The following example writes the contents of all of the response headers to the console.

				// Creates an HttpWebRequest for the specified URL. 
				HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(url); 
				// Sends the HttpWebRequest and waits for response.
				HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse(); 
				                        
				// Displays all the headers present in the response received from the URI.
				Console.WriteLine("\r\nThe following headers were received in the response:");
				// Displays each header and it's key associated with the response. 
				for(int i=0; i < myHttpWebResponse.Headers.Count; ++i)  
					Console.WriteLine("\nHeader Name:{0}, Value :{1}",myHttpWebResponse.Headers.Keys[i],myHttpWebResponse.Headers[i]); 
				// Releases the resources of the response.
				myHttpWebResponse.Close(); 
// Creates an HttpWebRequest for the specified URL.
HttpWebRequest* myHttpWebRequest =
   dynamic_cast<HttpWebRequest*>(WebRequest::Create(url));
// Sends the HttpWebRequest and waits for response.
HttpWebResponse* myHttpWebResponse =
   dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse*>(myHttpWebRequest->GetResponse());

// Displays all the headers present in the response received from the URI.
Console::WriteLine(S"\r\nThe following headers were received in the response:");
// Displays each header and its key associated with the response.
for (int i=0; i < myHttpWebResponse->Headers->Count; ++i)

   myHttpWebResponse->Headers->Keys->Item[i], myHttpWebResponse->Headers->Item[i]);
