We use Quantisense at work, an online database designer. The interface is run entirely online, and the process of running queries consists of going through menus and pressing online buttons to perform various functions. I would like to automate some of these processes using VB code, and my question is how to do the equivalent of pressing online buttons that run java scripts using a web browser control within VB. I have examined the HTML source and can determine the button names, but I'm basically left to decipher html such as the following, which flashes the words "Re-run report" when the cursor moves over the button, to figure out what routine gets run when the user pushes the button with their mouse:
<TD ID=mnT NAME=mnT>Re-run report</TD><TD ID=mnS NAME=mnS> <TD ID=mnE NAME=mnE></TD></TR><TR ID="mb2o11" B=mb2 SB=0 ONMOUSEOVER="OMS(this);" ONMOUSEOUT="OOS(this);" ONCLICK="OCS(this);" T="0" U="Main.aspx?evt=4047&src=Main.aspx.report.frame.rb.4047&fresh=false&rePrompt=false" A=1 E=1 H=0 ><TD ID=mnI NAME=mnI></TD>
I have a fair amount of experience writing VB6 code for the web browser control to perfom sequential processes, such as downloading emails and images; but these transactions are straightforward compared to writing code to duplicate the act of pushing a button that executes a java script. Any insight would be helpful.
Thanks, Peter Ferber
