Code to detect what's written on browser page

I'm a long time user of v2 AutoIt, but there's one thing I've always wanted to be able to do and I'm wondering whether it's now possible in v3.

What I'd like to be able to know is when a certain condition has been met on a browser page. So for example:

Let's say I'm using AutoIt to submit information to a web based form, but I want to know whether the submission has been successful or not. Let's say that the next web page says "success" on it somewhere when the submission has worked.

Is there anyway of programming an AutoIt Script to recognise this outcome. Obviously in this case the Title bar isn't changing to give anything away, so I can't use the Title to move on.

Your thoughts and help are much appreciated.

You can copy everything on the page and read this, example:

Send("^a");select all
Send("^c");copy to clipboard
$text=ClipGet();set text to clipboard

Now use StringInStr() to check for the word "succes" or something, so:

If StringInStr($text,"succes") Then

You can press Ctrl+V in notepad after executing the first script to see how it looks.

And with the COM support in the beta release, it's even easier.

Have a look at just this snippet of code.

$o_object = ObjCreate("InternetExplorer.Application")
If IsObj($o_object) Then
    $o_object.visible = 0
    $o_object.navigate ("http://www.google.com/")
    While $o_object.busy
    $s_Text = $o_object.document.body.innerText

MsgBox(0, 'Page Text', $s_Text)

Or with IE.au3:

#include <IE.au3>
$oIE = _IECreate()
_IENavigate($oIE, "http://www.google.com/")
MsgBox(0, 'Page Text', $oIE.document.body.innerText)

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
