CHttpServerContext::WriteClient 

Call this member function to send information to the HTTP client immediately.


BOOL WriteClient(
   LPVOID lpvBuffer,
   LPDWORD lpdwBytes,
   DWORD dwReserved = 0 
);

Parameters

lpvBuffer

Pointer to the buffer where the data is to be written.

lpdwBytes

Pointer to a DWORD that holds the number of characters to write from the buffer referenced by Buffer.

dwReserved

Reserved for future use.

Nonzero if successful, otherwise 0. If the call fails, the Windows function GetLastError may be called to determine the cause of the error.

For example, use WriteClient to send an error message.

This example demonstrates how to use WriteClient to immediately send binary data from the ISAPI extension. The example opens a binary file, sets the appropriate Context-Type header, and sends it to the browser. m_bSendHeaders is set to FALSE so that MFC won't add any types of headers.

This ISAPI extension can be used to stream binary data directly to the browser on the HTML page.
