Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example converts a string entered from the console into a byte array and posts the array to the specified server using UploadData. Any response from the server is displayed to the console.

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] Note   This example shows how to use one of the overloaded versions of UploadData. For other examples that might be available, see the individual overload topics.
[Visual Basic] 
Dim uriString As String
Console.Write(ControlChars.Cr + "Please enter the URI to post data to{for example, http://www.contoso.com} : ")
uriString = Console.ReadLine()
' Create a new WebClient instance.
Dim myWebClient As New WebClient()
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Please enter the data to be posted to the URI {0}:", uriString)
Dim postData As String = Console.ReadLine()
myWebClient.Headers.Add("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded")
' Apply ASCII Encoding to obtain the string as a byte array.
Dim byteArray As Byte() = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(postData)
Console.WriteLine("Uploading to {0} ...", uriString)
' Upload the input string using the HTTP 1.0 POST method.
Dim responseArray As Byte() = myWebClient.UploadData(uriString, "POST", byteArray)
' Decode and display the response.
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Response received was :{0}", Encoding.ASCII.GetString(responseArray))

[C#] 
string uriString;
Console.Write("\nPlease enter the URI to post data to {for example, http://www.contoso.com} : ");
uriString = Console.ReadLine();
// Create a new WebClient instance.
WebClient myWebClient = new WebClient();
Console.WriteLine("\nPlease enter the data to be posted to the URI {0}:",uriString);
string postData = Console.ReadLine();
myWebClient.Headers.Add("Content-Type","application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
// Apply ASCII Encoding to obtain the string as a byte array.
byte[] byteArray = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(postData);
Console.WriteLine("Uploading to {0} ...",  uriString);                        
// Upload the input string using the HTTP 1.0 POST method.
byte[] responseArray = myWebClient.UploadData(uriString,"POST",byteArray);
// Decode and display the response.
Console.WriteLine("\nResponse received was {0}",
    Encoding.ASCII.GetString(responseArray));

[C++] 
String* uriString;
Console::Write(S"\nPlease enter the URI to post data to {for example, http://www.contoso.com} : ");
uriString = Console::ReadLine();
// Create a new WebClient instance.
WebClient* myWebClient = new WebClient();
Console::WriteLine(S"\nPlease enter the data to be posted to the URI {0}:", uriString);
String* postData = Console::ReadLine();
myWebClient->Headers->Add(S"Content-Type", S"application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
// Apply ASCII Encoding to obtain the String* as a Byte array.
Byte byteArray[] = Encoding::ASCII->GetBytes(postData);
Console::WriteLine(S"Uploading to {0} ...",  uriString);
// Upload the input String* using the HTTP 1.0 POST method.
Byte responseArray[] = myWebClient->UploadData(uriString, S"POST", byteArray);
// Decode and display the response.
Console::WriteLine(S"\nResponse received was {0}",
   Encoding::ASCII->GetString(responseArray));
