Hi. New to asp so please be gentle.
I am trying to post a query to a webform from an android app. What I want to do is send a serial number and search a database but do not want to open the form within the app.
I am using app inventor and the web componant (if anyone is familiar with it).

You can POST with the WebRequest object from the codebehind:

You can try to implement the POST & retrieval of the data from the asp.net webform to Android application via OData WCF Services.
If you have access to the database from which you want to retrieve the data , that's great. You can easily achieve it via ADO.NET entity framework & create a WCF service then retrieve the service via GET/POST to your android native application.
