NetTalk Examples Reference


The Demo program is the grand-daddy of the NetTalk examples, and incorporates almost all NetTalk functionality (except the WebServer) in a single application. It's designed so that you can manually execute the various classes to see what effect various settings have.
This application is the usual starting point for experimenting with the classes, and with interacting with other programs.

Dial-Up Networking

DialUp Hand Code

A simple example using just the Generic NetDun class, and some hand-code to prime the various properties.

DialUp Jump Start

The result of following the DUN Jumpstart intructions.


DIP Server

DIP stands for Dynamic IP Addressing. The NetAuto protocol is designed to automatically find and connect to other (NetAuto) programs on the LAN which are running. This discovery is done via the UDP broadcast system. If your network is a WAN than an alternate mechanism is needed for the machines to find each other.
One approach is the DIP system - if all the programs are aware of a DIP server address, then they can find each other through that address.

This example is the server side of the DIP protocol. This app requires WinEvent.


NetSimple Auto Packet Boundaries

NetSimpleClient Server

NetSimple Jump Start

NetSimple Manual Packet Boundaries and Encryption

Whole Packet


RSS Client Jump Start

A simple program that uses the WebClient class to fetch an RSS file from ClarionMag. The received RSS page is displayed in a 'raw' format as it is received.

RSS Client with xFiles

Similar to the RSS jump Start, this program parses the incoming RSS information (using xFiles) and displays it in a list box.


SNMP Jump Start

A simple introduction to SNMP, this program fetches the SNMP settings from a remote machine. This program is the result of following the SNMP Jump Start instructions.

Web Client


The SOAP folder contains two example apps, one which uses xFiles and one which uses normal Clarion commands to do the XML part. The example makes use of the Unit Converter at

Web Client Jump Start

A really simple program that fetches a single page from a web site.

Web Client Polling Agent

A small window which loops through a list of web pages, fetching them one at a time. You can adjust the pages looked for, as well as the time between checks.

Web Client Weather requires xFiles

The Weather app is designed to interact with the Global Weather service at  It uses xFiles to convert from Clarion structures to XML and back again. The example was used as the basis for Clarion Live webinar #48 which discussed the Webclient class at some length.
The weather application also contains a simple Drive procedure that let's you manually fetch web pages, inspect the results, and so on.

Web Strain

Another simple application that fetches two pages from a web server as fast as it can, and repeats in a loop.

Web Server

2. Basic with Menu

A simple example with a Double-Drop style menu, and a couple of related browses and forms. The browses in this example are File-Loaded, not Page loaded.

3. Basic with Login

A simple application with a browse and form, but which also has simple Login and Logout functionality. This application uses the Chrome menu style. The default login is demo, and the default password is demo. This example has page style forms.

4. Frame with Menu

A small application that uses HTML Frames to layout the screen. The login and password is demo / demo as with the other examples.

6. Basic SSL

The Debugging Proxy Tool is a useful tool for programmers who are using NetSimple objects to communicate with other network enabled applications.
This tool helps you monitor and see the actual communication between your application and other network applications. For example if you are talking directly to a Web server, Web client, Email server and so on, you can use the Proxy Example to view the actual commands sent and received from your application.

Specific documentation for this example can be found here.
