I'm using SHDocVw.InternetExplorer object to write a screen scraper app.   Now, when I navigate to the main page, I check the ReadyState and Busy properties to determine when the page is completely loaded.  

These value remain unchanged - ReadyState =4 and Busy = false - when I programmatically click on an HTML element that causes a Ajax request.  How do I determine when the Ajax partial page update is completed?
