Transfer between Win/Web forms, generally

Today I posted the following but have a general question...

"Apologies for the long post. There are three HTML Trans sites I
regularly visit, each of which require a) my choice from a datatable,
b) clicking a button control, and c) selection of a pre-stated value
applying to my choice. I must choose at speed but find this difficult
with miniscule existing screen controls. My colleagues have the same

I want to take controls and values from these sites from the DOM,
reproduce on a large touch screen with large controls for fast (and
sometimes automatic) response, then send the result back to the
originating site's page, and submit that page.

I have no difficulty with the VB.NET for everything except identifying
from the DOM the data and controls of the originating sites (which
have view source turned off by Javascript). I've played around with
streaming and spent days reading books and online but no joy.

Please, how do I do it?

(I posted yesterday but the post seems to have disappeared. This is a
genuine app, desperately needed.)"
I have seen many operators having visual difficulties with controls:
especially accounts and telecoms operators. Whilst these staff can
enlarge screen views they lose other pertinent information they need
to see at the same time. Many of them retire/give up long before
absolutely necessary, with associated loss of income.

Writing expandable controls was immensely difficult/cumbersome in the
"old days" but quite straightforward with VS.Net.

Is there now a case to be made for writing expandable controls,
buttons, datagrids and so on capable of expansion, say, on right
mouse click?
