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?

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

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.

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

I am still unable to get both bits of information in one call using HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_CODE or HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_TEXT.

Anyone able to help?

I'll leave this question open for another day before closing it.
