(VB.NET UWP/WinRT) Upload File in Blocks and Commit the Block List

Demonstrates how to upload a file in blocks and then commit the block list. For files larger than 64MB, this is the way to upload to Azure Storage. Azure limits the size of each block to a maximum of 4MB.

'  Azure Blob Service Example: Upload a file in blocks, and then commit the block list.
'  See also: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/dd135726.aspx

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

Dim rest As New Chilkat.Rest

'  Connect to the Azure Storage Blob Service
Dim bTls As Boolean = True
Dim port As Integer = 443
Dim bAutoReconnect As Boolean = True
'  In this example, the storage account name is "chilkat".
Dim success As Boolean = Await rest.ConnectAsync("chilkat.blob.core.windows.net",port,bTls,bAutoReconnect)
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.WriteLine(rest.LastErrorText)
    Exit Sub
End If


'  Provide Azure Cloud credentials for the REST call.
Dim azAuth As New Chilkat.AuthAzureStorage
azAuth.AccessKey = "AZURE_ACCESS_KEY"
'  The account name used here should match the 1st part of the domain passed in the call to Connect (above).
azAuth.Account = "chilkat"
azAuth.Scheme = "SharedKey"
azAuth.Service = "Blob"
'  This causes the "x-ms-version: 2015-02-21" header to be automatically added.
azAuth.XMsVersion = "2015-02-21"
success = rest.SetAuthAzureStorage(azAuth)

'  Note: The application does not need to explicitly set the following
'  headers: Content-Length, x-ms-date, Authorization.  These headers
'  are automatically set by Chilkat.


'  As the blocks are uploaded, we'll keep an XML block list for the subsequent commit..
Dim xml As New Chilkat.Xml
xml.Tag = "BlockList"

'  Any type of file can be uploaded in this way.  It can a text file, binary file, anything...
'  This example will upload an XML file that is approximately 275K in size.  It can be downloaded
'  at http://www.chilkatsoft.com/hamlet.xml
Dim fac As New Chilkat.FileAccess
success = fac.OpenForRead("qa_data/xml/hamlet.xml")
'  Assuming success for the example..

'  We'll upload in 16K blocks (normally a program would upload in larger block sizes than this,
'  but this is just an example...)
Dim blockSize As Integer = 16384

'  How many 16K blocks?  (Including 1 for the last partial block)
Dim numBlocks As Integer = fac.GetNumBlocks(blockSize)

Dim responseStr As String
Dim uriPath As New Chilkat.StringBuilder
Dim blockId As String
Dim dataBlock() As Byte
Dim i As Integer = 0
While i < numBlocks

    dataBlock = fac.ReadBlock(i,blockSize)
    If (fac.LastMethodSuccess <> True) Then
        Debug.WriteLine(fac.LastErrorText)
        Exit Sub
    End If


    '  Generate a base64 block ID.
    '  (Chilkat provides a helper method named GenBlockId to make this easy)
    '  A pre-base64 encoded block ID length of 4 is sufficient in this case because
    '  this file certainly won't have more than 99,999 blocks..
    blockId = fac.GenBlockId(i,4,"base64")

    '  Add this blockId to the list of blocks to be committed.
    xml.NewChild2("Latest",blockId)

    '  Build the URI path
    uriPath.Clear()
    success = uriPath.Append("/mycontainer/hamlet.xml?comp=block&blockId=")
    success = uriPath.Append(blockId)

    '  Upload this block..
    responseStr = Await rest.FullRequestBinaryAsync("PUT",uriPath.GetAsString(),dataBlock)
    If (rest.LastMethodSuccess <> True) Then
        Debug.WriteLine(rest.LastErrorText)
        Exit Sub
    End If


    '  Verify that we received a 201 status code.
    If (rest.ResponseStatusCode <> 201) Then
        '  Examine the request/response to see what happened.

'  Now commit the blocks.
'  Let's have a look at the XML that will commit the blocks:
