Reading text from a website - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

How do I retrieve text from a website ? I want to make a bitcoin alarm so if the price is above or below a certain price my computer will sound the alarm while I play a game.

Here's a screenshot of the website I want to read from :


Is it better to use AutoIT's script for opening the website itself or read from a browser ? This is just a start, I will add more alarm for other things but this should help me getting started.

Why can't I edit my own post ? Just want to add that I also want to read Vol 24h from the table below it or maybe make my own table in the app, I think if I try to refresh in realtime  the website will kick me and show "too many request" (I opened too many windows the other day and it did that). This website provide an API , so maybe I can use that to get the text from ?

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:


General development and scripting discussions.

Do not create AutoIt-related topics here, use the AutoIt General Help and Support or AutoIt Technical Discussion forums.
