Question / Problem:
When calling Microsoft's WinHTTPRequest object from a SBL Document Validation Script for a Web Service/SOAP query, and the call fails, and Validation crashes.
Is there a way to work around this?
Answer / Solution:
The root cause of this failure is unknown, but has been observed, and it likely due to an issue within the WinHTTPRequest component.
If utilizing a VB.NET Validation Script is not a valid option, it may be possible to use the very similar functionality of the Microsoft.XMLHTTP component.
Dim xml As Object 'Create an xmlhttp object: Set xml = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP") 'Opens the connection to the remote server. xml.Open "GET", "http://www.kofax.com/", False 'Actually Sends the request and returns the data: xml.Send 'Show the response as a message box. MsgBox xml.responseText
