C# API call "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder" 400 (Bad Request)

C# API call "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder" 400 (Bad Request)

I am getting (400) Bad Request from the below call in c#.

 

 

string Url = "https://api.dropboxapi.com/2/files/list_folder";
using (WebClient client = new WebClient()) { NameValueCollection values = new NameValueCollection(); string datastring = "path="; client.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Bearer MYTOKEN"); client.Headers.Add("Content-Type", "application/json"); string retval = client.UploadString(Url, "POST", datastring); }

Not sure why it is giving 404. I searched online without any solution to this problem.

 

 

I changed the 

string datastring = "path=";
string datastring = "path=''";

It also not working

Can you print out the response body? It should contain a more useful error message.

Thanks Greg,

I scrapped the idea of using the API call. Instead I am using the .Net SDK method to call the api.

 

Thanks for the help.
