    Are they images? Text? in tables?

    What techniques have you tried so far?

    Please be more specific.

    Mainly images(jpeg's and gif's) or swf's.

    What i'm trying to is to go to the web page, capture and store all objects with teir physical properties and then somehow sort them out or search the properties for ads.

    I haven't tried saving the page source and looking for add links in it yet...

    Another problem is that i don't know how to distinguish between the add on the page and the other images on the page.

    Thanks,

    Ivan

    Re: Capturing all adds on the web page

    You may need to look at the properties for each individual object and look for a trend, or keywords in the URL (for example ad.php/) and then perhaps assume that is an ad? (risky)
    Use the Test Object Inspector to start with. Then write down the properties you want and find them with the script. There are lots of documents on finding objects using TestObject and find() method.
    Remember you can use regex in the find criteria.

    do a "get children" on the page and filter out all the images.
