I'm trying to retrieve 2 files off the web at 1 time using the "execute" method in the Internet Transfer Control, but everytime it says it's..."still executing last request..".  I want it to happen right when I open a form automatically, but can't seem to figure out how to make it wait for the 1st
file request (URL) and then proceed to the next URL.  These 2 pictures are separate on the form.

Here's what I've got:
----------------------------------------------------------

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim strURL1 as String
    Dim strURL2 as String
    strURL1 = "http://............/pic1.gif"
    strURL2 = "http://............/pic2.gif"
    Inet1.Execute strURL1, "GET"
    Inet1.Execute strURL2, "GET"
End Sub
----------------------------------------------------------

Private Sub Inet1_StateChanged(ByVal State As Integer)
    Dim image() as byte
    Dim intfile as integer

    intfile = Freefile()

    Case 12:
        image() = Inet1.GetChunk(25000, icByteArray)
        Open "C:\temp\pic1.gif" For Binary Access Write As #intfile
        Put #intfile, , image()
        Close #intfile
        Image1.Picture = LoadPicture("c:\temp\pic1.gif")

        image() = Inet1.GetChunk(25000, icByteArray)
        Open "C:\temp\pic2.gif" For Binary Access Write As #intfile
        Put #intfile, , image()
        Close #intfile
        Image2.Picture = LoadPicture("c:\temp\pic2.gif")

End Sub
----------------------------------------------------------

Of course...the above doesn't work...  :)

Appreciate any help!
Thanks,
Fred

change the above code to execute the first command then wait in the StateChanged Event for the Complete command (look in the help for exact constant).  Then Execute the second command.
If the two must happen at the same time then you have to use two INET controls and execute one on the first control and the other on the second control.

Sir, you cannot use "GET" method if it is a website. You must use the openurl and save the file as binary (see msdn for example).
