This is another exciting tutorial in which we will learn how to convert RAR file to JPG in C# using GorupDocs.Conversion Cloud SDK for .NET. In fact, there are Cloud SDKs exposed by GorupDocs.Conversion and these SDKs are available in multiple programming languages. In addition, you can opt for REST APIs to invoke end points provided by the GorupDocs.Conversion. On top of these options, you can perform RAR to JPG conversion using our online tool which is powered by GorupDocs.Conversion Cloud SDK. So, let’s start this blog post and see how can we build an RAR file converter in a .NET application programmatically.
The following points will be covered in this article:
RAR File Converter API Installation
Well, we will install GorupDocs.Conversion Cloud SDK for .NET, so, for that purpose, we have two easy options to install this JPG generator API. First, we can download the NuGet Package or the second option is to run the following command into the NuGet Package Manager:
Install-Package GroupDocs.Conversion-Cloud -Version 23.10.0
Next, we have to obtain the API credentials (Client ID + Client Secret) and we can get them easily from our API Cloud dashboard. Again, it’s just a matter of a few clicks, even though, you may visit this guide in case of any difficulty.
Convert RAR File to JPG in C#
So far, we are moving in the right direction and can start writing code samples in C#. Please be aware, that we already have a source RAR file in the API Cloud dashboard. However, you may also upload the file manually or programmatically by calling the UploadFile method.
The following steps demonstrate the RAR to JPG conversion in .NET:
- Create an object of the Configuration class and initialize it with the Client Secret & Client ID.
- Set the value of ApiBaseUrl to set the base URL of the JPG generator API.
- Instantiate an instance of the ConvertApi class with the object of the Configuration class.
- Create an object of the ConvertSettings class and initialize it by setting the values such as FilePath, Format, and OutputPath.
- Call the ConvertDocument method and pass an object of the ConvertDocumentRequest class to convert the RAR to JPG programmatically.
You may copy & paste the following code snippet to convert RAR file to JPG in C#:
So, after a successful run, you will see an image file(i.e. sample.jpg) created in the “test” folder in the API Cloud dashboard. Since you can download the file manually, you may download the file programmatically by invoking the DownloadFile method.
