While there are many ways to do an HTTP Download with 4D, like Tech Note 02-5 from Feb 2002 (HTTP Client with 4D) or 05-18 (cURL – HTTP Client), we still get tech support requests for an easier way to accomplish this task.

This tech note features a single 4D method, doing all the work needed to download an HTML page, post data, receive a picture or download an entire file. Installation is easy, you don’t need to quit 4D nor do you need to start 4D Insider. All that is needed is to copy & paste one 4D method. This makes it very simple to add the functionality to your project. No hassle of installing several methods, a component or an external application.
