Dropbox API Uploading a file using the Dropbox .NET library


Example

This example uses the Dropbox .NET library to upload a file to a Dropbox account, using upload sessions for larger files:

private async Task Upload(string localPath, string remotePath)
{
    const int ChunkSize = 4096 * 1024;
    using (var fileStream = File.Open(localPath, FileMode.Open))
    {
        if (fileStream.Length <= ChunkSize)
        {
            await this.client.Files.UploadAsync(remotePath, body: fileStream);
        }
        else
        {
            await this.ChunkUpload(remotePath, fileStream, (int)ChunkSize);
        }
    }
}

private async Task ChunkUpload(String path, FileStream stream, int chunkSize)
{
    ulong numChunks = (ulong)Math.Ceiling((double)stream.Length / chunkSize);
    byte[] buffer = new byte[chunkSize];
    string sessionId = null;
    for (ulong idx = 0; idx < numChunks; idx++)
    {
        var byteRead = stream.Read(buffer, 0, chunkSize);

        using (var memStream = new MemoryStream(buffer, 0, byteRead))
        {
            if (idx == 0)
            {
                var result = await this.client.Files.UploadSessionStartAsync(false, memStream);
                sessionId = result.SessionId;
            }
            else
            {
                var cursor = new UploadSessionCursor(sessionId, (ulong)chunkSize * idx);

                if (idx == numChunks - 1)
                {
                    FileMetadata fileMetadata = await this.client.Files.UploadSessionFinishAsync(cursor, new CommitInfo(path), memStream);
                    Console.WriteLine (fileMetadata.PathDisplay);
                }
                else
                {
                    await this.client.Files.UploadSessionAppendV2Async(cursor, false, memStream);
                }
            }
        }
    }
}
