Hi

I have the following html:

<span class='LocalTime' gmt_time='1360039849'></span>

Open in new window


How can I extract just the number, "1360039849" from this tag using c#?

Thanks

if you have the html as text then u can do:

 string anchor = "gmt_time='";
            int startIndex = html.IndexOf(anchor) + anchor.Length;
            int endIndex = html.IndexOf('\'', startIndex);
            string gmt_time = html.Substring(startIndex, endIndex - startIndex );

Open in new window
