Public Event DownloadStringCompleted As DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler

The DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler is the delegate for this event. The DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs class provides the event handler with event data.

For more information about handling events, see NIB: Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates setting an event handler for this event.

'  Sample call : DownloadStringInBackground2 ("http:' www.contoso.com/GameScores.html")
Public Shared Sub DownloadStringInBackground2(ByVal address As String)

	Dim client As WebClient = New WebClient()

	'  Specify that the DownloadStringCallback2 method gets called
	'  when the download completes.
	AddHandler client.DownloadStringCompleted, AddressOf DownloadStringCallback2
                      Dim uri as Uri = New Uri(address)
End Sub
