Hi,

Here is my problem (or your challenge):

I have a form with a MS Internet Control Component (and some buttons etc.).
When I drag an URL to this Internet Control Component, I will be able to read (and display) the HTML-text from the displayed page, so that I can filter some tags, text and links.

Can anybody tell me how I can do that?

Thanks

Just a little modification to bobbit31 code:


Private Sub Command1_Click()
WebBrowser1.Navigate "<url>"
' comment this code:
'While WebBrowser1.Busy
'   DoEvents
'Wend
End Sub

Private Sub WebBrowser1_DocumentComplete(ByVal pDisp As Object, URL As Variant)

If (pDisp Is WebBrowser1.Object) Then
    MsgBox WebBrowser1.Document.body.innerhtml
End If

End Sub

Yes bobbit31,

It works almost exactly on the way I like it, but I get only the <BODY> part of the page, not the <HEAD> part of it....

Of course i have tried to change the "WebBrowser1.Document.body.innerhtml" in to "WebBrowser1.Document.head.innerhtml" and "WebBrowser1.Document.innerhtml", but that would be to obvious.

So what is the secret???
