Example

The following code example shows a locally defined AddWebPart method that adds a Web Part and then modifies it by calling the AddWebPart and SaveWebPart methods of the Web Part Pages service through a proxy. This code example and the proxy are part of a larger example provided for the Web Part Pages service.

Private Sub AddWebPart()
         ' NOTE: The Web Service we are using is defined on MyServer/_vti_bin
         ' Declare and initialize a variable for the WebPartPages Web Service.

         ' Authenticate the current user by passing their default
         ' credentials to the Web Service from the system credential cache.
         svc.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials
