Folder access via path string

Availability: SharpBox 1.0

The following example shows get access to a specific folder of an existing cloud storage. This example uses the implemented drop box storage provider, so it needs also a valid dropbox configuration. To get the sample up and running an own dropbox account is neccessary. Additionally a valid application key and secret is needed. If you don't have one, use our test-application.
        static void PathBasedAccess()
            // instanciate a new credentials object, e.g. for dropbox
            DropBox.DropBoxCredentials credentials = new AppLimit.CloudComputing.SharpBox.DropBox.DropBoxCredentials();

            // attach the application information 
            credentials.ConsumerKey = "TheApplicationKey";
            credentials.ConsumerSecret = "TheApplicationSecret";

            // add the account information
            credentials.UserName = "";
            credentials.Password = "mypassword";

            // instanciate a cloud storage configuration, e.g. for dropbox
            DropBox.DropBoxConfiguration configuration = DropBox.DropBoxConfiguration.GetStandardConfiguration();

            // instanciate the cloudstorage manager
            CloudStorage storage = new CloudStorage();

            // open the connection to the storage
            storage.Open(configuration, credentials);
            // get the folder entry path bases
            ICloudDirectoryEntry publicFolder = storage.GetFolder("/Public");

            // add your code her 

            // close the cloud storage connection
            if (storage.IsOpened)
