I have a web app that shows input boxes that on submit insert a record into a database. Next to the column of text boxes is an iframe that contains a web page on a remote site, that we cut copy and paste numbers into the text boxes. I wish to auto populate my text boxes by parsing the content in the iframe.
I have purchased the commercial version of ASP tear to return the content as a string for parsing, but haven't had much luck getting it work. Since the iframe uses cookies from other tabs in IE7. The ASP tear component executes on the server, which means it can't' make use of the cookies on the client browser. So i am leaning away from it.
My goal is parse the contents of an iframe. Other experts in a similar question suggested using HTAs but i am unfamiliar with them. Anybody have an example of how to accomplish parsing of iframes using HTAs or javascript?
