CloudTableClient.BeginCreateTable Method

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 create a table.

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

'Usage
Dim instance As CloudTableClient
Dim tableName As String
Dim callback As AsyncCallback
Dim state As Object
Dim returnValue As IAsyncResult

returnValue = instance.BeginCreateTable(tableName, callback, state)

public:
IAsyncResult^ BeginCreateTable (
	String^ tableName, 
	AsyncCallback^ callback, 
	Object^ state
)

Parameters

tableName

Type: System.String

The table name.

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 following code example creates a table asynchronously, and handles the error if the table already exists.

static void CreateTableAsync(CloudStorageAccount storageAccount)
{
    // Create service client for credentialed access to the Table service.
    CloudTableClient tableClient = 
        new CloudTableClient(
            storageAccount.TableEndpoint.ToString(),
            storageAccount.Credentials);

    // Begin the operation to create a new table.
    tableClient.BeginCreateTable("Customers", CreateTableAsyncCallback, tableClient);
}

public static void CreateTableAsyncCallback(IAsyncResult result)
{
    CloudTableClient tableClient = (CloudTableClient)result.AsyncState;

    try
    {
        // End the operation.
        tableClient.EndCreateTable(result);
    }
    catch (StorageClientException e)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Error: {0}", e.Message);
        Console.WriteLine("Extended error info: {0} : {1}", 
            e.ExtendedErrorInformation.ErrorCode,
            e.ExtendedErrorInformation.ErrorMessage);
    } 
}

For guidance about valid table names, see the "Table Names" section in Understanding the Table Service Data Model.
