Retrieve URL from HTTP Request result

Recommended Posts

Hi all! 

First of all congratulation on the fantastic scripting program and great forum we have here.

I'm sick and tired of searching for a solution to my problem but cant seem to find it, maybe someone can point me a solution or a post with a solution.

This is my problem.

I make a GET to a website, and the website sends me to a random page of the website. I need to know what URL the website sent me to. I tried to look at the headers and the source of the page, but i didnt found any reference to final ÛRL i got sent to.

In this example, i use google.com that redirects me to my country's google page. in this example i know i can get it from the source, but imagine i cant get it. How could i get the random URL the website is giving me?

I DID use the search feature in this forum but got nowhere.

$oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
$oHTTP.Open("GET", "http://www.google.com/", False)
$oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("User-Agent", "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008120122 Firefox/3.0.5")
$oReceived = $oHTTP.ResponseText
$oStatusCode = $oHTTP.Status
$HeaderResponses = $oHTTP.GetAllResponseHeaders()
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $HeaderResponses = ' & $HeaderResponses & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console

If $oStatusCode == 200 Then
    ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $oStatusCode = ' & $oStatusCode & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console
    $file = FileOpen("ReceivedHTML.html", 2) ; The value of 2 overwrites the file if it already exists
    FileWrite($file, $oReceived)

Thanks in advance
