Up- and Download file in/from the cloud storage

Availability: SharpBox 1.0

The following example shows how to upload and download a file in the public folder of an existing cloud storage with the help of the existing comfort functions. 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 DownloadFileSimple()
            // 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 = "myaccount@dropbox.com";
            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);            

            // download your file from the public folder
            storage.DownloadFile("/Public/test,dat", "%temp%");

            // upload your file to the public folder
            storage.UploadFile("%temp%\test.dat", "/Public");

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