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

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
