Console::WriteLine( "\nUploading to {0} ...", uriString );
// 'The Upload(String, NameValueCollection)' implicitly method sets HTTP POST as the request method.

// Decode and display the response.
Console::WriteLine( "\nResponse received was :\n {0}", Encoding::ASCII->GetString( responseArray ) );
Console.Write("\nPlease enter the URI to post data to : ");
string uriString = Console.ReadLine();

// Create a new WebClient instance.
WebClient myWebClient = new WebClient();

// Create a new NameValueCollection instance to hold some custom parameters to be posted to the URL.
NameValueCollection myNameValueCollection = new NameValueCollection();

// Add necessary parameter/value pairs to the name/value container.
myNameValueCollection.Add("Name",name);            
myNameValueCollection.Add("Address",address);
myNameValueCollection.Add("Age",age);

Console.WriteLine("\nUploading to {0} ...",  uriString);
// 'The Upload(String,NameValueCollection)' implicitly method sets HTTP POST as the request method.

// Decode and display the response.

Console.WriteLine("Please enter the following parameters to be posted to the URL:")
Console.Write("Name:")
Dim name As String = Console.ReadLine()

Console.Write("Age:")
Dim age As String = Console.ReadLine()

Console.Write("Address:")
Dim address As String = Console.ReadLine()

' Add necessary parameter/value pairs to the name/value container.
myNameValueCollection.Add("Name", name)
myNameValueCollection.Add("Address", address)
myNameValueCollection.Add("Age", age)

Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Uploading to {0} ...", uriString)
' The Upload(String,NameValueCollection)' method implicitly sets the HTTP POST as the request method.			
Dim responseArray As Byte() = myWebClient.UploadValues(uriString, myNameValueCollection)

' Decode and display the response.
Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Response received was :" + ControlChars.Cr + "{0}", Encoding.ASCII.GetString(responseArray))

Remarks

The UploadValues method sends a NameValueCollection to a server. This method blocks while uploading the data. To continue executing while waiting for the server's response, use one of the UploadValuesAsync methods.

If the underlying request is not understood by the server, the underlying protocol classes determine what occurs. Typically, a WebException is thrown with the Status property set to indicate the error.

If the Content-type header is null, the UploadValues method sets it to "application/x-www-form-urlencoded".

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

This method uses the STOR command to upload an FTP resource. For an HTTP resource, the POST method is used.
