Hi,
I need to perform a simple HTTP request using Borland C++  builder :
I want to specify a URL and retrieve the HTML into a variable.

How can I do that ?

I checked out HTTPApp unit and TWebRequest etc. but didn't find any proper manual to explain how it works...

Thank you,
ADI.

Hi :)

for a great sample project on using the TWebBrowser/TCppWebBrowser component visit this site

http://www.bytesandmore.de/rad/index.htm

It's in german but has some great code snippets, you can also always use Altavista to translate the site. For specific snippets

http://www.bytesandmore.de/rad/cpp/files/TCppWebBrowserExe.zip

For more snippets visit the Bytamin-c forums and search for TCPPWebBrowser and TWebBrowser.


Another way is to use the Indy components, they come with source, are already bundled with C++Builder6. You can get the latest version

an alternative to Indy is ICS, also free with source

Both component packages comes with plenty of examples to get you started :-)
