Find characters - stay inside?

Post by greggb » Thu Jan 08, 2009 5:20 pm

I have been reading support pages on relative positioning and finding characters, and I think I can find characters in a page, but once I find them (IF I find them), can I STAY in the page and continue do things, or do I have to exit out of the page and run another script?

Here is what I want to do: Search a page for the word "baseball", if the word is there, extract some data from that page, but if it is not, then I want to exit the page, then start the loop. The reason I am asking is because it takes so much time to actually hit a website (finding, loading, etc.) that if I could just stay in there, the time would be cut considerably.

Is this possible?

No need to exit and again hit the page!!
If at all required do not use 'URL GOTO' so you will remain on the same page!!

Hope it will help, if not give HTML of page. I will try for you!!

Cheers!
