Retrieve Data Using the Microsoft Internet Transfer Control in ASP

Many Web sites publish useful data that you may want to retrieve and post on your own Web pages. The Microsoft Internet Transfer Control (Inet) provides a way for your Active Server Page (ASP) to retrieve other Web pages and gather data. The Inet control has the OpenURL and Execute methods. An ASP has no support for events, so only the OpenURL method is available. The key is to create an instance of the Inet control using the ProgID "InetCtls.Inet". Try both http and ftp with this code:
 
<HTML>
<BODY>
<FORM METHOD=POST>
<P><INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME=TXTURL>
<HR>
<P><TEXTAREA WRAP=SOFT ROWS=20 COLS=80 ID=TEXTAREA1 NAME=TEXTAREA1>
<%
Dim Inet
Dim s

If Len(Request.Form("txtUrl")) > 0 Then
	Set Inet = Server.CreateObject("InetCtls.Inet")
	Inet.RequestTimeOut=20
	Inet.Url = Request.Form("txtUrl")
	s = Inet.OpenURL
	response.write(s)
End If
%>
</TEXTAREA>
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>
