I am trying to parse an online calendar to have the events posted on that calendar display in my cross-platform app. This is the code that I have so far.
var html = @"http://html-agility-pack.net/"; HtmlWeb web = new HtmlWeb(); HtmlDocument htmldoc = new HtmlAgilityPack.HtmlDocument(); var htmlDoc = web.LoadFromWebAsync(html); HtmlNodeCollection node=htmlDoc.DocumentNode.SelectSingleNode("//body");
The error I am getting is:
"'Task HtmlDocument' does not contain a definition for "DocumentNode' and no extension method 'DocumentNode' accepting a first argument of type 'Task HtmlDocument' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?"
I installed HtmlAgilityPack using the NuGet package manager in Xamarin so it is in my references for the entire project and I am using "using HtmlAgilityPack;" I viewed the HAP in the object browser and there is clearly a "DocumentNode"property which is why I am confused as to why it doesn't think there is.
I don't know what it is that I am missing, please help.
you need to use await when calling an async method
// htmlDoc is a Task<HtmlDocument> var htmlDoc = web.LoadFromWebAsync(html); // htmlDoc is a HtmlDocument var htmlDoc = await web.LoadFromWebAsync(html);
