WebClient.OpenReadTaskAsync WebClient.OpenReadTaskAsync WebClient.OpenReadTaskAsync WebClient.OpenReadTaskAsync Method

Definition

Opens a readable stream containing the specified resource as an asynchronous operation using a task object. These methods do not block the calling thread.

Overloads

OpenReadTaskAsync(String) OpenReadTaskAsync(String) OpenReadTaskAsync(String) OpenReadTaskAsync(String)

Opens a readable stream containing the specified resource as an asynchronous operation using a task object.

OpenReadTaskAsync(Uri) OpenReadTaskAsync(Uri) OpenReadTaskAsync(Uri) OpenReadTaskAsync(Uri)

Opens a readable stream containing the specified resource as an asynchronous operation using a task object.

OpenReadTaskAsync(String) OpenReadTaskAsync(String) OpenReadTaskAsync(String) OpenReadTaskAsync(String)

Opens a readable stream containing the specified resource as an asynchronous operation using a task object.

public:
 System::Threading::Tasks::Task<System::IO::Stream ^> ^ OpenReadTaskAsync(System::String ^ address);
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComVisible(false)]
public System.Threading.Tasks.Task<System.IO.Stream> OpenReadTaskAsync (string address);
member this.OpenReadTaskAsync : string -> System.Threading.Tasks.Task<System.IO.Stream>
Public Function OpenReadTaskAsync (address As String) As Task(Of Stream)

Parameters

address
String String String String

The URI of the resource to retrieve.

Returns

The task object representing the asynchronous operation. The Result property on the task object returns a Stream used to read data from a resource.

Exceptions

The URI formed by combining BaseAddress and address is invalid.

-or-

An error occurred while downloading the resource.

-or-

An error occurred while opening the stream.

Remarks

This operation will not block. The returned Task<TResult> object will complete after the a readable stream to the data resource has been opened. This method does not block the calling thread while the stream is opening.

This method retrieves a Stream instance used to access the resource specified by the address parameter. The stream is obtained using thread resources that are automatically allocated from the thread pool.

Note

You must call Stream.Close when you are finished with the Stream to avoid running out of system resources.

Asynchronous operations that have not completed can be canceled using the CancelAsync method.

If the BaseAddress property is not an empty string ("") and address does not specify an absolute URI, address must be a relative URI that is combined with BaseAddress to form the absolute URI of the requested resource. If the QueryString property is not null, it is appended to address.

This method uses the RETR command to download an FTP resource. For an HTTP resource, the GET method is used.

Note

This member outputs trace information when you enable network tracing in your application. For more information, see Network Tracing in the .NET Framework.
