DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs.Result Property

Gets the data that is downloaded by a DownloadStringAsync method.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public string Result { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A String that contains the downloaded data.

You should check the Error and Cancelled properties before using the data that is returned by this property. If the Error property's value is an Exception object or the Cancelled property's value is true, the asynchronous operation did not complete correctly and the Result property's value will not be valid.

The following code example displays the value of this property.


    private static void DownloadStringCallback2 (Object sender, DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs e)
    {
        // If the request was not canceled and did not throw
        // an exception, display the resource.
        if (!e.Cancelled && e.Error == null)
        {
            string textString = (string)e.Result;

            Console.WriteLine (textString);
        }
    }
