From a desktop application, how do I login into a secure website, enter data into forms, navigate screens, and copy data off screens? Id there an example application that shows these topics? I tried the HTTPSocket.post command with a Dictionary of my username and password, but I wasn’t sure how to trigger the Login_Button. If I do get in, how to I execute a browser back function(e.g. in Chrome)? I think I can scrape what I want off the screen using the Get function.
Its also worth noting that scraping data from websites is usually against usage policies.
It’s not difficult if you know how browser works. I’ve created several web crawlers for some companies using Xojo. The most difficult part is dealing with ajax-based website.
