How to download files or information from within your app by skiflyer
Posted: 4 Feb 03

In .NET it's incredibly easy to download files from within your application.

The function takes a file name, a url, and a destination directory, and downloads the file from the URL to the destination.

Public Sub GetPackage(ByVal sFile As String, ByVal destination As String, ByVal sRemoteUrl As String)
  Dim wc As New Net.WebClient()
    wc.DownloadFile(sRemoteUrl + sFile, destination + "\\" + sFile)
    MsgBox("Unable to download file " + sRemoteUrl + sFile)
  End Try
End Sub

Good luck and enjoy.
