Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public function UploadFile(
	address : Uri, 
	method : String, 
	fileName : String
) : byte[]

Parameters

address
Type: System.Uri

The URI of the resource to receive the file.

method
Type: System.String

The HTTP method used to send the file to the resource. If null, the default is POST for http and STOR for ftp.

fileName
Type: System.String

The file to send to the resource.

Return Value

Type: System.Byte[]
A Byte array containing the body of the response from the resource.
ExceptionCondition
WebException

The URI formed by combining BaseAddress, and address is invalid.

-or-

fileName is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), is Empty, contains invalid characters, or does not exist.

-or-

An error occurred while uploading the file.

-or-

There was no response from the server hosting the resource.

-or-

The Content-type header begins with multipart.

When address specifies an HTTP resource, the UploadFile method sends a local file to a resource using the HTTP method specified in the method parameter and returns any response from the server. This method blocks while uploading the file. To continue executing while waiting for the server's response, use one of the UploadFileAsync methods.

If the method parameter specifies a verb that is not understood by the server or the address resource, the underlying protocol classes determine what occurs. Typically, a WebException is thrown with the Status property set to indicate the error.

If the BaseAddress property is not an empty string ("") and address does not contain an absolute URI, address must be a relative URI that is combined with BaseAddress to form the absolute URI of the requested data. If the QueryString property is not an empty string, it is appended to address.
