not so fast there is a hard part to all this.

Yes I need to download a webpage in vb.net, however I need to simulate a postback before I download the content. I need to simulate the selection of a dropdown list to choose the value 100.

Once that is chosen I want to download the content of the page that would be rendered after the postback is complete.
 
So the recap is that I have a website I need to be able to download on an interval. However the problem is that I need to simulate a postback on the server to tell it to list 100 per page. This is done through dropdown, you can see the markup for the dropdown below.

Thanks in advance

<select name="DropDownList1" onchange="__doPostBack('DropDownList1','')" language="javascript" id="DropDownList1">
	<option selected="selected" value="15">15</option>
	<option value="25">25</option>
	<option value="50">50</option>
 
	<option value="75">75</option>
	<option value="100">100</option>
 
</select>&nbsp;&nbsp;</TD>
