Dear all,

How can I read a form field value (MyField) from a website (http://www.mysite.com/mypage.htm)?
I'm using Delphi 7 with Indy.

Thanks, Abraham

If you just load the source, it won't have a value. Please explain further or give a better example.

Thank you for your reply EddieShipman.

This is a form field which displays the users IP number.  So on load it has a value. Here is the code:

<script language="javascript">
  var ip = '<!--#echo var="REMOTE_ADDR"-->'
  function ipval() {document.myform.ipaddr.value=ip;}
  window.onload=ipval
</script>
<form method="post" action="" name="myform">
  <input type="text" name="ipaddr" readonly>
</form>

So sorry it has taken me so long to do this...

procedure TForm1.ParseURL(AURL: String);
Var
  IDoc:IHTMLDocument2;
  Strm:TSTringStream;
  v:Variant;
  i       : Integer;
  vMeta   : IHTMLMetaElement;
  vAll    : IHTMLElementCollection;
  vElement: IHTMLElement;
begin
  Memo1.Clear;
  Strm:=TSTringStream.create('');
  Idhttp1.Get(AURL,strm);
  Idoc:=CreateComObject(Class_HTMLDocument) as IHTMLDocument2;
  IDoc.designMode:='on';
  while IDoc.readyState<>'complete' do
    Application.ProcessMessages;
  v:=VarArrayCreate([0,0],VarVariant);
  v[0]:= Strm.datastring;
  IDoc.write(PSafeArray(System.TVarData(v).VArray));
  IDoc.designMode:='off';
  while IDoc.readyState<>'complete' do
    Application.ProcessMessages;

  vAll := iDoc.all.tags('INPUT');
  for i:=0 to vAll.Length-1 do
  begin
   vElement:= vAll.item(i, varEmpty);
 
   if (vElement.getAttribute('Name', 0) = 'ipaddr') then
   begin
     Result := vElement.getAttribute('Value', 0);
   end;
  end;
  IDoc := nil;
  Strm.Free;
end;
