I think you are missing something - you don't post text to text boxes nor
to change radio buttons - you submit data to a web server gathered using an
HTML form.

For more information, please read one of the many form tutorials available
on the web, for example:

okay i think i get it but i need somthing that allows me to change 
radio buttons and input, like i said before somthing that would 
bascily fill out the first page of hotline.com and then open the 
other page.  I don't need it to display just the open document with 
the html because the program would handle decoding the html and 
taking out what i want,  so if this isn't what i want then is there 
any thing in the class that does that
