HttpStreamContent.ReadAsStringAsync | readAsStringAsync method

Serialize the HttpStreamContent to a String as an asynchronous operation.

Syntax


httpStreamContent.readAsStringAsync().done( /* Your success and error handlers */ );

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: IAsyncOperationWithProgress<String, UInt64>

The object representing the asynchronous operation.

Remarks

This operation will not block. The returned IAsyncOperationWithProgress(String, UInt64) object will complete after all of the content has been written to the String.

The HttpStreamContent class can be used to stream content that might be of arbitrary length. The ReadAsStringAsync method will fail if all of the HttpStreamContent can't fit in memory since this method requires the entire content to be buffered in memory first.
