Using mobile internet connection on WinMo6 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    I'm making a Windows Mobile 6 application in C# to help all those affected by Alzheimer's as well as similar conditions

    One bit of that requires that my C# app gets a mobile number from a .txt file on my website, then sends an SMS Text message to it.

    I have sorted out sending texts, but when it looks for the .txt file, it crashes because it can't find the internet, even though there is a constant data connection on my Windows Mobile phone (HTC HD2)

    The code I have so far is...

            private void btn_send_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                btn_send.Enabled = false;

                int i = 0;
                string fileline;
                HttpWebRequest reqFP = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create("http://jamesgeddes.com/tracknan/phone.txt");
                HttpWebResponse rspFP = (HttpWebResponse)reqFP.GetResponse();
                Stream st = rspFP.GetResponseStream();
                using (StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(st))
                    fileline = sr.ReadLine();
                SmsMessage x = new SmsMessage("fileline", "DONE");
                for (i = 0; i <= 10; i++)
                    label2.Text = Convert.ToString(i);
                    x = new SmsMessage("fileline", Convert.ToString(i));

                    btn_send.Enabled = true;

    How do I get it to recognise the internet connection? Any help would be grately appreciated, as it will benefit those affected by Alzheimer's as well as similar conditions

    Thanks everyone!

  • Hi,

    Does the code you posted cause any exceptions to be raised?

    As a side note, the code you are using to send the SMS is slightly incorrect, I presume you want to send an SMS message to the number held in the TXT file. The constructor you are using takes the first parameter as the phone number, however you are passing in "fileline" rather than fileline (remove quotes).
