Hi, I have been working on this for quite a few hours now and can't seem to find a solution!
My knowledge of VB.Net is quite limited and I'm trying to jump in at the deep end, I'm trying to log in to a website (a game in which I play) that requires a username and password, they must be submitted used the POST method and then I need to be able to view the source of the page to obtain further useful data.
This is what I have at the moment and it isn't working for me.
Function postRequest() Dim s As String = "" Dim username As String = txtUserName.Text Dim pass As String = txtPass.Text Dim cookieJar As New CookieContainer() Dim postData As String postData = "login_username=" + username + "&login_password=" + pass + "&serverid=1" Dim request As HttpWebRequest Dim response As HttpWebResponse request = CType(WebRequest.Create("http://site.com/index.php"), HttpWebRequest) request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" request.ContentLength = postData.Length request.Method = "POST" request.AllowAutoRedirect = False request.CookieContainer = cookieJar request.UserAgent = "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20101012 Firefox/3.6.11" Dim requestStream As Stream = request.GetRequestStream() Dim postBytes As Byte() = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(postData) requestStream.Write(postBytes, 0, postBytes.Length) requestStream.Close() response = request.GetResponse() For Each tempCookie As Net.Cookie In response.Cookies cookieJar.Add(tempCookie) Next Using reader As StreamReader = New StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream()) s = reader.ReadToEnd() End Using txtOut.Text = s Return response End Function
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
