Hi,

I copied this method from MSDN:

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.webclient.downloadstringcompleted.aspx

        // Sample call : DownloadStringInBackground2 ("http://www.contoso.com/GameScores.html");
        public static void DownloadStringInBackground2(string address)
        {
            WebClient client = new WebClient();
            Uri uri = new Uri(address);

            // Specify that the DownloadStringCallback2 method gets called
            // when the download completes.
            client.DownloadStringCompleted += new DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler(DownloadStringCallback2);
            client.DownloadStringAsync(uri);
        }

        private void DownloadStringCallback2()
        {
            MessageBox.Show("H");
        }

And I'm getting this error message:

Error      1      No overload for 'DownloadStringCallback2' matches delegate 'System.Net.DownloadStringCompletedEventHandler'      ...


What is wrong?

you don't match the proper signature for the delegate http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.downloadstringcompletedeventhandler.aspx

it should be:

        private void DownloadStringCallback2(Object sender,
      DownloadStringCompletedEventArgs e)
        {
            MessageBox.Show("H");
        }
