Currency Converter

  • 9 years ago
    Hi all, Wondering if anyone can help. I'm going to develop a currency converter. I want my application to get realtime currency rates but I don't how to achieve this. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be great. I have only been at vb.net about a month now so im kinda a newbie but I have a good basic grasp anyway. Thanks

    A possible way to approach this is to write an application that calls and retrieves currency rates via a XML web service. A quick search reveals the following:

    1. Here's an example of a web service that returns currency rates

    2. Here's some example code of consuming the service above
