(Visual Basic 6.0) PayPal -- Get an OAuth 2.0 Access Token

curl https://api.sandbox.paypal.com/v1/oauth2/token \
  -H "Accept: application/json" \
  -H "Accept-Language: en_US" \
  -u "Client-Id:Secret" \
  -d "grant_type=client_credentials"

' Note: Requires Chilkat v9.5.0.64 or greater.

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

Dim rest As New ChilkatRest

' Make the initial connection.
' A single REST object, once connected, can be used for many PayPal REST API calls.
' The auto-reconnect indicates that if the already-established HTTPS connection is closed,
' then it will be automatically re-established as needed.
Dim bAutoReconnect As Long
bAutoReconnect = 1
Dim success As Long
success = rest.Connect("api.sandbox.paypal.com",443,1,bAutoReconnect)
If (success <> 1) Then
    Debug.Print rest.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

' Duplicate this request:

' 	curl https://api.sandbox.paypal.com/v1/oauth2/token \
' 	  -H "Accept: application/json" \
' 	  -H "Accept-Language: en_US" \
' 	  -u "Client-Id:Secret" \
' 	  -d "grant_type=client_credentials"

success = rest.AddHeader("Accept","application/json")
success = rest.AddHeader("Accept-Language","en_US")

' For additional help on where to find  your client ID and API secret, see PayPal Client_ID and API_Secret
success = rest.SetAuthBasic("PAYPAL_REST_API_CLIENT_ID","PAYPAL_REST_API_SECRET")

success = rest.AddQueryParam("grant_type","client_credentials")

Dim responseStr As String
responseStr = rest.FullRequestFormUrlEncoded("POST","/v1/oauth2/token")
If (rest.LastMethodSuccess <> 1) Then
    Debug.Print rest.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

Debug.Print rest.LastRequestHeader

' A sample response:

' 	{
' 	  "scope": "https://api.paypal.com/v1/payments/.* https://api.paypal.com/v1/vault/credit-card https://api.paypal.com/v1/vault/credit-card/.*",

' 	  "app_id": "APP-6XR95014BA15863X",
' 	  "expires_in": 28800
' 	}

Dim json As New ChilkatJsonObject
success = json.Load(responseStr)
json.EmitCompact = 0

' Check the response status code.  A 200 indicates success..
If (rest.ResponseStatusCode <> 200) Then
    Debug.Print json.Emit()
    Debug.Print "Failed."
    Exit Sub
End If

' Given that the access token expires in approx 8 hours,
' let's record the date/time this token was created.
' This will allow us to know beforehand if the token
' is expired (and we can then fetch a new token).
Dim dateTime As New CkDateTime
Dim bLocalTime As Long

Dim dtNow As Long

' Examine the access token and save to a file.
