HTTP Request does not download the pdf file

Hi, I need help for this link Persona Natural - Contraloría General de la República. The first option it must be “Cédula de Ciudadanía” and second Option could be “36933362”. I´m trying to download the pdf file with HTTP Request, but I download just a pdf file corrupted o invalid. Please I’d like to know how i can download this kind of files. I bet the problem is with the Endpoint, but I can’t fix it.

Hello Jairo,
In this video, download files via an HTTP request.

I attached the VB.NET code:

Blockquote
Dim httpRequest As HttpWebRequest = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create(“https://url.pdf”), HttpWebRequest)
httpRequest.Method = WebRequestMethods.Http.Get
Dim httpResponse As HttpWebResponse = DirectCast(httpRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
Dim httpResponseStream As Stream = httpResponse.GetResponseStream()
Dim doc As Byte()
Dim ms As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream()
httpResponseStream.CopyTo(ms)
doc = ms.ToArray()
File.WriteAllBytes(“C:\yourfile.pdf”, doc)

Thanks,
Cristian Negulescu
