twebbrowser actions

in the past, i had a problem with the user-agent header item.
i needed to autentificate reqests from my browser, that the asp-s in our firma could determine, if they should answer (regular "asker" using our browser) or not (anybody else with any else browser)

i did it by using navigate2. there i can owerwrite the user-agent. i can not do that in onbeforenavigate, and that did problems by using frames.

now i check every url going thru the onbeforenavigate, if it has an mark (special parameter added by navigate2). if yes, the url is marked by our user agent and can navigate, or not and then i cancel the navigation and start a new one with the same url thru navigate2, using our useragent.


all seemd to be fine, but now i came to problem, when on the page is an buttton (submit or any other action-button)

for example, i have a page on wich is an radiobuttons group and the button submit.
submit will call the other asp, wich will write something to the db.
well if i look at that page thru our browser, and press the button, it will call the db-working-asp, but it will not pass the values to write to the db.

my question (after long time)  is:
can i in onbeforenavigate read the values sended thru action button and/or change it?

Well, I'm not sure how you can get this in a generic sense, but there may be an alternative.  In the OnBeforeNavigate you could search the document's DOM for the active element, parse up to the parent form, then enumerate all the children & get the data that way.

Most forms encode that data into the url they send the server's cgi - you can then decode that from the string in the url OLEVariant parameter.

well, i looked to the url, :-))
it was the first place i searched.
i think, if there is not any other way of data transfer. some property in object webbrowser or document ... it will be some of MS-foul-tricks

I was just rereading the question and I am wondering, you are needing this for .asp's on your server, so you don't need a sollution for _any_ web page with _any_ form - just yours?  If this is the case it might be alot easier to do that verification within the webpage.

well, offcourse, it should work for other pages too, but this browser is developed for our intranet and has some special capabilities for identifiying the user (we are using one connection for sap server for all users - do not ask me why).

and solving this problem would enable to me build a more simpler version of the browser.
