HttpListenerResponse.CopyFrom Method

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

Copies properties from the specified HttpListenerResponse to this response.

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

public:
void CopyFrom (
	HttpListenerResponse^ templateResponse
)
public void CopyFrom (
	HttpListenerResponse templateResponse
)
public function CopyFrom (
	templateResponse : HttpListenerResponse
)

Parameters

templateResponse

The HttpListenerResponse instance to copy.

If you regularly change many properties from their default values to a fixed set of new values, it is convenient to use an HttpListenerResponse instance as a template. Customize the template response once and, instead of configuring each response separately, call the CopyFrom method to configure a new response based on property values in the template response.

The following properties are copied from templateResponse to the current instance.

The following code example demonstrates creating a response by copying a template response.

static string message403;
static void SendBadCertificateResponse(HttpListenerResponse response)
{
    StringBuilder message = new StringBuilder ();
    message.Append ("<HTML><BODY>");
    message.Append ("<p> Error message 403: Access is denied due to a missing or invalid client certificate.</p>");
    message.Append ("</BODY></HTML>");
    message403 = message.ToString();

    // Set up an authentication error response template.
    response.StatusCode = (int) HttpStatusCode.Forbidden;
    response.StatusDescription = "403 Forbidden";
    response.ProtocolVersion = new Version("1.1");
    response.SendChunked = false;
    
    // Turn the error message into a byte array using the 
    // encoding from the response when present.
    System.Text.Encoding encoding = response.ContentEncoding;
    if (encoding == null)
    {
        encoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
        response.ContentEncoding = encoding;
    }
        
    byte[] buffer = encoding.GetBytes (message403);
    response.ContentLength64 = buffer.Length;
    // Write the error message.
    System.IO.Stream stream = response.OutputStream;
    stream.Write(buffer,0,buffer.Length);
    // Send the response.
    response.Close();
}
