Getting HTML from oBrowser

Hi Will,

You could grab the $currenturl property and use the HTTPPage command to request it directly in Omnis. The downside is that you have to request the page twice, and if the page title is dynamically changed on the page you won't get the current value.

Perhaps you could roll a simple JS component with a javascript function you can call from Omnis that populates the page title in a property. I don't have too much experience doing this, but I understand it should be possible.
