how to pull a response from external webpage search box

Post by David wyatt »

Hi,
im trying use a user request in my app to search a shopping website and show the result. ive tried to create a service but cant locate any json or jsonp files. by inspecting the pages elements all ive discovered is it routes through the following address with the q variable changing e.g searched for coat
http://www.tkmaxx.com/search?q=coat&c...

can anyone point me in the right direction.

thanks

Dear David,

You can get data from server if it returns it as JSON or XML (http://devcenter.appery.io/documentat... ). If this is your site add the needed format of returned data.

Or you can parse a page manually sending requests via AJAX: http://api.jquery.com/jquery.ajax/
