Return Content When You Pass a URL to the Server

Suppose you need to send a URL to a server, which then returns some content (the content can be HTML, XML, etc.). Using the .NET Framework's WebClient method, you can return the content as a string.

Public Function get_XML(ByVal query As String) As String
        Try
            Dim myWebClient As New WebClient
            Dim mydatabuffer As Byte() = myWebClient.DownloadData(query)
            Dim xml As String
            xml = Encoding.Default.GetString(mydatabuffer)
            Return xml
        Catch ex As Exception
            Console.WriteLine(ex.ToString)
        End Try
    End Function.
