Hi Experts,

I would like to know the possible ways to do the following.

I have a third party website to which I pass argument.

Something like this

http://www.WebSite.com/?Arg1=value1

This website returns data in xml.

So what I want to do is read the xml that is returned when the url is hit.

How can I read the result returned?

Thanks in advance.

string lcUrl = "http://www.west-wind.com/TestPage.wwd";
 
 
 
// *** Establish the request 
 
HttpWebRequest loHttp = 
 
     (HttpWebRequest) WebRequest.Create(lcUrl);
 
 
 
// *** Set properties
 
loHttp.Timeout = 10000;     // 10 secs
 
loHttp.UserAgent = "Code Sample Web Client";
 
 
 
// *** Retrieve request info headers
 
HttpWebResponse loWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse) loHttp.GetResponse();
 
 
 
Encoding enc = Encoding.GetEncoding(1252);  // Windows default Code Page
 
 
 
StreamReader loResponseStream = 
 
   new StreamReader(loWebResponse.GetResponseStream(),enc);
 
 
 
string lcHtml = loResponseStream.ReadToEnd();
 
 
 
loWebResponse.Close();
 
loResponseStream.Close();

Yeah there will be some change in the code:

WebRequest.DefaultWebProxy.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials; 
 
            HttpWebRequest req = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://www.msn.com"); 
 
            //Both works 
 
            req.Proxy.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials; 
 
            //req.Proxy.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials; 
 
            WebResponse rsp = req.GetResponse(); 
 
            Stream s = rsp.GetResponseStream(); 
 
            StreamReader r = new StreamReader(s);
