Hi !
I'm working with Delphi 5 Enterprise (engl.version), WinNT 4.0 and Win98se.
I've built a small webbrowser (with your help ;-) ...
Now i've the idea to read the web-content offline. So i begin with a downloadbutton and...
----------------
function DownloadFile(SourceFile, DestFile: string): Boolean;
begin
  try
     Result := UrlDownloadToFile(nil, PChar(SourceFile), PChar(DestFile), 0, nil) = 0;
    except
     Result := False;
  end;
end;
-----------------
If the web-content is built via script (...asp?123...) this isn't a solution. Now i've the idea that the whole webcontent should be in my browser-cache ... The best: Without seeing it before ;-)
Then i can read all with
WebBrowser1.Offline := True ...
How can i do this?
Are there any solutions, tips or tricks?
Thanks a lot!

Best regards,
Ingo

BTW: 110 points is all i have ;-)

You can get the full HTML source of the URL, even if it
is created by scripting(ASP,JSP) by using the technique at

Hi Eddie,
thanks a lot... i'll still wait a bit... It's a good answer but... Perhaps i still get an answer 'cause of "automatic saving to cache" or so...?!
If there comes nothing you get the points ;-)
Best regards,
Ingo

It is better to get it straight from the webbrowser
instead of from the cache. The cache may not contain the
latest version of the document due to the user's internet
options settings.
