How to get Progress Status while uploading or downloading a file ( in VB.Net ) ?

Explorer | Level 3

I am using DropboxClient.Files.UploadAsync method for uploading file, and it works perfectly, but it only limits up to 150MB per file, is there a way also to upload larger files? And I would like also to ask for proper code on how to get upload or download status and submit the value to a label and a progress bar, I have seem to found what I am asking for in this question (https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/API-support/How-to-get-Progress-Status-while-uploading-downloading-a...), but it is in a different programming language. I would prefer a code from VB.net. It would be a big help if I could get an answer and I would like to thank you in advance.

You can upload files of any size, i.e., larger than 150 MB, by using "upload sessions":

The .NET SDK still doesn't offer native progress listeners, but I'll add your vote to the feature request.

I don't have a version of that sample code from the other thread in VB.Net unfortunately.

Thank you for your quick response, I guess I will try to use a code translator this time and will try to figure things out based on your given links. Thanks for your time.
