Pass file to another project in ASP.NET

Kajbo Published in 2018-02-14 09:23:45Z

I'm trying to create simple app for editing .xml files. I have created another project within one solution to which I'm trying to pass file, where I would like to edit and save it. But is that possible? I have tried to import System.web and then request HttpPostedFile as parameter of one function, but VS do not recognize such type there. What am I doing wrong?

Alternatively, what is better way to pass file from one project to another?

There are multiple ways to realize passing data between different classes.

One way is to pass it with a Stream, as System.File.Open (MSDN) already gives back a FileStream. With streams you need to be careful with the handling of opening, closing, reading etc (see using).

Another way is by simply passing the path of the file as a string and open it elsewhere. But as you are trying to use a HttpPostedFile-object, I guess you're working on a project running on 2 different machines.

You should read into streaming data, and with streaming it's irrelevant if you got the data from a file, a request or even another stream.

Edit: It seems your main first problem here was that the class HttpPostedFile was in a assembly you didnt referenced before. You can get tips for situations like these by pressing Ctrl + .. VS suggests you things like creating a class for unknown objects or, if it's a common known object, adding references.
