I cant seem to find my error. I am trying to create a list. I have followed the API at http://developer.constantcontact.com/doc/contactLists#create_list, but still do not seem to be able to create the list. I believe it is in the construction of my XML string. I suspect a small oversight. But when I execute the code in the attached file, all I get is: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request. Any help or insights would be appreciated.
I am using VB.net and have attached my code in the enclosed text file. I tried to copy and paste the code right in to this post, but it kept pasting incorrectly, hence the attachment.
Looking at your XML, there were only a few things I needed to modify to get this to successfully create a new list.
1. Add quotes around application/vnd.ctct+xml in your opening <content> tag.
2. Remove </Contact> from your XML as this node is never opened and is not required for creating a contact list.
You can find an example of the XML that would need to be posted in order to create a new list under Creating a New List. I hope this helps to clear up any points of confusion.
