I need to download a file from internet. I need to make programmaticcaly the action to click on the file link and download the file without the message poupup visualization.
Can you help me.
use DatasocketRead as described in this very old KnowledgeBase entry!
without the message poupup visualization.
What are you talking about?
When you try to download something from internet, the brawser ask you where you wnat to save the file. I don't wont this, i wont to save the file in a predeterminated path
then do as suggested before.
You will receive a string from DSRead and you can save that string to any file(path) you like to…
I try to be more specifics, this is my file url : http://...../Installer_RAT_v3_1_7.zip
I try to do like in your example, but the Data soked read blocks goes in timeout.
Do you know why?
is the file accessible with this URL?
Did you attach the "[text]" suffix as explained in the LabVIEW help for DSRead?
How long does it take to download the file? Does it take longer than the default timeout of DSRead?
At the moment I have the same problem.
I've successfully used data socket to download a picture oder a pdf. But I don't understand what I have to change to download a zip file. Usually when you open a website there is a link which lead to an pop up, asking where you want to store the data.
I've attached some examples. Maybe I just need a working url for the data socket
