    Hi, in my latest code, i'm using the http dll, in order to get some info on a specific web page...
    my problem is that this page require login, in a previous page, so I need to do some trimming of some strings...
    I believe to have the login part done, but when i try to reach the login page with the login info, I get one of two error, depending on the method I use...
    With method "Get":

    "The strem was not readable"

    With Method "POST"

    "The remote server returned an error: (411) Length Required"

    What does this mean, and are the results of each usable method, what do they do?

    PS...My loging string is like this:"1217078018"&edb0889="GALHUDO"&ee09d76="VITOR68"&ec03ff1=""

    When I enter this URL in my browser (which is equivalent to GET method) it takes me to the login page.

    When you use the POST method you should first set the ContentLength property.

    Ok, so how can I know the value...
    Is it just the sum of all the letters in the sentence after the "normal" url?

    Aproaching the problem in a different way...
    If I use the WebBrowser dll, with the http, after login in and loading the page I wich to extrat the data from, will I be able to "Read" that page?

    Not on a device. From my WebBroswer help . "It is not possible to access the text of the browser whether set by DocumentText or by navigating to a URL". On the device the DocumentText property is write only.

    However on the desktop DocumentText is readable. As you appear to have already recompiled my source just add a get for the DocumentText property to the source and recompile. That should give you access to the HTML - no guarantees as I haven't tried it as I kept the WebBrowser capability to that of the device to avoid having two libraries.

    Ok, so I went back to basis and re-engineered Andrews WebBrowser dll, added 2 new props and 1 new method, and altered one Write only prop to be I/O, and I finaly got things started....

    Thanks for ALL your's been priceless...
