Visual Basic 6.0 Example

Dim rest As New ChilkatRest
Dim success As Long

'  URL:
Dim bTls As Long
bTls = 1
Dim port As Long
port = 443
Dim bAutoReconnect As Long
bAutoReconnect = 1
success = rest.Connect("",port,bTls,bAutoReconnect)
If (success <> 1) Then
    Debug.Print "ConnectFailReason: " & rest.ConnectFailReason
    Debug.Print rest.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

success = rest.SetAuthBasic("STRIPE_SECRET_KEY","")

success = rest.AddQueryParam("pii[personal_id_number]","000000000")

Dim strResponseBody As String
strResponseBody = rest.FullRequestFormUrlEncoded("POST","/v1/tokens")
If (rest.LastMethodSuccess <> 1) Then
    Debug.Print rest.LastErrorText
