I am looking for a method in C# that allows me to read client side java script variables<b>or</b>
I cannot seam to get the values for client side javascript variables within a HTTPWebRequest
Suggestions that don't include using a client side browser such as WatiN or incisif.net
Thanks :)

Javascript notes:
When i look at the source code for different types of output on the same secure page.
The source code is identical. I cannot just parse the source code to determine what the javascript is trying to display. Clearly the web server is sending variables to the client some how. Is there a way to show all variables sent to the client via HTTPWebRequest?


Current situation:
The method also must be able to run in the background or scheduled.
C#/WatiN freezes or hangs when a Dialogue pops up for login/password while being run from a scheduled task.
Pumping client side javascript through a browser is not an option apparently.

I have noticed that the javascript code has the following code.

var status = { url:"/status/data.html", req:0, t:0, cb:getData};

I'm guessing this is where the value for the variable is located, but when visiting that link i get the following error.




The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.
