Downloading Images

Post by Tech Support » Thu Nov 09, 2006 8:33 am

Downloading images from a website can be done in a number of ways:

1) Use savepictureas feature by adding the CONTENT attribute to a TAG command, as described in the online user manual:

TAG POS=1 TYPE=IMG ATTR=HREF:http://www.iopus.com/ CONTENT=EVENT:SAVEPICTUREAS

2) Extract the URL of the image and display this in the browser. Use SAVEAS to save the image.

Code: Select all

VERSION BUILD=5211028
TAB T=1
TAB CLOSEALLOTHERS
URL GOTO=[i]yourwebsite[/i]
SIZE X=801 Y=624
'extract the URL of the image eg.
EXTRACT POS=6 TYPE=HREF ATTR=<IMG<SP>alt=*
URL GOTO={{!EXTRACT}}
SAVEAS TYPE=CPL FOLDER=* FILE=*
