WebClient.DownloadStringCompleted Event

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

Occurs when an asynchronous resource-download operation completes.

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

'Declaration
Public Event DownloadStringCompleted As DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler
'Usage
Dim instance As WebClient
Dim handler As DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler

AddHandler instance.DownloadStringCompleted, handler

/** @event */
public void add_DownloadStringCompleted (DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_DownloadStringCompleted (DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler value)

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

This event is raised each time an asynchronous operation to download a resource as a string completes. These operations are started by calling the DownloadStringAsync methods.

The DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler is the delegate for this event. The DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs class provides the event handler with event data.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

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

'  Sample call : DownloadStringInBackground2 ("http:' www.contoso.com/GameScores.html")
Public Shared Sub DownloadStringInBackground2(ByVal address As String)

    Dim client As WebClient = New WebClient()

    '  Specify that the DownloadStringCallback2 method gets called
    '  when the download completes.
    AddHandler client.DownloadStringCompleted, AddressOf DownloadStringCallback2
                Dim uri as Uri = New Uri(address)
    client.DownloadStringAsync(uri)
End Sub
