WebClient.UploadStringAsync Method (Uri, String)
Uploads the specified string to the specified resource. This method does not block the calling thread.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading = true)] public void UploadStringAsync( Uri address, string data )
This method sends a string to a resource. The string is sent asynchronously using thread resources that are automatically allocated from the thread pool. Before uploading the string, this method converts it to a Byte array using the encoding specified in the Encoding property. To receive notification when the string upload completes, you can add an event handler to the UploadStringCompleted event.
This method does not block the calling thread while the string is being sent. To send a string and block while waiting for the server's response, use one of the UploadString methods.
Asynchronous operations that have not completed can be canceled using the CancelAsync method.
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.
This method uses the STOR command to upload an FTP resource. For an HTTP resource, the POST method is used.
