Re: Dropbox API

If you're using .NET, we recommend using the official Dropbox API v2 .NET SDK. That comes with several example apps.

 

To get an access token for a user, you should send them through the OAuth app authorization flow. The SDK will do most of the work for you, as shown in this example. Your app should never handle the user's username and password directly.

 

If something isn't working as expected, please share the steps to reproduce the issue, as well as the full error or unexpected output.

2. Get the access token

3. use this access token to upload file to the signed user dropbox account

Re: Dropbox API

Yes, the Dropbox OAuth app authorization flow allows you to prompt the user to sign in to Dropbox to authorize your app, resulting in an access token you can use to upload files. Please refer to the links in my previous comment in this thread for information on how to implement that.

 

If something isn't working as expected, please share the details of the issue so we can help.
