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

' See Get GMail IMAP OAuth2 Access Token for Desktop App 
' for sample code showing how to obtain a GMail IMAP read/write access token.

' In this example, our access token was previously saved to the following file which contains JSON like this:
' 	{
' 	 "access_token": "ya39.Ci-XA_C5bGgRDC3UaD-h0_NeL-DVIQnI2gHtBBBHkZzrwlARkwX6R3O0PCDEzRlfaQ",
' 	 "token_type": "Bearer",
' 	 "expires_in": 3600,
' 	 "refresh_token": "1/r_2c_7jddspcdfesrrfKqfXtqo08D6Q-gUU0DsdfVMsx0c"
' 	}
' 
Dim json As New Chilkat.JsonObject
Dim success As Boolean = json.LoadFile("qa_data/tokens/_gmailFullAccess.json")
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.WriteLine("Failed to load GMail access token file.")
    Exit Sub
End If

Dim accessToken As String = json.StringOf("access_token")

' Do OAuth2 authentication by using the access token as the password in the Login method below...
Dim imap As New Chilkat.Imap

imap.Ssl = True
imap.Port = 993

' Connect to the GMail IMAP server.
success = imap.Connect("imap.gmail.com")
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.WriteLine(imap.LastErrorText)
    Exit Sub
End If


' Indicate that XOAUTH2 authentication is to be used:
imap.AuthMethod = "XOAUTH2"

' Login
' Use the email address of the GMail account that granted authorization.
success = imap.Login("user@gmail.com",accessToken)
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.WriteLine(imap.LastErrorText)
Else
    Debug.WriteLine("Successfully authenticated with GMail IMAP using XOAUTH2!")
End If
