Watch Question

I believe you can use the Internet Transfer Control component.

Then you can just form the URL as "http:/xxxxxxx.com/receive.asp?name=xxxx" etc and call the inet.OpenURL and passing the URL string.


can you give the full vb6 code please

thankyou experts
Maybe something like the below.

I haven't actually tested it (no server-side script) but it should work. It may require slight modifications if not. Also, you may need to "escape" the characters for pData (such as changing " " into %20 (hex for a space).

Option Explicit
Private Sub Form_Load()
End Sub
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Call FormSubmit("http://www.google.com/response.asp", "the_name", "the_age")
End Sub
Private Sub FormSubmit(ByVal sPath As String, ByVal sName As String, ByVal sAge As String)
    Dim pHdr As String
    Dim pData As String
    pHdr = "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" & vbCrLf & vbCrLf
    pData = "Name=" & sName & "&Age=" & sAge
    If (Inet1.StillExecuting = True) Then
    End If
    Call Inet1.Execute(sPath, "POST", pData, pHdr)
End Sub

1. Go to Project | Component
2. Look for Internet Transfer Control component.
3. Add it into your project.
4. Pick the component from the toolbox and add to your form.
