Parameters

Get is an overloaded method used to retrieve the file or data for the resource specified in AURL. 

AURL is the fully-qualified location of the resource including the HTTP URL scheme identifier. For example: 

 

  sContent := AHttp.Get('http://www.somedomain.org/resource.html');

 

AResponseContent is the Stream that is the destination for data retrieved from the specified URL. For example: 

 

  sContent := AHttp.Get(AUrl, AResponseContent, []);

 

AIgnoreReplies is an array with numeric response codes to ignore as errors when handling the HTTP response. 

Get calls an overloaded variant of the method to perform the HTTP transfer using a TIdMemoryStream instance to capture the response content. The return value for the method is the String data read from the internal TIdMemoryStream instance.
