use ODBC driver for mysql then  use CDatabase and CRecordset.

ODBC driver can be downloaded from the Mysql site

I will do the program in visual .net . will be a windows application.
i know about mysql++ but i found only a version for visual c++ 6.0 and its full with bugs.
I need something simple but fast and stable. I'm gonna make a client like yahoo messenger that connect to a site database and retrive new News, articles and downloads.

So any better way ?

-Mihai-: fire a http request from your page to a server. let that server contain the Mysql connection maybe ASP or PHP. and the response of that http should be ur data. this is much better compared to opening the database from n number of places directly

in vc add internet transfer control on a dialog. run the class wizard to make a wrapper around the class. once u have done that create an object of the class and call the openurl method passing the webpage's address the return type of that method is a string containing the webpage's contents. you can find vb samples in msdn too. just convert it to corresponding vc.

-Mihai- : I guess I have provided enough links and said that the example is in VB Its fairly simple to understand and besides I wrote down what you need to do in case of VC. Please try if you are stuck post the code I shall assist you.

All you gaved me was in VB . I never worked in that stupid language so it's preaty hard for me to modify it for VC. I just need a simple example that open a page and retrive something from it.
