I have created an ActiveForm in Delphi6 for displaying Tiff Images.  I need the ActiveForm to load a tiff file when it is <Embed> in a Html Page, for example:

<EMBED src=&#8221;[Filename].tiff&#8221; width=100 height=100>

I&#8217;ve got the ActiveForm to load up when you embed a tiff file into the html page, but I cannot access or extract the tiff filename from the < EMBED> tab.

Have you tried reading the file into a text field or string, and doing something like: AnsiPos('<EMBED', htmlstring); That would give you the position in the string <EMBED is located, then add some spaces to account for the file name, use the copy function to grab it.

Some more complicated, but more powerfull are regular expressions.

You can use regular expressions to search for parts of text surrounding the text you are after.

Good luck,

Try this:

var
 ovEmbed: OleVariant;
begin
 ovEmbed := WebBrowser1.OleObject.Document.all.tags('EMBED');
 Memo1.Lines.Add(ovEmbed.src);
end;

I would like to delete this question, so that I can re-phrase it as the answers I am getting do not solve my problem.

Thank you for your answers, but they don't solve my problem.  However, they are good answer, that I will most likely find use for in future projects.  And for your effort I would like to reward you both 30 Points.  

Cheers.
