CloudBlobClient.GetPageBlobReference Method (String)
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)
The absolute URI to the blob, or a relative URI beginning with the container name.
Return ValueType: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.CloudPageBlobA reference to a page blob.
This method returns a reference to the named page blob, but it does not indicate whether the blob exists, as it does not make a round-trip to the service. If you need to ascertain the blob's existence, call a method such as FetchAttributes, and handle the resulting StorageClientException in the event the blob does not exist. The FetchAttributes method executes a HEAD request to populate the blob's properties and metadata and as such is a lightweight option for determining whether the blob exists.
