I am trying to get thumbnails of webpages to show content of the page.

I have the code to obtain string of HTML and use that to create jpg thumbnail.

The problem is on the pages are tabs, links with "show more.." to JavaScript which then displays more text.

How can I determine in .net c# which text is hidden in this way?

and secondly how do I change page in .net c# before thumbnail generation to display the hidden text behind tabs and links on page?

Thanks

This requires a LOT OF CODING on your part. You have to deconstruct the current working code, and reprogram it to include what you want. You will have to insert a routine that picks up the css code and interpret it to see if it has the hide/show elements.

Thanks I thought it may be very bespoke and heavy code.

If I can in code identify there is a tab with text behind it that was not showing

Is there some code in .net that I can sent in the HTML request that is acts like a "click tab" on the identified tab and then the text would show on the returned string?

Effectively like if I did it manually the HTML page would change.

No, the code are put in the .Net libraries as it is (interpret and show webpage). Everything as exotic as what you like, needs to be programmed by yourself (and you maybe you have to code stuff that's already in the library, but because it's slightly diifferent, you have to start from scratch)
