		var folder = "/Users/user01/Downloads/";
		var lastpath = folder + file;
		var mem = new MemoryStream(File.ReadAllBytes(@"C:\Users\user01\Downloads\list.txt"));
		var upload = await dbx.Files.UploadAsync(lastpath, Dropbox.Api.Files.WriteMode.Overwrite.Instance, false, null, false, mem);

What error message do you get when you run your code?

I don't receive any message, but the file is not uploaded..

If there isn't an exception being raise with some error, the method should be returning. You're saving the output to `upload`. Can you share the output from `Console.WriteLine(upload);` in that case?

The only text displayed is
Dropbox.Api.FileMetaData

Re: using c# for upload text file

That's the FileMetadata returned by UploadAsync indicating that the call succeeded. You can access properties of that FileMetadata to see specific information about the uploaded file, e.g., PathDisplay.

 

Where are you looking such that it seems the file wasn't uploaded? If your app uses the "app folder" permission, make sure you're looking inside the app folder for the app, by default at "/Apps/<app folder name>". That "/Apps" will be localized depending on the locale set for the account though, e.g., "/Applicazioni" for Italian, etc.

Ok i Will check the path
If i want to upload on a specific dropbox folder how can I do?

Re: using c# for upload text file

You specify where in the Dropbox account you want to upload the file via the 'path' parameter that you give to UploadAsync. (That's the first parameter to UploadAsync in the code that you shared earlier.)

 

Note that for apps with the 'app folder' permission, the app can only upload within its app folder. The path you supply with be used relative to the app folder. If you want to be able to upload anywhere in the Dropbox account, you need to use the 'full Dropbox' permission instead. You can find more information about the different permissions here.

Ok I understand, the update of the app folder is immediate?

Re: using c# for upload text file

Yes, when uploading via the API, the file will be available in the app folder as soon as the upload API call returns.
