From Valve Developer Community
Jump to: navigation, search

Here's an example of using CreateHTTPRequest to fetch a URL. CreateHTTPRequest returns a CScriptHTTPRequest object the most important function of which is Send( completionCallback ). This example creates the request and immediately sends it with a completion routine that simply prints the resulting data.

CreateHTTPRequest( "GET", "http://www.google.com" ):Send( function( result )
	print( "GET response:\n" )
	for k,v in pairs( result ) do
		print( string.format( "%s : %s\n", k, v ) )
	end
	print( "Done." )
end )
