How does one post to an ASPX page using the WebClient when the form
name is required?


Could you be more specific?

Dim client As New WebClient

client.Headers. Add("Content-Type",
"applicatio n/x-www-form-urlencoded")
Dim myQueryStringCo llection As New
System.Collecti ons.Specialized .NameValueColle ction

myQueryStringCo llection.Add("u sername", "test")
myQueryStringCo llection.Add("p assword", "tickle")

client.QueryStr ing = myQueryStringCo llection
Dim ResponseData As Byte() =
client.Download Data("http://www.mytestsite. com/index.aspx")

From the code above I'm posting the "username" and "password" to the
"index.aspx " page and downloading the page ingo the ResponseData Byte
array. What happens if the index.aspx page has more than one form and
I want to post to a specific form OR if the index.aspx page is
specifically looking for a form name to via the request object??

How can I specifiy the form name when using the WebClient class to
post information to a page/form??

WebClient.Query String gets/sets the query string. You are downloading from

http://www.mytestsite.com/index.aspx...assword=tickle.

You aren't POSTing at all, you're using a GET.

See a recent thread in this newsgroup called "Going crazy over HTTP Post
from class library". Make sure you read the entire thread!

I'm essentially trying to do what a lot of users seem to want when using the above classes, and that's POST to a webpage. Well, I'm golden when it comes to POSTing, I've been able to post to websites using both the webrequest/response and webclient methods. However, the problem I'm running into with both options is I seem to "lose" my connection/session. Let me try to explain a little better. I connect to a website which

Hi folks! I tried to post a web form using the WebClient class and HttpWebRequest/HttpWebResponse. It didn't work for the ASPX web pages. I always got an unposted version - like if I had just made a simple request without posting anything. I have written the same thing using the Perl's LWD::UserAgent class and it was the same. The web form is really very simple. As soon as I created the ASP file with the same form everything worked! Does...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
