Batch Dropbox Thumbnails .net SDK

Batch Dropbox Thumbnails .net SDK

Hello - 

Echoing some of the past sentiment here about the .net SDK samples being thin.  I've spent a day or two looking for a good example on how to prepare the parameters and build the call to the GetThumnailBatchAsync method correctly. 
Presently, I am stuck on creating the ThumbnailArgs which appear to be provided as a list of Thumbnail args.  The problem I'm having is that all the properties of a ThumbailArg are private setters.  I have a list of files I've created, but how do I use the list of file paths to create all the entires I need thumbnails for?

You can make a list of ThumbnailArg and use it to call GetThumbnailBatchAsync like this:

 

var paths = new String[] { "/Photos/1.jpg", "/Photos/2.jpg"};

var thumbnailsArgs = new List<ThumbnailArg> { };
foreach (var path in paths)
{
    thumbnailsArgs.Add(new ThumbnailArg(path: path, format: ThumbnailFormat.Png.Instance));
}

GetThumbnailBatchResult getThumbnailBatchResult = await this.client.Files.GetThumbnailBatchAsync(thumbnailsArgs);

Thanks Greg-DB! 

This looks pretty much like what I ended up doing!   Did I miss this in the SDK examples somewhere?

No, this isn't in the examples for the SDK. I just wrote that for this thread.
