' Creates an HttpWebRequest for the specified URL. Dim myHttpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.Create(url), HttpWebRequest) ' Sends the HttpWebRequest and waits for a response. Dim myHttpWebResponse As HttpWebResponse = CType(myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse) Console.WriteLine("Response Received.Trying to Close the response stream..") ' Releases the resources of the response. myHttpWebResponse.Close() Console.WriteLine("Response Stream successfully closed")
