FileWebRequest.BeginGetResponse Method

Begins an asynchronous request for a file system resource.

Namespace: System.Net
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public override IAsyncResult BeginGetResponse (
	AsyncCallback callback,
	Object state
)
public IAsyncResult BeginGetResponse (
	AsyncCallback callback, 
	Object state
)
public override function BeginGetResponse (
	callback : AsyncCallback, 
	state : Object
) : IAsyncResult

Parameters

callback

The AsyncCallback delegate.

state

An object that contains state information for this request.

Return Value

An IAsyncResult that references the asynchronous request.
Exception typeCondition

InvalidOperationException

The stream is already in use by a previous call to BeginGetResponse.

The asynchronous callback method that implements the AsyncCallback delegate uses the EndGetResponse method to return the actual FileWebResponse.

The following code example uses the BeginGetResponse method to asynchronously access a file system resource.


public class RequestDeclare
{
   public FileWebRequest myFileWebRequest;    
   
     public RequestDeclare()
    {
        myFileWebRequest = null;
    }
}

    public static ManualResetEvent allDone = new ManualResetEvent(false);

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        
        if (args.Length < 1)
        {
           Console.WriteLine("\nPlease enter the file name as command line parameter:");
            Console.WriteLine("Usage:FileWebRequest_resbeginend <systemname>/<sharedfoldername>/<filename>\nExample:FileWebRequest_resbeginend shafeeque/shaf/hello.txt");
        }
