(VB.NET UWP/WinRT) Shopify OAuth2 Authentication

Demonstrates obtaining an access token for a Shopify application using OAuth2 authentication. This example is for non-web-apps, and requires that a browser window be displayed to get authorization from the user.

A web-based application would not obtain an OAuth2 token in this way, because the redirect URL would route back to the web application.

Note: Once an access token is in hand, the remainder of the Chilkat examples, which use an already-obtained access token, apply to both web and non-web apps.

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

Dim oauth2 As New Chilkat.OAuth2
Dim success As Boolean

' This should be the port in the localhost callback URL for your app.  
' The callback URL would look like "http://localhost:3017/" if the port number is 3017.
' Make sure that "http://localhost:3017/" is listed in your Whitelisted Redirection URLs for your Shopify app.
oauth2.ListenPort = 3017

' The full content of the Authorization Endpoin for Shopify looks like this:
' https://{shop}.myshopify.com/admin/oauth/authorize?client_id={api_key}&scope={scopes}&redirect_uri={redirect_uri}&state={nonce}&grant_options[]={option}

' Replace "chilkat" with your shop name.

' At this point, your application should load the URL in a browser.
' For example, 
' in C#:  System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(url);
' in Java: Desktop.getDesktop().browse(new URI(url));
' in VBScript: Set wsh=WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
'              wsh.Run url

' 4: Completed with Access Denied. The OAuth2 flow has completed, the background thread exited, and the error JSON is available in AccessTokenResponse property.
