WebHeaderCollection::IsRestricted Method (String)

Tests whether the specified HTTP header can be set for the request.

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

public:
static bool IsRestricted(
	String^ headerName
)

Parameters

headerName
Type: System::String
The header to test.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if the header is restricted; otherwise false.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

headerName is nullptr or Empty.

ArgumentException

headerName contains invalid characters.

The IsRestricted method returns true to indicate that a header is restricted and must be set using properties instead of directly or is set by the system. The restricted headers are:

  • Accept

  • Connection

  • Content-Length

  • Content-Type

  • Date

  • Expect

  • Host

  • If-Modified-Since

  • Range

  • Referer

  • Transfer-Encoding

  • User-Agent

  • Proxy-Connection

The following example checks the IsRestricted property to see if any headers are prohibited from being set.


try
{
   // Create a web request for S"www.msn.com".
   HttpWebRequest^ myHttpWebRequest = dynamic_cast<HttpWebRequest^>(WebRequest::Create( "http://www.msn.com" ));

   // Get the associated response for the above request.
   HttpWebResponse^ myHttpWebResponse = dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(myHttpWebRequest->GetResponse());

   // Get the headers associated with the response.
   WebHeaderCollection^ myWebHeaderCollection = myHttpWebResponse->Headers;
   for ( int i = 0; i < myWebHeaderCollection->Count; i++ )
   {
      // Check if the first response header is restriced.
      if ( WebHeaderCollection::IsRestricted( dynamic_cast<String^>(myWebHeaderCollection->AllKeys[ i ]) ) )
               Console::WriteLine( "' {0}' is a restricted header", myWebHeaderCollection->AllKeys[ i ] );
      else
               Console::WriteLine( "' {0}' is not a restricted header", myWebHeaderCollection->AllKeys[ i ] );
   }
   myHttpWebResponse->Close();
}
catch ( WebException^ e ) 
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nWebException is thrown.\nMessage is: {0}", e->Message );
   if ( e->Status == WebExceptionStatus::ProtocolError )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Status Code : {0}", (dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(e->Response))->StatusCode );
      Console::WriteLine( "Status Description : {0}", (dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(e->Response))->StatusDescription );
      Console::WriteLine( "Server : {0}", (dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(e->Response))->Server );
   }
}
catch ( Exception^ e ) 
{
   Console::WriteLine( "Exception is thrown. Message is : {0}", e->Message );
}
