HTML Question

(Delphi) Is it possible to change a label to whats in a .html file?

Is it possible to change a Label caption to what is in a

.html
file? Lets say the
.html
file contains
1.0
in it. Can I make the Label retrieve that and change its
Caption
to that value?

Eg.
lbl1.caption := http://www.example.com/example.html;


Is it possible to do this?

Answer

TLabel cannot load content for you, whether that is from a file or a remote URL. You have to write your own code to retrieve the content yourself, and then you can assign it to the TLabel. For example:

// using the Indy TIdHTTP component...
lbl1.Caption := IdHTTP1.Get('http://www.example.com/example.html');
