HttpListenerPrefixCollection Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Represents the collection used to store Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) prefixes for HttpListener objects.

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

public class HttpListenerPrefixCollection : ICollection<string>, IEnumerable<string>, 
	IEnumerable
public class HttpListenerPrefixCollection implements ICollection<String>, 
	IEnumerable<String>, IEnumerable
public class HttpListenerPrefixCollection implements ICollection<String>, 
	IEnumerable<String>, IEnumerable

The Prefixes property returns instances of this collection.

The following code example creates an HttpListener and adds user-specified prefixes to its HttpListenerPrefixCollection.

// This example requires the System and System.Net namespaces.
public static void SimpleListenerExample(string[] prefixes)
{
    if (!HttpListener.IsSupported)
    {
        Console.WriteLine ("Windows XP SP2 or Server 2003 is required to use the HttpListener class.");
        return;
    }
    // URI prefixes are required,
    // for example "http://contoso.com:8080/index/".
    if (prefixes == null || prefixes.Length == 0)
      throw new ArgumentException("prefixes");
    
    // Create a listener.
    HttpListener listener = new HttpListener();
    // Add the prefixes.
    foreach (string s in prefixes)
    {
        listener.Prefixes.Add(s);
    }
    listener.Start();
    Console.WriteLine("Listening...");
    // Note: The GetContext method blocks while waiting for a request. 
    HttpListenerContext context = listener.GetContext();
    HttpListenerRequest request = context.Request;
    // Obtain a response object.
    HttpListenerResponse response = context.Response;
    // Construct a response.
    string responseString = "<HTML><BODY> Hello world!</BODY></HTML>";
    byte[] buffer = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(responseString);
    // Get a response stream and write the response to it.
    response.ContentLength64 = buffer.Length;
    System.IO.Stream output = response.OutputStream;
    output.Write(buffer,0,buffer.Length);
    // You must close the output stream.
    output.Close();
    listener.Stop();
}
