WebClient.DownloadProgressChanged Event

Note: This event is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Occurs when an asynchronous download operation successfully transfers some or all of the data.

Namespace: System.Net
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

'Declaration
Public Event DownloadProgressChanged As DownloadProgressChangedEventHandler
'Usage
Dim instance As WebClient
Dim handler As DownloadProgressChangedEventHandler

AddHandler instance.DownloadProgressChanged, handler

/** @event */
public void add_DownloadProgressChanged (DownloadProgressChangedEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_DownloadProgressChanged (DownloadProgressChangedEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

This event is raised each time an asynchronous download makes progress. This event is raised when downloads are started using any of the following methods.

Method

Description

DownloadDataAsync

Downloads data from a resource and returns a Byte array, without blocking the calling thread.

DownloadFileAsync

Downloads data from a resource to a local file, without blocking the calling thread.

OpenReadAsync

Returns the data from a resource, without blocking the calling thread.

The DownloadProgressChangedEventHandler is the delegate for this event. The DownloadProgressChangedEventArgs class provides the event handler with event data.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

NoteNote

A passive FTP file transfer will always show a progress percentage of zero, since the server did not send the file size. To show progress, you can change the FTP connection to active by overriding the GetWebRequest virtual method:

internal class MyWebClient:WebClient{
        protected override WebRequest GetWebRequest(Uri address) {
            FtpWebRequest req = (FtpWebRequest)base.GetWebRequest(address);
            req.UsePassive = false;
            return req;
        }
    }

The following code example demonstrates setting an event handler for this event.

'  Sample call : DownLoadFileInBackground2 ("http:' www.contoso.com/logs/January.txt")
Public Shared Sub DownLoadFileInBackground2(ByVal address As String)

    Dim client As WebClient = New WebClient()

    '  Specify that the DownloadFileCallback method gets called
    '  when the download completes.
    AddHandler client.DownloadFileCompleted, AddressOf DownloadFileCallback2
    '  Specify a progress notification handler.
    AddHandler client.DownloadProgressChanged, AddressOf DownloadProgressCallback
                Dim uri as Uri = New Uri(address)
    client.DownloadFileAsync(uri, "serverdata.txt")
End Sub


The following code example shows an implementation of a handler for this event.

Shared Sub UploadProgressCallback(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As UploadProgressChangedEventArgs)

    '  Displays the operation identifier, and the transfer progress.
    Console.WriteLine("{0}    uploaded {1} of {2} bytes. {3} % complete...", _
     CStr(e.UserState), e.BytesSent, e.TotalBytesToSend, e.ProgressPercentage)
End Sub
Shared Sub DownloadProgressCallback(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DownloadProgressChangedEventArgs)

    '  Displays the operation identifier, and the transfer progress.
    Console.WriteLine("0}    downloaded 1} of 2} bytes. 3} % complete...", _
     CStr(e.UserState), e.BytesReceived, e.TotalBytesToReceive, e.ProgressPercentage)
End Sub
