)

Parameters

A reference to a block blob.

The blobAddressUri parameter is the URI of the block blob relative to the container. For example, consider the following code sample:

{
    // Create a reference to the storage account.
    StorageCredentialsAccountAndKey storageCredentials = new StorageCredentialsAccountAndKey(storageAccountName, key);
    CloudStorageAccount storageAccount = new CloudStorageAccount(storageCredentials, false);

    // Create a reference to a blob container and a block blob within the container.
    CloudBlobClient blobClient = storageAccount.CreateCloudBlobClient();
    CloudBlobContainer container = blobClient.GetContainerReference("mycontainer");
    CloudBlockBlob myBlob = container.GetBlockBlobReference("myblob");

    return myBlob;
}
