I need to connect to a webpage that contains a list of documents. Need to grab the next document ID available by reading the top most document.

Can somebody point in the right direction?

I tried the script that comes in the manual but something is not working right.

Thanks.

Hi funsekon,I have a sample script that opens a socket connection and retrieves data from an internet site. I don't know exactly what "grab the next document ID" means, but this sample will at least show how to use the Socket object. Look at script 10.02.FrameMaker ExtendScript Samples - West Street Consulting Russ

reply = "";

conn = new Socket();

// access Adobe’s home page

if (conn.open ("www.adobe.com:80")) {

// send a HTTP GET request

conn.write ("GET /index.html HTTP/1.0\n\n");

// and read the server’s reply

reply = conn.read(99); //999999

conn.close();

Thanks Russ,

Your script is very helpful to understand the process. Seems like my issue may be the firewall blocking access.

Regards,

funsekon
