i am designing a client/server application in visual basic to use on a file downloading site. the client end will be an activex control that will be used in an internet explorer window... (alot like the downloading utility used at fileplanet). i was wondering if there is a way to retrieve GET and POST variables from the IE page the control will be opened in... or if they cant, is there another way i can get a variable (like a filename) from the IE page to be used in the control.
Thanks! - P.D.
