accessing HTML webpage through C# or script RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All:

    I have a HTML webpage as shown below:

    I would like to perform following operations through C# or through any other scrip

    - Select one the check box

    - Click on dropdown list and select one of the lists from there.

    Is it possible to do something like this through C# or any other scripts instead of doing it on the webpage directly?

    Please let me know

    Thank you,

  • If is only small task in the web page, I recommend you to use a google extension IMicros (You can record what to do, and after the macro will repeat the actions for you)

  • You can use UI Automation

    You can do some tests (and see the hierarchy of controls) with Inspect tool from the Windows SDK

  • Hi Shwegc,

    Thank you for posting here.

    Based on your description, you want to perform some operations in a html webpage via c#.

    You could try to use InvokeMember method, I write a simple code for it. Besides, it is a winform application, I used WebBrowser control.


    <div class="resouce myapps-myfolder"title="Cert" isfolder="true" folder-path="Main/Cert"><a class="myapp" title="Cert" href="https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/"> Cert</a>


    private void btnCert_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                HtmlElementCollection links = wbCerner.Document.GetElementsByTagName("a");
                foreach (HtmlElement link in links)
                    var m = link.GetAttribute("title");
                    if (m != null && m == "Cert")
