Formulas inside of iMacros for Chrome

Post by Manassasralph » Tue Oct 13, 2020 8:28 pm

I am new to iMacros for Chrome. I apologize if this is the wrong place to post.

I need to extract a number from a web site, perform a calculation, then insert the result back into the web page.

Can iMacros for Chrome do this?

If so, where do I go for instruction?

Thread approved but this is indeed the "wrong place to post", as your Thread/Scenario has nothing specific to the 'iMacros for CR' Sub-Forum, all Versions of iMacros in all 4 Browsers supported by iMacros support the Functionality that you want...
Correct Sub-Forum would have been the 'Data-Extraction' one, or the 'General' Sub-Forum (which is always OK if you are "unsure"...).
(And pay attention to select the "correct" Sub-Forum when you open a Thread or I don't react/help... (for next time)... :!: )

>>>

Then yep, the Functionality that you want is fairly "Basic" and "Standard" Functionality for iMacros... 8) , => to implement using the 'EXTRACT' Mechanism, then 'EVAL()' for the Calculation/Data Manipulation, and the 'TAG' or 'EVENT' Mode to reinsert the Result back into the Page... :idea:
- (F)CI(M) = (Full) Config Info (Missing): iMacros + Browser + OS (+ all 3 Versions + 'Free'/'PE').
- I don't even read the Qt if that (required) Info is not mentioned...!
- Script & URL help a lot for more "educated" Help...

OK, good... :D

And post/share maybe your Script/Solution once you'll have managed to implement the Functionality that you want..., that could help other Users, and I'll probably be able to improve/tune your Script a bit... :idea:

(And you may want to read the Forum Rules if you ever need to open a Thread again..., or get "stuck' in this one and need some further Help... And read my Sig also... :idea: )
