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?

I dont speak Finnish, but the basic idea is to search the webpage source code for setain text & if its there then do something:

#include <Array.au3> ; needed for arraydisplay othervise not needed to include

$URL = 'http://www.hs.fi/saa/'

    $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
    $HTMLSource = $oHTTP.Responsetext

    $_Arrayline = StringSplit($HTMLSource, @LF) ; this is the Array $_Arrayline
    _ArrayDisplay($_Arrayline, "blaaa") ; is hire to show you the contents of the array, you can comment this out
        for $i = 1 to $_Arrayline[0] 
            If StringInStr($_Arrayline[$i],'<strong>Helsinki</strong>') Then    ; search Array line for text start from line 1 & end with line 0                
                If StringInStr( $_Arrayline[$i-7],'000.gif') Then  MsgBox(0,'Array Column 2 line: ' & $i ,$_Arrayline[$i-7] & @CRLF & 'Its a sunny day1')
