C# Display a value on a website into a richtextbox


I’m currently trying to learn C#, and to be honest I’m really liking it. Unfortunatelly I ran into a problem.

I’m working on a program called CryptoChecker. It is composed of two buttons, and a richtextbox. CryptoChecker checks the current bitcoin price and refreshes every 5 seconds, well, at least that’s what I want to do.

This is the website from where I’m getting the price:


I’m making my program on visual studio 2017, and I need help!

here’s my code: HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("https://api.cryptonator.com/api/ticker/btc-usd"); HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse(); StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream()); richTextBox1.Text = sr.ReadToEnd(); sr.Close();

so what I currently have is: all the values displayed on the richtextbox, but I don’t want that! I want only the price value on the richtextbox. How am I supposed to do it??


Basically you are asking for the data and then just dumping it into the RichTextBox.
To only display the price, you need to filter out the items you don’t want.
