CloudBlobContainer.BeginSetMetadata Method (AsyncCallback, Object)

Updated: April 24, 2013

[This topic is part of the Microsoft Azure Storage Client Library 1.7, which has been deprecated. See Storage Client Library for the latest version.]

Begins an asynchronous operation to set user-defined metadata on the container.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.StorageClient.dll)

'Usage
Dim instance As CloudBlobContainer
Dim callback As AsyncCallback
Dim state As Object
Dim returnValue As IAsyncResult

returnValue = instance.BeginSetMetadata(callback, state)

public IAsyncResult BeginSetMetadata (
	AsyncCallback callback,
	Object state
)

Parameters

callback

Type: System.AsyncCallback

The callback delegate that will receive notification when the asynchronous operation completes.

state

Type: System.Object

A user-defined object that will be passed to the callback delegate.

Return Value

Type: System.IAsyncResult

An IAsyncResult that references the asynchronous operation.

The BeginSetMetadata method writes the metadata values that are specified by the container's Metadata property to the service. Note that setting the Metadata property sets metadata values on the container reference only; you must call BeginSetMetadata or SetMetadata to write them to the service.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
