Using Web Viewer, Is there a way to show or calculate when a website has finished loading in a web viewer?

I have a script that pulls the text from the web viewer and inserts it into a text field within filemaker but would like a visual clue or Green Light for my employees once the website has finished loading.

Thoughts?

It's too bad you didn't study the file I have posted in a previous thread of yours:

The script in that file loops, pausing for 1 second each time until the entire HTML document has been loaded:

Set Web Viewer [ Object Name: "wv"; URL:"http://example.com" ]
Loop
  Set Variable [ $html; Value:GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "wv" ;  "content" ) ]
  Exit Loop If [ PatternCount ( $html ; "</html>" ) ]
  Pause/Resume Script [ Duration (seconds): 1 ]
End Loop
#  The rest of the script

The test in this case is the presence of the closing </html> tag. This should work for most web pages, but not all of them conform to the standard - so you might check the specific URL's page source and see.
