Communication between ASP.NET app and Windows Client app

Hi All

I have a requirement where the user clicks a button on the windows app. A
browser pops up. User enters some data in the browser. And I want the data
sent back to the windows app. How do i do this.

I see two issues here.

How would the client know when I am done with my Changes on the browser. We
thought we would some polling which is a bad idea. Any suggestions???

How do I send the data to the client. WCF is not an option for us. Sorry

Any ideas?

Regards

you have really two optios.

1) polling a web service like you planned.
2) hosting the browser with your windows app. you can then catch
navigation events and read the dom.

You can pop up a dialog box hosting the Web Browser Control. You can control
it programmatically. That should help your windows application know whether
a particular button has been clicked in the browser, and even pick up the
data.
