VB code Needed [May. 12th, 2002|09:48 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


[mood |creativecreative]

I am working on develping the code for a Mulit use off-line poster for Live Journal. My intention is to have verring programs writen for verryng platforms that create a text file to send with min. changes to live journal server. The first few client programs that intreset me would be on Windows (9x/2k/xp) most likely coded in VB, Pocket PC 2000/2002 in eVB and Dos Writen in C++. These programs would create a text file that could later be sent to sever. The code I need is not for these programs. I need help with codeing the App that send the info to the server. More exactly I need the code for creating the post, my VB class did not cover more than the basic controls and exp not internet protocalls.

Could somone Please show me code for posting in a way to the boards. I need VB code so I can work with it and design a text file spec for further programs to be writen (ie a Mac/Palm Combo). I plan on starting a comunity for this subject in the near future and posting info to this comunity.

Thanks in advance

For a text format, XML would probably be easiest.

As for code, it's simple HTTP. I'm sure you could salvage code from the existing Win32 GLP'd clients, if the license permits.

Half of the fun of programming is to come up with a solution on your own, and only after you've tried and failed, asking for help. At least, that's what I like about programming. If someone writes the code for you, what's the fun?

Anyway, I don't know Visual Basic, so I can't help you anyway. Good luck though!

What you need to do, is scour the multitude of programming sites out there which are chock-full of code to do this for you. Then rip it out, figure it out, and adapt it to your specific need.

You'll find that people are not going to give you code straight out. They may help you fix your code, but not write it for you.
