DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs Class

Provides data for the DownloadStringCompleted event.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public class DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs : AsyncCompletedEventArgs

Instances of this class are passed to the DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler.

The following code example demonstrates downloading a string asynchronously.

// Sample call : DownloadStringInBackground2 ("http://www.contoso.com/GameScores.html");
public static void DownloadStringInBackground2 (string address)
{
    WebClient client = new WebClient ();
    Uri uri = new Uri(address);

    // Specify that the DownloadStringCallback2 method gets called 
    // when the download completes.
    client.DownloadStringCompleted += new DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler (DownloadStringCallback2);
    client.DownloadStringAsync (uri);
}
// Sample call : DownloadStringInBackground2 ("http://www.contoso.com/GameScores.html");
void DownloadStringInBackground2 (String* address)
{
    WebClient* client = new WebClient ();

    // Specify that the DownloadStringCallback2 method gets called
    // when the download completes.
    client->DownloadStringCompleted += new DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler (DownloadStringCallback2);
    client->DownloadStringAsync (address);
}

The following method is called when the download completes.

private static void DownloadStringCallback2 (Object sender, DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs e)
{
    // If the request was not canceled and did not throw 
    // an exception, display the resource. 
    if (!e.Cancelled && e.Error == null)
    {
        string textString = (string)e.Result;

        Console.WriteLine (textString);
    }
}
void DownloadStringCallback2 (Object* /*sender*/, DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs* e)
{
    // If the request was not canceled and did not throw
    // an exception, display the resource.
    if (!e->Cancelled && e->Error == 0)
    {
        String* textString = dynamic_cast<String*>(e->Result);

        Console::WriteLine (textString);
    }
}
