Hey @ElsayedGamal, while the link is temporarily copied in your clipboard & you could paste it across platforms (though your IDE might be an exception), I’m interested in what you have in mind as an ideal end-result. Would you like to incorporate that within your code somehow? If you could elaborate a bit on what you’d like to achieve, I’ll do my best to check back on our resources & see if there’s a way to get going on that. Thanks in advance! 

[Brief sidenote: Your English is perfect by the way, it all makes perfect sense! 😊]

You'll need to use the Dropbox API for that.

That's something for you to determine, using the documentation I linked above. The API is a programming interface for Dropbox, intended for people that are developing applications that will interact with Dropbox.

Read through the documentation and post questions in the API section of the forums.
