BeginUpload Method

Summary

Starts uploading a document to the cache.

Syntax
C#
VB
Java
C++
public static Uri BeginUpload( 
   UploadDocumentOptions options 
) 
Public Shared Function BeginUpload( 
   ByVal options As UploadDocumentOptions 
) As System.Uri 
public:  
   static System::Uri^ BeginUpload( 
      UploadDocumentOptions^ options 
   ) 
public static URI beginUpload(UploadDocumentOptions options) 

Parameters

options

Options to use with the new document. This value cannot be null.

Return Value

The temporary URL for the uploaded document.

Remarks

This method will throw an exception if neither UploadDocumentOptions.Cache nor Cache has been set up with a valid cache object.

BeginUpload, UploadDocument, and AbortUploadDocument can be used to upload a document in chunks to the cache used by this DocumentFactory. After the document is uploaded, you can use LoadFromUri to create a LEADDocument object from the data.

When uploading is finished, EndUpload must be called to inform the factory that the uploading process has finished.

This method returns a URL with a special LEAD cache scheme to indicate a loaded document. This URL can be detected using IsUploadDocumentUri helper method.

Refer to Uploading Using the Document Library for detailed information on how to use these methods and the various options available.
