Hi hamadahali,

there are several ways to do that.

  • Did you try to search for a solution in the forum or on other sites like stackoverflow etc.?
  • Please share your code how you tried to use ff.au3.
  • Please give us more details of what you try to achieve
    • Do you want the whole source code or texts of specific elements of the page or something else?
    • Which page is it etc.?
    • Is there a page login needed?

Depending on your answers, you can use:


Or http requests with or without token or WebDriver automation etc.

Best regards

Stay innovative!
