Reading HTML using QNXStageWebView

Hi guys,


My application makes use of an embedded browser (i.e. QNXStageWebView - similar to what is in the sample RSSReader project).  I am wondering how to read the HTML of the page that was just loaded - does anyone have any ideas or have successfully done this?  I noticed that in the (limited) API for QNXStageWebView there was a method called executeJavaScript which is about the only thing I can think of that might work... but not exactly sure how to use it.....


Any ideas?


Thank you.

Re: Reading HTML using QNXStageWebView

Do you need the raw HTML or do you need a DOM?

Re: Reading HTML using QNXStageWebView

hey _salman_,


would you be able to accomplish this using the URLRequest API along with the URLLoader API and not directly with the QNXStageWebView?


here is a link to the URLRequest API:




and a link to the URLLoader API:




using the two you should be able to retreive the data of a given URL in the QNXStageWebView.

Re: Reading HTML using QNXStageWebView

Thanks for the response guys.


@JCarty: The DOM tree would be good, but I'd settle even for just the raw HTML.  Any ideas?


@JRab:  That is a nice solution, but unless I misunderstood you, wouldn't it be a bit inefficient as the page has already loaded up in the QNXStageWebView and I'd have to make another call using the URLRequest/URLLoader APIs.  I figure that since the component already has to fetch and render the HTML... there must be a way to get at it....


Thanks again.

Re: Reading HTML using QNXStageWebView

You're right that would be a bit inefficient and that wouldn't work with pages relying on sessions and stuff like that (think POST variables)...

I agree, we need a way to access the DOM or the raw HTML!
