Hi
There is a secure RSS feed that I have to monitor. New entries are added to this feed, and I need to kick some code off when this occurs.
Can someone point me to the code I need for this feed?
Thanks

Is it for winforms?

If you use method shown here, you can use user name and password with request

Using winforms.
That code won't compile for me on these two lines
Response.Write("<B><A href='" + link + "' target=new>" + title + "</A></B>")
            Response.Write(description + "")

Open in new window



I get a message that "Response" is not declared.
Also, can you give more detail about where I would add the name and password?
Thanks

I figured it out. You can add NetworkCredential item and that fixes the name and password issue. Code it like this:
Dim Logon As new NetworkCredential(stUser, stPassword)
wr.Credentials = Logon
