Default Google Currency Converter webrequest


Am not overly experience with web-requests and am wanting to find out the best way to post data to the following Google URL and retrieve the data returned back. Please could someone help me out with this. Have tried a few things but have returned nothing.

http://www.google.com/ig/calculator?hl=en&q=100EUR%3D%3FAUD

Ideally being able to send the amount and to and from currency codes and returning just the new value would be good.

Many thanks in advance!

I think you want converter, not calculator, right?

http://www.google.com/finance/conver...rom=EUR&to=AUD

Use System.Net.WebRequest.

Btw, that's a Get, not a Post.

That would do perfectly fine. :-)

Are you able to elaborate on the actual code I need to use to get the response. I have no experience using webrequest and have tried to cobble a few things together but return nothing.

Thanks for the prompt reply by the way
