(VB.NET UWP/WinRT) SharePoint -- Download Newer Files

Demonstrates how to download all files from a SharePoint folder that are newer than the local files.

Chilkat Universal Windows Platform (UWP) / WinRT Downloads

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

'  -------------------------------------------------------------------------
'  The following comments apply to SharePoint Windows classic authentication.
'  -------------------------------------------------------------------------
'  For example, imagine our SharePoint endpoint is https://xyzoffice.mycompany.com/
'  The SHAREPOINT_NTLM_DOMAIN would be "mycompany.com"
'  The SHAREPOINT_HTTPS_DOMAIN would be "xyzoffice.mycompany.com"
'  Also, the SHAREPOINT_USERNAME would be just the name, not a full email address.
'  for example, "chilkat" instead of "chilkat@mycompany.com"

Dim http As New Chilkat.Http

'  If SharePoint Windows classic authentication is used, then set the
'  Login, Password, LoginDomain, and NtlmAuth properties.
http.Login = "SHAREPOINT_USERNAME"
http.Password = "SHAREPOINT_PASSWORD"
http.LoginDomain = "SHAREPOINT_NTLM_DOMAIN"
http.NtlmAuth = True

'  -------------------------------------------------------------------------
'  The more common case is to use SharePoint Online authentication (via the SPOIDCRL cookie).
'  If so, do not set Login, Password, LoginDomain, and NtlmAuth, and instead
'  establish the cookie as shown at SharePoint Online Authentication
'  -------------------------------------------------------------------------


'  First we'll download a list of all the files in the /Documents folder.
'  This provides the names and last-modified date/times of the files located
'  on the SharePoint server.
