WebClient.DownloadStringCompleted Event

Occurs when an asynchronous resource-download operation completes.

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

public event DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler DownloadStringCompleted

This event is raised each time an asynchronous operation to download a resource as a string completes. These operations are started by calling the DownloadStringAsync methods.

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 Consuming Events.

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

    // Sample call : DownloadStringInBackground2 ("http://www.contoso.com/GameScores.html");
    public static void DownloadStringInBackground2 (string address)
    {
        WebClient client = new WebClient ();
        Uri uri = new Uri(address);

        // Specify that the DownloadStringCallback2 method gets called 
        // when the download completes.
        client.DownloadStringCompleted += new DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler (DownloadStringCallback2);
        client.DownloadStringAsync (uri);
    }
