    Default Re: how to retrieve data from a html file using QWebView QT

    In short, you:
    • Load the web page in QWebView or QWebPage,
    • Indentify the mainFrame() of the page, and
    • Use QWebFrame::findFirstElement() or QWebFrame::findAllElements() to identify the parts of the document you need, or
    • Get the documentElement() and use the functions of QWebElement to navigate the document.
