simple question about HttpQueryInfo  (i think)

I am using HttpQueryInfo within a routine that uses WinInet to obtain http header information.

My question is: If i use HttpQueryInfo twice - ie: to get the status code and then call it again to get the status text, is this creating extra issues on the server side...ie: 2 hits?  Or am i missing the point altogether?

I have read as much as i can about Wininet on the microsoft site - which was not very clear in parts - so i am hoping that using HttpQueryInfo several times to obtain header information is not going to make my program "unfriendly" to servers out there.

Can anyone enlighten on all of this?

You hsuold be able to do a:
 HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_CODE or HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_TEXT, for the dwInfoLevel and recieve them both at once.
Though there is no big problem if you make two requests.

wish I could type,
have your second param as:  HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_CODE or HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_TEXT. dwInfoLevel is a combination of flags.

HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_CODE or HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_TEXT doesn't seem to work for me in the code i have been using.

I don't seem to be able to get the information back unless i call HttpQueryInfo several times saving the information off each time....although it is most likely just me getting it wrong
