Child Elements

None.

Parent Elements

Element

Description

<webRequestModules>

Specifies modules to use to request information from network hosts.

The <remove> element removes the registered Web request module for the specified URI prefix.

The value for the prefix attribute should be the leading characters of a valid URI -- for example, "http", or "http://www.contoso.com".

Configuration Files

This element can be used in the application configuration file or the machine configuration file (Machine.config).

The following code example removes the existing Web request module for HTTP and then registers a new custom Web request module for HTTP requests to www.contoso.com.

<configuration>
  <system.net>
    <webRequestModules>
      <remove prefix = "http">
      <add prefix="http"
           type="System.Net.HttpRequestCreator, System, Version=2.0.3600.0,
           Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"
      />
    </webRequestModules>
  </system.net>
</configuration>
