LiveConnectClient.GetAsync(String, CancellationToken) method

Gets the file at the specified path and allows the operation to be canceled.

Note  Windows Phone doesn't support this method.

Syntax


public Task<LiveOperationResult> GetAsync(
  string path, 
  CancellationToken ct
)

Parameters

path

Type: String

The relative path to the item to retrieve.

ct

Type: CancellationToken

The cancellation token that is used to provide notification that operations should be cancelled.

Return value

Type: Task<LiveOperationResult>

The data returned by the API service for the get operation.

Remarks

This is a helper function that makes calls using HTTP GET to the Live Connect Representational State Transfer (REST) API. It supports all paths in the REST API.

GetAsync automatically uses the access token returned from user sign-in by the constructor, making it possible for a site to omit working directly with access tokens. If the access token cookie is set, GetAsync uses that as well.

Important  Before calling this method, your code must call either the LiveAuthClient.InitializeAsync or LiveAuthClient.LoginAsync method with, at minimum, the corresponding necessary scopes for [downloading | uploading | copying | deleting | reading | moving | creating | updating] the corresponding [data | files | file]. If you don’t, the call to this method may fail.
