Hi im pretty much a total vb nub at the moment but im trying to learn. Anyway I've been trying to find out how i could load a random http proxy like 18.104.22.168:9090 from a txt file. I know how to load a random url but Im failing at doing this. Any help would be really appreciated :) Thanks
Anyway I've been trying to find out how i could load a random http proxy like 22.214.171.124:9090 from a txt file.
May I ask why you wish to do this... I'm hoping it is all strictly legal (a few friends have asked me about HTML proxies for illegal purposes and I refused to help them). I shall help you to read a random URL from a file though because then it is up to you what you choose to modify that to do.

I'm assuming that because you know how to load a random URL that you only need to know how to read a random string from a file. That is what I intend to do with the next piece of code...
Dim randGen As New Random() Dim randNum As Integer Dim filePath As String = "textfile.txt" Dim fileReader As System.IO.StreamReader Dim randURL As String fileReader = New StreamReader(filePath) For i = 1 To randNum 'Loop through to the random line replacing randURL each time until a random line in effect randURL = fileReader.ReadLine Next fileReader.Close()
I hope this helps to clear up your issue and sorry if I came across a bit strong to do with what you may be using this code for it is just a topical issue that we all need to be careful about.
