When overridden in a descendant class, gets or sets the name of the connection group for the request.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
Any attempt is made to get or set the property, when the property is not overridden in a descendant class.
The property associates specific requests within an application to one or more connection pools.
The WebRequest class is an abstract class. The actual behavior of WebRequest instances at run time is determined by the descendant class returned by the WebRequest.Create method. For more information about default values and exceptions, see the documentation for the descendant classes, such as HttpWebRequest and FileWebRequest.
The property typically associates a group of requests that share a set of credentials with a connection to an Internet resource to avoid potential security failures.
