*if* thereisnotastack"phxDropboxLib"*then*

*put*GetPathToFile("phxDropboxLib.livecode") intophxLib

*start*usingstackphxLib

*else* *if* "phxDropboxLib"isnotamongthelinesofthestacksinuse*then*

*start*usingstack"phxDropboxLib"

*end* *if*

*--*

*if* "phxDropboxLib"isnotamongthelinesofthestacksinuse*then*

*answer*error"Unable to load phxDropboxLib"

*quit*

*end* *if*

*constant*myAppKey = "appappappapp"

*constant*myAppSec = "secsecsec"

*constant*myTokKey = "toktoktoktok"

*constant*myTokSec = "sectoksectok"

*--*

*if* notphx_DropboxAvailable() *then*

*answer*"Dropbox HTTPS connection NOT available"

*end* *if*

*get*phx_DropboxInitLib(myAppKey, myAppSec, myTokKey, myTokSec)

end openCard

----reading----

*put*phx_DropboxReadFile("sandbox", ("/folder/some.txt")) 
intoField"Name1"ofcard1

----writing------

*put*phx_DropboxWriteFile("sandbox", ("/folder/some.txt"), "text/html", 
true, myName) intofield"udontcme"ofcard1
