Alternative to inetget()

1 post in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

Hello friends. I am having some problems using inet functions to transmit data for my instant messenger.

 

I was wondering if there is a way to download a web page in the background without using inetget()?

 

I am working with winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1 for my regular data requests but it locks up the process while transmitting data, so that's not good for the main loop(where I'm fetching data that includes incoming messages). Is there any way to fetch a webpage async?(like ajax in JS, or maybe using JS inside of autoit?)

 

I thought I saw a library on here somewhere that allows javascript to be executed inside an autoit script, but I can't remember what it was called.

 

Please give me some suggestions/ideas about how to fetch data from a web page without locking up the process/thread.

 

Thanks much

-Alec
