Researching how to display and interact with a website.

Posted 09 April 2011 - 05:38 PM

I'm researching on how to display and interact with a website, at the moment its just research on how to go about it. Once i start i may need some more assistance. But for now just research :)

At the moment Ive came up with using WebClient and HttpWebRequest/HttpWebResponse to interact with website data. And i know VB.net has an inbuilt site viewer (just a wrapper for IE).

The website im using is an Intranet page for doing VOIP calls. It uses a large collection of JS(jQuerry) mostly. I can probably get the dev to make a .php file to
<?php
 print_r($_GET);  //Prints all GET variables in a quite readable manner.
 print_r($_POST); //Prints all POST variables in a quite readable manner.
?> 

to find out what GET's and POST's there are, but I'm not sure if JS stuff gets put in as a GET or a POST as its in the DOM.

So all in all,I'm wanting to make a "Desktop" variant of there client. So basicly just a viewer of the dial pad. And detection of new calls in the queue, things like that. So i want to read data from the website, display the dialpad(just showing a segment of the website) and send the request to accept a call(and maybe a few other small pieces of data).

So my question is, what should i look up and find out more to start on this project? And any advice given will be much appreciated.

I'd try the C# forum since you aren't getting an answer here. Anything they might tell you should be easily implemented in VB

I personally don't know much about WebRequests - webbrowsers are my area of expertise, but if you take a look at http://www.hackforums.net/ there are loads of very advanced .NET programmers in the .NET section who, in my experience, are very good at what you seem to be describing, and they're generally willing to help.
