(Visual Basic 6.0) REST Asynchronous Streaming Upload Simplified
This is example is simplified in that it calls FullRequestStreamAsync instead of making calls to SendReqStreamBodyAsync, ReadResponseHeader, and ReadRespBodyStr.
It demonstrates how to create and write to a stream that feeds an asynchronous upload to cloud storage. This particular example demonstrates an upload to the Azure Cloud Storage service. The same concepts apply to S3, Google Cloud, and Google Drive.
' This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked. ' See Global Unlock Sample for sample code. Dim rest As New ChilkatRest ' Connect to the Azure Storage Blob Service Dim bTls As Long bTls = 1 Dim port As Long port = 443 Dim bAutoReconnect As Long bAutoReconnect = 1 ' In this example, the storage account name is "chilkat".
