Post Forms Programmaticall y

Hello,

I would like to know how to post form data programmaticall y. The idea is
to get the intranet web page, programmaticall y entre the username and
password in a login form, post it and be redirected to the logged in
page. So far I have found the code to post data in a form, but I am not
sure if this is the correct way to do it.

Thank you in advance

string url = "http://intranet/app";
HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest )WebRequest.Cre ate(url);
string proxy = null;

//string data = String.Format(" USER={0}&PASSWO RD={1}", "user",
"password") ;
byte[] buffer = Encoding.UTF8.G etBytes(data);

req.Method = "POST";
req.ContentType = "applicatio n/x-www-form-urlencoded";
req.ContentLeng th = buffer.Length;
req.Proxy = new WebProxy(proxy, true); // ignore for local
addresses
req.CookieConta iner = new CookieContainer ();
Stream reqst = req.GetRequestS tream(); // add form data to request
stream
reqst.Write(buf fer, 0, buffer.Length);
reqst.Flush();
reqst.Close();

reqst.Close();
The looks OK when quickly reading it.

What is the problem ?

Hi Arne,

The problem is that when I post the data to the form, I need to open
another URL that is password protected programmaticall y (hence sending
the user name and password first in the login page) and I am not sure
what to do after I run the code that I posted.

Thank you in advance

Hi, I'm not sure if we are able to or even how to loop through the web forms in a VB.NET project during design time. In MSAccess we are able to go through the database -> forms collection and loop through all the forms in a database and pull information about the form (controls and properties). We would need to do the same in our VB.NET project; loop through the project and get the web form's control and property information...

Thank you in advance. Is there a way to programmatically fill an Unbound Form with a command button, using Queries built? I have a program that has about 10 different queries that all fill the same form, same fields etc. So I have 10 queries and 10 forms for each query. I was wondering to keep bloat down, can you programmatically fill a form with ten different queries, if all the fields are identical? If so, How? Michael

Hi, My first post! I've basically taught myself Access and the little I know about VBA through reading these forums and a couple of books. I'm in the middle of a project at work - to put it mildly I've been thrown in at the deep end, in the past I've just done simple databases and that's been fine. Now, however I have to "roll out" various front ends to a single back end for initially 10 users (and the bosses have plans for this to go to...

Hello friends, I have a simple question. If I have an application with several forms, you see on the windows bar, usually on the bottom of your screen, the various tags for the various forms. Now if the bar gets crowded, windows automatically puts all the minimized forms of the same application together, and indicates how many of them are collapsed in that tag.

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,...
