We have an xamarin.ios native chat app, so i have to send large text in chat using HttpClient or WebClient by rest api.
Here We have sent small text in HttpClient GetStringAsync method but it's crashes the app on large text.
So Please guide me to send large text in xamarin.ios in Wep Api.

    How did you send the large text? If you are asking how to use the post method to send your request, this code could be helpful:

    string URL = "your-server-url";
    HttpClient _client = new HttpClient();
    var post = new PostModel { Title = "Title" };
    var content = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(post);
    var response = await _client.PostAsync(URL, new StringContent(content, Encoding.UTF8, "application/json"));
    var jsonString = await response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();
    public class PostModel
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Title { get; set; }
        public string Body { get; set; }
