Hi All,

I am trying to build an app using VS2012, windows 8. It will display Harvest project([^]).

It wil be a simple call to Authenticate a user and to reterive information after authentication.

see below that's far i have gone:
 HttpClientHandler handler= new HttpClientHandler();
  WebRequest httpRequestLogin ;
  WebResponse loginResponse ;
  System.Net.CredentialCache cred = new CredentialCache();
  HttpResponseMessage r;
  string str;
 httpRequestLogin = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(uri);
cred.Add(new System.Uri(uri), "Basic", new System.Net.NetworkCredential("username", "password"));
 httpRequestLogin = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(uri);
 httpRequestLogin.ContentType = "application/xml";

I am not sure how to make the http request to the actual website where i need to login?

Any help is greatly appreciated

Take a look at HttpWebRequest/Response in a Nutshell - Part 1[^], a useful CodeProject article.

I found HTTP Basic Authentication[^] and OAuth 2.0 Authentication[^].
They may help...

These are great for authentication to the local site, but don't really help the OP with authentication calls to a 3rd party site which is what he is asking for. +3 for the answer, but not a 5 because it really is just a little off for the OP's exact needs. Cheers.

Hi Tadit,

Thanks for you help!

I know the Harvest link you have mentioned.

Please see the link api call ([^])

problem is Visual studio 2012 has change some namespaces. I cannot use the code from Harvest api sample.

It would be really great if someone can provide me code snippet for this API call
