DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs.Result Property

Gets the data that is downloaded by a DownloadStringAsync method.

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

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property Result As String

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 Shared Sub DownloadStringCallback2(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs)

            '  If the request was not canceled and did not throw 
            '  an exception, display the resource. 
            If e.Cancelled = False AndAlso e.Error Is Nothing Then 

                Dim textString As String = CStr(e.Result)
                Console.WriteLine(textString)
            End If 
        End Sub
