DBRestClient and DBRestClientDelegate replacement in v2 Objective-C SDK

Explorer | Level 4

Hi, 

 

In v1 API & SDK we used

DBClient: loadThumbnail, cancelFileLoad and deletePath and its delegate protocol DBRestClientDelegate

 

what are the v2 counterparts we should use to replace those two? (specially in the context of loading images thumbnails and deleting those files).

 

Thanks.

The API v2 Objective-C SDK works quite a bit differently than the API v1 iOS SDK, so I recommend looking through the readme file for the API v2 SDK first to get started. For example, the API v2 SDK doesn't use delegate methods like the v1 SDK did. It uses response blocks instead, that you set when you call the method.

 

To answer your specific questions, the equivalents would be the any of the getThumbnail methods, to get thumbnails for files, and the delete_ method, to delete any file or folder.

 

The API call methods returns DBTasks that you can call cancel on, to cancel any particular request.
