how to display info from a web site??

Post

I guess this needs a script but that is totally beyond my skills. Perhaps someone can help?

 

In case you do not know, there are open databases on the net that allow you to enter a domain name and it returns the regsitration information for that name.For example: http://whois.domaintools.com/

 

I have a field that displays a domain name, not a URL (www.domainname.com) just the domain name (domain.com). I want to click on that field, or its label, and return WhoIs in another field.  I do not want to automatically look up the WhoIs because looking up every name for each account woiuld take forever. Only want to do the lookup as wanted for a specific name.

 

So I assume that the script would go to that web page, copy and paste the domain name from the FMP account, launch the search and return the results. The results would then be copy/pasted into a waiting field on my FMP solution - or more elegantly, display a window containing the results.

 

Possible?  Help, please?
