Hello everyone.
 
Yesterday I asked a question regarding how to regex out a multiline paragraph from a html source.
Today I have found a new and better approach to my probable.
 
This new approach involves getting an exported .CVS File. This file contains the information I need.
I have no problems navigating through the file once we figure how to download it.
 
You may be thinking why not use this:
Sub SubDownloadFile()
 
 Dim XLocation As String = CStr("http://www.MyClientsWebsite.com.au/agentdesktop/export/csv?type=Residential&agent=all&&order_by=CREATED_DESC") ' As you can see this is not a direct file location.

 My.Computer.Network.DownloadFile(XLocation, (CurDir.ToString.TrimEnd("\") & "\source.cvs")) ' downloads XLocation to the current directory and names the file source.cvs

 End Sub
 
The website requires a user to login to it.
I am using a Webbrowser control to login and navigate through the site.
This is why I think the .DownloadFile function will not work because of the session or something.
The whole idea of my project is automation in the background.
 
Maybe I could just navigate to it and IDK well that would defeat its job of automation everything in the background.
 

Any help or advice is much appreciated.

Hello,
 
I think the issue is with the sessions and cookies or something.
Is there a way to grab the session from the WebBrowser contol and use that with the Network.DownloadFile function you see above???

Hello,
 
PLease use the code snippet similar to shown below to download the remote file.
 
Dim XLocation As String = CStr("http://www.MyClientsWebsite.com.au/agentdesktop/export/csv?type=Residential&agent=all&&order_by=CREATED_DESC")
// Create a new WebClient instance.
Dim WebClient myWebClient = new WebClient();
Console.WriteLine("Downloading File \"{0}\"\n", XLocation);
// Download the Web resource and save it into the current filesystem folder.
myWebClient.DownloadFile(XLocation,"foo.csv");
