Hi everybody,

I am working on a small application that it is suppose to send a zip code and a text to a website, retrieve the resultsand display it in the android application.

I have read about web services and how to retrieve information. I played around with the RSS mobile application and got it working but what I can't figure out if how to send the zip code to a webpage and activate the search button on the page.

Any advice would be appreciated,

Richard.

Hi James,

I do not have a sample of the code. However, I have designed the interface that I will be using. Here is the Android interface I will be using and part of the webpage I need to access from the application. The webpage has a field to enter a county, city, or zip code but from the app I will be supplying only the zip code. Also, on the webpage you can see the different options the user can click on after the zip code so a search can be completed.

Once the search is completed, I need to retrieve this information from the webpage and display it on the cell phone on a new activity. I have been working on learning android on my own and I have practice with the RSS feeds but nothing on how I can send the zip code and select an option from the app and how to retrieve the information.

Any help or comments are appreciated,

Richard.
