Hi!
 I have a program which downloads a file off the internet using an Inet control. The file is on an HTTP server and I'm not sure what to use when I want to get "text.txt" which is located under "www.site.com/text.txt

 Inet1.Execute "http://www.site.com", ??????

How can I make my program proceed AFTER the file has been downloaded? Or how can I find out if the Inet control has finished downloading the file?


Thanks in advance!

Here is an example of how to download a file using the Inet control.  Code will not continue after the Inet1.OpenURL() call until the file has been completely downloaded.

You just need to change the path and fileName variables to the values you need.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim path As String
    Dim fileName As String
    Dim byteData() As Byte
   
    path = "http://www.plgrove.org/america/"
    fileName = "9-11.jpg"

    byteData() = Inet1.OpenURL(path & fileName, icByteArray)
    Open (App.path & "\" & fileName) For Binary Access Write As #1
    Put #1, , byteData()
    Close #1
   
    MsgBox App.path & "\" & fileName, vbInformation, "Download Complete"
End Sub
