Using nSoftware IP*Works! AUTH v16.0.6975 for ActiveX ASP COM Delphi .NET Edition in Your Applications
Once you have installed the library, you can start using it in your applications. The library provides a set of components that encapsulate the functionality of various authentication and authorization protocols. Each component has a common interface that makes it easy to use and configure. You can also customize the behavior of each component by setting various properties and handling events.
To use a component in your application, you need to add a reference to the library file (such as nsoftware.IPWorksAuth.dll for .NET) and import the namespace (such as using nsoftware.IPWorksAuth; for C#). Then you can create an instance of the component class (such as OAuthClient oauth = new OAuthClient(); for C#) and set its properties (such as oauth.AuthorizationEndpoint = \"https://example.com/oauth/authorize\"; for C#). You can also attach event handlers to handle the component's events (such as oauth.OnAuthorization += new OAuthAuthorizationHandler(oauth_OnAuthorization); for C#).
For example, if you want to use the OAuthClient component to authenticate a user with an OAuth 2.0 server, you can follow these steps:
Create an instance of the OAuthClient component and set its properties according to your OAuth 2.0 server's configuration.
Call the GetAuthorization method to initiate the authorization flow. This will open a web browser window where the user can enter their credentials and grant access to your application.
Handle the OnAuthorization event to receive the authorization code from the server.
Call the GetAccessToken method to exchange the authorization code for an access token.
Use the access token to make requests to the protected resources on behalf of the user.
The following code snippet shows how to use the OAuthClient component in C#:
// Create an instance of the OAuthClient component
OAuthClient oauth = new OAuthClient();
// Set the properties according to your OAuth 2.0 server's configuration
