Hi all,

I'm new to the forum :)

I made a windows form that has a button, text box and web browser. I use this to connect to our internal intranet and automate some tasks. People will use a customer nr to find a particular case and the select it from the list that pops up. as there should be only one when doing a search with the customer nr, there is only one to select from.
I will need to get also from this the customer name and a number that is in it.

Code:
<A onmousemove="Status(0, 'Company X');" onmouseout="Status(1, '');" class=aThis href="javascript:LinkCase(0,123456,'Company X',0,54321);">Company X</A>
from the above I need to get the number that comes after the 0: "(0,123456
then also the company name that comes ofther the 0 and number: (0,123456,'Company X'
after getting those in a variable, I need to click the link

Any help with this possible?

Greetings.

It's a matter of parsing the HTML to get some text, i.e. a String, and then the appropriate string manipulation. You can parse the HTML in numerous ways, e.g. using the HTML Agility Pack or via the DOM of the WebBrowser control. String manipulation is well documented in many places.

hi, my version of Visual Studio is limited and I can't install those packages :-( I'm stuck to the standard installation of Visual Studio 2010.

hi all,

I tried to use the below code to see if I can get the href and click it.
Not sure if it returns something at all. How can I debug in Visual Studio to see the value?

Code:
