i'm using the HTTP activeX componenent to do a PostUrlEncoded with UseBgThread=1 i want to use the data that i'm getting while waiting for the next data ( it's tweeter stream, so virtually infinite ) i tried ( in VB6 )

Do While (http.BgTaskRunning = 1)
    '  Show the events in the event log that have accumulated so far...
    Dim n As Long
    n = http.EventLogCount
    If (n > 0) Then
        Dim j As Long
        For j = 0 To n - 1
            Debug.Print http.EventLogName(j) & ": " & http.EventLogValue(j) & vbCrLf
       Dim response As New ChilkatHttpResponse
        Set response = http.BgResponseObject()
        Debug.Print "BgResultString >> " & response.bodyStr
    End If

( i also triend several variation on this like using a GET and getting the response as a String ) it does not work, and i have to restart visual studio if i use a breakpoint

Unfortunately, the Chilkat HTTP API was not designed with this in mind. We've investigated adding this capability, but it's not a quick-and-easy feature to add. Something like this may be added in a future release, but not in the short term.

even that, when i use

http.SessionLogFilename = "httpSessionLog.txt"

the content "retreived so far" is indeed recorded in this file ?

Yes. Also, I checked and the logging occurs such that each update is written by opening, writing, and closing the file. The reason it's difficult to provide the information via the API (without more extensive work), is that internally the response is received in a byte-oriented streaming fashion such that the chunk boundaries are not known where it's needed. (In other words, it's difficult to get just the data.)
