Web Scraping with AutoHotKey 107- using ClassName

web scraping with AutoHotkeyWhen I did my original posts on web scraping with AutoHotkey, I was unaware of ClassName  (getElementsByClassName).

About a year ago I was speaking with Jackie Sztuck from http://jszapp.com (BlackHolyman on the AHK forum) and he introduced me to ClassName.  In the past year I’ve really come to rely on it as my “go-to” for grabbing specific values from a page.   If Name or ID are present I’ll still use them however more and more sites don’t take the time to provide them.

This video demonstrates a few examples where I grab the ClassName.
