  • Hi DevWP,

    >>When i call  HttpClient service and application go to background  (deactivated) when i go to activate it throw execption

    It will be better if you can try to post your code here.

    Then I have created the following WCF Rest Service:

    public interface IMyService1
      [WebGet(UriTemplate = "GetMyData")]
      string GetData();    

    After that I can call the above WCF Rest Service with the help of the HttpClient class:

    private async void CallHttpClientService()
        HttpClient httpClient = new HttpClient();
        HttpRequestMessage request = new HttpRequestMessage(HttpMethod.Get, "http://*******/MyService1.svc/GetMyData");
        HttpResponseMessage response = await httpClient.SendAsync(request);
        string result = await response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
        var MessageDialog = new MessageDialog(result );
        await MessageDialog.ShowAsync();

    It just works fine.

  •  public async Task<T> getAds(int type, string url)
                 HttpClient _client = new HttpClient();
                _client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("Type", type.ToString());
                HttpResponseMessage response = await _client.GetAsync(url + "?id=" + DateTime.Now);
                if ((int)response.StatusCode == 200 || (int)response.StatusCode == 201)
                    var jsonString = await response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
