Hi, I am new to VB so go gentle with me. I am using VisualStudio 2005 VB (team edition).
It's been a real pain finding examples of retrieving webpage data from a website given a URL (plenty of examples that don't work in visual studio sigh) but I have achieved it to some extent using:
WinHttpReq.Open and WinHttpReq.Send.
My problem is, is that what if the website requires you to login 1st before you can retrieve the data you're interested in? Is this possible within a Visual Studio VB app. Is there a way in the url itself or a library call?
If I login to the site manually (via IE) and say 'remember me', whenever I then reload the page I'm interested in from my bookmark I go straight to the page of interest, but VB doesn't seem to want to use the cookie and instead I get the login screen webpage contents.
I hope I make sense lol.
Thanks for any words of wisdom, if you know how to do it, could you demonstrate in code as well as English. Thanks...
