Easy as Eating Pie and Much Faster
If you are just retrieving a scalar (single) value from a REST method (as opposed to an array of json elements or so), it is easy as eating huckleberry pie to call the method and consume the value it returns. How easy? Czech it out:
private string GetScalarVal(string uri)
var client = new WebClient();
Now you can call this method as many times as there are methods of that ilk like so:
private void buttonYourLip_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
Hats off to Larry, I mean Jon Skeet, for turning me on to WebClient.DownloadString()
As the Frenchmen say, voilà!
I am the entire team at "Found in the Translation," which produces multilingual books (paperback and Kindle versions) such as "Don Quixote: In Spanish and English, Paragraph-by-Paragraph" among many others (English paired with not only Spanish, but also French and even Finnish). You can see all those books here: http://jsfiddle.net/clayshannon/pRgQL/75/
Personal web sites that I have created can be seen at http://usamaporama.azurewebsites.net and http://bigsurgarrapata.azurewebsites.net/ and http://www.awardwinnersonly.com
Peripatetic and picaresque, I have lived in eight states; specifically, besides my native California (where I was born and where I now again reside) in chronological order: New York, Montana, Alaska, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Idaho, and Missouri.
I am also a writer of both fiction (for which I use a nom de plume, "Blackbird Crow Raven", as a nod to my Native American heritage - I am "half cowboy, half Indian") and nonfiction: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/blackbirdcraven
