 (V1.01)

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Here's an UDF to to get informations from any HTML (XML) source, without any browser.

_HTML.au3

Current functions:

- _HTML_ExtractURLVar

- _HTML_Get

- _HTML_GetAllImageSrc

- _HTML_GetAllLinks

- _HTML_GetImageSrc

- _HTML_GetLink

- _HTML_GetSource

- _HTML_GetTable

- _HTML_GetText

- _HTML_GetURLVar

- _HTML_ImageSave

- _HTML_Search

Different search-modes:

$_HTML_SEARCHMODE = 1 ; (0 = Compare / 1 = Substring / RegExp) (2 = Compare / 3 = Substring / String-compare)

Example 1: (getting the url of the favicon of a page)

#include <_html.au3>

$sHTML = _HTML_GetSource("http://autoit.de/index.php?page=Portal")
$sIconURL = _HTML_Get($sHTML, "link", "href", "image/x-icon", "type")
MsgBox(64,"",$sIconURL)

Example:

#Region Includes
#include <Array.au3>
#include <_HTML.au3>
#EndRegion Includes

$_HTML_SEARCHMODE = 1

Main()

Func Main()

    Local $HTML = _HTML_GetSource("http://autoit.de/index.php?page=Portal")

    MsgBox(0, "", _HTML_GetURLVar($HTML, "page", "Mitglieder", "title") & @CRLF)
    MsgBox(0, "", _HTML_GetText($HTML, "div", "cont.*erCont", "class", 5) & @CRLF)
    MsgBox(0, "", _HTML_GetImageSrc($HTML, "controllcenterImage") & @CRLF)
    MsgBox(0, "", _HTML_GetLink($HTML, "loginButton") & @CRLF)

    Local $a = _HTML_GetAllLinks($HTML)
    _ArrayDisplay($a)

    $a = _HTML_GetAllLinks($HTML, '\.com')
    _ArrayDisplay($a)

    $a = _HTML_GetAllImageSrc($HTML, 'wcf/images/')
    _ArrayDisplay($a)
EndFunc   ;==>Main

Nice work, indeed this can be acomplished with IE functions but your functions looks good to get informations from HTML pages.

The UDF looks interesting, and today I thought of a reason why I might want to retrieve search engine results for a program I'm making. Although I have decided against the idea in this instance. It would only have been necessary if the user somehow bypasses the filters I am designing which avoid meaningless (or ambiguous) user imput. Searching for meaningless strings on Google won't be a useful feature. I might find some other uses for this though. :x

It looks promising, and it may help to extract more easily informations from html code !

I will try it.

Thanks to share ! Posted Image

Thanks for sharing!

Brings to mind a concept, which I tentatively call - Webpage Pruner.

Where you parse the contents of a html file to a GUI with mutli tabs. The idea being that different portions of that web page inhabit different tabs, which you can at the click of a button, remove from the html file or export to a new one. In other words a limited visual editor. Unlike a web page editor, it's not really trying to interpret anything ... just mostly dealing with text & images ... though you could provide for links & tables, etc. In other words, you could remove all the crap and end up with a pretty bare bones web page.

Anyone is welcome to have a go at this if they like, as it could just remain an idea in my mind ... until it quietly slips away ....

@Piyush:

There was a small bug in that function - it works with $iFilter = 0. I've uploaded a new version.

@mLipok you have forgot an _ArrayDisplay($r,'$r') on line 295

The _HTMLGetTable function fails on tables with rowspan and/or colspan.

I post here an example that I've ported and adapted a bit from my post (https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/167679-read-data-from-html-tables-from-raw-html-source/) about data extraction from html tables. You can see that if you select table 2 from the example page and click on the "To array by Stilgar" button the extracted data by the _HTMLGetTable function is not correct. Same issue if you select table 7.
Using my function to extract data by click on the "To array by Chimp" button instead, data is extracted correctly.

here is the example script to test data extraction from html tables:

; #include <_HtmlTable2Array.au3> ; <--- udf by chimp. already included at bottom of this demo
