Using JavaScript in HomeSite 4.0, Part III

The HTTPProvider Object's Methods, Part I

The HTTPProvider object supports a handful of methods:

Get()None

Performs the HTTP GET method request. You have to set all appropriate HTTPProvider object's properties to set the HTTP request parameters such as username, password, proxy server and settings, etc. The following script issues the Get() method and then prints the HTTPProvider object's properties:

var app = Application;
function Main() {
  app.HTTPProvider.URL = "http://www.webreference.com/js";
  app.HTTPProvider.Get();
  app.MessageBox( 
    "Agent='" + app.HTTPProvider.Agent + "'\n" +
    "AuthorizationRequest='" + app.HTTPProvider.AuthorizationRequest + "'\n"+
    "ContentLength='" + app.HTTPProvider.ContentLength + "'\n" +
    "ContentType='" + app.HTTPProvider.ContentType + "'\n" +
    "ContentTypePost='" + app.HTTPProvider.ContentTypePost + "'\n" +
    "Cookie='" + app.HTTPProvider.Cookie + "'\n" +
    "DocName='"	+ app.HTTPProvider.DocName + "'\n" +
    "Location='" + app.HTTPProvider.Location + "'\n" +
    "ModifiedSince='"	+ app.HTTPProvider.ModifiedSince + "'\n" +
    "MultiThreaded='"	+ app.HTTPProvider.MultiThreaded + "'\n" +
    "NoCache='" + app.HTTPProvider.NoCache + "'\n" +
    "Password='" + app.HTTPProvider.Password + "'\n" +
    "Proxy='"	+ app.HTTPProvider.Proxy + "'\n" +
    "ProxyPassword='" + app.HTTPProvider.ProxyPassword + "'\n" +
    "ProxyPort='" + app.HTTPProvider.Proxyport + "'\n" +
    "ProxyUsername='" + app.HTTPProvider.ProxyUsername + "'\n" +
    "RcvdCount='"	+ app.HTTPProvider.RcvdCount + "'\n" +
