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

'  --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'  Note: The code for setting up the Chilkat REST object and making the initial connection can be done once.
'  Once connected, the REST object may be re-used for many REST API calls.
'  (It's a good idea to put the connection setup code in a separate function/subroutine.)
'  --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'  It is assumed we previously obtained an OAuth2 access token.
'  This example loads the JSON access token file
'  saved by this example: Get Google Contacts OAuth2 Access Token

Dim jsonToken As New Chilkat.JsonObject
Dim success As Boolean = jsonToken.LoadFile("qa_data/tokens/googleContacts.json")

'  Provide the authentication credentials (i.e. the access token)
rest.SetAuthGoogle(gAuth)

'  ----------------------------------------------
'  OK, the REST connection setup is completed..
'  ----------------------------------------------

'  To update a contact, we'll first get the contact information
'  to get the etag.

'  To retrieve the contact, send the following:
'  	GET /m8/feeds/contacts/default/full/{contactId}
'  	GData-Version: 3.0

rest.AddHeader("GData-Version","3.0")

Dim sbPath As New Chilkat.StringBuilder
