    I am getting an error when trying to create an ad unit. When I execute the
    API, I am getting the error "The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad
    Request.".
     
    Below is the code I am using. Do you see anything wrong with this? (The
    approach I am using is working fine for some other API calls like List
    adClients.
     
    public static void CreateAdUnit(string accountId)
    {
    string access_token =
    System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Session["Google_Access_Token"] as string;
     
    StringBuilder postBuilder = new StringBuilder();
    postBuilder.AppendFormat("{0}={1}", "key",
    Uri.EscapeUriString(apiKey));
    postBuilder.AppendFormat("&{0}={1}", "access_token",
    Uri.EscapeUriString(access_token));
     
    string hostUrl =
    "https://www.googleapis.com/adsensehost/v4.1/accounts/" + accountId +
    "/adclients/ca-" + accountId + "/adunits";
    HttpWebRequest request =
    (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(hostUrl + "?" + postBuilder.ToString());
    request.Method = "POST";
    request.Accept = "text/json";
     
    AdSenseAdUnitResource adUnitResource = new
    AdSenseAdUnitResource();

    adUnitResource.contentAdsSettings = new
    AdSenseAdContentAdsSettings();

    adUnitResource.contentAdsSettings.backupOption = new
    AdSenseAdBackupOption();
    adUnitResource.contentAdsSettings.backupOption.color = "FFFFFF";
    adUnitResource.contentAdsSettings.size = "SIZE_300_250";
    adUnitResource.contentAdsSettings.type = "TEXT";
     
    adUnitResource.customStyle = new AdSenseAdCustomStyle();
    adUnitResource.customStyle.corners = "VERY_ROUNDED";

    adUnitResource.customStyle.font = new
    AdSenseAdCustomStyleFont();
    adUnitResource.customStyle.font.family =
    "ACCOUNT_DEFAULT_FAMILY";
    adUnitResource.customStyle.font.size = "ACCOUNT_DEFAULT_SIZE";

    adUnitResource.customStyle.colors = new
    AdSenseAdCustomStyleColors();
    adUnitResource.customStyle.colors.background = "FFFFFF";
    adUnitResource.customStyle.colors.border = "FF0000";
    adUnitResource.customStyle.colors.text = "00FF00";
    adUnitResource.customStyle.colors.title = "000000";
    adUnitResource.customStyle.colors.url = "0000FF";

    adUnitResource.name = "Demo Ad1";
     
    JavaScriptSerializer js = new JavaScriptSerializer();
    string jsonData = js.Serialize(adUnitResource);
     
    using (var streamWriter = new
    StreamWriter(request.GetRequestStream()))
    {
    streamWriter.Write(jsonData);
    streamWriter.Flush();
    streamWriter.Close();
    }
     
    try // Get the response of the POST
    {
    HttpWebResponse webResponse =
    (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse();
     
    StreamReader sr = new
    StreamReader(webResponse.GetResponseStream());
     
    string responseData = sr.ReadToEnd().Trim();
    }
    catch (WebException wex)
    {
    // The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.
    throw wex;
    }
    catch
    {
    throw;
    }
    }
     
    Thanks.

    Hi Tony,
     
    I can't debug your code, but it looks good. Can you copy the actual JSON
    request? Have you tried using the APIs explorer with the same parameters?
     
    Cheers!
    Jose

    Hi Tony,
     
    The resource you link to (Accounts.adunits) is exactly what you should be
    passing in the request body.
     
    Cheers,
