I am trying to convert a selected span tag's inner text to a string.
<span id="course-text">ELEC1700/ELEC1700 2012 S1: Computer Engineering 1</span>
So the above would become: "ELEC1700/ELEC1700 2012 S1: Computer Engineering 1"
I have tried a couple of combinations using innerText and getAttributes, I just can't get it to work.
string name; WebClient client = new WebClient(); HtmlAgilityPack.HtmlDocument htmlDoc = new HtmlAgilityPack.HtmlDocument(); htmlDoc.Load(new System.IO.StringReader(client.DownloadString(urlTxtBx.Text))); name = htmlDoc.DocumentNode.SelectSingleNode("//span[@id='course-text']").InnerText;
I was missing the client.DownloadString on the urlTxtBx.Text.
Above code now works fine :)
