Jun 27 2015 2:16 PM
Hi,
 
I build winform which try to read data/string from webpage.
 
In the following code I get no string in variable reply. however if I am using the comment url ("http://www.finviz.com/") I get string in the reply.
 
Can you help to see why I am not getting data in this code?
 
Thanks

  url = "http://www.finviz.com/screener.ashx?v=110&s=ta_topgainers&o=-price"; // This is not working
 //url = "http://www.finviz.com/"; // This is working
