Hello. I am trying to get away from webbrowsercontrol for a number of reasons, mainly because its slow and bloated and i have a bot i eventually want to multi-thread (another topic all together!) Anyway, i have been reading some tuts and just generally playing about in VB 2010 expess. I can get my bot to post, but i need to get a value from the page. I can get the page source into a string with a streamreader, but dont know how to parse the data in the string to get what i want. Basically the page contains: HTML: lots of html <input name="example_name" value="123"> lots of html And i need to save that value to a variable. Any ideas?
