considering your other question:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/Q_28330657.html#a39756517

if you do apply that div technique to hide, you can quite easily do it with html or xml parser.
in any case, you can do it with a regular expression

using System.Text.RegularExpressions;

Match match = Regex.Match(your_string, @"ID:\s*([0-9]+)\s");

Open in new window

and the match object should give you the properties to get the ID value then.

You can use the Substring method of the string class.

If the ID is always 3 characters, then use the following:

yourString.Substring(4, 3);

Otherwise:

yourString.Substring(4,yourString.IndexOf(' ',4)-4);
