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

Dim instance As CloudPageBlob

Dim options As BlobRequestOptions

instance.Create(size, options)

public void Create (
	long size,
	BlobRequestOptions options



Type: System.Int64

The maximum size of the blob, in bytes. This value must be a multiple of 512.


An object that specifies any additional options for the request.

The following code example creates a page blob that has a maximum size of 4 MB.

static void CreatePageBlob(Uri blobEndpoint, string accountName, string accountKey)
    //Create service client for credentialed access to the Blob service.
    CloudBlobClient blobClient = 
        new CloudBlobClient(blobEndpoint, new StorageCredentialsAccountAndKey(accountName, accountKey));

    //Get a reference to the page blob.
    CloudPageBlob pageBlob = blobClient.GetPageBlobReference("mycontainer/mypageblob");

    //Create a page blob 4 MB in size.

    //Verify that this is a page blob.

To create a page blob, call Create, specifying the maximum size of the page blob in bytes. A page blob may be up to 1 TB in size.
