xml in vb.net
in vb 6 i used the msxml2.dll to post xml documents to a server and received the response back.
how do i go about doing that in vb.net? there is a wealth of new things in vb.net and im sure that it is quite easy but i dont really know where to look.
here is how my code looks in vb 6:
Private xmlHttp As New MSXML2.XMLHTTP40
Private xmlDocReq As New MSXML2.DOMDocument40
Private xmlRoot As MSXML2.IXMLDOMElement
Dim xmlItem As MSXML2.IXMLDOMElement
Dim xmlItemChild As MSXML2.IXMLDOMElement
xmlDocReq.async = False
xmlDocReq.loadXML("my xml document")
xmlHttp.open("POST", "http://ip address", False)
this does work in vb.net if i reference the msxml2.dll but i am sure there must be a way from within vb.net. im also trying to put this in a web service but by using the code above, it just hangs on the xmlHttp.send part and does not return my xml response.
any help would be very appreciated.
