WebClient.OpenWriteAsync Method (Uri, String)

 

Opens a stream for writing data to the specified resource. This method does not block the calling thread.

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

[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading = true)]
public void OpenWriteAsync(
	Uri address,
	string method
)

Parameters

address
Type: System.Uri

The URI of the resource to receive the data.

method
Type: System.String

The method used to send the data to the resource. If null, the default is POST for http and STOR for ftp.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

The address parameter is null.

This method retrieves a writable stream that is used to send data to a resource. The stream is retrieved using thread resources that are automatically allocated from the thread pool. To receive notification when the stream is available, add an event handler to the OpenWriteCompleted event. When you close the stream, the thread blocks until the request is sent to address and a response is received.

This method does not block the calling thread while the stream is being opened. To block while waiting for the stream, use one of the OpenWrite methods.

If the BaseAddress property is not an empty string ("") and address does not contain an absolute URI, address must be a relative URI that is combined with BaseAddress to form the absolute URI of the requested data. If the QueryString property is not an empty string, it is appended to address.
