iMacros component as a "Drop-in" webBrowser replacement

Post by BGood » Fri Aug 19, 2011 4:38 pm

I have been programming real estate applications for the past 40 years, and in my current application for commercial real estate, I have been using the .net and COM webbrowsers extensively for database-driven web queries, property and market research, accessing help forums and videos from the deployment website, and delivering pretty rich text/html messages to the user.

Last year I began using the iMacros scripting engine in an attempt to simplify what was (for me) the complex task of programming the .net webbrowsers to access and extract data from the DOM as presented by specific web pages. While the iMacros scripting engine simplified navigation and extraction aspects of this process, the lack of control and chaining structures in the language itself still requires that the iMacros scripts be driven by a .net application code.

I am hoping that the iMacros .net component goes a long way towards providing customized extensibility for my real estate application software, as discussed in the following MSDN threads:
