Extracting Links Using VB6

This is an easy way to extract links from a web page using a web browser control and a reference to Microsoft HTML Object Library. This code will extract all links in the href property of the A tag and save them to a text file named urllist.

  • Add a web browser control.
  • Add a List Box
  • Add a command button.

VB Code:


Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim c
    Dim aLink As Object

    For Each aLink In WebBrowser1.Document.All.tags("A")
        List1.AddItem aLink.href
    Next aLink

    Open App.Path & "\urllist.txt" For Output As #1
        For c = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
            Print #1, List1.List(c)
    Close #1
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
    WebBrowser1.Navigate ""
End Sub
