Simulate web browser - NON VISUAL and simulate cookies & session vars.
Posted on 2005-05-12
I need to find a solution to simulate a web browser. I know how to use the web browser control in a GUI environment, but can it be used in a console application? We have the following goals:
1) store session variables
2) need to do form posts
3) need to support (simulate?) cookies
A client has asked us to log into his site and navigate through to grab one of his files automatically, and this can't be done with a graphical interface and sendkeys. I'm sure there are some evil hackers that don't want to show their face but this is completely legit, and I need to find a way around this ASAP!
How could I do this?
