Thanks Scotte,

I’m looking for a way of using notation to get the data, so I’m looking at Dave work from EurOmnis 2023.

Great to see at EurOmnis this year as well :)

Thanks

Mike

Hi, Mike --

There should be a way to extract it, but I'm not sure what it is. You can view all the HTML by inspecting it with Chrome, using chrome://inspect/#devices. It will show you the instances inside Omnis of oBrowser and you can drill down and even debug the HTML and Javascript. So there must be some hook that you could use to do this.

Also, when in Windows (not Mac), I'm pretty sure I remember you can right-click to get to a similar debugging window. So the information is there somewhere.

More information starts here: https://www.omnis.net/developers/resources/onlinedocs/index.jsp?detail=Programming/11wincomps.html#obrowser-configuration

Hello Andy,

I did sort of, but EurOmnis work took me away in parts.  I’ll look at this presentation work, available to all EurOmnis attendees, to see what he was on about.  Very clever chap is that Dave, way above my pay grade mostly.

But if you could do a simple load a page in oBrowser, and then get the page back, with or without user entered data, that would be marvellous.  I really only want the page, rather than any interaction at this point.

Ta muchly

Mike Matthews

Mike

Did you get a chance to see David McKeone’s class at EurOmnis on oBrowser interaction ? It was brilliant !

He showed how easy it is to link an oBrowser window in and out of an Omnis app using the Omnis htmlControl

Not the easiest thing to explain in a quick list post - but I’m happy to attempt to try and show you offline if you wish ?? I have been playing around with it since EurOmnis myself !!!

Hello List,

How do you get the contents of an oBrowser field please? I am showing a webpage in an oBrowser field, and now I want to read the HTML text inside.

Thanks
