HttpWebRequest.AllowAutoRedirect Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the request should follow redirection responses.

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

public bool AllowAutoRedirect { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_AllowAutoRedirect ()

/** @property */
public void set_AllowAutoRedirect (boolean value)

public function get AllowAutoRedirect () : boolean

public function set AllowAutoRedirect (value : boolean)

Not applicable.

Property Value

true if the request should automatically follow redirection responses from the Internet resource; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

Set AllowAutoRedirect to true if you want the request to automatically follow HTTP redirection headers to the new location of the resource. The maximum number of redirections to follow is set by the MaximumAutomaticRedirections property.

If AllowAutoRedirect is set to false, all responses with an HTTP status code from 300 to 399 is returned to the application.

The following code example uses the AllowAutoRedirect property to allow the request to follow redirection responses.

// Create a new HttpWebRequest Object to the mentioned URL.
HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest=(HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://www.contoso.com");    
myHttpWebRequest.MaximumAutomaticRedirections=1;
myHttpWebRequest.AllowAutoRedirect=true;
HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse=(HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse();    

// Create a new HttpWebRequest Object to the mentioned URL.
HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)
    (WebRequest.Create("http://www.contoso.com"));
myHttpWebRequest.set_MaximumAutomaticRedirections(1);
myHttpWebRequest.set_AllowAutoRedirect(true);
HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)
    (myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse());
