Example code for posting data to ASP.NET?

P: n/a
I have seen some examples of client-side code inside an ActiveX
control posting data back to the server in ASP. I have tried the code
and it works well. However, I need to see how this is done using
ASP.NET & VB.NET 2002 without requiring the .NET Framework to be
installed on the client-side browser.

I am writing a web-based system in ASP.NET & VB.NET 2002 that has to
use a VB6 ActiveX control on the client-side to automate Microsoft
Office products on the client-side and the same ActiveX control must
pass data to the server such as the version numbers of the Office
products that are installed. I am only interested in knowing how to
post back data from the ActiveX control, not how to automate Office.
Methods which I have seen working so far used Microsoft XML 3 with
code such as

XMLHTTP.Open "POST", sPage, False
XMLHTTP.setRequestHeader "PICNAME", "MyPic"

I am only interested in sending text data strings to the server,
probably up to 10. I need to see how the data is received in ASP.NET
2002.

Can anyone point me at example code? I know it can be done but I need
to see examples because the explanations of how it is done just fly
over my head!

In theory, what you do client side has not changed, so your control for
posting data to an ASP page could just as easily post data to an ASPX page.
The same request objects exist in asp.net for disseminating the posted data
as exist in asp, you likely only need to translate the server side part of
the example you already have from asp to asp.net.
