Hi all,


Im using HTMLagilitypack to get a sites html but the issue is its not loading all the content.
I belive this is do to the fact that a javascript file populates all the information..

Is it possible to change my current code so it pulls the html AFTER the JavaScript has done its work??

   Dim htmlWeb As New HtmlWeb()

        Dim document As HtmlAgilityPack.HtmlDocument = htmlWeb.Load(DownloadDataInBackground("http://www.futbol24.com/Live/"))
        test.Text = document.DocumentNode.InnerHtml

You have to use a rendering engine, such as Webbrowser control, to render the website so that Javascript can do its magic. Then the HTML document would contain the scores that you are looking for.
