HttpListenerResponse.StatusDescription Property

Gets or sets a text description of the HTTP status code returned to the client.

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

public string StatusDescription { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The text description of the HTTP status code returned to the client. The default is the RFC 2616 description for the StatusCode property value, or an empty string ("") if an RFC 2616 description does not exist.

The status description typically provides details that explain the StatusCode value.

The following code example demonstrates setting the value of this property.

// When the client is not authenticated, there is no Identity. 
if (context.User == null)
{
    message.Append ("<HTML><BODY><p> Hello local user! </p></BODY></HTML>");
}
else
{
    // Get the requester's identity.
    System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity identity = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent();
    // Construct the response body.
    message.AppendFormat ("<HTML><BODY><p> Hello {0}!<br/>", 
        identity.Name);
    message.AppendFormat ("You were authenticated using {0}.</p>", 
        identity.AuthenticationType);
    message.Append ("</BODY></HTML>");
}

// Configure the response.
HttpListenerResponse response = context.Response;

// Use the encoding from the response if one has been set. 
// Otherwise, use UTF8.
System.Text.Encoding encoding = response.ContentEncoding;
if (encoding == null)
{
    encoding = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8;
    response.ContentEncoding = encoding;
}
byte[] buffer = encoding.GetBytes (message.ToString ());
response.ContentLength64 = buffer.Length;
response.StatusCode = (int) HttpStatusCode.OK;
response.StatusDescription = "OK";
response.ProtocolVersion = new Version ("1.1");
// Don't keep the TCP connection alive;  
// We don't expect multiple requests from the same client.
response.KeepAlive = false;
// Write the response body.
System.IO.Stream stream = response.OutputStream;
stream.Write(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);
