Do you see the little model of a hockey rink? Right under it, there is a box which updates live with new "rectangles" of text... I would say it's like a list box which changes it's selected index on mouse overs. I was wondering if I could "get" the new rectangles of text (as a string) that appear in it without having to select/copy all the text on the webpage and having to do crazy string manipulation.
I looked at the page's source (html) and could not find those pieces of text anywhere in it, if I could, I would have just downloaded the page's source every second and done simple string manipulation to find what I wanted.
How would I go about looking in the source code to find what the "source" of all that text is. Or if you could possibly suggest a way to easily "get" those pieces of text, that would be very helpful. My goal is to get that information into a string array within my desktop application (VB.NET) every few seconds, but if that is too hard, I'll try to find another website (to get the text)
EDIT: I used the "inspect element" thing in Google chrome, and it's called a "gcIceTracker play by play scroll pane" or something, and the things in it are called like "events"... That doesn't help though, I want to get something like the text in the "events"
Oh, and I was confused as to where to put this topic, feel free to move it to a more "narrow" forum.
