Hi,

I am uploading bulk files using Dropbox .NET API.

I want that after uploading the file how to get a complete path or URL like - "https://www.dropbox.com/work/Apps/*****/testinng234/1.mp3". So that I can able to use this link directly. 

Please suggest me the best way and share some code.

When you upload a file using the Dropbox .NET SDK, e.g., via the UploadAsync method, you'll get a FileMetadata object back for the uploaded file.

You can get the PathDisplay or PathLower property from that object to see the path of the uploaded file. That will be relative to your app's root though, e.g., to the app folder for your app, if your app uses the app folder permission.

The Dropbox API doesn't offer a way to get the full Dropbox web site URL/path for a file programmatically, but I'll pass this along as a feature request.

I also need to get my uploaded file's URL. Is there any update about this feature request?

@gorkemhacioglu No, unfortunately I don't have news on this request.

Need more support?
