    Since you guys seem fairly knowledgeable and since I have little to no knowledge of c++ programming:

    I feel almost stuck here trying to figure out how to read text from an external server and display it in Uplink.

    Essentially I want to send either get or post requests to my server, if GET than be able to to display the contents of the data into an Uplink EclRegisterButton or create_stextbox caption.

    I got kinda close using a library online but Uplink would always crash on the request.

    I was calling the request when I opened a page (the kind under the map) .

    How is this done, does Onlink do this?

    We use our own networking library at the present. There isn't a clean way to describe what we've done.

    But.

    Before we went and did that, I had an update notification thing for Onlink, back when releases were labeled like Beta4b. I did this by checking my server for a file using HttpGetFile in the tcp4u library. It's not a great solution if you plan to do much more than this, but it's a start if that's all you're planning.

    In all I don't suggest relying on tcp4u, I only mention it because it's already built into what you have.

    Awesome, this pointed me in the right direction and I was able to send POST requests, and i am able to download a file from FTP which is good enough for anything I can think I need to do.

    I ended up using HINTERNET InternetOpen|InternetConnect|HttpOpenRequest|HttpSendRequest
