• How are you viewing and getting the innerHtml content of the website, from a vb.net WebBrowser?
  • What do you mean by dynamic, the text is not in the original Html file, but added from something like JavaScript once the page is loaded?

Hey, codeorder

1. I'm using an webbrowser, but a webrequest will work to
2. Yes, the text changes but is in the page source

Is it possible to post the Html source code from the web-page?

If too much code to add in this thread, send me a private message with the Html source code and bold out or highlight the area of content you want to retrieve.

A Really big thanks, codeorder
Theres only one problem left:
I want to display the text into an textbox called "ipinfo"
when i do it like this:

ipinfo.text = myWebFileInfo.Substring(myStartIndex, myStringLengthToExtract)

it is one big mess

:)
Try this modification.

Hi, Just wanted to say thanks for the code. I modified it to grab any text between <td> and </td> tags.

This is very cool. Any way to modify this so that it can batch process a list of URLs? i.e. copy/paste a list of urls into a textbox and have your code loop for each url and spit out results per line into another text box or file?

>>This is very cool...
Then start your own thread And Not spam someone else's thread. Sucks not to be able to edit past 30min., right?:D

I got the same problem! but i need to use regex. does anyone know how I can fix my codes using regex?
