End If

GetQueryInfo(hRequest, 20))

sendHttpRequest = CInt(GetQueryInfo(hRequest, 19))

closeHandle = InternetCloseHandle(hRequest)

Here the post example (post param are in sOption):

' Envoie une requjte HTTP
' Parametre :
'   sServerName = nom du serveur    Ex: www.mobiquid.com    Attention : Ne pas mettre http://
'   iServerPort = port du serveur   Ex: 80
'   lService = Service internet a utiliser  Ex: INTERNET_SERVICE_HTTP
'   sQuery = VERB http              Ex: GET
'   sObjectName = Objet             Ex: index.htm
'   sOption = Parametre post a envoyer
'   sData = page html de resultat
'   sUserName = Nom de l'utilisateur (optionel)
'   sPassword = Mot de passe (optionel)
' Retourne :
'   Resultat HTTP (200 = OK, 404 = Not found, ..., 999 = probleme inconnu, probablement le serveur repond pas
Public Function sendSMS(sServerName As String, iServerPort As Integer, _
                lService As Long, sQuery As String, sObjectName As String, _
                sOption As String, ByRef sData As String, _
                Optional sUsername As String = "", Optional sPassword As String = "") As Integer
Dim lFlags As Long
Dim lContext As Long
Dim lOption As Long

Dim hSession As Long
Dim hConnect As Long
Dim hRequest As Long
Dim bRequest As Boolean
Dim closeHandle As Boolean
Dim bDoLoop             As Boolean
Dim sReadBuffer         As String * 2048
Dim lNumberOfBytesRead  As Long
Dim bRet                As Boolean
Dim sBuffer As String
Dim sHeader As String

lOption = Len(sOption)

hSession = InternetOpen(scUserAgent, INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_PRECONFIG, vbNullString, vbNullString, 0)
hConnect = InternetConnect(hSession, sServerName, iServerPort, sUsername, sPassword, lService, lFlags, lContext)
hRequest = HttpOpenRequest(hConnect, UCase(sQuery), sObjectName, vbNullString, vbNullString, 0, 0, 0)
bRequest = HttpSendRequest(hRequest, vbNullString, 0, sOption, lOption)

If bRequest = False Then
    sendSMS = 999
   
    closeHandle = InternetCloseHandle(hRequest)
    closeHandle = InternetCloseHandle(hConnect)
    closeHandle = InternetCloseHandle(hSession)
    Exit Function
End If

sendSMS = CInt(GetQueryInfo(hRequest, 19))

closeHandle = InternetCloseHandle(hRequest)
closeHandle = InternetCloseHandle(hConnect)
closeHandle = InternetCloseHandle(hSession)

End Function


Public Function GetQueryInfo(ByVal hHttpRequest As Long, ByVal iInfoLevel As Long) As String

 ' Purpose    : Retrieves header information
 ' Parameters : HttpRequest handle, label to put information in, and infolevel flag
 ' Return val : Success/Failure
 ' Algorithm  : Calls the HttpQueryInfo function and copies result into label

 Dim sBuffer         As String * 1024
 Dim lBufferLength   As Long

 lBufferLength = Len(sBuffer)
 Call HttpQueryInfo(hHttpRequest, iInfoLevel, ByVal sBuffer, lBufferLength, 0)
 GetQueryInfo = Trim$(sBuffer)

End Function



Those example get only the HTTP result code.  If you want to get the result page, add this :

bDoLoop = True
While bDoLoop
    sReadBuffer = vbNullString
    bRet = InternetReadFile(hRequest, sReadBuffer, Len(sReadBuffer), lNumberOfBytesRead)
    sBuffer = sBuffer & Left$(sReadBuffer, lNumberOfBytesRead)
    If Not CBool(lNumberOfBytesRead) Then bDoLoop = False
Wend

Daniel,

he's using the control.  The code you posted is for using the dll (no control).

I've got a working application that does uploads using the internet transfer control. Maybe I could help if I knew where the error occured?  (I ran into a bunch of them making my app)

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

here is the code i use

PData = "xid=" & Xid.Xid & "&submit=submit"
    strURL = Site + "StateSelect.php"
    inetState.URL = strURL + strFormData
    inetState.Execute , "POST", PData, "Content-Type: _ application/x-www-form-urlencoded"

all it does is set the post data and then execute.
     this problem used to come up after a few week of programming normally this code works but after a while the "error '35756'
unable to complete request" comes up nothing using the internet transfer control works?????????????

What are you expecting it to do?  Posting is usually where you submit some form data to a script or page to process.

If you are waiting for a response, then you probably need to have a loop after this Exectute statement that says something like:

While inetState.StillExecuting
   DoEvents
Wend

Now, you might be able to do something with the return value.

The inet control can be limited.  I use a sample class that I downloaded from Microsoft which makes calls to the WININET API.  The control is a little simpler, but the API seems to work a little better.

thanx mdougan i did a search for "WININET API" at microsoft and found a good example of how to POST some variables to, and retrieve the HTML from a script.

that code is good but i have used the Internet Transfer Control for all my code and would have to rewrite heaps.

has anyone ever got a :
"error '35756'unable to complete request"
