webrowser url

Using dotnet webrowser with following page 'http://suncalc.net/#/39.9871,-86.1349,12/2013.04.24/22:06'. Am trying to get string from url whenever page is updated (whenever point is drag-droped on page or date is changed). Any ideas?

Hello, what is your non-working code, exactly?
At least a simple sample of your wrong code so that somebody can help you.

Here's a sample. Commented out stuff I've tried. Not sure if 'on axWeb_GPS Navigated txt do ' is best method or not either. Basically whenever suncalc.net links are tried in browser (firefox) it updates url when data is entered or location is moved. Trying to get same thing here with what updated url is.

rollout ro1lout_GPS "GPS Location" --width:900 height:600

	edittext axWeb_link "" width:850 align:#left

Any ideas on this? Think would involve getting data from javascript here: http://suncalc.net/scripts/main.js which involves 'updateAddressHash'. Not sure how to go about getting this.

I think you can use informations from this link:


on axWeb_GPS Navigated txt do 
    local dnHtmlDoc = ro1lout_GPS.axWeb_GPS.Document;
    local dnHead = (dnHtmlDoc.GetElementsByTagName "head").Item 0;
    local dnScriptElt = dnHtmlDoc.CreateElement "script";

    ..stuck here to cast dnScriptElt into IHTMLScriptElement
    local dnHtmlScriptElement;
    dnHtmlScriptElement.text = "function getAddresshash() { alert('getAddresshash') }";


Unfortunately, I cannot get it working because I do not know how to cast script element into IHTMLScriptElement.

But if someone can get it working, just replace the function text based on "updateAddressHash" function to get the address and set it yourself.

Reading me again, it seems a messy explanation...

Your goal is to update the address bar of the Webbrowser when clicking on the map, as do the online original website.

You can get this newly generated address by writing a javascript function, let's say GetUpdatedAddress() (reusing the code of updateAddressHash() and returning a string).

The problem is to insert the new function in the html code of the page. The link I submit is discussing of that.
Once you get the string of the address as it should be (and as it is in the website), you can modify the address bar string yourself with the value returned by GetUpdatedAddress().

As I said, I didn't managed to get it working because it is using some specific c# stuff that I don't know how to convert in maxscript.
One way would be to compile a derived class of the dotnet browser on-the-fly including a pre-build method InjectScriptCode() method doing the javascript injection by itself.
Then, inject your function GetUpdatedAddress() and call it with InvoKeScript().

I hope I was clear enough this time.
Hope it helps
