- A string or byte array that will contain the output generated

- An optional integer variable which specifies the maximum number

||The default submission mode. The contents of the buffer are
encoded and sent as standard form data. The data returned by
the server is copied to the result buffer exactly as it is
returned from the server.
||If the data being returned from the server is textual, it
is automatically converted so that the end of line character
sequence is compatible with the Windows platform. Individual

A value of zero is returned if the operation was successful,
otherwise a non-zero error code is returned which indicates the cause
of the failure.
The SubmitForm method submits the current form data to a
script on the server and returns the result in a string or
byte array provided by the caller. This method will cause the current
thread to block until the operation completes, a timeout occurs or
the post is canceled. During the operation, the OnProgress
event will fire periodically, enabling the application to update any
user interface objects such as a progress bar.
