Asp.net Web Forms obtain access token in ReturnURI page

Asp.net Web Forms obtain access token in ReturnURI page

I'm trying to use Dropbox .Net from an asp.net Web Forms application. I'm successfully able to get control in my ReturnURI web page. But I can't find any sample code on how to proceed further to obtain the AccessToken in Page_Load of that page. Please help or at least give a pointer to the sample code. The examples are not for Web Forms.

 

Thanks.

You can see how the authorization code is exchanged for an access token in the .NET SDK SimpleBlogDemo example here:

https://github.com/dropbox/dropbox-sdk-dotnet/blob/master/dropbox-sdk-dotnet/Examples/SimpleBlogDemo...

The 'code' and 'state' are returned by URL parameters, and after the 'state' is validated, you can use 'ProcessCodeFlowAsync' to exchange the 'code' for an access token.

Hi Greg,

 

Thanks for the hint. However, that code was still MVC and I have never done any async stuff in Web Forms. So I had to do some research. Finally, I was able to get the access token. Now I can try the API in Web Forms.

 

Many thanks,

Sanjay
