How can I make a simple GetSellerEvents call using the .NET SDK (C#)?


GetSellerEvents C# sample

Detailed Description

This sample is using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, eBay .NET SDK 


After opening a C# project,

-  Add a reference to eBay.Service dll

-  Make sure Target Framework is NOT set to .NET Framework Client Profile


1.  Add these namespaces

using eBay.Service.Call;
using eBay.Service.Core.Sdk;
using eBay.Service.Core.Soap;

2.  Code Sample (This sample was in a windows form project in a button click):

                ApiContext oContext = new ApiContext();

                //' set the AuthToken
                oContext.ApiCredential.eBayToken = "xxx";
                //oContext.SoapApiServerUrl = "";
                oContext.SoapApiServerUrl = "";

                //' set the Site of the Context
                oContext.Site = eBay.Service.Core.Soap.SiteCodeType.US;
                oContext.ErrorLanguage = ErrorLanguageCodeType.en_US;

                //' the WSDL Version used for this SDK build
                oContext.Version = "1235";

                // very important, let's setup the logging
                ApiLogManager oLogManager = new ApiLogManager();
                oLogManager.ApiLoggerList.Add(new eBay.Service.Util.FileLogger("GetSellerEvents.log", true, true, true));
                oLogManager.EnableLogging = true;
                oContext.ApiLogManager = oLogManager;

                GetSellerEventsCall oGetSellerEventsCall = new GetSellerEventsCall(oContext);

                //' set the Version used in the call
                oGetSellerEventsCall.Version = oContext.Version;

                //' set the Site of the call
                oGetSellerEventsCall.Site = oContext.Site;

                //' enable the compression feature
                oGetSellerEventsCall.EnableCompression = true;


                DateTime ModTimeFrom, ModTimeTo;
                //CreateTimeTo set to the current time
                ModTimeTo = DateTime.ParseExact("2022-08-04 11:59:59", "yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss", null);
                //CreateTimeTo set to the current time
                ModTimeFrom = DateTime.ParseExact("2022-08-04 11:00:04", "yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm:ss", null);

                oGetSellerEventsCall.GetSellerEvents(ModTimeFrom, ModTimeTo);           

                //Add code to filter response here.........
