  • Would it be possible to download a list from the internet and have it read into a listbox? C#.NET 4.0
  • Yes, it is possible. You need to download the file via a HTTP connection, though, to parse it.
  • Use webclient to fetch it, Then it's up to you how you parse it. I used modified INI files for my SVN Updater, Because parsing them is a piece of cake, they are human readable and it doesn't have so much redundant data that XML has. Question is vague, however.
  • System.Net.WebClient.DownloadFile/DownloadData(URI), then it's up to you to parse it.
