Hi Joe,

Using Windows 10 64bit latest updates. I run the script, I do see the tray icon and the menu but I don't see a window popup or anything else. I clicked on the tray icon and selected reload, and still no luck. I checked the code to see if I need to use a hotkey to trigger it, but I didn't notice anything.

Hi Joe

Quick question

Right now when I write a script that does some scraping, I have it set to close the IE by using pwb.quit() once its done.

Is there an equivalent of that within the syntax writer? I looked in the menus and also did a search on the code but did not find quit()

Thanks

Hi Joe!

I just wanted to pose a big THANK YOU for these tutorials and iWB2. I often have to lookup information on a website at work and now I can do it by pressing one button. I kept putting off the automation because I thought it would be very time consuming to learn everything I needed to learn, but your tutorials and app got me up and running in a couple days. I save between 70 to 80 keystrokes/mouse clicks every time I look something up now. Just awesome.

Sorry, I didn't see this when it came through. Glad it helped! Web Scraping is one of my favorite tools to have in my toolbox!
