Hi Experts,

I am downloading a website's source text into a string using the following code.

Dim sourceString As String = New System.Net.WebClient().DownloadString("website.com")

The problem I am having is that the downloaded text assumes I have not logged in. When I load the site from my browser the site assumes I am logged in via a stored cookie I presume. How can I present the cookie before downloading the source text?

To use default (cached) login:
Dim wc = New System.Net.WebClient
wc.UseDefaultCredentials = True

Open in new window

To pass credentials:
wc.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("username", "password", "domain")

Open in new window
