I have written an application that communicates with sockets and retreives and sends information to a webpage (with PHP and Login). Now i wanted to use it at work, but I realised that in the office there is no direct connection to the internet. My working computer connect to the internet through a http proxy. So I wanted to make it possible to set a proxy and a port in my program. But I cant find any example programs in this. I have told that it can be done by sending some commands to the proxy and using CR/LF. But I need more specific details on this. So I need an example source or an exmplanion on how to connect and retrieve and send information to a webpage through http proxy with delphi socket components. Or I need a component that can be configured to use a proxy.

Thanks in advance.

Displaying an arrayList in a listView using the default adapter is rarely the best solution. To get full control of your display data, and to be able to refresh it after editing, requires the use of a custom adapter.
