HttpListenerRequest::ContentEncoding Property

Gets the content encoding that can be used with data sent with the request

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

public:
property Encoding^ ContentEncoding {
	Encoding^ get ();
}

Property Value

Type: System.Text::Encoding
An Encoding object suitable for use with the data in the InputStream property.

An Encoding object can be used to convert byte sequences into character sets (code pages) and characters into byte sequences. This property uses the charset value from the Content-Type header to determine the encoding. If that information is not available, this property returns Encoding::Default.

The following code example demonstrates using the ContentEncoding property.

public static void ShowRequestData (HttpListenerRequest request)
{
    if (!request.HasEntityBody)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("No client data was sent with the request.");
        return;
    }
    System.IO.Stream body = request.InputStream;
    System.Text.Encoding encoding = request.ContentEncoding;
    System.IO.StreamReader reader = new System.IO.StreamReader(body, encoding);
    if (request.ContentType != null)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Client data content type {0}", request.ContentType);
    }
    Console.WriteLine("Client data content length {0}", request.ContentLength64);

    Console.WriteLine("Start of client data:");
    // Convert the data to a string and display it on the console. 
    string s = reader.ReadToEnd();
    Console.WriteLine(s);
    Console.WriteLine("End of client data:");
    body.Close();
    reader.Close();
    // If you are finished with the request, it should be closed also.
}
