(VB.NET UWP/WinRT) PayPal -- Get an OAuth 2.0 Access Token

Demonstrates how to send a request to get a PayPal OAuth2 access token. Sends an HTTP request equivalent to the following:

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 Chilkat.Rest

' 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 Boolean = True
Dim success As Boolean = Await rest.ConnectAsync("api.sandbox.paypal.com",443,True,bAutoReconnect)

    Debug.WriteLine(rest.LastErrorText)

' Duplicate this request:

' 	  -H "Accept: application/json" \
' 	  -H "Accept-Language: en_US" \
' 	  -u "Client-Id:Secret" \
' 	  -d "grant_type=client_credentials"

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

' Given that the access token expires in approx 8 hours,

' is expired (and we can then fetch a new token).
