Post by Programlover » Wed Jan 29, 2020 10:04 am

Hi,
I have a simple API made by a service, send the API request to simple html page ( random and unlimited requests per day)
i want iMacros to monitor any change to "<input type=“text”>" if the text changed to any new value, it run and scrape google in TAB=2
if the <input type=“text”> doesn't change nothing happen and keep waiting for a new vale...
the Macro should work with chrome.
I Love iMacros :D

Yep, exactly, "one" of the Reasons I didn't react to this Thread, tja...! :|

Maybe an "Idea" @OP to read the Forum Rules (again?), "one day", I've already asked you to mention your FCI when you open a Thread or post for the 1st time in some existing Thread, but you never complied/followed up...

And PLEASE, try to select the "correct" Sub-Forum when you open a Thread, this one has probably nothing specific to the 'iMacros for CR' Sub-Forum, especially if you don't even mention your FCI..., "the Macro should work with chrome." is not "good enough"...
=> Thread will eventually get moved (by the Forum Admin, I can't do it myself...) to the 'Data Extraction' Sub-Forum...

And (repeatedly) opening Threads in some "random" Sub-Forum, requiring hassle with bothering the Forum Admin, is a Show-Stopper for me to (further) help Users, just saying...! :!:
(And when "in doubt" and if you "were not sure" for which Sub-Forum to choose, you can mention it in your OP, and the 'General' one is always OK otherwise...)
- (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...

Yes...! => BEHAVE...!! :twisted:

But, a bit more "seriously", "Forum Admin" = @TechSup, and @TechSup check(s) the Forum only from time to time, usually to answer Threads I have "soft"-alerted them to have a Look at because I can't answer them, (mostly about 'Dot.Net' + 'Scripting Interface' + Licensing'), or in case of a (real) Bug, and they will also delete Spam that "managed" to bypass my "Watch", or move Threads from one Sub-Forum to another one because some Users couldn't be bothered to think for 3 Sec in which Sub-Forum they should open their Thread..., which is always a bit of a waste of time for @TechSup as they would rather spend that time answering more Threads...

=> Everybody and the whole Forum Community would benefit from "paying a bit of Attention" with the Forum Rules, and putting a bit of Quality in their Threads... "Quality Questions" mean "Quality Answers" that are not only useful for the "Asker" but also for other Users searching the Forum with a similar Qt/Case/Scenario and that will be "Happy" to find Quality Threads with Quality Answers... :idea:
