Represents an item that may be returned by a blob listing operation. Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)
A hierarchical blob listing operation may return one of two types of objects: a CloudBlob object, or a CloudBlobDirectory object. These objects both represent blobs, but the CloudBlobDirectory object is useful for navigating a virtual hierarchy of blobs.
A flat blob listing returns only objects of type CloudBlob.
