HttpListenerResponse.AddHeader Method

Adds the specified header and value to the HTTP headers for this response.

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

public function AddHeader(
	name : String, 
	value : String
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String

The name of the HTTP header to set.

value
Type: System.String

The value for the name header.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

name is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or an empty string ("").

ArgumentException

You are not allowed to specify a value for the specified header.

-or-

name or value contains invalid characters.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

Calling this method is equivalent to calling the Set method on the collection returned by the Headers property.

If the header specified in name does not exist, this method inserts a new header into the Headers property's collection. If name is present in the collection, this method replaces the existing value with value. To add a value to an existing header without replacing the existing value, use the AppendHeader method.

The following code example demonstrates adding a header using this property.

public static void SetExpirationDate(long seconds, HttpListenerResponse response)
{
    response.AddHeader("Expires", seconds.ToString());
}
