HTTP_QUERY_IF_RANGE Retrieves the contents of the If-Range request-header field. This header allows the client application to check if the entity related to a partial copy of the entity in the client application's cache has not been updated. If the entity has not been updated, send the parts that the client application is missing. If the entity has been updated, send the entire updated entity. HTTP_QUERY_IF_UNMODIFIED_SINCE Retrieves the contents of the If-Unmodified-Since request-header field. HTTP_QUERY_LINK Obsolete. Maintained for legacy application compatibility only. HTTP_QUERY_LAST_MODIFIED Receives the date and time at which the server believes the resource was last modified. HTTP_QUERY_LOCATION Retrieves the absolute URI used in a Location response-header. HTTP_QUERY_MAX Retrieves the maximum value of an HTTP_QUERY_* value. HTTP_QUERY_MAX_FORWARDS Retrieves the number of proxies or gateways that can forward the request to the next inbound server.

HTTP_QUERY_RANGE Retrieves the byte range of an entity. HTTP_QUERY_RAW_HEADERS Receives all the headers returned by the server. Each header is terminated by "\0". An additional "\0" terminates the list of headers. HTTP_QUERY_RAW_HEADERS_CRLF Receives all the headers returned by the server. Each header is separated by a carriage return/line feed (CR/LF) sequence. HTTP_QUERY_REFERER Receives the URI of the resource where the requested URI was obtained. HTTP_QUERY_REFRESH Obsolete.

HTTP_QUERY_RETRY_AFTER Retrieves the amount of time the service is expected to be unavailable. HTTP_QUERY_SERVER Retrieves information about the software used by the origin server to handle the request. HTTP_QUERY_SET_COOKIE Receives the value of the cookie set for the request. HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_CODE Receives the status code returned by the server. HTTP_QUERY_STATUS_TEXT Receives any additional text returned by the server on the response line. HTTP_QUERY_TITLE Obsolete. Maintained for legacy application compatibility only. HTTP_QUERY_TRANSFER_ENCODING Retrieves the type of transformation that has been applied to the message body so it can be correctly transferred between the sender and recipient. HTTP_QUERY_UPGRADE Retrieves the additional communication protocols that are supported by the server. HTTP_QUERY_URI Receives some or all of the Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) by which the Request-URI resource can be identified. HTTP_QUERY_USER_AGENT Retrieves information about the user agent that made the request.

HTTP_QUERY_VERSION Receives the last response code returned by the server. HTTP_QUERY_VIA Retrieves the intermediate protocols and recipients between the user agent and the server on requests, and between the origin server and the client on responses. HTTP_QUERY_WARNING Retrieves additional information about the status of a response that may not be reflected by the response status code. HTTP_QUERY_WWW_AUTHENTICATE Retrieves the authentication scheme and realm returned by the server.
The following table shows modifiers that can be used with the information values.
Value Description HTTP_QUERY_CUSTOM Causes HttpQueryInfo to search for the header name specified in lpvBuffer and store the header information in lpvBuffer. HTTP_QUERY_FLAG_COALESCE Not supported. HTTP_QUERY_FLAG_NUMBER Returns the data as a 32-bit number for headers whose value is a number, such as the status code. HTTP_QUERY_FLAG_REQUEST_HEADERS Queries request headers only. HTTP_QUERY_FLAG_SYSTEMTIME Returns the header value as a standard Win32 SYSTEMTIME structure, which does not require the application to parse the data. Use for headers whose value is a date/time string, such as "Last-Modified-Time".
- [in, out] Long void pointer to the buffer that receives the information.
- [in, out] Long pointer to a value that contains the length of the data buffer. When the function returns, this parameter contains the address of a value specifying the length of the information written to the buffer. The following list shows the rules that apply when the function returns strings:
- If the function succeeds, lpdwBufferLength specifies the length of the string, in characters, minus 1 for the terminating null.
- If the function fails and ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER is returned, lpdwBufferLength specifies the number of bytes that the application must allocate to receive the string.
- [in, out] Long pointer to a zero-based header index used to enumerate multiple headers with the same name. When calling the function, this parameter is the index of the specified header to return. When the function returns, this parameter is the index of the next header. If the next index cannot be found, ERROR_HTTP_HEADER_NOT_FOUND is returned.
TRUE indicates success. FALSE indicates failure. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.
HttpQueryInfo is used to return response or request headers from an HTTP request.
The following list shows the types of data you can retrieve from HttpQueryInfo:
- strings (default)
- SYSTEMTIME (for Data: Expires:, headers)
- DWORD (for STATUS_CODE, CONTENT_LENGTH, and so on if HTTP_QUERY_INFO_NUMBER has been used)
OS Versions: Windows CE 2.0 and later.
