HttpWebRequest.Pipelined Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether to pipeline the request to the Internet resource.

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

public bool Pipelined { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the request should be pipelined; otherwise, false. The default is true.

An application uses the Pipelined property to indicate a preference for pipelined connections. When Pipelined is true, an application makes pipelined connections to the servers that support them.

Pipelined connections are made only when the KeepAlive property is also true.

The following code example prints the value of the Pipelined property to the console.


			// Create a 'HttpWebRequest' object.
			HttpWebRequest	myHttpWebRequest=(HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(myUri);
			// Assign the response object of 'HttpWebRequest' to a 'HttpWebResponse' variable.
			HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse=(HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse();
			// Display the contents of the page to the console.
			Stream streamResponse=myHttpWebResponse.GetResponseStream();
			StreamReader streamRead = new StreamReader( streamResponse );
			Char[] readBuffer = new Char[256];
			int count = streamRead.Read( readBuffer, 0, 256 );
			Console.WriteLine("\nThe contents of HTML page are.......");	
			while (count > 0) 
			{
				String outputData = new String(readBuffer, 0, count);
				Console.Write(outputData);
				count = streamRead.Read(readBuffer, 0, 256);
			}
			Console.WriteLine("\nHTTP Request  Headers :\n\n{0}",myHttpWebRequest.Headers);
			Console.WriteLine("\nHTTP Response Headers :\n\n{0}",myHttpWebResponse.Headers);
			streamRead.Close();
			streamResponse.Close();
			// Release the response object resources.
			myHttpWebResponse.Close();
			Console.WriteLine("\n'Pipelined' property is:{0}",myHttpWebRequest.Pipelined);	
			Console.WriteLine("\nPress 'Enter' Key to Continue......");
			Console.Read();
