    internet form box submission

    How does one get a VB app to fill out an internet form? That is, I want, as an example, to have my program log onto eBay and tell eBay my userID and password so that I can establish a session that will let me get at information from eBay that you can only get if you are logged on?

    I can suck down eBay pages with no problem, but unless my session is logged on, some information is not present in the HTML pages that get built by the server.

    I tried planet source code and somewhat to my surprize couldn't find anything.

    I'm not sure if this is possible (from what i make of ur question).

    Don't eBay use SSL?

    i'm not sure if this would make a difference!

    for hacking reasons, as mentioned above SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is protecting there pages with encryption, so i very much doubt you can do what you want.

    Of course i may be wrong, but with security issues, its likely im not

    Maybe you can use Robo Form in someway.

    no, the eBay login page is not an SSL page and besides, I'm looking for a generic solution for filling out page queries programatically --- I just used eBay as an example.

    So ... any suggestions?

    Thanks,
