Need Help Reading A Web Page - PLEASE

Recommended Posts


Here is the function I have that runs when i click the button. i used a sample web page in this example, it is not the page ill need to scan, but if i can learn how to scan a page ill be one step closer to doing what I need to do.

It pulls up the messag box but there is only a 0 in the message box.. so not sure what is going wrong.. i also tried putting in $url instead of $oIE but still only the 0 shows up. If anyone can assist it would be greatly appreciated...


Func ButtonFunction1()

$url = "http://www.n17.com/"

$oIE = _IEAttach ("Network 17 - Windows Internet Explorer")

$sHTML = _IEDocReadHTML ($oIE)

MsgBox(0, "DUH", $sHTML)

Sorry but that just did not work... what is that last name, first name, form element???

I need to read the web page, dump the source to the message box.. once i can do that, then i can play with the info in the string, pull out what i am looking for..

Thanks for any assistance...

#include <IE.au3>
$url = 'http://www.n17.com/'
$oIE = _IEAttach ($url,'URL')
$sHTML = _IEDocReadHTML ($oIE)
MsgBox(0, "DUH", $sHTML)


if your using or need to use name of documents title as string try

_IEAttach ('Network 17')

and not

_IEAttach ('Network 17 - Windows Internet Explorer')


sub-string of main document title, so this is document title and not win title


if you do need to use full title or part of title as wintitle use it as

_IEAttach ('Network 17 - Windows Internet Explorer','WindowTitle')


newer the less i think that 'URL' in upper code is nice solution 4 it

hope its all clear? :)

There are those that believe that the perfect heist lies in the preparation.
Some say that it’s all in the timing, seizing the right opportunity. Others even say it’s the ability to leave no trace behind, be a ghost.
