Downloading files from internet

Hi,

Can I download a file automatically from internet, Just type the internet
adress in a textbox and in another textbox the pad where it will be saved
and then push a button so the downloaded file is automatically saved on the
computer ?

Sorry for my bad English

John,
I have a program called "The Grabber" that does
exactly that. Send me an e-mail, and I can shoot off
a copy of the source code to you.

Thank for responding Randy,

But the problem is that you download and save the whole page, I just want to
download files that are on a particaler site.

Then just specify the file of interest. As long as its a valid destination
whatever you pass will be downloaded to the local machine. My demo just
downloaded a page rather than a zip or mpeg or whatever because that was a
file that was easy to show on the form to indicate success. Try downloading
http://vbnet.mvps.org/files/tools/sharedll.zip - a 28k zip that might be
also turn out to be useful. There are others of different sizes at
http://vbnet.mvps.org/dev/updates/tools.htm you can also try.
