Enclosed is the source code for an existing dll for sending/receiving information from webpages. However, there are a few problems with it so it has to be recoded from scratch.
First, it was using the webbrowser control. This new version needs to do it without the webbrowser control because it needs to be callable from a webpage and this control cannot be called from a webpage.
Second, it relies on MS Internet Explorer Technology. With Windows 2003 Server Edition, if several instances of the dll is used, then it crashes. Needs to either do it from scratch or use Firefox Technology.
The CHtmlDocParser class can be copied over. The only enhancement required there is for the TextWithLinks method would be to allow if the website is a secure one (https), then it can show up as a link instead of just http and email addresses.
Next, the following methods/properties are not needed for this new control.
needs to do it where nothing is put to cache so if it goes to a webpage, its always uptodate instead of possible old information.
still need to keep session information, handle cookies, etc.
The compiled dll and the source code to the new dll. Plus a sample vb application to show this working properly and a simple ASP application so I can see it can work from ASP as well.
Windows XP Home Edition, Windows 2003 Server Edition.
