I hope you can help me with this problem.

Hi Ivan
It seem to base on the urlread-function. What I need is to "type" something in to the page and "press" enter. After i get the andwer i would use urlread.
To have a better understanding i send the link of the Page:
greetings

well, I never needed to have it like that, but I'm sure there are a lot of solutions available on the web.
I mean, what do you want from Matlab, that it checks the page a few time per second whether someone pressed some button? There must be an easier way. I assume you already searched the forum for related topics, but can you explain more about your problem? m-file?
