as you mentioned you did it in winforms, so just guessing there must be parameters like userid and password which third party website will accept.
say you want user to go to other url in that case you can use a hyperlink or standard button then in  button_click event you can write


hope that helps.

Just for an example If I want to pass the username and password, would I use response.redirect("'"+userid+"'&password='"+password+"'"). I will use their username and password parameteres but just wanted to know if this is the right command.

I tried the following but it did not work. Am I doing something wrong:

Dim username As String = "usernameTest"
Dim password As String = "PasswordTest"
Response.Redirect("'" + username + "'&usr_password='" + password + "'")

hi sandya,
are you getting any error ? does that site expect usr_name & usr_password as the parameters or not? i think its wrong url that your are using it should be something like
https://cld.countrywide.come/login_or_anyPage.extension asp or aspx whatever?usr_name='" + value + "'&usr_password='"+password+"'".

Hi sandya_116,

Not every website will allow you to login to their site using querystring parameters. Not only is there a chance it's using a form post instead of a form get method, but also it could be possible that a check is made what the referring URL is. If that URL is not the website URL, they will block the login. When you were using webforms, that was different, as there is no referring URL.

It is not an asp site and the site I am using expects usr_name & usr_password as the parameters. I following the same parameters in vb and passed the username and password and it worked.

Response.redirect works for some websites but not for some websites. I don't know what the problem is. Can someone please tell me how to pass the value of a radio button inside the url. I need to click a radio button on the url. Thanks.
