Is there a way, in Visual Basic, to pull a piece of data (for example, a number) from a webpage that is generated entirely with JavaScript and HTML? I want to create a way for my application to find updates on the internet, and I want to find out if this is a good way to do it.

So, VB.NET or VB? They are different things?

Well, any version of VB from VB.NET onward...

I answered for .NET, so you can use VB.NET. I don't even want to discuss VB. And it has nearly nothing to do with VB.NET. I cannot imagine you want to support both...

I don't... I stopped using VB a long time ago. Thank you for answering, by the way.

This is called Web scraping, please see:[^].

With .NET, you need to use the class System.Net.HttpWebRequest, please see:[^].

See some code sample here:[^].
