Grabbing content from an external web server
Posted on 2004-10-03
The application in question is ASP.NET / C#. I have a webform with some text boxes, and it submits via the POST method to a web server out of my control. That web server displays a report in html to the user in the browser window.
What I would like to do is:
- Keep the user on my site instead of leaving to the other site.
- Save the contents of the report to a database.
- Show the report in a new browser window from the content stored in the database in the previous step.
Can somebody point me in the right direction on how to do this?
