Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.64 or greater.

Chilkat ActiveX Downloads

ActiveX for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows

Dim fso, outFile
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set outFile = fso.CreateTextFile("output.txt", True)

' 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.

set rest = CreateObject("Chilkat_9_5_0.Rest")

' Before sending REST API calls, the REST object needs to be
' initialized for OAuth1.
' See Xero 2-Legged OAuth1 Setup for sample code.

' Assuming the REST object's OAuth1 authenticator is setup, and the initial
' connection was made, we may now send REST HTTP requests..

' This example will upload a file to a folder using the Xero FILES API

folderID = "0ffca059-f2f1-4271-8de9-4b87c8c2c638"
' This JPG image can be downloaded from https://www.chilkatsoft.com/syncedImages/penguins.jpg

' Load the JPG image from a file.
set jpgData = CreateObject("Chilkat_9_5_0.BinData")

' A 201 response is expected for actual success.
' The Xero documentation doesn't explicitly state it, but that's what we've found in testing.
