    WebBrowserTask user and password in link

    hello

    I am using code below to launch webbrowsertask:

    Code:
    WebBrowserTask wbt = new WebBrowserTask();
    wbt.Uri = new Uri("https://user:pass@www.address.com/script.php");
    wbt.Show();
    Is there any problem for wp7 browser to handle user and password in link?

    when I pass only https://www.address.com/script.php browser is started but user and password is required.

    Is there any other way to pass user and password to webbrowsertask?

    Does it work if you launch the browser manually and type this kind of address? At least it may have problems with desktop IE: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834489 (I can not decode its validity, since it seems to be an old article, but with recent maintenance)

    As far as I know since IE6 that Internet Explorer does not support sending user name information on the requested address. It was possible before a security update but after 832894 was applied it was no longer possible.

    I'm unaware of it being enabled again, so I suppose its not supported.

    Re: WebBrowserTask user and password in link

    Does script.php is a custom login page ? Or the web server uses basic authentication ?

    In one of my apps I have to send the username and password like this
    Code:
    https://www.address.com/script.php?user=ssssss&paswword=3ccccccc
    New depends of requirements...
