Parse a friends page on MySpace

Basically I'm trying to parse my friends page on MySpace. It's easy to get Page 1.

I can use "MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP" to get the page and parse all my friends. The question is, how do I get page 2 and page 3 and so on?

There's a simple Javascript post on the page, eg to get page 4 it's

javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$cpMain$pagerTop','4 ')

How can I automate this "Post". Can you somehow send this __doPostBack function to the page?

I want to store all my friends on my computer as a backup and doing it manually would take forever. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks, Kitten.

Look at the query string for each additional page, then just do a loop in ASP to get each page, until you find "Error, page not found" or whatever it happens to be on MySpace. I have done this for many situations like this.

So you can loop like (Ce careful not to cause an endless loop:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. do until ISayStop (Or for x = 1 to 100, etc.)
  3.     x = x + 1
  4.     xVar = getSrc("http://myspace.com/page?page=" & x)
  6.     if instr(1,xVar,"None Found",1) then
  7.         exit do (I think)
  8.     else
  9.         doparsingstuff
  10.     end if
  12. loop
