Capture FAX and PHONE numbers in IE using Vb.NET

Posted on 2005-04-08
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I need the following:

I have a VB.NET application that runs on a user's desktop. I need the ability to highlight a FAX or PHONE number in Internet Explorer (That the Client VB.NET recognizes on its own) then, have the ability to right-click on the Fax or Phone number and be able to save the number to a Text file.

Any ideas?

    Hi again...

       I tried asking you this on your other post...   different countries are going to have different numbers or at least grouping conventions (not a programming problem)... so it would help if you let us know which kinds of grouping conventions you're interested in... then we can just make up a regular expression to parse the innerText of a webpage or something
