C# Question

How to convert this HipChat curl post to C#?

I'm trying to create a notification for HipChat and unfortunately their HipChat-CS (https://github.com/KyleGobel/Hipchat-CS) nuget package doesn't work. So, I wanted to investigate how I could manually send a notification but their example is using cURL, which I'm unfamiliar with. I'd like to take their example and make it into something I can use with my c# application. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here's the cURL example:

curl -d '{"color":"green","message":"My first notification (yey)","notify":false,"message_format":"text"}' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' https://organization.hipchat.com/v2/room/2388080/notification?auth_token=authKeyHere

Thank you again!



You can use an HttpWebRequest to establish the connection and send your json payload. You'll need to add System.Net to your using directives.

string jsonContent = "{\"color\":\"green\",\"message\":\"My first notification (yey)\",\"notify\":false,\"message_format\":\"text\"}";
byte[] jsonBytes = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(jsonContent);
var request = (HttpWebRequest) WebRequest.Create("https://organization.hipchat.com/v2/room/2388080/notification?auth_token=authKeyHere");
request.ContentType = "application/json";
request.Method = "POST";
request.ContentLength = jsonBytes.Length;

using (var reqStream = request.GetRequestStream())
    reqStream.Write(jsonBytes, 0, jsonBytes.Length);

 WebResponse response = request.GetResponse();
//access fields of response in order to get the response data you're looking for.
