Convert VB into lotusscript / XML

I have a "Desktop application" that needs to post a "Zip/Post code" that is validated and return various values.

I want it so the User enters the zip/post code in a field then uses a button to send/receive the data. To a 3rd party validation company.

It can return up to 15 results of :- number,address1,address2,address3,town,county,... per Zip/post code

User then selects one, I want to then post the one selected again to return the exact :- number,address1,address2,address3,town,county,... and from its result populate various address fields.

I have been supplied an example of the code in Visual basic and need to convert it in Lotusscript. Or perhaps into xml ???

See example VB code.


Const ACCOUNTCODE = "AAAAA11111"
Const LICENSEKEY = "AA11-AA11-AA11-AA11"

Dim objRst As Recordset

Private Sub btnFind_Click()

Dim strUrl As String

'Build the URL
strUrl = "http://services.postcodecheck.com/recordset.aspx?"
strUrl = strUrl & "action=lookup"
strUrl = strUrl & "&account_code=" & ACCOUNTCODE
strUrl = strUrl & "&license_code=" & LICENSEKEY
strUrl = strUrl & "&postcode=" & Me.txtPostcode

'Get the data from Postcode Anywhere
Set objRst = New Recordset
objRst.Open strUrl

'Populate the list
lstProperties.Clear
While Not objRst.EOF
lstProperties.AddItem objRst.Fields("description")
objRst.MoveNext
Wend

End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

End Sub

Private Sub Label1_Click()

End Sub

Private Sub lblAddress_Click()

End Sub

Private Sub lstProperties_DblClick()

Dim strUrl As String
Dim objRstAddress As Recordset
Dim strLabel As String

'Find the selected item in the recordset to get the id
objRst.MoveFirst
objRst.Move lstProperties.ListIndex

'Build the URL
strUrl = "http://services.postcodecheck.com/recordset.aspx?"
strUrl = strUrl & "action=fetch"
strUrl = strUrl & "&account_code=" & ACCOUNTCODE
strUrl = strUrl & "&license_code=" & LICENSEKEY
strUrl = strUrl & "&id=" & objRst.Fields("id")

'Get the data from Postcode Anywhere
Set objRstAddress = New Recordset
objRstAddress.Open strUrl

'Write the label
strLabel = ""
If objRstAddress.Fields("organisation_name") <> "" Then
strLabel = strLabel & objRstAddress.Fields("organisation_name") & vbCrLf
End If
If objRstAddress.Fields("line1") <> "" Then
strLabel = strLabel & objRstAddress.Fields("line1") & vbCrLf
End If
If objRstAddress.Fields("line2") <> "" Then
strLabel = strLabel & objRstAddress.Fields("line2") & vbCrLf
End If
If objRstAddress.Fields("line3") <> "" Then
strLabel = strLabel & objRstAddress.Fields("line3") & vbCrLf
End If
If objRstAddress.Fields("post_town") <> "" Then
strLabel = strLabel & objRstAddress.Fields("post_town") & vbCrLf
End If
If objRstAddress.Fields("county") <> "" Then
strLabel = strLabel & objRstAddress.Fields("county") & vbCrLf
End If
If objRstAddress.Fields("postcode") <> "" Then
strLabel = strLabel & objRstAddress.Fields("postcode") & vbCrLf
End If
Me.lblAddress.Caption = strLabel


End Sub

Private Sub txtPostcode_Change()

End Sub

The problem is there is no such "recordset" object.  Can you forward the definition of that object?

Use GetDocumentByUrl it provides simialr functionailty, though you will have to do more parsing of the results yourself.
