    Inet and WebBrowser control problems

    Hello!

    My operating system is Windows XP/SP3 with IE8.

    This link: http://adfoc.us/679079050323 works perfectly in Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer 10.

    Internet Explorer 8 does not load anything. I understand that it is a relative URL address and IE8 doesn't know how to interpret the address.

    In my program I tried with Inet and WebBrowser control to load that address but nothing.

    So, please, there is another method to load the address in my program?

    Regards.

    What happens if you insert "www" into the address? You might also try Winsock, or the Firefox browser control.

    Please, be more specific with an example. Where exactly to insert?

    I tried with API Download to Url and nothing. Also tried Mozilla ActiveX, is loading page but unable to extract HTML. Missing (InnerText) command like WebBrowser control.

    Another method check attachment, don't work.

    I think the only method remaining, Winsock. How to use Winsock in this case?

    The Mozilla control may offer a different method for you to extract the HTML, though I've not looked into it.

    After looking at the URL, the main page is a frame, and the URL of that frame is:
    http://opendownloadmanager.com/campaign2/campaign.php?ID=adfocus&sub=adfocus

    It seems that the URL you posted uses some java scripting to direct the browser. I checked using Winsock, and got only that part. So you'll need to use something which is Javascript enabled in order to use the URL you posted.

    Mozilla ActiveX instructions not found.

    Please, a point to start?

    Perhaps if you can explain what it is you want to do with the page content, a solution would be easier to find. There may be other ways to accomplish what you want to do.

    From the address http://adfoc.us/679079050323 i have to download the HTML content into a string variable. Then from string variable get another URL address and this is it.

    Write their email address, and ask how to parse the information!

    I know how to parse the information from HTML.

    Don't think I will be successful but I will write to adfocus to put a normal address for IE8 browsers.

    Thanks everyone!
