VB.Net Automating downloading a CSV file from a website

Hi,

I want to write a VB.net app to automatically download a CSV file from a website.

The website is CEX.IO, and there is a "Download CSV" button at the bottom of the "Balance" page of the site. The site requires a login to get to the button but you can register on the site for free if you want to have a look.

Is it possible to automate the process of logging in to the website and downloading the file?

Thanks,

Richard

Do you go to the Balance page automatically after logging in? If yes, you can search for the button and simulate a click on it using code. Can you show the code you have for log in?
