Downloading Files using C#/VB.NET

Hi Everyone… Downloading any type of file using http request is not a big at all using either  C# or Visual Basic.NET code. Please follow the steps: 

1. You need to add an reference 

using System.Net;  2. Now you can use the class named as WebClient, so just declare an object of this class and intialize using 0 argumnet constructor. 

WebClinet myClient = new WebClient (); 

3.  Now you can use the method DownloadFile of WebClient class to start downloading the file. 

//myClient.DownloadFile (<Http Address>,<Local Path>)

string httpAddress =;

string localPath = “C:\myDownload”;

myClient.DownloadFile (httpAddress, localPath);

4. Thats it…change the httpAddress of your desired file and localPatth. 

Keep Smiling 🙂
