DownloadManager handles the downloading of files from the internet using either HTTP or FTP protocols. All downloads take place in a background thread so your applications interface remains responsive.

DownloadManager provides several events for both the overall batch and for individual files that can be responded to such as:

  • DownloadError
  • DownloadCanceled
  • DowloadFileStarted
  • DownloadFileCompleted
  • FileDownloadProgressPercent
  • OverallDownloadProgressPercent
  • AllDownloadsCompleted

Here is an example of downloading a single file in iOS and showing an alert when it is completed:

using Appracatappra.ActionComponents.ActionDownloadManager;

private ActionDownloadManager _downloadManager;

public override void ViewDidLoad ()
    // Initialize the manager
    _dowloadManager=new ActionDownloadManager();

    // Wireup completion handler
    _downloadManager.AllDownloadsCompleted+= delegate() {
        // Update GUI on main thread
            // Display Alert Dialog Box
            using(var alert = new UIAlertView("DownloadManager", "All files have been downloaded", null, "OK", null))

    // Specify the directory to download the file to
    string directory=Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal);

    // Queue up a file to download: Source URL, Directory to download to and optionally renaming the file

    // Start the download process

Trial Version

The trial version of DownloadManager is limited to downloading a batch of no more than five (5) files at a time and then only image files in the .jpg format. The full version removes these restrictions.
