Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Communicating with the web site, part of Visual Studio 2010 Essential Training.
I'd like to show you how to connect to web servers and retrieve information.…The site I'm going to use for the project is bing.com.…I'll start by looking at how Bing queries are formatted.…As you can see, I have the Bing web site open and in the URL, I'm going to…change the query string to show you how our queries really run against the Bing servers.…I'm going to type the word "search" and then a question mark, and then the letter…q= and then my search term, wpf, and press Enter.…So let's examine this search query.…
The search means you want to do a search, the q stands for query, and then the…equal sign says to assign the WPF string to the query string.…If I change this to another word, say "lynda", then you see I now have a…different search query.…Now, one of many interesting things that Bing does that a lot of the other…search engines don't do is that if you put an ampersand here, and then say…format=rss, it will return your search results as an RSS feed, and then you can…point your RSS reader at this feed and get a constant update for this topic.…

Q: Which edition of Visual Studio 2010 do I need to follow along in this course?
A: The course is taught with Visual Studio 2010 Professional, but can also be used with the Premium or Ultimate editions. The Express editions of Visual Studio, including Visual Basic 2010 Express, Visual C# 2010 Express, and Visual C++ Express, are not covered in this course.
Q: I'm attempting to download the exercise files for this course, and my virus protection is blocking me from unzipping the downloaded file. Are the files corrupted?
A: The alert is a false-positive message. Your antivirus software is detecting the active code included in the exercise files, which in some ways resembles viral code. There is nothing to be alarmed about and you can ignore the warning. This is common among coding courses and environments.
