Equivalent RestSharp implementation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm in a hurry and doing ten things at once here so I need a favor, how would this code look if written using RestSharp?

        private void Button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
                ASCIIEncoding encoding = new ASCIIEncoding(); string postData =
                  "CUSTOMER_NBR=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("7000") +
                  "&MERCHANT_NBR=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("700010") +
                  "&DBAVAL_NBR=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("1") +
                  "&TERMINAL_NBR=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("1") +
                  "&TRAN_TYPE =" +HttpUtility.UrlEncode("CCM1") +
                   "&PRICE=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("12.95") +
                   "&TRANSFER_VAL=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("1") +
                   "&BATCH_MODE=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("5") +
                   "&USER_ENT_METH=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("X") +
                   "&ACCOUNT_DATA=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("4110231398111234") + "&EXPENSE_DATE="
                   + HttpUtility.UrlEncode("0605");
                byte[] data = encoding.GetBytes(postData);
                // Prepare web request... 
                HttpWebRequest myRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("https://someservice.com");
                myRequest.Method = "POST"; myRequest.ContentType = "application/x-www-formurlencoded"; myRequest.ContentLength = data.Length;
                Stream newStream = myRequest.GetRequestStream();
                // Send the data. newStream.Write(data,0,data.Length); newStream.Close();
                HttpWebResponse loWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)myRequest.GetResponse();
                Encoding enc = System.Text.Encoding.GetEncoding(1252); StreamReader
                loResponseStream =
                new StreamReader(loWebResponse.GetResponseStream(), enc);
                string lcHtml = loResponseStream.ReadToEnd(); loWebResponse.Close();
                TextBox1.Text = lcHtml;

    I'm not entirely clear on the exact way RestSharp does this (for example do I use AddParameter with ParameterType.RequestBody ?).

    Any help much appreciated.


    PS: I need to use RestSharp as its our preferred library for this and we're doing this async, I just need to know the equivalent steps one would use - I can study this and get there myself but the time is a pain!
