Francoise, I am using Delphi 5 and I don't beleive the latest Beta supports it. I seem to remember seeing something that said this was the case but please correct me if I am wrong.
Anyway, the WebServ App is there and so is the template code.....So, I create a template of HTML with special "tags" for the data and HttpServer then collects the data when a browser requests that page. That couldn't be a more perfect solution. Thanks a lot Francoise. Now, all I need to do is understand HTML. Anyone know any good books?

My web programming knowledge is scant to say the least. I know I can use the HttpServ component to create the server but that then uses static directories and files to serve the web pages. Am I correct in assuming I must constantly update these files with the real time data or is there another way? You are wrong. ICS HTTP server is really designed to provided dynamic content. It support HTML templates which can be filled at runtime with dynamic content. WebServ demo show how to do it. Use latest ICS release or even V6-beta because there where a lot of new features last year. In the demo (WebServ1.pas) have a look at CreateVirtualDocument_Template() and CreateVirtualDocument_ViewFormData() which are two very simple use of the template feature.
