Internet Control: search HTML of displayed page

How do I search the HTML of a loaded page for a certain string?

I'm trying to find "of about xxx" where XXX is some number.  I'd like that number.  Regex maybe?

Thanks,

you can try something like this, get the html of the page displayed in to a string and search for the position of the string "of about" starting from that position + 9, search for a space and extract the string in between the two positions.

eample

dim strBody as string
dim strNum as string
dim intStart as integer, intEnd as integer

strBody = webbrowser1.document.body.innerHTML
intStart = instr(strBody,"of about")
if intStart <>0 then
      intEnd= instr(intStart +9, strbody, " ")
      strNum = mid(strBody,intStart+9,intEnd)
       msgbox strNum
else
      msgbox "String not found"
endif
