This is a great sample David. The REST API is also very useful if you want to connect to the Azure storage from a Silverlight App where you can't reference the Azure SDK assemblies. I had to change though the HttpWebRequest to use BeginGetRequestStream
and provide an AsyncCallBack. Would be good if you provided with both sync and async modes.
In addition, I am connecting to my blob stoage using https and the BlobHelper class supports only http (again, I changed that easily and it worked fine :-)).
One question I would to ask you - if I want to uplaod an image using the the PutBlob method, I have noticed that the content parameter is of a String type. Does that mean I need to convert my image to base64 string and send that to the PutBlob method or
is there another way to do that ?
Thx again form for this great sample.
