Response ExtractFromEnd Method (List String , String, String, Boolean)C# API
Extracts text from the response content starting from the end. Everything between (but not including) the specified list of after and before string objects will be returned.

Namespace: Facilita.Web
Assembly: clrWebBrowser (in clrWebBrowser.dll) Version: 9.4.0.26 (1.0.0.0)
Syntax

public virtual string ExtractFromEnd(
	List<string> after,
	string before,
	string defaultValue,
	bool caseSensitive
)

Parameters

after
Type: System.Collections.Generic List String 
Each string in this List is searched for sequentially in the response content, and the returned string starts immediately before all the string objects have been matched in the content.
before
Type: System String
This text is searched for in the response content after the after text has been found, and the returned string ends immediately after this text occurs in the content.
defaultValue
Type: System String
The value to return if either the before or after text cannot be found.
caseSensitive
Type: System Boolean
true if the search should be case-sensitive.

Return Value

The extracted text, or defaultValue if the extract failed.
Remarks

Supplying a List<string> of after values enables you to express more complicated extraction patterns. eggPlant Performance searches for the first string in the list, and searches for the second string after the position at which the first string was found. This continues until the final string is matched, after which the extracted response content is returned until before is matched.
Examples

Response response = request.Send();

// extract the selected value from the HTML text 
// <select> 
//    <option value="volvo">Volvo</option> 
//    <option value="saab">Saab</option> 
//    <option value="vw">VW</option> 
//    <option value="audi" selected>Audi</option> 
// </select>

List<string> after = new List<string>();
after.Add("</select>");
after.Add("selected");
after.Add("\"");

string extractedText = response.ExtractFromEnd(
                        after,
                        "value=\"",
                        "Volvo",
                        true);
