    PHP and Visual Basic

    Hello,

    Can Visual Basic interact with PHP, or would I need to go with ASP or another language?

    I'm making a content management system and I want to be able to edit the pages with a program in Visual Basic. So can I use php and vb?

    Thanks.

    i am going to assume that you mean "can you have php scripts used along with a vb application" - well i suppose that if you have the scripts set up on the web, and then you had the VB app call out to them like a web browser would, they'd run just the same. Hell you could pass variables that way too even.


    Is that it?

    Yeah that's what I mean.

    I haven't looked much into VB yet as I want to check to see if I can call upon php scripts with it.

    if it doesn't have a function built in to fetch web page content (which i HIGHLY doubt it does) I KNOW it will have what's called a "SOCKET".



    You can use a socket to establish a connection to a web server and ask it for the web page (ie updatedb.php3) and it will all work out fine.


    If you don't know how to program a socket, then just find an example of one somewhere. I am sure you could find the source to a VB web browser somewhere.

    Yeah that shouldn't be too difficult since the wizards create a web browser so i can just peek at the code to how they did that.
