Hi,

I have already discussed this but i got a clarity on the concept so asking again.

1. There is a website in remote machine.I need to open in internet explorer.
2. I do have a data in that where i need to login to that site and click on the particular tab and select the particular index in the dropdown.
3. Then i wiil get the required information where.

Now my task is, i need to create a windows application where i have to login to machine remotely and fetch the data.

Can anyone help me on this whether we can do this through windows application? Thanks in advance.

What I have tried:

I tried with web browser control but using that gives no time consuming instead of opening in internet explorer, it will open in web browser.
We do not have backend access.

I believe the original question got advice to contact the owner / admin of the site and request access?

Anyhow, there are .NET classes such as HttpClient that can be used to access the page(s) you require. Play around a bit and see if that is any faster then browser access.

I tried logging into website so i felt like it works with javascript and below is my code:

<html>
<title>Ikariam Autologin</title>
</head>
<body>
<form id="loginForm" name="loginForm" method="post" action="http:www.gmail.com">
<select name="uni_url" id="logServer" class="validate[required]">
<option class="" value="ID@gmail.com" fbUrl="" cookieName="" >
Test_en
</option>
</select>
<input id="loginName" name="name" type="text" value="PlayersName" class="" />
<input id="loginPassword" name="password" type="password" value="Site_Password" class="" />
<input type="hidden" id="loginKid" name="kid" value=""/>
</form>


<script>document.loginForm.submit();</script>

I'm not getting any error but i'm getting a combobox, texbox1 (with text inside "PlayersName"), textbox2 (dotsssss).

this article describes a good approach to web-scraping Webscraping with C#[^]

there are plenty of article on the web about using a web browser control for scraping, but you dont supply enough information to say why it didnt work for you ... sorry, you supply 'some information', but I dont know what you really mean by
