How to download web page with the help c# console application.


using System.Net;
//...
using (WebClient client = new WebClient ()) // WebClient class inherits IDisposable
{

    client.DownloadFile("http://yoursite.com/page.html", @"C:\localfile.html");

    // Or you can get the file content without saving it:

    string htmlCode = client.DownloadString("http://yoursite.com/page.html");

There are two ways directly save it to localfile.html or you can get the code and get it into the string variable.
