Can I use an Autorest client in blazor

asp.net-core autorest blazor c# mono

Question

I am getting a System.PlatformNotSupportedException from the mono platform when trying to run my blazor app on webassembly. I autogenerated a web api client using Autorest. Everything is compiling fine but when I load the code in the browser I get the error below in the browser console.

Using a preview build of VS2017.

module.printErr @ MonoPlatform.ts:192

Yes it is possible. But you have to use the HttpClient that is injected by the blazor framework as described here:

https://learn-blazor.com/architecture/rest-api/

(thanks for the link Flores!)

The HttpClient is marked as protected in the Microsoft.Rest.ServiceClient that is used by Autorest. So to inject the HttpClient from blazor, you can create a new partial of the autogenerated client class and add a SetHttpClient method:

The class generated by autorest:

public partial class YourApi : ServiceClient<YourApi>, IYourApi
{
    ...
}

Your new partial:

public partial class YourApi
{
    public void SetHttpClient(HttpClient client) {
        this.HttpClient = client;
    }
}

Nice and simple!
