New article Extracting structured data from HTML pages using CSS selectors has been published:
The article provides a description of a universal method for analyzing and converting data from HTML documents based on CSS selectors. Trading reports, tester reports, your favorite economic calendars, public signals, account monitoring and additional online quote sources will become available straight from MQL.
Traders often deal with standard HTML files, such as testing
reports and trading reports generated by MetaTrader. Such files can be received from other traders or downloaded from the Internet. The good idea is to visualize the data on a chart for further analysis. For this
purpose data from HTML should be converted to a tabular view (to the CSV
format in a simple case).
CSS selector in this utility application can automate this process.
Let us have a look inside the HTML files. Below is the appearance
and part of HTML code of the MetaTrader 5 trading report (the
ReportHistory.html file is attached below).
