getResponseHeader Method (ServerXMLHTTP/IServerXMLHTTPRequest)

Retrieves the value of an HTTP header from the response body.

strValue = oServerXMLHTTPRequest.getResponseHeader(bstrHeader);

Parameters

bstrHeader

A case-insensitive header name.

Example

var xmlServerHttp = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.6.0");
xmlServerHttp.open("GET", "http://localhost/sample.xml", false);
xmlServerHttp.send();
WScript.Echo(xmlServerHttp.getResponseHeader("Server"));


Output

Returns the value of the Server field in the HTTP header, which indicates the current version of the Web server running locally. In this case, the value is "Microsoft-IIS/5.1" for Internet Information Services (IIS) version 5.1, which is the version provided if the local computer is running under Microsoft Windows XP.

HRESULT getResponseHeader(BSTR bstrHeader, BSTR* pbstrValue);

Parameters

bstrHeader[in]

A case-insensitive header name.

pbstrValue[out, retval]

The resulting header information.

Return Values

S_OK

The value returned if successful.

The results of this method are valid only after the send method has been successfully completed. The line, oServerXMLHTTPRequest.getResponseHeader("Content-Type"); returns the string "text/xml", assuming the server set "text/xml" as the content type.

The full list of header variables you can query can be accessed from the getAllResponseHeaders method.

Implemented in: MSXML 3.0 and MSXML 6.0
