(.NET Core C#) SharePoint -- Get Server Form Digest Value

Demonstrates how to get a server form digest value to be placed in the X-RequestDigest HTTP request header for POST, PUT, MERGE, and DELETE requests. A form digest value is typically valid for 1800 seconds (i.e. 30 minutes). This example persists the value to a file, and only requests a new form digest value if the existing one is near expiration.

//  This requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
//  See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

//  First, let's see if we already have a persisted form digest value
//  that hasn't yet expired.

bool success;

//  My example code (below) persists the form digest XML in this format:

//  	<d:FormDigestValue>0x3059FFB920651834540F3E6792EA73F5746B302E953FF4E808E485DB1E6C2836C7CF924644995F092453B02A94DE14A7962674B7B16780AF16EAFB8C246BCDC7,12 Apr 2017 17:08:22 -0000</d:FormDigestValue>

//  When creating, updating, and deleting SharePoint entities, we'll need
//  to first get the server's form digest value to send in the X-RequestDigest header.
//  This can be retrieved by making a POST request with an empty body to
