in thread How to get DOM from currently open IE browser.

Sorry, maybe I misunderstood what methods you meant. I have used the Win23::GuiTest methods to successfully get the window active/foreground. You can get some rudimentary info like URL, and Window title using the examples I've seen on the net. But no examples I've seen get the innerHTML (See the JavaScript sample in my previous reply to see the type of data I hope to retrieve). A Win32::OLE example would look like below. But the GetActiveObject does not seem to work and that is my real problem.
my $currDir = cwd; my $url = "file://" . $currDir . "/osmerrors1.html?5,now"; my $IE; $IE = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject( "InternetExplorer.Application" ); $IE->Navigate($url , 4 ); my $IEurl = $IE->Document->URL;

But I have not seen any examples yet where you can get to the HTML which is what I need. That is why I asked for the specific method you think will do that and I can try those.

BTW, you may have noticed this is my first question here so I need to figure out how you got the stuff in italics at the beginning of you last reply. Did you just cut and paste that and surround it with the "code" stuff?

THX, Nick

[choroba]: When I get that, I usually just reply "Good luck" and move on.
[marto]: I'm sure it's only going to be a matter of hours before someone adds that comment
[marto]: or closes the question because it's a almost the same as one someone else asked, years ago...
[marto]: snackoverflow gamification of editorial powers for the win :/
