[Server/Client API‎] .Net Code Sample

This example uses the HttpClient class which sends and receives HTTP responses from a resource identified by a URI.

Calling REST API using .NET :

//Add Basic Authorization Headers

client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Authorization = new AuthenticationHeaderValue("Basic", Convert.ToBase64String(System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetBytes($"{<username>}:{<password>}")));

//Add Accept Header

client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Accept.Add(new MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/pdf"));

//Send GET request to Client Server

HttpResponseMessage response = client.GetAsync(client.BaseAddress).Result;

//Render out a PDF file

using (var stream = await response.Content.ReadAsStreamAsync())
          var fileinfo = new FileInfo("test1.pdf");
          using (var fileStream = fileinfo.OpenWrite())
              await stream.CopyToAsync(fileStream);

This example uses .NET v5.0.301
