C#, Webforms, Javascript, and scraping

P: n/a
I have written a fairly simple application in C# that loops through the
forms, and all the children of all the forms, and have generated a tree
view with all the properties. All this works good and well. But now I
have a new problem. Some websites have javascript menus (which can be
embedded or seperate). I was wondering if there was a way to scrape
javascript menus (at least in a way that you can obtain the urls and/or
actions they execute).

Essial,

That would be virtually impossible, in my opinion. The reason for this
is that the menus are implemented in a number of different ways, so you
don't know exactly what you are looking for.

For example, it could be dynamically positioned tables, dynamically
positioned div, span, etc, etc, elements.

There is no "standard".

Hope this helps.
