Automate Save As dialog in Internet Explorer from a VB6 or .NET App
Posted on 2004-08-06
I am trying to automate the process of order retrieval from a customers ASP app using a VB6 app to open up IE , navigate to the customers site, login, then retrieve the orders from the appropriate page.
I coded to the point where I am at the page with the list of orders. I want to automatically save this page locally. I will then be reading each line of the saved page for the link and then navigating to that page and saving that out as a text file for parsing into our SQL server.
The problem I am having is I can not find the documentation tell me how to do the “save as” once I have navigated to the page.
Does IE's object allow this?
Any direction or help would be greatly appreciated.
