Is it possible to have internet explorer to run in the background so they can't see it and get some text from a site?

:evil:

Thanks! :)

In Run() put @SW_HIDE? And then ControlGetText? Dunno, what your trying to do really, looks fishy... but this is just a guess.

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

Well all im really doing is its like inputbox you type in a website and it gets the text from the website they put in. :)

Not sure why anyone would need that but i might use it .:evil:

If you know the title, then try WinGetText() . I don't mess w/ browsers, so again I'm just guessing.

Well how would you do that?

Have to open a view source on a hidden browser.

Then how do you take out all the fancy html stuff?

:D

:D

:evil:

That be very hard.

Thanks tho! :mad:

Edit: I think its impossible to get text off a site without like 500 lines of codeing to view the source and remove all that html.

:D

Err so much for my program.

:)

Wasted all that time trying to make it.

:D

Well ok..

But anyways if you use objcreate and set visable to false then can you use the ctrlsend to use ctrl + a ctrl + c?

:evil:

Have you submitted this in the Scripts and Scraps forum for review?

If you took all this time to create this I am sure someone would like to see how you completed your objective.
