    I can write in vb.net and b4a and have a vb.net app which creates a Mysql hosted online.

    I want to be able to read that Mysql and get records from vb but NOT from b4a.

    I want to read the mysql from my ANDROID app

    I have asked an indian developers to write a class so i can attach to my Android app to read the records.

    I am not sure which language i need them to write it in and how to attach non b4a code.

    Can anyone help out?

    So you should ask your question in a vb.net forum and not here. This forum is about questions on how to do something with B4A. Or i am missing something?

    Yes. I want my b4a app to read the Mysql i created in vb.net. sorry if that was not clear.

    I have read the tutorial about the php script being on the web server but i dont really understand what it means

    1 So i have my credentials ; host db name username and password
    2 in vb.net i have connection string similar to sqllite on local directory using b4a on android
    3 but cant do same on b4a; have connection string to read Mysql. I understand direct read is not possible

    It says to put PHP script on webserver. Not really sure how.

    I create a mysql db and have access to this via myphpadmin and can see tables, and update data.

    And here i am stuck

    Thanks

    I apologise i am just a novice.

    So what you mean is if i copy his code into my b4a app the host port password etc i will be able to read and write records?

    Your Android app will act like any other MySQL client, read, write etc everything...
