Converting from VB6 to VB 2008 - HTTP Request

Converting from VB6 to VB 2008 - HTTP Request

Converting from VB6 to VB 2008 - HTTP Request

(OP)
Hi Everyone, not sure if this is the right thread/forum to put this... but I'm having issues trying to convert the following code from VB6 to VB2008. All it dowes is posts to a URL the locationID and the site returns an XML of the data stored there. But I haven;t a clue how to do it. All sites I can see give .NET equivalents. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give.

CurrentTimeFormatted = Format(Date, "yyyy-mmm-dd-hh-nn")
CurrentTimeFormatted = URLencshort(CurrentTimeFormatted)
Dim html As IXMLHTTPRequest

Set html = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")


URLString = GetSetting("HTTPServerPath") & "GetAsbestosbyLocation.asp?LocationID=" & TheLocationID & "&t=" & CurrentTimeFormatted
With html

.Open "GET", URLString, False
.send
TheXMLContent = .responseText
End With

Found Solution... easy once I put my brain into gear:

CurrentTimeFormatted = DateTime.Now.ToString("yyyy-mmm-dd-hh-mm-ss")
CurrentTimeFormatted = URLencshort(CurrentTimeFormatted)
Dim html As MSXML2.IXMLHTTPRequest
html = CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
URLString = GetSetting("HTTPServerPath") & "GetAsbestosbyLocation.asp?LocationID=" & TheLocationID & "&t=" & CurrentTimeFormatted
With html

.open("GET", URLString, False)
.send()
theXMLContent = .responseText
End With
