LiveConnectClient.PostAsync(String, IDictionary<String ,Object>, CancellationToken) method

Performs an asynchronous post operation for a given path, message request body, and cancellation token. The post adds a new resource to a collection. [Windows Store apps only]

Note  Windows Phone doesn't support this method.

Syntax

  string path, 
  IDictionary<String ,Object> body, 
  CancellationToken ct
)

Parameters

path

Type: System.String

The path to the resource collection where the object is to post.

body

Type: IDictionary<String ,Object>

Error codes

NameMeaning
ArgumentNullException

A parameter that was passed in is null.

Remarks

This is a helper function that makes an HTTP POST call to the Live SDK REST reference.

PostAsync automatically uses the access token returned from user sign-in by the constructor, making it possible for a site to omit working directly with access tokens. If the access token cookie is set, PostAsync uses that as well.

Important  Before calling this method, your code must call either the LiveAuthClient.InitializeAsync or LiveAuthClient.LoginAsync method with, at minimum, the corresponding necessary scopes for [downloading | uploading | copying | deleting | reading | moving | creating | updating] the corresponding [data | files | file]. If you don’t, the call to this method may fail.
