HTTP request in C# windows application?

How do I make a HTTP request from a C# windows application?

In Delphi, I just drop an Indy HTTP object on a form, call the Get method, and it returns the HTML (or other web page data) as a string.

How do I do this in C#?

Is there a simple source code example?

Thank you!

Look into the HttpWebRequest, and by implication the WebRequest.Create method. This should do something similar. Plenty of info in the documentation!
