Hi All,

Looking to create a DOM in HTML from aload of HTML.

I currently have a program that is capable of getting the HTML from a website and dumping it into a textbox. from this i was to create a DOM.

Anyone have any ideas... this looks perfect....

HTML DOM Using .NET[^]

However, its C# and won't work in VB.

So compile the C# code to a DLL and use it from your VB code.

It should be fairly straightforward to convert the C# into VB, the .NET framework is the same for both so just take it a line or two at a time and you should be OK

C# and VB.Net are so close that going between generally is not that hard. However, you can try this tool

Solution 1

If you use the WebBrowser Class[^], then you can get the DOM direct from the Document property, which is an instance of the HtmlDocument Class[^].

Would you have some sample code please?

This code gets the HTML from a control that is inherited from WebBrowser, and uses the DOM to find particular tables and items within it.
// logout from 3Rings
HtmlElement element = Document.GetElementById("directory_list");
// get the table header collection (one element)
HtmlElementCollection trCollection = element.GetElementsByTagName("THEAD");
// get the header items collection
trCollection = trCollection[0].GetElementsByTagName("TH");
int xName = -1;
int xEmail = -1;
int nIndex = 0;
foreach (HtmlElement trItem in trCollection)
	string strHeading = trItem.InnerText.Trim().ToLower();
	if (strHeading.Equals("name"))
		xName = nIndex;
	if (strHeading.Equals("email"))
		xEmail = nIndex;
The documentation will offer further examples, or you could search the CodeProject articles for more samples.
